There are some things that could have made this game slightly better such as a multiplayer option, whammy bar and better backgrounds. These things all might make you lean more towards the commercial games. However, because there is infinite possibility to play new songs, this is slightly more than you're run-of-the-mill clone. I would highly recommend this game for a quick fix of fun.

Frets on Fire is really entertaining because you don’t need to know how to play the guitar: you just bang away on your keyboard and come up with something. The hundreds of songs available from the internet will keep you rocking away for hours. Add to that a friendly interface and a hilarious tutorial and you get one of the most original free games out there. Rock on!

Tout comme StepMania, Frets On Fire ne brille pas par son originalité mais propose un clone réussi de Guitar Hero. On appréciera notamment les possibilités d'édition des chansons. Un jeu pour ceux dont l'ampli monte jusqu'à 11.

Frets on Fire na tom není po herní stránce bůhvíjak a onen starý známý stereotyp se časem jistojistě dostaví. Jedná se však o zajímavou a do značné míry originální záležitost, která si může klidně dovolit vyplazovat jazyk na všechny ty miliardy klonů Marií, Soniců a často velmi diskutabilně hratelných space shooterů...

Frets on Fire is a basic but fun music game that's similar to Guitar Hero. Although users seeking a full-featured guitar game will likely find this one lacking, we thought it was very good for what it is.

FoF es uno de esos juegos que siempre recomendamos a los conocidos. A cualquier amigo que se aburra. A cualquier amante de la diversión fácil y sin complicaciones. El título parte de una idea que a priori podría parecer absurda como es la de jugar con un teclado, pero a la larga, y sobre todo tras probar lo sencillo que resulta tocar algunas canciones, nos acabaremos acostumbrando al estilo de juego.
