The complete darkness is agonizing. All that reminds you you're conscious is the cool puddles of sweat in your palms and the indistinguishable chatter of hundreds of headbangers ready to hang on your every move. You flex your fingers, hopelessly begging for blood to keep flowing to them. Years of practice and determination have come down to this. Your mind races in rewind, and your fear and anxiety take over. They yelled at you hundreds of times to turn it down. You were told to cut your moppy hair every Sunday for six years. They said you weren't good enough, and you sat through a thousand lectures about "the future" and your wasted youth. But you sliced through the fog of negativity, and all that stands before you now is a dream ready for the taking. The spotlight comes up, bathing you in blinding light. A collage of silhouettes erupt as your drummer counts down. This is your one chance — it's time to rock out or cop out. Are you ready to take your first step towards rock-and-roll superstardom? When the lights come up, will you be signing autographs or unemployment papers?

Guitar Hero simulates the thrill and the glory of rock 'n' roll. Choose from eight different characters, from metalhead to classic rocker, and build a career as a working rock musician. The real kick is in the gameplay, which incorporates a guitar-shaped controller for added realism (not included). Play along with 30 awesome rock tunes from some of the greatest bands in history, such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Boston, Audioslave and White Zombie. Four difficulty levels test your skills and six venues place you before increasingly larger audiences. Air guitar is for airheads. Take the next step and experience life as a rock legend.
