Great game, but a few issues ...
on January 12, 2010
First off, I still couldn't believe I got Guitar Hero World Tour for my PC even though there is NO MENTION of this game on the Aspyr Web Site. It's like, does this thing REALLY exist? Well, I just got my copy yesterday from Amazon so it must. No problems installing it ... game started fine.
Cranked up the resolution to 1920x1080 (nice) on my LCD TV and turned on my wireless XBOX360 guitars (it connected fine). I don't have drums, but I did connect a USB Microphone in and it detected that. There did seem to be some sort of glitch in the menu system, as the game kept saying that your data will be overwritten and was covering all the menu choices! eventually i had to quit the game and then relaunch.
Game worked fine. However a few complaints. I have two XBOX360 controllers and two XBOX360 Wireless Guitars. I started my XBOX360 Guitar as Player one and one of my controllers as Player Two. However, the game only recognized my guitar as Player Two and had Player One as the Keyboard/USB Mic. Problem with this is that the Vocals cannot use an XBOX360 Controller for navigation -- only the keyboard (unlike the console counterpart).
Graphics looked great -- but no PC graphic settings for controlling Anti-Aliasing and stuff like that -- just resolution. So a kick-ass video card won't do much here (but you do need a decent one though).
I hadn't played too much of the game yet, but I really want to try out the drums.
I tried going on-line and ran into one problem. When entering the License Code, you MUST enter the dashes "-" in between each set of numbers or the on-line connection will fail.
Also, don't even bother trying to register this game on the Aspyr Website since it THERE IS NO MENTION OF THIS GAME.
I really hope Aspyr gives some PC support soon -- I sense I still may run into other issues.
