Review Summary

It also features the largest number of original recordings in the series; including Metallica’s legendary hit “One.” Colored circles represent the notes of various guitar aiming to get the better scroll and your job is to hold down combinations of the five matching colored buttons on your little plastic guitar in response to the onscreen cues, then flick the switch to play the notes at the right times. The upgraded graphics and the successful online playability make Legends of Rock more interesting. The Battle Mode rocks players against one another to see who is the fastest. The characters appear realistic and smooth. The bands are more animated, and most look like they really are a part of a musical number instead of just gamely activity. The fan favorite guitarists including, Judy Nails, Jonny Napalm, and a few others, play the chords in tune with the song. With the updated graphics and smoother gameplay modes, Guitar Hero III is worth a try. The song selection is perfect. The battle tracks with Slash and Tom Morello are really entertaining. You can become a Legend Face off against guitar icon Slash and others in insane boss battles or Rock out defeat opponents to achieve legendary status in head-to-head competition with the all new guitar battle. With an addition of several original master tracks Guitar Hero III is sure to please any music fan.
