Summary: It is okay. My son likes it. However he really wanted the drums too. However that bundle was not available. Also, package arrived without the 3 faceplates which would have made it all the more exciting for my male teen.
Summary: We finally received our package after almost a month, put the guitar together, did everything we had to and then tried, tried and still tried to connect them wirelessly and NO suck luck?!?!?!?!?!
Summary: I bought this game because it's a classic and one of the best guitar hero series, but upon opening the case I find that they sent me another guitar hero game that I didn't like or want. This was very sad.
Summary: The setlist is good. The difficulty is fine. But the boss battles play like somebody said "Hey, this game is fun and all but isn't there something we could borrow from a tired old platformer to interrupt the flow and made people frustrated and cuss us?" Thus was born the GH3 boss battle. Huarf!
Online play is spotty, but otherwise a fun game that is great for parties.

Summary: The Good: - Legends of Rock has a nice selection of music. There is a good variety from classic rock to 90s alternative to current stuff. The total number of songs is pretty impressive too. - Single player career mode is fun, and the difficulty was just right on Easy. I tried on Medium though and got whooped. You'll start off as a nobody and slowly work your way up to superstar status. The progression is fun, although not very original.
Summary: Buyer beware on guitar hero products. Even though the product is supposed to have a 60 day warranty the company is not providing any warranty support. I purchased this product and the guitar doesn't work (no surprise as I see this on a lot of reviews). When I attempted to contact support at Activision they say they only support Guitar Hero World Tour warranty and direct you to RedOctane for support (310-255-2050).
Summary: Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock is a very innovative game like the other Guitar Hero's, which makes a sedentary hobby of video gaming a little more active and also can inspire an interest in learning to actually play a guitar. I waited awhile and finally gave in and have to say I was impressed. The guitar is top notch and the interaction with the onscreen action is seamless. There is a significant learning curve that can only be lessened by frequent play.
Summary: Being a guitar player, I dismissed the first two games, thinking that it was just silly. Then, I played GH3 at a friend's house and saw how much fun it was. So, I decided to scoop it up soon after getting my PS3. What I like: The graphics are stellar. Of course though, they should be. It's for the PS3, after all. They also seem to have captured the essence of guitar playing, without actually playing guitar.
Summary: I've found GHIII to be pretty addictive. Overall it's a great game with some pretty cool songs (and a few not so good ones - but still fun). A couple frustrating features that I've noticed: - The dongle and the controller do not connect easily. I follow the directions in the white insert of the manual and the connection is still hit or miss. On a couple occasions the controller connected at start-up and just as I was about to begin playing a song, I lost the connection.
