Summary: Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock will once again redefine music gaming with an all-new, story-driven Quest Mode, a completely redesigned rock-inspired guitar controller, the biggest on-disc selection of rock music ever in a Guitar Hero game and Quickplay+, which invites challenge-starved fanatics to test their rock skills.
Excerpt: Numerous tweaks and additions have been made to Guitar Hero during the long evolution of the franchise, but one thing has remained pretty constant – there's never been much to the game's story mode. If you've played any Guitar Hero game in the past then you know the routine; play a few songs to unlock the next tier of tracks so that you can repeat the process, with only a few comic book style panels in between to serve as a bare minimum of a pictorial narrative.
Conclusion: Greatest Hits does what it says on the tin and the song updates are welcome, but the logistics of charging full price for what is basically an extended track pack makes it difficult to recommend. If you are new to the series then it is a worthy introduction, but for everyone else this really should have been served on the DLC dish.
Excerpt: Guitar Hero truly lives up to its name in Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, the newest installment to an ever-growing franchise. Guitar Hero III comes bundled with a massive array of new rock songs, many of which are master tracks, along with a few interesting new features and design tweaks.
Excerpt: Will it rock your world? yeah a bit! So, just in case you have lived in a cave for the last 5 or 6 years, a quick recap of what Guitar Hero is all about! You have either a guitar controller, drum controller or a microphone and you must strum, drum or sing in time to the music. Simples. Taking on the game can be done solo or as part of a band. This review will concentrate on the single player guitar elements of the game – in my mind the core of the game.
Pros: 93 tracks, if you like rock you will like most of them. Gene Simmons!
Cons: Quest mode is a bit strange! Songs may not be for everyone.
