I have only played it once at a mate's house but it was enough to make me want to crack out my guitar which I hadn't played in 10 years or so and start playing again. The sound was great with no noticeable lag, but I don't know what set-up he had as there are reports of lag with if you use HDMI for video and audio.
There are a good range of different tracks and a couple of simple but addictive mini-games.
As you progress you can unlock effects pedals and just use them in a 'jam' mode where you use the game as an effects pedal and amp.
It also adjusts the difficulty mid-track depending on how well you are doing so can be used by anybody.
I only had a whistle-stop tour of the game but that is what I picked up from it.
I am looking out for getting it myself, but after the price comes down a bit. So I recommend it, but it depends on how much you want it as to whether you are willing to pay over £50.00 for it or not.
Hope this can help until a professional review.
