Yes, it’s true, we are almost on the 5th edition of the Guitar Hero franchise meaning that Guitar Hero 3 is now two generations obsolete, but still, for anyone who is on the look out for a great price on a GH3 bundle deal, it’s now back up on HMV for just £29.99.
So if you’re one of those people who is still wavering over whether to get yourself a copy of Guitar Hero or not. If you’ve heard all the hype but can’t help thinking that the whole five coloured button things looks really lame, I have to admit, I know exactly where you’re coming from. Initially, being someone who struggling to learn the real guitar, I found the whole idea behind Guitar Hero completely pathetic, sneered at friends who tried to tell me how good it was and was convinced I would never sink so low…
How wrong I was, because apart from maybe Wii Sports, it’s the only game I still consistently play out of my whole Wii game collection. One of the best things about Legends of Rock for me was the song selection. Even though I am not the biggest rock music fan, there wasn’t a song I didn’t like – hmm expect maybe the Tenacious D track although to be fair it is bearable – and was actually grateful to the game for exposing me to a load of tracks I would never have come across otherwise.
What I really realised about Guitar Hero was that it’s more about listening to the music rather than playing it, and the wireless guitar simply offers you that extra bit of interaction. Overall however, Guitar Hero is a game which should not be dismissed or scorned – something which has become very fashionable thanks to all those rockers who like to have a pop at it – as it’s a good sociable kind of game which gets you listening to some great music. So at just £30, don’t put it off anymore and get hold of a copy.
