Diet Guitar Hero
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
