"Is this sippost to be easy?"
Guitar Hero 3 is a good game but not an easy one at all. You think all you'd half is pretend to play a guitar but it's nothing like that.
There are four difficulties; Easy, Medium, Hard and Expert. Expert is way to hard to imagine, there are so many unnecessary notes, that it's not even funny. I don't know if there are a lot of games where you can say it's to do that task in real life then it is to do in the game. Like why does it half to be so hard, it suppose to be for kids who don't know how to play guitar and instead, you get that.
This game also has one of the worst end of the games song, what I mean by that is, the song you half to beat in expert to really beat the game. It's Through The Fire Flames. Anyone who can beat this song dis-serves a medal. Because the difficulty, is totally legendary. If you try the song then you will literally loose in less then five seconds. Now, I don't really think it's fair that the Intro is done by a professional keyboardist (yeah that's right, even though the name of the game is GUITAR Hero the hardest part of the song can still be done by the keyboardist), the solo is also done by two guitarists, now is that fair? Sure its challenging but it's safe to say that unless you're a hard core expert, then you'll never be able to do it. If you're even able to hit enough notes in this incredibly hard mess of a song to even pass it, then your hand will get pretty soar from most of these part.
This game also has the worst/hardest achievements in gaming history. There's Now that's Impressive, where you get 750,000 points in a song, the only way to do the is to master the psychopathic fury called Through the Fire and Flames. There's also Button Master where you beat the Hard mode tour or the Expert tour with the standard controller, this one is impossible, why can't the achievement just be play five songs in Hard mode with the controller, or beat the Easy mode tour with the Controller, not the whole tour. The next one is called Met Your Maker, This one requires you to beat one of the makers of Guitar Hero 3, if you're even lucky enough to be matched up with one of these guys the good luck, because they can get anywhere from 99-100% on any song on any difficulty.
When you play in career mode you also half to play against one of the most unfair bosses in history, this guy shoots a bunch of power ups at you to make you miss and you can do the same only he not a lot happens when you try to make him miss, he also gets all the easy parts but you get all the insane parts.
So other then having bad achievements, hard bosses and goals, this is a pretty good game once you get the hang of it.
Reviewer's Rating: 2.5 - Playable
