Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80's

Post by Wind Adept » Thu Jan 03, 2008 5:47 pm

This game is awesome! though there's very little to unlock in that game, and that in comparison with other Guitar Hero games, has a fairly smaller number of tracks , but since nearly ALL the tracks are good, then who cares? like guitar hero 2, this game features hammer-ons and pull-offs, some of the songs included in this game are

Bang your Head
I Ran
18 and Life
No one like you
I wanna Rock
Synchronicity II
Ballroom Blitz
Police Truck
Turning Japanese

The Difficulty is pretty good ( I still need to clear some songs on hard, and I only cleared 4 songs on expert :) )

If you like 80's music and you don't mind cover versions (in which they did a good job at making them sound like the originals) then you may consider this game, though even now it's a bit pricey .

Only 4 on expert? I can beat the whole game on it. :) But then again, that's just me.

Haven't played Rock the 80's, but I've played 2 and 3. Hard on Guitar Hero 2 is way harder than it is on 3 (And 1, from what I've heard). But I love playing with the guitar controller, letting us who are tone-deaf play uber cool songs like YYZ, Through the Fire and Flames, and Rock You Like a Hurricane. Oh what fun indeed

I have now beat 5 more songs on expert since my last post, I have got 5 star on evry song on, easy, normal, and most of them onheard, and I did it all without the guitar controller,(completing passages with alot of notes in a row can be pretty challenging without the guitar)

I am now currently playing guitar hero 3, the difficulty level in this one is quite a bit greater than in rocks the '80's, I'm more than halfway done hard (I began playing on normal) and it's my third day of renting it, I can now do far more difficult note passages (the beginning songs on hard has the difficulty equivelant of all the songs on expert in rocks the '80s) the battles are ok, I only find the battle against slash hard in particular, well that's all the progress I've made in the game so far :D

If you find Slash hard, enjoy the final boss then. He'll murder you ^_^. Guitar Hero 3 is also the easiest of the Guitar Hero games (to me, anyway), because of their hammer-ons and pull-offs. In 1/2/80's/Aerosmith/whatever, you have to press the button in time with the note to preform a hammer-on. However, in 3, you just have to be holding it, it doesn't matter how long you've been holding it for. Makes long hammer-on sections much easier (Looks at Cult of Personality and My Name is Jonas)

Come to think of it, hammer ons and pull off ARE much easier in 3, and I found lou easier than slash, I even found it funny that the song used in lou's battle is The Devil goes down to Georgia, lol

Well you're crazy if you found Lou easier than Slash, or you're on medium =3. My favourite part of playing The Devil Went Down to Georgia was "Johnny said "Devil just come on back if you ever wanna try again, and I told you once you son of a... I'm the best there's ever been!"" My laughing caused my rock meter to drop to yellow :D
