The curtain becomes nauseating. You've stared at it for what seems like eternity. You sweat as the rumbles of an anxious crowd rattle the stage. This is your big moment. After years of hard work and expended creative energy, your dreams may be crushed in a matter of seconds. When the curtain rises, your music career will reach its coda. You'll either knock the crowd off its feet with stellar strumming and killer riffs, etching a rock reputation that may someday lead you to sold-out stadiums and arenas. Or you'll bomb, having to earn your living on the sidewalk with an open guitar case. Fame and fortune begin with fingers and frets. Do you have what it takes to become the next rock-and-roll legend, or are you all thumbs?

Picking up where its extremely popular predecessor left off, Guitar Hero II expands your playing options by letting you play two different guitar tracks per song, selecting from rhythm, bass and lead, depending on the track. This smashing sequel follows up the original with more than 55 killer new tracks, including hits from rock legends Van Halen, Aerosmith, Guns N' Roses, Avenged Sevenfold and more. All-new multiplayer modes let you form a duo with a friend in Cooperative mode, or shred riffs back and forth in Pro Face-Off and Face-Off modes. All guitar heroes started somewhere — try out the all-new Practice mode to master specific sections of music or even slow down the track, and take your first step towards superstardom.
