Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock User Reviews

7.2

Rock Out... For The Third Time.

The good:

~Impressive track list, including big hits such as Heart's "Barracuda".
~Good graphics and art style, echoing the urban rock feel.
~Multiplayer mode is fun and a great way to battle friends in a whole new way.

The bad:

~The formula seems a little tired after two renditions of the same game.
~Some graphics have seams and glitch often.
~Some animation is awkward or jerky.
~The PS2 version has no online mode.
~The game gets a little repetitive after you've completed the story mode once.

Summary:

Guitar Hero, the game series which made a whole generation of people into rock stars, has come out with its third copy of the original, subtitled "Legends of Rock". Slash is on the cover, and the track list has never been bigger or more full of big hits. But is it really THAT much different from its predecessors?

As everyone probably knows, "Guitar Hero" is played with a fake guitar controller, complete with frets and whammy bar. As notes come up on the screen, players simultaneously press the colored buttons on the neck and press down on the switch where it normally would have been pluck...

Put down the Air guitar...

Summary:

The first ever Guitar Hero game I have ever played and if the third instalment is anything to base its predecessors on I can see exactly how the game got to where it is today. The game package comes with the game disc, the actual wireless guitar controller and a mini accessory kit to custom your guitar's appearance.

--Storyline--


Naturally you assume the role of a rookie rockstar to begin with. You can select from a short number of appearances for your rocker from the Hendrix style jammer to the conventional Brit punk, it's entirely up to you and you can always purchase extra clothing and st...

Has the series been perfected?

The good:

Amazing hammer-ons and pull-offs.
Wireless guitar controller included.
Great song list.
Replay value is high.

The bad:

Nothing really.

Summary:

With the Guitar Hero series more popular than ever, Guitar Hero III has a lot to live up too. Its predecessor's have grabbed many a people's attention, and it will not let go. Can GH3 keep the hype alive?

Something that Red Octane has been good about is song selection. This time around, they have brought a better group of songs than ever seen before. A lot more of them, too. You can play many hits such as, The Devil Went Down to Georgia, Slow Ride, School's Out, Mississippi Queen, and many more. The set list is stacked with many songs, as well as the bonus songs list. To unlock the bonus son...

One of the most unique gaming experiences to date

Summary:

Guitar Hero III is the sequel to the best-selling game for the PS2 and Xbox 360. It features some of the most unique - and yes, best - gameplay of any game on any console, even going as far as to have it's own controller. However, with Harmonix no longer working on the GH series, did Neversoft manage to let the newest addition live up to the Guitar Hero name? Are the songs catchy enough for GHII veterans to fork out the cash to buy it, and for those looking to be introduced to the GH world, is it worth it to pick up this as opposed to GHII? The answers to these questions and more will be an...

Become a Legend of Rock

The good:

  • Great peripheral
  • Great song selection
  • Online play
  • Score tracking

The bad:

  • No downloadable content
  • Rigid animations

Summary:

Guitar Hero III doesn't try to be anything that it's not. It's basically the same game we saw in Guitar Hero II, but with new songs and a few new things thrown in to give it an edge. And it is still just as fun as the previous installations.

The Peripheral

Guitar Hero III for the Wii has what I think is the sleekest peripheral of all the versions. The cool white guitar goes perfect with the Wii's style, and everything feels nice when you hold it. I really like how the Remote looks in the front of the guitar, and the analog stick works a lot better than pointing the guitar would.

I wasn't...

-Amazing soundtrack
-Over 50% of career songs are master tracks, and over 70% in the total set-list are master tracks
-Replayability level is very high
-Online play, no lag on online play
-Graphics are smooth and crisp
-More difficult
-New modes in multi-player, and co-op career

Summary:

I will tell you right off the bat- I never thought I would give a game a perfect 5/5, but this game was perfect in every way. From the soundtrack to the game-play, I was enjoying myself from start to finish. If you are a Guitar Hero fanatic, interested in Guitar, or are just looking for the game to start you off in the Guitar Hero series- this game will start you off. Here's a detailed breakdown of the game:

Gameplay: 10/10

The gameplay has improved dramatically from the previous three games. The Guitar itself feels so much smoother to use, and the notes are much easier to hit. The hammer-on ...
