For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

What do these ratings mean?

The Good: Fun quirky gameplay, decent graphics, nice groovy soundtrack

The Bad: Weird story that is hard to follow, annoying voices, extremely short, no replay value

Gitaroo Man is a strange game on it's own right. It's quirky Japanese base is very different from American rhythm games but this shouldn't turn you away. While the story is very strange and hard to understand and makes almost no sense it's still there. There are plenty of CG cut scenes to gawk at and the voices are well...tolerable I guess. The gameplay is what's best here though while you use the analog nub to control your cone you press circle when the wave reach the center point. Then you can defend yourself against the enemy by pressing buttons at the right time. Oh yeah I forgot to mention, you use your Gitaroo to defeat enemies in a battle. You start out by charging your life bar and then you defend yourself against the enemy. After that you attack your enemy until it's weak and then you finish him off. Of course if you miss buttons your life goes down. This game is extremely short though and the difficulty is all over the place. The graphics are pretty decent and don't hurt your eyes. If you're bored with all the PSP games you've played go ahead and pick this game up and you'll be happy.
