A good rhythm game fresh on the Wii.
Review written by
Guitar Hero is probably one of the most innovative experiences on any console, but the Wii is not any console. Can this rhythm-based game live up to the controls of Wii Sports and Zelda?! Yep, it could be the best control scheme yet on the Wii, and it doesn't even use the WiiMote!
I told you about the controls it boasted so I'll start there. GH3 is played through a Guitar, it has 5 colored buttons up near the head, a Whammer and switch which acts as the strings are positioned on the base. It's finished off to a high quality (and stickers!) and even has a pouch for your WiiMote! (The guitar is classed as an "extension controller").
There is one down side though. When you start up the Wii you then have to take your remote out of the patch (said easier than done) and then tell the game to start. Also the remote needs a good push to fit into the pouch with the wrist strap on, so it's easier to take it off.
The graphics can seem bland and lifeless at times (and the drummer seems a little... deformed!), but at others it's candy for your eye. On one of the stadiums there are neon lights and it looks as if it's being broadcast in 1080i.
The online play has its own menu. Here you can access leaderboards and much more. You can see the developer is really trying hard to keep this game alive as prizes can be won.
