Why does everyone love Guitar Hero 3?

GH1 came out in Nov. 2005 for the PS2 Console. Since its release it’s been a cult hit. Now with its newest edition, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, Activision/Red Octane continue to prove that they have the right formula to succeed.

 

Play an actual instrument: GH is the first game that where you actually play on a guitar. Although it looks a little silly at first, but once you pick it up you wont be able to stop. The game allows you to learn an instrument without having to sacrifice years of your life. By following simple (relatively) keystrokes you’ll be making music in no time. When you play it REALLY feels like you are playing a guitar & making music.

 

Good Music: Every single Guitar Hero boasts awesome songs by artists such as Jimi Hendrix, The Ramones and Incubus. While many critics are angry that they leave out many classics I still believe that Red Octane has made a good selection of songs. These are songs we all wish we could play and now we can

 

Visuals: Ever see a Guitar Hero setup in best buy? Ever see Guitar Hero in public? It’s always swarmed by random people just amazed at the sight. Not only is the game incredibly fun but it just looks awesome. The flashing lights and rainbow colored effects lure pretty much anyone to the screen.

 

Easy to Pick Up / Hard to Master: When you first pick up the guitar, you will suck. Everyone does J. But as you continue you to play you will see yourself slowly getting better. It’s very gratifying to complete a song and overcome a difficult rift. This will motivate you to reach the next level & in turn become a master.

 

Group Fun: While hardcore RPGs and FPS will deter most newcomers, Guitar Hero welcomes them. The game shines when more than 1 person plays. Playing with a group provides much hilarity and entertainment.

 

 

 

Here is my small list, I could keep going but you get the idea. With the upcoming release of Rock Band only time will tell if Guitar Hero can maintain to be the #1 rocker. Until the Next Time!
