Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock continues to build on Guitar Hero's successful easy to play, but difficult to master gameplay mechanic to take the franchise to a whole new level. With master tracks from legendary bands like Sex Pistols, Guns N' Roses, Rolling Stones, Metallica, and Pearl Jam, along with original music composed specifically for the game by iconic guitarists Slash and Tom Morello, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock sports the greatest soundtrack to ever find its way into a videogame. Vastly improved graphics immerse gamers into their rock arenas and heighten their visual experience while the new wireless Gibson guitar controllers allow the players to channel their inner guitar gods. The arcade-inspired Battle Mode, expanded Co-Op Career and Boss Battles add depth and extend gameplay for countless hours of shred time.

Featuring over 70% master recordings, spanning over 40 years of music across many rock genres, Guitar Hero fans have the opportunity to shred to one of the greatest compilations of music ever. Adding to the track list are some of the most legendary European anthems with a vast array of downloadable content post-launch. From Metallica to Muse and Rolling Stones to Rage Against the Machine, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock offers up a truly legendary set list.

Multiple tracks that can only be found in the game include guitar icons Slash and Tom Morello contributing original guitar riffs for their boss battles. Also, the Sex Pistols re-entered the studio for the first time in 30 years to re-record "Anarchy in the U.K." providing Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock an original recording not available anywhere else. Additionally, Living Colour re-recorded their Grammy Award winning "Cult of Personality" adding a solo that left legendary guitarist Vernon Reid grunting.

Rock This Way: The arcade-inspired battle mode adds a new dimension to the Guitar Hero franchise. The idea isn't necessarily to hit the most notes, but rather hit the right ones and learn the nuances of using the power-up attacks.

An Authentic Look and Feel: Improving the graphics from the ground up have created a more intense visual element giving guitar heroes the sense of performing on their own rock stage.

    You've Got to Beat the Best, To Be the Best: Battle mode lends itself to the boss battles featuring Slash and Tom Morello. After defeating a boss, unlock them as a playable character and continue to the encore for the set list, which is a master recording of one of their most legendary songs.

      OK the game is good and some of the music is fantstic but its called legends of rock... I see Guns and Roses, Pearl Jam, Mountain, Foghat, The Who, Eric Johnson who are legends but c'mon Kaiser Chiefs, Bloc Party and AFI they are not legends where is the stuff like AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and Van Halen its stupid.

       Mostly More Of The Same .. Will That Wash A Third Time?

      | | See all Erasmus's reviews (15)

      The answer in this case is yes ... mostly. The Guitar Hero franchise has always been about the music and the difficulty curve ... it's fair to say the third installment finds a reasonable groove in these regards.

      Considering the torch has been passed to Neversoft (as Harmonix are on with the imminent Rock Band), it's refreshing to see that the developer has mostly stuck to the groundwork laid by the previous two incarnations. The mechanics are the same, holding frets and strumming notes, hammer-ons and pull-offs and so forth. The one note of interest here is the error margin for hitting notes has been relaxed a great deal, so it's easier to pull off a lot of the advanced techniques ...

      ... which is handy, because there's a hell of a lot more to play. Seasoned GH veterans should have no difficulty with Easy or Normal, but Hard and Expert are much more of a challenge (if you thought Free Bird was tough, try a dose of Metallica's "One" or Dragonforce's "Through The Fire And The Flames"). Be warned that a lot of hard work is needed to get through these difficulties, practice is the key here. Additionally, the tracklist was well chosen and seems to suit the difficulty curve well between the earlier and later levels.

      One welcome addition is the more fleshed out Co-op mode. The bass / rhythm parts seem to be more considered and much more technical on later levels, and the addition of a co-op career mode is great, though it would have been better having both online and local play here. The online co-op is limited to quick-play or competitive face-off & battle, but at least it's there, and it's great fun whichever mode you choose.

      The other new addition to GHIII is the Battle mode, which requires hitting certain combinations of notes to unlock 'attacks' (such as broken strings, amp overloads) which you can throw at your opponent using the guitar tilt. It's a valiant effort in revising the formula, but in practice it's actually a waste of time, and not particularly engaging.

      Despite the few criticisms, this is a solid third in the series, and credit has to be given to Neversoft for not dropping the torch. If you already have GHII, you may find more value in the Solus pack, but the improved wireless Les Paul in the full pack should be considered, especially if you're serious about the co-op mode (where you will need the second guitar).
