Pros: The wireless guitar worked better than I thought it would. I haven't had any issues with the guitar not recognizing that it is raised.
Cons: GH3 is considerably harder than GH2. I have played GH2 at a friends house and bought this one for the guitar and so the girlfriend could try it out. Because it's that much harder, it's got a greater learning curve for beginners.
Summary: I do have one final issue. I did weeks of research on this game, I saw so many posts by guitarists saying "It's a game, not a real guitar!!! If you want to play real guitar, buy one and take lessons." I just want to say back, I know it is a game. That's why I bought it, to play a game and have fun.
Pros: I was wary in buying this game for my kid because of so many reports of guitar and / or wireless problems. Eventually, I decided it would be worth the try, and oh was it!! The the wireless Kramer had no wireless connectivity problems, nor did the guitar have any button / neck issues. Given that I...
Cons: None really, I agree with some posts out there that the graphics are not as great as previous versions, but they are fine. Certainly counterbalanced by having so many songs played by the original artists. I listen to guitar hero, I don't watch it.
Summary: my girlfriend got me this game for christmas from a store that sounds like "Lame Flop." What a mistake that was. They have a rediculous policy where you only get a week from the day of purchase to return defective merchandise. They wanted me to contact the manufacturer on line.
Pros: This is a really fun game, and If you like to bang your head like I do, then you will enjoy rocking out to songs like Number of the Beast and Reign in Blood.
Cons: I got it for Christmas, and the wireless didn't work.
Summary: If you liked I or II or whatever that 80's filler they came out with, or if you're looking for more of a challenge, pick it up ("Through the Fire and Flames" is ridiculous! I play on expert, and I almost failed this on MEDIUM!!)
Pros: It really does bridge a gap here. I've played this with my nieces and nephews, my wife, brothers and sisters, in-laws, friends, their parents, etc. Everyone loves rock, esp. when they can find that ONE song from their glory days (songs from the 70's to 2007, even). Definitely much more of a chall...
Cons: No downloadable content, but 'tis to be expected (you gotta buy next-gen for that). Hideous singer animation. ;)
Summary: This is the ideal game for parents and kids to play together.
Pros: Bought this for my kids, but play almost as much as they do. Kids are amazed that dad knows the songs. Playing is fun for parents because the guitar controller is easier to learn to use vs. the hand game controller for other games.
Cons: Will quickly kill an evening as the "one more song" mindset kicks in.
Summary: This pack is great if you love guitar hero. It contains all the classic rock songs and is a really good game. The different levels keep it interesting for different age groups and I would recommend.
