Guitar Hero 3

Family Friendly Gaming
11 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Guitar Hero III is the latest installment of the popular guitar rhythm game and the first of the series to find its way onto the Wii. I have played previous versions of this game and have enjoyed them immensely so I was very excited to play the latest iteration. Unfortunately, this version, which had a different developer than the last two games, took all the good things about the series and added a number of things that have really curbed my enthusiasm for this game.

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock Review

VideoGamer.com
2 October 2008
  • 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?

Edgier sequel still rocks the third time out.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this very engaging musical rhythm game is best played on a guitar-shaped controller. The game includes sexual innuendo and alcohol references in the lyrics. One of the game's venues is a bar, and several of the characters are in sexy bar garb. More so than in the previous versions of Guitar Hero , name brands are everywhere, including branding the guitar controller as a Gibson guitar; most of the commercialism is confined to music-related...

Where Guitar Chops and Hair Twirls Abound

  • Conclusion: Battle mode, a co-op multiplayer campaign, online competition, and eventual downloadable content is going to stretch the game a lot further for a lot of players. The main game, however, is already amazing in and of itself. You'll easily spend months playing through the different difficulty setting to unlock new tracks, guitars, playable characters, and other excellent features.

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock

Game Boyz
15 March 2008
  • Excerpt: I have to admit right off the hop that I am a true Guitar Hero rookie. The series started on the PS2 and made the jump to the 360 not long after even and though it was on both of these systems I really never got a chance to play it. Since that time original developers Harmonix have gone on to a new publisher and are developing Rock Band.

Guitar Hero III (Wii)

Crispy Gamer
30 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.
