  • Excerpt: Harmonix may have moved on to Rock Band, but the Guitar Hero franchise still goes strong. The third Guitar Hero features online play, a great song list, and the best fake guitar money can buy. But did Tony Hawk developer Neversoft shred this one up too much? Do a few glaring issues keep this hero from saving the day?
  • Pros: ups: Rocking song list, wider difficulty scale, just as addicting as in the past
  • Cons: downs: Framerate chugs in exceptionally flashy moments, lacks polish, where are the legends?

  • Excerpt: The first time I ever played a guitar-based rhythm game was Konami's Guitar Freaks game - it was part of their Bemani series, which included Dance Dance Revolution. Guitar Freaks is the reason why we have Guitar Hero today, and people need not forget that much - it is the pioneer of this sub-genre. Guitar Hero has now seen a number of entries into its series, and the games are so popular that for nearly 10 months straight, Guitar Hero II was a top 10 seller.

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock

Saving Progress

  • Conclusion: I feel guilty buying a new game for full price when the only thing that really matters can be dealt with through DLC, or retail on a disc for a much more reasonable price. GH1 brought the innovation, GH2 brought it into the spotlight, and GH3 has more or less made it mainstream, with in-game advertisements and all. The only reason to buy this game is for the songs and the fact that it’s so ridiculously fun to play them. Nothing else matters.

  • Conclusion: Teniendo en cuenta la dificultad en el modo difícil y experto, si eres nuevo, mejor cómprate los dos primeros y, si te quedas con ganas de más, consíguete éste, pero no empieces por éste si eres nuevo o acabarás rompiendo la guitarra contra la tele.
  • Pros: Más Guitar Hero., La mayor dificultad supone un reto para los veteranos.
  • Cons: Temas feos y repetitivos., Poca innovación., La dificultad excesiva de las últimas canciones.

  • Conclusion: Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock kan höja stämningen på vilket party som helst, men det är även roligt att spela själv. Spelet bygger vidare på samma grund som de båda tidigare spelen. Nyheterna är inte så stora som förväntat, och jag funderar lite över om det inte hade varit klokt av Activision att låta Harmonix fortsätta utveckla Guitar Hero-serien istället för att överlåta licensen till Neversoft. Hur hade spelet då sett ut?
