Guitar Hero Unplugged Fails to Please Fans
In a bid to compete with Rock Band Unplugged, Activision has taken out all the stops and introduced an unplugged version of their popular Guitar Hero game.
This is the first in a series of games from Activision that feature 'realistic' controllers and a brand new system of feedback the publishers have dubbed "Music." The game's controller, which is being hailed as an innovative step to improve the realism of the game features strings, frets, pegs, and comes with sheet music.
"In making a guitar that featured everything a real guitar does, it is our intention to bring our players an experience unrecognizable from playing a real guitar," said a representative from Activision.
But some customers are not excited about the nearly $400 price tag and so called ultra-realism, saying the game is unintuitive and impractical. "This is really hard," said an ambition-less thirty-something after buying the game. "How am I supposed to live out my fantasy as a rock star if I am expected to learn three chords and move my right hand up and down?"
