Wal-Mart Breaks 'Guitar Hero II' (PS2) Street Date

by Rainier on Oct. 26, 2006 @ 12:46 p.m. PDT

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.

Experience rock-nirvana with the new Multiplayer Co-op Mode where band mates collaborate in order to beat songs, with each guitarist playing a separate guitar track. The second player can now choose a rhythm or bass guitar part to intermingle with the lead guitar riffs, working together to produce each song and thrill the audience to rock ecstasy.
