    Ever wanted to be a rock star? Of course you have, what an absurd question. Now, instead of thinking you're a gamer, you can think you're a rock star - without the groupies, fans, money or you know, all that stuff - thanks to this open source version of Guitar Hero.

    Yes, Frets on Fire is an amazing game. It turns the ambitious rock star fantasy we all have up to eleven, allowing you to rock out with nothing more than your humble keyboard.

    While holding the board like a guitar, you hold the "string" you want to play. F1 for example represents the highest pitch, down to F5 and when you play the note, enter is your pick. While I found the controls quite cumbersome, the mechanic of the whole thing is nothing short of excellent. The game offers heaps of songs, modes and a song editor, it also boasts an impressive online quadrant of gamer/rockstars who have a large bank of additionals for you to enjoy. This game is definitely a keeper.

    This game is AWESOME. It's one of my all time favorites. I'll play it till the end of time.

    I don't know whether that's good or not, but this game has actually replaced my real guitar...

    I got like 10GB of custom songs, so it'll take me a few years to play them all! Song packs are available on torrents.

    I found the controls to be too difficult. Shift-a-s-d-space for frets and num_7 for pick seem to be a lot more comfortable. I hope I'm being helpful. I believe it's really worth it.

    I played Guitar Hero. I sucked at it.

    I played this game. I sucked at it.

    Logical conclusion: It's just like Guitar Hero! :D

    It's a bit difficult to get used to your keyboard being your guitar, but the loads of custom songs are more than just one good reason to get this game. Once you're used to it, you won't stop playing it. Believe me.

    One word: Mods. With this, Frets on Fire becomes probably the best open source game of all time. I was a long time player before I finally grew out of Frets on Fire and Guitar Hero. Frets on Fire just became too laggy and Guitar Hero no longer appealed to me. It's still a great party game but no longer a big interest of mine.

    Never played real Guitar Hero, but this game rocks! If you've never played Guitar Hero, start on easy songs like Iron Man. You can get that and all the songs from Guitar Hero at Get the game, go to the site. Worth every megabyte!

    It is a real nice game. there are also mods to make it just like GH2. A must if you like GH but don't own it or cant run GHIIIPC!
