I heard a lot of bad noise about performance, but it runs flawlessly for me at 1370x768 (my HDTV resolution) with the graphics maxed. Maybe my PC is just badass by 2007 standards, or maybe I have a newer version that includes some lag-fixing patch. One suggestion: before you start the game, hit ctrl-alt-delete and see how many processes are running. If you have more than 30 (on XP), you're doing it wrong. Google around and figure out which ones you can kill.
I haven't tried the online yet, so I can't comment on that. The only complaint I have is the lack of downloadable songs, even though they were promised to us and even have a section programmed into the game. Why they couldn't give us the songs that the console users got I'll never understand.
Overall, this is a great game, and a super value at $30 (it's actually cheaper to get this bundle than to buy either product separately). If you want guitar hero without buying a next gen console, this is the way to go.
SUMMARY: Advertised NOT to work with x64, but at least in Windows 7 64-bit, it DOES WORK! Easy installation, good music, fun game.
I've always wanted to play this game, but my low-end laptop didn't have the GPU power to play it. Now that I have my gamer rig, this was one of the games I just had to get. Amazing price via Amazon, and it got here pretty quickly.
Unpacking was a breeze, as was installation. Running Windows 7 x64 had me worrying that I'd need to format the computer and have XP running side by side with 7, but just to try it out, I went ahead and popped in the DVD. Installation went smoothly and the game looks great. I was scared about the drivers for the guitar, but I went ahead and plugged it in, and 7 installed the drivers in just under a minute, which was awesome.
At least for me, the game isn't easy, but the music is great, and hopefully with practice it'll be easier for me to keep up. It has tutorials in-game for everything you'll need to master the game, and also has online multiplayer which is pretty cool.
Anyway, for the price, I think this is definitely a game worth anybody's collection :-)
The bottom line is: buy a ps2 or a wii and get games for that so that you can play multiplayer and save you hard drive space...
