Like the former version of Guitar Hero, Guitar Hero III now has plenty of rock music designed to insure the delight of music lovers. The nature of the game remains much the same as before, although there are much graphics now present and the songs are at a much higher level of difficulty, made to challenge the skills in guitar playing of the more dedicated music gamers. The advances in technology continue to contribute to the sophistication of newer rock versions like Guitar Hero III over the previous versions, and as the makers benefit from the video games reviews.
Guitar Hero III boasts of a guitar controller and a strummer. It also has a new set of fret buttons. The game now shows the notes on the screen and the player has to hit the matching buttons fast in order to create the music. The big collection of hit soundtracks in the new version will give you much pleasure with the effect of making you feel as having created them yourself. Covering several generations of music, you can find Santana’s ‘Black Magic Woman’ or ZZ Top’s ‘LaGrange’ in it. You will also have rock pieces selected from the 1990s sung by Red Hot Chilli Peppers or Pearl Jam. These are among the new features that will give you much entertainment and fun playing the new game. The favorable video games reviews of the earlier Guitar Hero editions must have contributed to the increased sophistication of the new series.
The increased level of difficulties in the songs is the primary reasons the music fun and lover will spend hours in the game trying to improve his skills. Guitar lovers are somehow addicted to the instrument once they learn playing it; the same thing happens with Guitar Hero III – the addiction just follows as a matter of course. Experienced guitar players can now see in the new version which notes can be pulled off, or may be hammered on, as they are prominently shown in glowing brightness on the screen.
One special feature in Guitar Hero III is that you will be able to keep track of all your note streaks, which allows so much concentration while you are playing the game. Text messages flash also on the screen regularly advising you of the streak milestones that you have reached. The star power meter has also big improvements from the older versions, which make the player glued to the game for hours. He can very well forget the long hours he is in the game and could even miss his meals just pursuing his addiction to the rock music in the new Guitar Hero III. The player may just be duplicating what the makers of the new guitar game version experienced when they worked on the game – they also missed their meals trying to perfect it. Some of them may even include these missed meals in their making of their video games reviews.
