REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

Guitar Hero III
Posted on Wednesday, October 24 2007 @ 08:39:53 Eastern

I don't know if you all know but the Guitar Hero III demo has been released on Xbox Live. After playing three songs on Expert I can say it still retains the GH charm but has obviously undergone a graphical overhaul with textures appearing smoother and crisper and the interface is improved too. The demo only gives access to quick play but it gives away that there's another tab for bonus songs and yet another for downloadable songs (accessed by pressing different fret buttons). The in game HUD has had an upgrade, the notes still appear on a scrolling guitar neck but fit more with an 80-90's visual style and an extra little feature is that the game now displays how many successful notes you've made in a row. One thing I did notice is that the sound effects when you get a note wrong are harder to pick out now, maybe that's because I was on expert with new songs and was trying to concentrate a bit more than usual but that's how it struck me first time through. I wouldn't say this is going to be a huge upgrade but who was expecting them to reinvent the wheel?
