    vmarathe's Guitar Hero 3 (360)

    [January 15, 2008 02:20:24 AM]

    I played Guitar Hero III again, this time with a group of people, which I realized, was even more fun. You can play for hours and hours without it being boring.

    There was a time where we played the same song over and over again, and everyone was fine with listening to it again. It seems that the game has an incredible lasting value, especially in a party situation.

    Not only is it fun to play, but also very fun to watch. One of my friends was trying to beat a certain song on the hardest difficulty, and everyone would cheer him on and get into the game. Finally once he had beaten the last stage it seemed like he really had accomplished something.

    I have concluded that the game is challenging and entertaining and can be played over and over again.


    The reason that this game has become so popular and so effective has a lot to do with its ability to simulate playing a real guitar.

    The five buttons representing the frets, and the flicker for strumming, and the guitar shaped controller in itself make the player feel like he/she is really playing the songs.

    Also, the way the songs are played based on which buttons to press match more or less what it would be on a real guitar. Things such as chords, and whether notes get higher or lower are represented somewhat accurately.

    The levels they have put in the game also make it fun to basically anyone trying to play. Easy, being extremely easy, is good for beginners while the last difficulty, expert, requires a great deal of dedication to the game, but once reached you feel a level of accomplishment.

    Another great thing about the design is the songs chosen by the creators. The game basically has changed my taste in music from just alternative rock to all different kinds of rock. Already I know many people have downloaded the entire soundtrack for the game.

    The design of the game is very simple, yet has become such a hit. It shows that you don't need superior graphics; only a great idea to turn into such a great game.

    Guitar Hero III, as said in the name, is the third installment of the classic game Guitar Hero. The basic premise of the game is to use the guitar shaped controller and the given set of songs. The guitar has five differently colored buttons, each representing a fret on a real guitar, and a white flicker to represent the strumming. The basic goal of the game is to complete all of the songs in the given list.


    I have been playing this game for a long time, and even though it is a very simple concept, it is as addicting as hell.

    The game has an ability to engross anyone who is playing and make them think that they really are the ones playing the song. In reality of course, this game improves your ability to play guitar just as much as DDR changed anyone's ability to dance. Its still fun to be in a fantasy world for the five minutes the song is playing and pretend to play guitar.

    To increase the addiction, this particular installment of the game has an excellent set of songs. They have a nice variety in the rock genre, so basically anyone would like at least a few of them.

    The new features in Guitar Hero III include an extra multi player setting called Battle Mode. This mode was entertaining for a while, but got old really fast because it didn't allow the player to listen to the entire song most of the time. I think the classic multi player modes such as co-op with a bass guitar, and the pro face-off are more fun.

    All in all, Guitar Hero III is a very fun game, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to pretend to be a rocker and play some of their favorite songs.
