    Damn, is this one fine game. If you've ever dreamed of shredding blistering licks in front of an adoring audience, you need to pick up Guitar Hero III.

    Kudos to Aspyr for making a great port of the game and keeping all of the important aspects of the Guitar Hero III experience intact, including the online play, which is as simple as jumping into the online menu and challenging other guitar heroes. Still, if you can buy the console versions of the game, you're better off doing that.

    my first venture into the world of music games and wasnt sure at $100 for a game but it was worth it. i played the hell out of this game and had alot of fun doing it. the diffuculty setting was abit insane especially for people who are new to this typ of game . it felt like it was for the hardcore fans who played Gh 1 and 2 prior to this game . still i enjoyed it and it has a great track list of some great rock songs not by some crappy cover bands like the first 2.
