    One of my favorite rhythm games. The only others that even compete with Gitaroo Man are Elite Beat Agents, Ouendan and Ouendan 2. Great soundtrack, good graphics, and the star of the show, the gameplay.

  1. Arguably the most original and inventive rhythm game since the advent of "Dance Dance Revolution" or the original "Parappa the Rapper," and it's easily one of the best rhythm games for the PlayStation 2.
  2. A refreshing sip of musical ambrosia.
  3. For the most part this is a fairly solid example of the genre, although positioning the cone can feel somewhat erratic thanks to the slightly jerky controls.
