Guitar Praise 

 

Long time readers of Family Friendly Gaming know how much I enjoy Christian video games. I have lost track of how many games I know would reach the next level if they included Christian content. Guitar Praise is a Christian version of Guitar Hero. A lengthy song list of Christian artists can be played in this Personal Computer (PC) based video game. The guitar connects wirelessly to a little device plugged into the USB port. That way you can move to the groove. I found myself jamming quite a bit with Guitar Praise. Since my hair is growing out I looked the part of a rock and roll star as well.

We have played almost all of the current music games here at Family Friendly Gaming. My initial reaction to the graphics in Guitar Praise is it was lacking. A lot of it felt plain to me. But ya’ll know me, I keep digging. I do not go with my first impression. I noticed that Guitar Praise has special effects that are pretty cool. The lyrics are put up on the screen. There are background variations. I believe this area could use some upgrades in sequels, but it never hinders the game.

I counted fifty-two different top notch Christian songs that ome with Guitar Praise. That is before you start counting in downloadable add on content. The lyrics are fantastic, and the songs range from praise and worship to Christian metal. Artists like Paul Baloche, Whitecross, and Petra are beside Skillet, Superchick, Thousand Foot Krutch, and Pillar.  DC Talk, Newsboys, and tobyMac can also be found in Guitar Praise.

There is a fantastic amount of unlockable content in Guitar Praise. This PC game starts with a few songs, and after getting a high enough score then more songs are added. This continues for quite awhile. Two players can jam together in Guitar Praise, just make sure you have two guitars. Everytime I unlocked more songs I found a few more I wanted to play. I feel that Guitar Praise is worth the price of admission, especially if you wished there was a safe content version of Guitar Hero.

I have been having a lot of fun playing Guitar Praise. I project I will continue to do so for months to come. The controls work fairly well in Guitar Praise. I did occasionally run into a problem with timing. I thought I hit it on the button, but the game said missed. In some songs I had a real problem with this, and in others I breezed right to a high score. I let my kids try Guitar Praise, and they had problems. They have gotten used to having to only hit the buttons (and not strum) on the easiest setting (including in other music games on the market).

Guitar Praise is safe for the entire family, and I will be recommending it to friends, family, and pastors that I know. There are two areas where I can see improvements, and yes I want a sequel to this game. I am curious to see if Digital Praise does an entire band game. I would also like to see this game ported to the consoles at some point. As far as I can tell Guitar Praise gets the highest score of any music game Family Friendly Gaming has reviewed (up to this point).
