Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock Review

PlayStation Universe
8 April 2009
  • Summary: Guitar Hero III is rockers wet dream; from everything to the stellar soundtrack to the addictive gameplay, Legends of Rock is a thrilling amalgam of everything you’ve come to expect from the series up to this point, along with some welcoming new additions. Make no mistake – this is a set list worthy of a double encore.
  • Pros: Great soundtrack, New online setup promises a lot of support, The same familiar, addictive gameplay you have come to expect
  • Cons: Guitar should have been Bluetooth, Framerate drops occasionally, Online mode currently was all but broken

Third Time's Not So Charming

  • Conclusion: Solid, but not nearly as jaw-droppingly awesome as the previous entries, Neversoft made the most of their time with the game, but sadly I think it needed just a bit more time.

Expert Review

Inside Hotwire 3D

  • Conclusion: You’ll notice that the game keeps tab of your different milestones through visual counters and streaking text messages. The overall presentation is quite remarkable but it’s hard to ignore the glitter of forced ads like from Axe Body Spray. Needless to say, that is something you can easily over look. What’s important is that the Guitar Hero III plays to its strength of bringing you the best guitar experience ever.

  • Conclusion: It’s hard to imagine where Guitar Hero III is headed next with Rock Band aiming to dethrone the champion. Aside from downloadable expansion songs, there’s only so far you can push a rhythm based game without straying outside the box. No matter which route RedOctane takes in 2008 with Guitar Hero IV, for now, Guitar Hero III proves the basic rhythm formula still has a lot of life – and sales – left in it.
  • Pros: The basic formula is still fun, Wireless guitar rules, Boss battles a nice variation, Online and coop play, Lots of original songs
  • Cons: Bad pause button placement, Is the series growing stale?

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock Review

  • Excerpt: You know, I keep wondering, what would I have done if I was in Neversoft's shoes? You've just been handed the reigns of one of the best selling multi-platform franchises of the last few years, and you know that in order to succeed, the game needs a spark of new life, a new hook. Perhaps go nuts with the number of songs, or I dunno, maybe introduce a couple new instruments?

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock (PS3)

Crispy Gamer
29 January 2008
  • Excerpt: You'd have to try really hard to mess up Guitar Hero III . The developers at Neversoft, taking over the series from creator Harmonix, do no such thing. Instead, they do a (mostly) good job of introducing subtle improvements, adding a few new features, and working with an exciting song list, often with the participation of the original artists. But they also miss the point just a teensy bit.

  • Excerpt: Do you like rock music... Do you like video games... Do you like rock music and video games... Chances are if you say yes to at least one of those questions, you're familiar with Guitar Hero, publisher Activision's genius marriage of axe-shaped controller and rock and roll music. If the likes of SingStar is a little too twee for you (or you're just tone deaf when it comes to singing) strap on thine axe and start shredding.
