    As a game to pick up here and there just to jam through, Gitaroo couldn't rock any harder. [Feb 2002, p.107]

    A fun game for a while, offering players cool music a weird story, and intense gameplay. [Feb 2002, p.44]

    A great combination of frantic, Japanese guitar rock and wacky anime-inspired action. [Feb 2002, p.148]
  4. The music alone will draw you back for a few repeat plays, just don’t expect it to last much longer than a single rental period.
