Comments on: Guitar Hero II /2008/02/13/guitar-hero-ii/ Spotlight's Game Reviews Fri, 20 Feb 2009 21:12:16 +0000 http://wordpress.org/?v=2.7.1 hourly 1 By: Jesse /2008/02/13/guitar-hero-ii/comment-page-1/#comment-1981 Jesse Wed, 04 Feb 2009 10:04:14 +0000 /2008/02/13/guitar-hero-ii/#comment-1981 Okay, Lacey: He didn't use profanity. He simply said that people are being FAR too strict regarding this game. And I agree. What you all apparently fail to realize is that they CENSOR the swearing or even anything remotely objectionable (in the Guitar Hero: Aerosmith game, they censor the word "high" in the context of "pink gets me high as a kite"). Of all the songs in this game, even the Rage Against the Machine one, only ONE exhibits uncensored profanity (the Jane's Addiction song clearly says "G** D****," but that's only on the PS2 version--it's absent in the XBox 360 edition). If all else fails, though, then yes. Follow Arron's advice and turn the vocals down. Okay, Lacey:

I always check movies here before I take my kids (or even me & my husband) to the movies. Unfortunately, the Bible is a pretty strict book. (I Corinthians 10:31, "Therefore whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God." For an awesome series about rock music & the influence it has on people, see "They Sold Their Souls for Rock N Roll" @ http://www.goodfight.org/ You are obviously a demented person to come on a website using profanity & saying something as moronic as "Jesus would think Guitar Hero is awesome", as if he died on the cross for your enjoyment of Guitar Hero. Anyhow, these songs obviously don't give ANY glory to God whatsoever. That concerns me b/c everytime I walk into Best Buy w/ my 7 & 3 year old, they want to play Guitar Hero & /or Rock Band. I wouldn't mind buying it buy again I don't want to endorse the lyrics or the "artists". So my question for all you gamers out there, is there a way to turn the lyrics or volume of the singing off or way down so that the kids would only be playing the music? @justin sink:

Who cares if the song has satanic references... As long as your not a satanist, then i don't think it should matter... Guitar hero 2 is a really awesome game! It's should be a 5 out of 5! I personally don't think games shouldn't be rated ON RELIGION!!!

So, should we have section for strip clubs-- give 'em an overall rating and then a rating for Christians? Rating for Christians: 1 of 5 (too much nudity) Overall Rating: 5 of 5 (killer babes; great bodies) Come on guys, give me a break. If this is a site, then why are we giving games secular and ratings?

The overall rating is mainly based on how good the gameplay is. Joe, the rating is the one to do with how bad the content is for christians.

But yet, all I seem to read in the reviews (this particular one is reviewed by "evileye"??) and from user comments is that these game aren't "that bad". Daniel (above) writes: "fun for the whole family" and he's talking about a game that endorses some very extreme (sexual content, profanity, etc.) lyrics. What Christianity are you following? I don't believe you follow the same teachings I believe in-- the one's Jesus Christ taught. And then to top it all off, this site gives it a 4.5 rating!
