Conclusion: The look and feel of GH3 is a mixed bag. The gameplay segments are sharper than ever, with the character models improved, but also doing a better job of looking like they’re involved in the particular song you’re playing (right down to the singer’s lip synching). However, the cutscenes between those segments are made to be more cartoony, with all dialogue replaced by gibberish or something akin to what The Sims speak.
Conclusion: Make sure you like the track listing though otherwise you could have a hardtime enjoying it. If you have a freind who is also good at guitar hero the CO-OP career can be very fun and get you alot of the points :) However i would recomend buying either RB2 or GH:WT now if you have the money because i think they are just plain better.
Excerpt: With the Guitar Hero vs Rockband debate raging one forgets that not everyone is acquainted with the original plastic guitar rhythm-game phenomenon…but then you have to ask yourself, “Am I really a gamer?
Excerpt: Are you ready to rock?! I hope so, because we’re not doing anything else here, and if you’re not ready to rock nearly exactly the same way that you’ve rocked before, only with mildly recognizable context and the introduction of some obnoxious features, then you’re going to be a little disappointed in Guitar Hero Threeeeeeee! Yeah!
Summary: With its strong track list, fun celebrity cameos, exciting multiplayer modes and interesting story, Guitar Hero III is a must buy for anybody who loves to jam at a fake plastic guitar. You won't find a whole lot that is new this time around, but Neversoft has done an excellent job of ironing out some of the kinks and making this the best Guitar Hero game yet. Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review.
Summary: Guitar Hero III played it safe this year, and it doesn’t steer to far away from the original formula, which isn’t a bad thing especially coupled with the best track list the series has seen yet. While a lot of the new improvements there are great and you can feel that they will be expanded on, it still might leave some to be desired by veterans that are looking for more than just more challenge.
Conclusion: All-in-all, Guitar Hero III is a bit of an awkward one. For the most part, it’s as addictively entertaining as its forebears and, obviously, online multiplayer offers a major boost in terms of longetivity. However, some questionable design decisions and uneven song roster slightly sully an otherwise strong third entry.
