    Anyone played this?

    I picked it up sunday. its pretty cool.

    you'll like it if you are into DDR and shit. basically you have a guitar controller and strum it while hitting various combinations of notes and chords. its gets fucking hard though. im playing my way through medium. cant wait till i get home :lol:

    i dont like guitars.

    i like this though, it takes alot of skill. i figured it would be cakewalk compared to the other "interactive" type ps2 games i have.

    Most likely an older version- kind of like how DDR has been around since the late 90s, but is only starting to hit it big in the US. We were playing it on a Dreamcast and an imported JDM PS2.

    is it real though?

    i mean, does it through up chrods and stuff? i play guitar, so i think it would be awkward as hell if it wasn't "real"

    no, it's got buttons where the first 4 or 5 frets are and a strummer where strings should be. I agree, as a guitarist and bassist, it would be hard for me to get used to something like that. It's about as similar to playing a real guitar as DDR is to real dancing.

    so you can play 5 buttons? there's no 6 strings (or 6 buttons) per fret?

    it's not that I think it isn't hard, it's just weird if you know how to play guitar, and then have to transition to something that kinda feels like a guitar, but isn't a guitar.

    its more about having rhythm than knowing how to play a real a guitar...and it definitely helps if you know the songs youre playing on there...so you know the rhythm the song goes with...buuuuut...advantages of being able to play a real guitar are the ability to maneuver your fingers to all of the buttons well...
