    Same Guitar Hero gameplay, removed co-op Multiplayer (WHY?!) added a new songlist (Most of which is terrible, but to each your own.) and upped the difficulty somewhat (Still the same difficulties - Easy, Medium, Hard and Expert but if you've played the previous games you'll notice that they are harder.) Boosted somewhat by it's online capabilities but it's still the Same Guitar Hero gameplay, removed co-op Multiplayer (WHY?!) added a new songlist (Most of which is terrible, but to each your own.) and upped the difficulty somewhat (Still the same difficulties - Easy, Medium, Hard and Expert but if you've played the previous games you'll notice that they are harder.)

    Looks good, but still laggy even after a nice graphics card and ram upgrade in hard and expert mode. A 3.0 P4 computer with 2g ram and 512 ddr2 graphics card makes the game barely playable in medium.
    Multiplayer still does not work, and there are no downloads in the download section EVEN AFTER CHRISTMAS.
    Just another game that was released before its complete by a greedy company

  1. The PC version is a nice attempt that finally gives PC gamers the chance to experience one of the best game franchises to start up in the past few years. However, the laggy performance and slowdown makes the PC version pale in comparison to its console brethren.

    A solid port of a fairly awesome game. If not for the high system demands and random slowdowns, it might actually compete with the 360 and Wii for the best version available.

    Damn, is this one fine game. If you've ever dreamed of shredding blistering licks in front of an adoring audience, you need to pick up Guitar Hero III.
