"Great Game"

December 14, 2008  |  By kivbirdzta

 |  Version: Frets on Fire 1.2.512

Pros

I like the way you can add songs to it that other people made (cuz i know that i ain't stressing to do it myself) and its free.

Cons

Some of the set keys don't work together as in its invalid to press F5 and F3 and F2 at the same time, and that's needed for some songs i play. So its kinda disfunctional in certain aspects

Summary

its a good game with minor flaws

"Good experiment for programmers, Not good for end user."

October 30, 2008  |  By Baneste

 |  Version: Frets on Fire 1.2.512

Pros

Visually, I think is OK. Besides the way it looks, wich is not impressive, I didn't find anything I would like in this program. Probably it would be appropiate for professionals musicians.

Cons

Lacks basic options like configurability or options.

Summary

I think is a waste of time downloading this program.

"Good overall free game."

August 15, 2008  |  By mattyk41

 |  Version: Frets on Fire 1.2.512

Pros

It does have song writing capabilities and you can download from other games.... but you've read that in other posts already haven't you.

Cons

So so game that got boring for me after a few times through each song. It got boring for shorlty into it.

Summary

Overall, pretty kewl FREE game. Again, the optimum word being that it is FREE. As best as I could figure it out, before I got bored with overall game, you alter existing songs and save your work in order to "write" your own songs. My suggestion is that you go into settings and alter the keys to better suit your key preferences as the default keys are F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 and you pick (strum) your guitar with the "enter" key. If you prefer to pick (strum) your guitar with your left and and hit chords with right hand you'll want to alter this in the main menu. I don't have GH, GHII or any other GH title so unfortunately no downloads for me. The game crashes out VERY often but no big deal for me as it lets you pick up where you left off before crashing. Now I don't know if that's true for writing songs if you can just pick up where you left off before a crash so don't quote me on that.
