The original Guitar Hero was frequently referenced by game professionals as one of their favorite titles of 2005, and has gone on to both critical and commercial success, most recently ranking second in PS2 game sales for February 2006 in North America.

Guitar Hero II arrives with a new track list, new venues and additional play modes – including the ability to transform the original Guitar Hero SG Controller into a rhythm, lead or bass guitar.

Available guitar tracks include lead, rhythm or bass tracks, depending upon the song. The Guitar Hero SG Controller used in the first installment will also be compatible with the new game.
