Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock

 

The chaos-filled fun of Battle Power carries over to the game's multiplayer and debut online mode, where you face off against a human opponent or a networked one. The rest of the online interface is pretty simple with co-op, battle, face-off and pro...

Red Octane's original 'performance sim' returns for a third outing, but is it missing something in the Harmonix...

Great selection of tracks ; Solid online multiplayer ; Battle mode adds a new dimension to gameplay

DLC packs remain an issue ; Still not enough Master tracks ; Occasional slowdown in co-op

Easily leapfrogging the performance of Guitar Hero II with room to spare, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock thrashes out a strong mix of classic and modern tracks, and is further enhanced with the online features its predecessor should have had. Now...

Harmonix may have moved on to Rock Band, but the Guitar Hero franchise still goes strong. The third Guitar Hero features online play, a great song list, and the best fake guitar money can buy. But did Tony Hawk developer Neversoft shred this one up too...

Rocking song list, wider difficulty scale, just as addicting as in the past

Framerate chugs in exceptionally flashy moments, lacks polish, where are the legends

Stupid oversights such as the framerate hitches, no online co-op career, the luck-based guitar battles and a bucket-full of smaller annoyances (such as my expert high scores for downloaded songs randomly disappearing and an overactive auto-save) keep...

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock Review for the PS3

 

Still Riffin'

More Guitar Hero; Better tracklist, fewer covers; General all-around improvements

General all-around faults; Unbalanced, luck-based boss battles; Too many pop-up widgets

The failings of Battle mode aside, though, the online feature is painless. You’ll occasionally experience the familiar trash talk on Xbox Live and it might take several attempts to establish a connection, but once you find a competitor that doesn’t...

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

I have to say that it was hard to write this review. Not because the game caused any difficulty as to what I wanted to say, but the fact that my fingers hurt. Let me give you a breakdown of how my day went. Woke up at 8:30 am, drove to Monroville Mall,...

If you're waiting for Rock Band to show up on store shelves and not buying this game, then you are a fool. The gameplay hasn't changed in Guitar Hero III, but I say "why try to fix what isn't broken?" The boss battles are a nice addition to the game...

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock PlayStation 3 Review

 

Up until E3 a few years ago, I'd never heard of Guitar Hero. Yet, only a short time later, it's a household name and a staple among gamers' top lists. With Harmonix off producing Rock Band and taking the code behind Guitar Hero with it, one wasn't...

Excellent guitar this time around; decent soundtrack including a excellent set of bonus tracks; online multiplayer; battle mode is a blast

Require offline co-operative career mode to unlock all tracks; on the PS3 the guitar cannot turn on the system; style is a little forced; far too much in game advertising

If anyone out there is still unfamiliar with the concept, you are provided with a guitar shaped controller and a virtual fretboard on screen consisting of five "strings". Coloured notes move towards you, and the purpose of the game is to hold down the...

Every Guitar Hero needs an Axe worthy of his or her skill... Guitar Hero III is a rhythm game from publisher RedOctane. The purpose of the game is to be the best guitar player in the world, to propel your band from obscurity to the realm of rock and...

Guitar wireless controller is a great addition ; Set list great ; Excellent replay value ; Co-op and online play

Visuals not next-gen ; Product placement takes away from the game ; Not enough unlockable characters

If this isn’t your first time experience with Guitar Hero, you already know the basics. And for those who don’t have any idea what I’m talking about, here's the rundown! You can buy the game alone, or with a guitar shaped controller. There are 5...

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock- PS3

 

it gets boring, i'd suggest getting Rockband Instead. its a lot more challenging than the first 2 guitar heros and its got good songs, and less covers so its a pretty good game. if you've played the first 2 games but not this one, it is actually much...
