Quite the contrary actually, they made it look a hell of a lot easier than it actually is. Not a fan of the genre, but I've heard some Dragonforce, and those guys can fucking shred. Lots of respect in my book.

'Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day.
You fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way.
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town.
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way.' - Pink Floyd
a couple of my buddies have a band that plays progressive metal and he can play yngwie malmsteen, joe satriani, steve vai, dream theater. Fucking amazing guitar players, all those guys put dragonforce to shame.

That stuff is definitely pretty sick and they are really sick guitar players, but i prefer listening to more stuff like Frusciante and Clapton and guys like that whose stuff just sounds more styley instead of that ridiculously fast shit, that , dont get me wrong, is pretty sick and ridiculous to play, but it just doesnt sound like guitar...
