While it may not be a true revolutionary step forward, it does take its strides towards what I one day hope the Guitar Hero series will achieve. With a difficulty system that will progressively prepare you for the next levels, and a track list of over 70 songs with more to come, Guitar Hero could be the franchise that is returning rock to the spotlight it seems to have been slightly vacant from for a few years. I could not be happier to see these Legends of Rock finally getting the recognition they deserve in all forms of entertainment.

GH veterans will notice a dip in difficulty here, for better or worse. It also feels like earlier tracks aren't "training" you for tougher songs like they have in the past. New developer Neversoft is higher on unconventional time signatures and fast shredding than rhythmic bliss or double chords. On medium difficulty, you won't run into a blue/red combo until 2/3 through. We're still waiting to see whammy use elevated to the point where it's actually worth using.

An abundance of advertising, a few visual issues, some overly restrictive design decisions, weak new modes, and a major upping of the difficulty level might seem like a lot of potential hindrances for a game to overcome, and yet none of these problems are big enough to rob Guitar Hero III of the same brand of addictive fun that made the previous entries in the franchise so engaging.
