Third Time's Not So Charming

 

Yeah, this review of Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock is late. Rock star late!

Solid, but not nearly as jaw-droppingly awesome as the previous entries, Neversoft made the most of their time with the game, but sadly I think it needed just a bit more time.

Old-timers will notice a subtle change to how the game processes button impacts. RedOctane has confirmed button timing has been increased a hair to allow for better odds of hitting notes at the right time. This is a key adjustment when playing on the...

The basic formula is still fun ; Wireless guitar rules ; Boss battles a nice variation ; Online and coop play ; Lots of original songs

Bad pause button placement ; Is the series growing stale

It’s hard to imagine where Guitar Hero III is headed next with Rock Band aiming to dethrone the champion. Aside from downloadable expansion songs, there’s only so far you can push a rhythm based game without straying outside the box. No matter...

You'd have to try really hard to mess up Guitar Hero III. The developers at Neversoft, taking over the series from creator Harmonix, do no such thing. Instead, they do a (mostly) good job of introducing subtle improvements, adding a few new features,...

Harmonix is no longer affiliated with the Guitar Hero franchise as they are off to do their own new musical game. The guys at Neversoft have taken over though so the series is in good hands. Does Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock live up to the previous...

The guitar makes this game more frustrating than fun and I've yet to connect to anyone for online play.

The Game: The Guitar Hero series has been a favorite of mine since the day the original title appeared on the PS2. I would sit for hours on my bed, training my fingers to coordinate with each other to tackle wrist-breaking rockers like "Bark At The...

The Conclusion: Harmonix and Red Octane made such an amazing team that any company following in their footsteps had some mighty big expectations to meet. Sadly, Neversoft finds themselves unable to find that perfect balance with Guitar Hero III:...

It must be a little intimidating for a developer to take the reigns of an established franchise like Guitar Hero, the cultural phenomenon that it's become, and attempt to meet the expectations of its fans with a new installment. With the original...

Neversoft played it pretty safe with Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. It doesn't break new ground and it didn't need to. The existing formula has made the franchise a huge success. They did add a local co-op Career Mode, boss battles to the solo...

Really Nothing New, But Still Fun

Cost aside the main disadvantage is that the game is slowly falling into the same trap that DDR has firmly become stuck in, it changes very little from year to year and runs the risk of only the most devoted followers appreciating the differences. The...

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock R..

 

A solid addition to the series, but a few questionable design choices keep it from elite rocker status.

At the end of the day, both newcomers and most fans of the originals will find a good game that does carry the torch for Guitar Hero forward. No, it's not nearly as fantastical as the originals, but it's still not bad. If nothing else, the new guitar...

Don't be "Paranoid" - Neversoft didn't "Sabotage" GH3

Real artists on most songs ; Graphics that belong on Xbox 360 ; More multiplayer options

Sub-par covers annoy even more ; In-song strumming not as clever ; Going through lots o' batteries

Expert review by:

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock

 

The latest in the series rocks as hard as ever, only occasionally falling out of tune.

Great set list; tons of challenge for experts while relaxing accuracy for casual players

No online co-op campaign; boss battles feel unbalanced; PS3 Les Paul has some nagging issues
