    The lag is pretty much random depending on your hardware.

    Just because yours doesn't lag, good for you, but it's really not helpful to say "ignore people who say it lags" or "upgrade your PC".

    Sometimes it works fine on an average PC, sometimes it lags on a high end PC. I chop and change my hardware around every few days, always trying out new motherboards, CPU's etc. I have experienced unplayable lag (skt AM2 AMD X2 6000), slightly annoying lag (skt 939 AMD X2 4800), and no lag at all (Intel Q6600).

    Adjusting the graphics settings or video/audio calibration won't help you much, when my set-up suffered from lag I spent ages trying to tweak it, with little or no improvement.

    In my opinion the game is flawed as it will not function at a playable level on SOME PC's that are better than the recommended spec. Maybe another patch would fix this (v1.1 didn't).

    My advice would be to take a chance and buy it anyway, and if it lags then send it back. If your PC meets the requirements and it still doesn't work, you're entitled to a refund.

    Finally Guitar Hero arrives on the PC. I've had this game for the past 3 to 4 months and so far the experience is pretty much spot on. Running on a Dell Inspiron 530, Dual Core2 Processor (2.66Ghz), Ati Radeon 2600 HD Graphics Card & 4GB RAM, which I feel is fairly high end (a system based on being able to run Crysis), still has trouble on the Japan level of the game. There are certain angles that causes the game to lag - which on the Expert level can get very frustrating! However this problem can be rectified by choosing another venue. The career mode of the game is spot on and a joy to play. The multiplayer features are OK but investing in another controller may be a good idea (the Xplorer that comes with the came is an Xbox 360 controller with a wire - so i don't know if these are available.
    The main problem with the Console conversion is that Downloadable Content is unavailable on the PC version. This does hinder the enjoyment of the game as you are full aware how many more songs are available, yet unable to play!. The section of the game says "coming soon" but after browsing the Internet I am yet to find news as to when this is coming!
    Overall I have given a 4/5 as it is a brillant game - great controls and excellent song list - and i'm also glad the PC is being recognized as a gaming system again - however it seems more effort needs to be put in to make the games have the same features, and not punishing the people who choose not to own a games console

    This is one of the most addictive games I've played for a while!
    I play this game for several hours every night, well, until my hand starts to hurt anyway.
    It runs like a dream too, no lag or sync issues to report, although I use a high-end gamer system (C2D E3750, 4GB RAM, 8800 Ultra).
    If your getting lag, consider defragging your hard disk prior to install, turn off any unnecessary processes (including AV software), and drop the graphics settings somewhat. There's a patch on the GH website too, which addresses some issues and also adds some extra GFX settings.
    This game is just simply awesome. Rewarding and addictive, like great games should be.
    I hook my guitar up to my mate's 360 for co-op mode jammin. Which just adds a whole new level to the game.
    Well worth the outlay, and totally worth the 5 stars I'm giving it.
