  • Summary: Bus rides and train journeys will never be the same again with Gitaroo Man blasting out those power chords as he defends the universe from the clutches of Zowie and the Gravillian family. Utilising the PSP's analogue capabilities to brilliant effect the game will also enable players to battle it out on two PSPs via wi-fi play or join forces in the brand new Duet mode. If you missed out on Gitaroo Man's first outing on PS2 this is your chance to indulge in a rhythm action experience like no other. [KOEI] Expand

    I'm so in love with Gitaroo Man LIVES - it's a fantastically addictive game, repayable as long as you enjoy the music and the challenge, and with lots of difficulty levels and multiplayer modes in the form of Vs and Duet, people with a PSP wielding friend will be able to get even more out of the game.

    One of the best music games on the PSP. Even along side some of it's more fancier competitors it easily stands alone, as a fun and enjoyable adventure with some of the craziest visuals and tunes to ever land on the PSP.
  3. 87
    As is sadly the case most of the time, avid fans of the series will be disappointed and if you have already played the original then you will not want to buy this PSP version, as it offers you nothing apart from going through the experience again and an unnecessary hole in your wallet.

    Maybe material that still feels as fresh, fun and challenging as Gitaroo Man Lives! still deserves an encore.
  5. A glorious soundtrack and a fresh approach to the rhythm action genre makes this a winner - it's bloody hard, mind you. [Sept 2006, p.83]
  6. Some of the best fun that you'll have on PSP, but not quite a 'must have' title. [Oct 2006, p.70]
  7. 60
    A great game, a rhythm/music game that bends the genre in new directions with its creative design, heartily original soundtrack, and unique gameplay system. Not too much of it is new, but there is a little to explore here that's worth at least a few tries, even if you have to put up with some hiccups just to get past it. [JPN Import]

    Gitaroo man and the Lives version on PSP are must have games, this is the only game ive ever gone out and bought the soundtrack to because the songs just get stuk in your brain. I especially like the "metal header" song in the lives version on PSP.

    If you have not played this game yet then what the hell are you waiting for, go do it now.
