simulates the thrill and the glory of rock 'n' roll. Choose from eight different characters, from classic rockers to metal heads, and build a career as a working rock musician.
The real kick is in the gameplay, which incorporates an included guitar-shaped controller. It allows you to "play along" with 30 awesome rock tunes by pressing fret buttons and working a responsive and durable strum bar. There's even a whammy bar for extreme action. The songs include selections from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Boston, Audioslave and White Zombie.
Four difficulty levels test your skills and six venues will place you before increasingly larger audiences. You love rock music. You're a master at air guitar. Take the next step and walk a career's worth of miles in a rocker's shoes.

Cancelled Xbox version
The Xbox version of Guitar Hero
was being developed by Mad Catz
, but they pulled out because of a lawsuit with Konami
, meaning that the game was only released on PS2.
The knobs on the amplifiers as the game loads go up to 11, rather than 10. This is a reference to a scene in the film This Is Spinal Tap
