Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock With Bonus Songs!

For those who like to Rock.. we salute you!

Whether you're playing guitar in a bar, in a night club, at your friend's house or in your own living room, there is one thing that millions of people worldwide can agree on:

Guitar Hero is AWESOME!!

This legacy of rock music appreciation and extreme guitar playing has it's price, at about $80, but provides endless hours of seriously wicked riffs and sweet rock graphics. With 77,000 videos of Guitar Hero featured on Youtube, it's not hard to see why folks love this game. The buzz about this game is incredible, and the producers and suits behind it say that they anticipate the game selling 285,000 copies in the first four days!! At around $100 bucks for the Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock Bundle, that means some serious cash for some seriously awesome game developers.

Guitar Hero is brought to us by Electronic Arts, or EA Games, a company which also brought us The Sims, Madden, NBA Live, NHL and many others. The release of Guitar Hero 3 has been made official, and the projected sales figures for the game prove that EA Inc. is doing something impressive and amazing: Keeping interest in music, especially the classics, high!

How to Play Guitar Hero 3

Gameplay for Guitar Hero 3 will remain the same as it was for Guitar Hero and Guitar Hero 2. For those of you out there who have never played Guitar Hero, Dance Dance Revolution, Pump it Up, or similar games, here's how it works.

Each song (level) starts the same, with a blank screen and an intro time. Game play begins as soon as you see the arrows come toward you on the screen. There is a control line where, when the arrows meet it, you press the corresponding colored button on the neck of the guitar controller. The more buttons you press correctly in sequence, the higher your score and the more you rock out.

What's new in Guitar Hero 3?

RedOctane and Harmonix, to name two big things. With all the attention and praise, not to mention profit resulting from Guitar Hero and Guitar Hero 2, it was only a matter of time before this game series was picked up and tweaked by some of the best game producers out there. This is not to say that Electronic Arts was doing poorly, far from it. With the addition of the MTV-owned Harmonix and the interactive hand-eye coordination testing gurus at RedOctane, Guitar Hero 3 proves to be everything we absolutely loved about Guitar Hero 2, and MORE.

The graphics for Guitar Hero 3 are hotter, there are more master tracks in the song list, big name bands spanning the ages of Rock, and brand new venues more suiting a career progression.

Hey hey fellow gamer!

After playing the game a good bit, I tend to lean more toward GH2 myself. I think that maybe, if the game series had begun with a full band and gone to focus on individual instruments, it may have been more of a hit. Who knows!

halo3forxbox from USA on September 04, 2008:

You know, I totally love these games (As well as Rock Band, yup I like this one too) and I was extremely excited before GH: 3 came out but I found it to be a complete let down.So far out of the Franchise I would have to say that GH: 2 is the best, buy far. I'm pretty excited to see how the new GH will be, adding drums and Mic's like Rock Band, many fan's are saying that if they wanted to play Drums they would purchase Rock Band, but who knows?Oh and GH: Aerosmith was a let down for me as well...

I wasn't too sure about buying GH3, but.. I can't resist after reading this hub. Thanks a lot!

spacebull from Space on November 02, 2007:

I just want as much Queen as possible in Guitar Hero :)

Jaclyn Popola from Florida on October 31, 2007:

I LOVE Guitar Hero. I played GH3 for the first time the other day, but it's much more difficult than the first two. Anyway, have you seen the maniac 8-year olds who can play Beethovan on Advanced?? It's sick, I wrote about it months ago. You should check out the videos at the bottom of the page:

Kiz Robinson (author) from New Orleans, Louisiana on October 31, 2007:

You sure can! Guitar Hero, Guitar Hero 2, and Guitar Hero 3 are for all ages!

Angela Harris from Around the USA on October 31, 2007:

Love the AC/DC reference. I have 2 college age kids and a teenager. Can I still play?

Whitney from Georgia on October 31, 2007:

My boyfriend just purchased Halo 3 today. He wouldn't stop talking about it last night. Before this one, his favorite is the first one. I haven't heard his opinion about this one.
