The latest in the popular GH series of rock-god rhythm games has finally arrived, but will the latest GH bring anything new to the table?
First Impressions: Whenever possible, we try to give our loyal website viewers the most video footage and most in depth unbiased reviews imaginable. Part of that development is our "initial impressions" where we offer up our first impressions of the title that we are playing.This gives our website visitors more of clear understanding of what to first expect out of the game when they initially pop it into their consoles. If you scroll to the bottom of the page in the Rent vs. Buy section of the review and do not see the "final impressions" assessment then it's safe to say that you are reading our initial impression of the game. Once the final impression is up, there will be no further video or review done to that particular title.
Final Impressions: The final impression is just that, our completed breakdown and overall thoughts on the game based off of our entire game playing time.You can locate the final impressions assessment in the "Rent vs. Buy" section of the review (always located at the very end of all of our reviews). Here you will be able to read our final thoughts on the title and also see any potential grade changes that were made to the game as well (higher or lower). Should a grading change occur, it will be clearly noted with the previous grade, the new grade, and why the change occurred. Although this approach is more time consuming and requires many more man hours, our entire goal has always been to provide the best and completely unbiased reviews possible and we feel that the inclusion of the Initial Impressions and Final Impressions sections will give you a better view of what to expect from a new game. All that we ask in return is for you to continue to support Krakrabbit.com by visiting the site and letting others know about our cause. Together we can supply our fellow gamers with the most impartial information so they can make an informed decision on whether to buy or rent this particular title.
I Wanna Rock: The first thing you will notice about Guitar Hero III is how oddly familiar the entire game feels. That's the first and only flaw in GH III; it's the same game as last time around.You will once again play as a rock star, jamming around arenas in a variety of different locales ranging from huge stages to high school gymnasiums. The core gameplay of GH III hasn't change in any degree, and that is both a flaw and a strong point. If you have the Guitar Hero guitar-controller, the game is a blast to play alone or with a fellow Guitar Hero. As you progress through the game, you will face increasing difficulty as the notes begin to flash by the screen, but you'll never feel overwhelmed.
Strumming The Notes: Guitar Hero III doesn't have much depth, and there isn't anything to do besides hit notes all night long, going from song to song. The GH formula is nearly timeless, but with so many "sequels" that turn out to be carbon copies you will long for some more depth.
Rent vs. Buy: Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock is another fantastic addition to the GH series, but there isn't much here to distinguish it from the last installment in the franchise.The game is merely another moneymaker, milked from the cash cow of the GH name, and isn't worth the chalk in any way. The total absence of depth takes away a lot of the games potential. Had there been something new to add to the nearly flawless formula, this might've been a worthwhile game.
