The greatest rock songs of all time just teamed up with the greatest rock guitarists of all time and the crew that made Tony Hawk's legendary skating video games to make Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock! It puts you in the role of a guitar-wielding rock star on the way to becoming a rock god. Can you hack the greatest songs of all time? More importantly, is it a blast? Find out with our Guitar Hero III game review!

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock - Get Your Rock On!

This is a beat-matching game you play with a guitar-shaped controller, hittin' chords to play along with your fave rock songs. If you match the notes, you're on your way to becoming a rock god. Miss too many notes and you'll be playing in a garage forever! The main game challenges your skills and pits you against a rock boss every few levels. You can also invite a friend over for some two-player co-op, or rock duels with freaky power-ups to let you mess with the competition.

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock - Rock All Night!

This game is packed with the greatest rock 'n' roll songs of all time! Everything from classic Rolling Stones to modern bands are here and they sound terrific, especially when you're pounding out the rock chords to bring a song to life. The online modes are a blast too - letting you go head-to-head against other players online. To top it all off, the new guitar controllers are wireless so you can rock out with dance moves, high-flying jumps and power slides as you play!

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock - Rock is Dead

If you put this game on anything but easy mode you'll fry your brain and get your fingers twisted in a knot. It's just that hard. The Battle mode is weak too - one or two power-ups pretty much ends the showdown, and that's no fun especially when you can pull the same stunt on the bosses for an easy win.

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock - Rock or Suck?

With absolutely fantastic music, rock solid wireless guitar controllers, and some great multiplayer modes there's a lot of rock in this game. Just get used to getting your fingers twisted. Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock is awesome with a side order of way too hard!
