The game plays basically the same as its predecessor, and on top of that it's got a better set list. After reaching 5-star level on nearly all the songs at Expert difficulty in Guitar Hero 2, I found that the list of songs that I actually just enjoyed playing was very short. That's not so much the case with Guitar Hero 3, which has a larger collection of songs that are both fun to play and to listen to.
There are flaws, though. It seems to me that the new developers decided that they needed to tweak the Hammer On/Pull Off controls a little, and the result of this tweaking was that there were many times throughout the game where I instinctively didn't strum because two notes were close together, but one of the notes inexplicably required you to strum. Although this increases the difficulty, it feels awkward and forced (you could, after all, just do away with HOPOs altogether rather than making them unworkable at seemingly random times).
I'm not a big fan of the boss battles, either. The battle mode seems a good idea for balancing multiplayer Guitar Hero, because Guitar Hero 2 suffered significantly from the fact that an Expert player could hardly help beating anyone playing on Medium in the Face-off mode, at least not without putting down the guitar, which isn't exactly fun. However, the battle mode really has no place in the single-player career mode, where all I'm looking to do is play some songs.
It doesn't help that the boss battles are not very well executed.Read more ›
You work you're way up from a garage band, earning money along the way that you can spend in the games store for goodies like new outfits, real songs from around the world, and extra characters.Your current playlist is good with songs everybody knows even if their a poptart. You may even get asked to do an encore! My one gripe is their aren't that many chick songs, at least not on the levels I've played.
If you can find a second guitar remote you can rock head to head, which I plan to do with the spouse. I'll need to find a pink faceplate though. The makers said they'd have alternate fronts, so here's hoping. The guitar/remote is about the size of a eukalalie but still manages to make you feel very boss and you'll suddenly find yourself moving with attitude to the rhythm.
Stop reading and go play one!!!
First, let me point out the obvious. This is the first and only Guitar Hero game for any Nintendo system. Currently only Rock Band Special Edition has been released for Wii, there are no plans for any of the three other Guitar Hero games will come to Wii. In other words this is the only game in town for GH on the Wii and sadly the game plays songs only in Mono. This means if you have a fancy surround system, the music would only come out of the center speaker. You can rig it up so that the same mono sound comes out of other speakers, but that is not even an approximation of Dolby Pro Logic II. This is a negative, but shouldn't really prevent anyone from picking this game up.
The game itself is still as good as Guitar Hero 2 Bundle with Guitar or Guitar Hero (Game Only). In fact I would say that generally on the same difficulty level this game is a bit harder that the others. The set list, like the others, is a combination of classic and modern music. This is an online game, so you can play against people online and they claim that at some point additional songs will be available to purchase (not likely).
The new feature for this one is the battle mode. In these special boards you will face off with Slash, Tom Morello, etc... and instead of star power you get attacks to use against your opponent.Read more ›
I love the Wii version because of the cool, new, wireless guitar controller. It's so shiny and pristine white and works well with no glitches in play no matter what direction I am pointing. I love the online function.
What I don't like is that it's tough (right now at least) to find a good online partner (or stranger) to play. I am the only person I know who has the Wii version. Wii guitar controllers only come in the GH III bundle, and reports are that these solo controllers won't be available until early 2008. (Are you kidding me???)
So I have to play co-op and battle mode with my PS2... which is fine, but that means I have to complete the levels twice on two different systems. I'm a GH nut, so I don't mind doing that...
All in all, I love the Wii version. It's just so fresh and new with the new controller and the online play. But it's still untapped fun (until we can buy a second controller and can download other songs online).

This item was exactly as it was described. Very Lightly used and it included the strap, a brand new game, and the back cover for the Wii remote. It worked great in my Wii console.Published 5 months ago by Cynthia zavalza
