- Sad but true folks. A design flaw with the new Les Paul controller means that it may be almost impossible to grab all of the achievements from the Xbox 360 version. And the PS3 version? It suffers the same problems apparently.
I've been a huge fan of the Guitar Hero series since it arrived on the 360 back in April this year. Incredibly frustrating to begin with, I soon learned that the only way to progress was the learn how to use the controller correctly. The Gibson X-Plorer guitar is possibly one of the most sturdy gaming peripherals I've ever owned, having been used daily since it's arrival (and really put through it's paces on some occasions!) it's never given me the slightest bit of bother. Having never attempted a multi-player game, I was eager to get Guitar Hero 3 on release to have two guitars available - it now seems that dream has been shattered too.
The new Les Paul controller certainly took a bit of getting used to, but with a little time it grew on me. I prefered the smaller form factor and the lighter feeling fret buttons to the more plastic feel of the previous guitar. Two player Guitar Hero was good to go - well, for a while anyway.
One evening, I noticed I was faring particularly badly. If you are anything like me, a bad night on Guitar Hero can be just a tad frustrating....
