What It Is
Players adopt the role of lead guitarist helping band members to become stars to win the battle of the bands contest. Players move through various levels, which become more challenging and rewarding, to unlock new aspects of the game. The gameplay will be familiar to fans of Guitar Hero, but it's a bit simpler and targeted to younger players. Still, it's challenging enough to engage kids as they learn to rock out and score points. On the Wii, The Air-G is a four-button device that slips over the Wii-Mote to simulate guitar frets. The PS2 version is compatible with all 5-button controllers. Pop Star Guitar features music from Miley Cyrus, Maroon 5, Fall Out Boy, Rihanna, Jonas Brothers, and more.
