Customer Review

For anyone who has been playing the GH series since it came out around late 2005 it's hard to look back at what music based games used to be like.

For anyone who has NOT been playing the GH series...WTF ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!

The third installment of the Guitar Hero series is here! Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. I bought this game opening day around 11:30am-ish and since have played a solid 8 hours straight. Frankly...my hands hurt. *whimpers*

GH3 is absolutely AMAZING! I've been playing GH from the get-go and it seems that Red Octane is going to continue to up the ante with every installment. The gameplay is polished to a mirror sheen in this version with the controls being extremely smooth and totally free of any errors or problems. (Anyone who remembers the original Guitar Hero remembers how bad the flawed hammer-on and pull-off system was.) Just to repeat: Shiny and very good system. Vastly improved from all previous versons of GH. Graphics for Legends of Rock is also very big. They new graphics (especially for the 360 and PS3 versions) are absolutely gorgeous. Half the time I find myself paying more attention to the female character's *ahem* charms, which are perfectly rendered in 3D, more than the notes I'm playing. Call me what you will but seriously the shadow effects as well as the new texture maps make the graphics almost surrealy-realistic. Thumbs up to Red Octane!

Finally...the song list...What else can be said other than..."Holy mother of all things held sacred...." If I had to sum up this track-list in one word it'd be "EPIC". These songs will be recognized by anyone into any genre of rock. Everything from Classic rock, to modern alternative, classic metal, heavy metal, euro-rock, it's all there. For a more detailed song-list there are hundreds of websites that'll give it to you if you just google "GH3 song list".

I've only found two problems with this game:
1.) Two of the promised tracks were shorted from the game. "Thunderstruck" AC/DC and "Stairway to Heaven" Led Zepplin.
2.) The learning curve of this game pretty bad. I could play Hard mode sections 1-7 quite well but as soon as I hit section 8 I was overwhelmed. The songs went from playable to downright insane in a split second.
