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.

Includes Les Paul Guitar Hero Controller

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.

        • Beastie Boys - Sabotage

         Continuation of a cult game

        | | See all SlamDuncan's reviews (1)

        As a staunch Guitar Hero 2 fan, trying to remain calm whilst the American public get their grubby mitts on this game a month before us europeans is slightly frustrating.
        However, having played the demo and read up on the game's ins and outs, i can see that this will be as good as the first and second editions.

        For anyone who played GH2 on the 360, i can confirm this game is slighlty more forgiving, especially when it comes to nailing those solos. Hammer-ons and pull-offs are much more fluent, but to perfect those levels, takes a special sort of player.

        The graphics are nice, but the main fretboard that you see the notes on, are far more detailed than the last instalment.

        Add to that the online modes, downloadable content and boss battles with original solos written by Slash and Tom Morello for the game, we're in for another great game this winter.

         So much fun, it should be illeagel

        When I first saw Guitar Hero I sort of sneered at the box and turned away, dismissing it as another dull gimmick to try and clutter up teenagers' bedrooms. When Guitar Hero II came out, I rolled my eyes at the prospect of a sequel. With Guitar Hero III I gave in to peer pressure, and picked up my copy for the 360.
        And my first thought was "What have I been missing out on?!?!"
        First of all, getting into it. Obviously this was my first forray into GH, and the controller felt alien in my hands. The tutorials though are easy and forgiving, and soon have you ready to tackle some actual songs. And once you do you realise just how addictive this is.
        The songs start of slow, with few notes, but as you progress through your venues the number of notes per song increases, and they're thrown at you more rapidly. But the learning curve on this game is little short of perfect, and the difficulty of the songs truly rises to match your developing skill, making for a challenging - but not frustrating - journey through career mode. On more than one occasion you'll find yourself about to power down before stopping yourself and muttering "Go on then, just one more song" and then find yourself repeating the statement 4 minutes later.
        The replay value on this game is potentially infinite, with a store full of bonuses to buy (from videos, to extra songs, to more guitars and characters), and multiple-completions of the game required to buy them all. But you'll want to go back and replay, as once you've finished on your chosen difficulty level you'll realise you now have the skill to tackle the next difficulty level from scratch, another example of the great learning curve. The Achievements are challenging to get hold of, and will again have you going back time and time again also, sometimes repeating one song until you know every note by heart, but still encouraging you to go back to it.
        The co-op mode is good, but it's a pity you're unable to play co-op over Xbox Live, which unfortunately means you have to squeeze a friend and their guitar into the same room as yourself. Whilst this is a slight downside, it's not enough of one to warrant losing a star.
        The competetive two-player on the other hand is again superb. While the host always gets to choose the song, each player gets to choose their own difficulty setting, so you can still play to match your skill level.

        And of course the track list. What would a GH review be without mentioning the songs? In a nutshell - great. There's an even mix in there to ensure there's something for everyone. There's soft rock, punk rock, classic rock, metal... it means that no-one will love every track in the game, but it means there'll be very few people who won't have a favourite song on there which they'll want to go back to again, and again, and again...

        Overall, a fantastic game. Easy to get into for a quick 10-minute play while the kids are in bed, or just as much fun to embark upon an epic 5-hour weekend marathon. It's wonderfully addictive, so just try to remember - even rock legends need to take a minute to eat and drink between gigs.

         Must Buy

        Loved GH2 and still play it now. I imported GH3 because I couldn't wait for the 23rd (It was released on the 28/10 in the states).

        The game is different, but still fantastic. I'd say on balance it's easier and that seems to be a fairly consistent statement from people that have played both games. Don't let that put you off though. GH3 is a fantastic game - the online play (although presently a little glitchy) is worth it alone.

        If you've never played a GH game and are worried about spending out a lot of money for one game, don't be. You'll be playing this for months to come. Also, don't be suprised if your non gaming friends go out and buy a 360 just to play this themselves. It's happened a few times at my house!

        Finally, don't like the music? You'll be suprised how much this game will open your ears up to music you never thought you'd listen to. Also, you play them so often, you really get to like them!

         yes yes yes

        Everything about GH3 is just brilliant. It has a great list of classic rock and newer tracks, very addictive to play. Even if you dont like rock music you can still have a lot of fun with this game. The career mode is great fun as you can buy new guitars, songs and outfits for your character. When you get to Expert level it becomes extremely tough but there is a well balanced range of difficulties so beginners can pick it up in no time. One of the best on the 360.
