I'm playing Guitar Hero just now - just completed medium difficulty last night. There's still one song I can't complete though.
i've completed all the songs and bonus songs on medium for both guitar hero I & II,
currently going through them again on hard, that 5th fret makes things so much more difficult.
Man I want both of these games so badly....I'm not allowed to buy them until Mrs Carlos has finished her Masters in September, cos she wants to play them too!

Download Frets of Fire for your PC in the meantime. Gameplay is very similar and it works surprisingly well if you have a standard keyboard you can pick up to play. There's a variety of add-on songs available and you can make your own, as well as being able to import songs from Guitar Hero to your PC should you rent or borrow the PS2 version...

Edit- and its free :D

2nd Edit - and it works with a Guitar Hero controller if you have a PS2 to PC adapter :D :D

Got about three hours into Red Faction last night, then died. THEN realised that there was no auto-save and I hadn't saved AT ALL since the start. Grrr! Hate when that happens, but I'll go through it again since I was actually really enjoying the game until that point.

Yeah, I'd say so. The Warriors is a decent level based beat em up with some cool violent moves. Semi free roaming (you tend to be tunnelled down a set of streets, though there's some freedom within that).

Driver 76 I've only played the first couple of missions. Looking good so far, presentation is nice and the cars seem suitably weighty. Just got to my first on-foot section and not so keen on that, but then I think thats always the weakest point in these type of games. Coming immediately after The Warriors which is so good at it probably makes it worse.

Is Guitar Hero any easier? I imagine the guitar controller makes life easier?

You play the tutorial?

Frets on Fire is aimed more towards experienced players.

Guitar Hero starts off slightly easier and because it has a range of tracks it gradually builds. I struggled initially, getting scores mostly around the 80-90% mark. Going back now I can 100% easy songs.

How it works is the same though, I'm surprised it hasn't been forced to shut down.

The program kept crashing (runtime error) whenever I tried to run the tutorial.

In fact, it crashes a lot.
