Beatmania drops stateside tomorrow. It’s only been what, a decade? Now Konami needs to start bringing over the rest of their music game library.

Except for Guitar Freaks.

They missed the boat on that one. That money is lost.

Guitar Hero is a better music game. I’ve played both. Guitar Freaks may have come first, but Guitar Hero has the better music selection, which is the most important part of a music game. There are gameplay options that can use some tweaking. RedOctane would do well to pull a few features out of Konami’s guitar case.

Such as, the option to play Bass.

Let me break it down SAT Style:

Guitar Hero :: Guitar Freaks as Pump it Up :: Dance Dance Revolution

I could use some guitar interpretations of classical music on one of the seven Guitar Hero games they have planned for this year and next.

I’ll just keep playing until then.
