Guitar Hero 3 - Legends of Rock Review

If you liked the previous Guitar Hero games, then you should like this one. Because it is the exact same!
Gameplay: I'll just start with what Guitar Hero is about, for those of you who do not know. Basically you use a plastic guitar with a flicky thing (?) where you strum and 5 coloured buttons for the 'fret board'. You basically hold down the coloured buttons on the guitar to match the coloured 'gems' that are coming down the screen. When the 'gems' come down to the line at the bottom of the screen, you 'strum' the flicky thing and it plays the 'note'. You continue to do this for each series of gems until the end of the song. The gameplay for this has been the same over 4 games! I'm not kidding. The only thing that is different among the games is the playlist and the multiplayer which only changed on this game.
Difficulty: There are 4 difficulties. Easy, Medium, Hard and Expert. Easy is really slow and you only use the first 3 coloured buttons. Medium is a little faster and uses 4 buttons. Hard is faster and uses all 5 buttons. Expert is really fast and uses all 5 buttons. There's only one problem with this. The jump from Medium to Hard might be a bit much at first but you will get used to it. I don't know about Expert because I've only been able to do 2 songs on Expert.
Graphics: The graphics are alright, I guess. It just doesn't really matter since you're looking at the 'fret board' on the screen the entire time.
Sound: The playlist in this game is just awesome! In the previous games there was probably only one song I have heard before. In this one I've heard of most of the songs. The sound that comes out when you play are the actual recordings of the song so no remixs. Thank god!
Content: I'll just describe what is in the game. There are 42 songs and about 20 songs you buy in the in-game store. You start off with 8 characters (I think) and you unlock a further 4 including a robot. How awesome! There are a countless number of unlockable guitars including a Guitar Hero controller. There's a lot of content in this game but since this is the PS2 version there's no online store for more songs.
Final Note: Buy this game if you don't own the originals. If you do, try renting.
