New developer Neversoft didn’t turn Guitar Hero on its ear, this much is true, but why mess with a winning formula? Guitar Hero III is more of what makes Guitar Hero such a trip, with a fantastic combination of immensely popular and utterly unknown songs, enough skill variance to both coddle newbies and frustrate pros, and utterly addictive multiplayer modes. The Wii and the PlayStation 3 are getting their first doses of Guitar Hero, each with their own little tweaks and features (along with some of the best online play the Wii has to offer thus far), but if you have an Xbox 360, shell out for that version. Leaderboards, achievements, and the easiest-to-obtain downloadable content including Foo Fighters and Velvet Revolver song packs that have already been released make the Xbox 360 version the choice for Guitar Hero aficionados. Really, if you’ve been hesitant up to this point to shell out the cash for the big plastic guitar thing with the game attached to it, Guitar Hero III for any of the systems it’s been released on is the best reason thus far to take the plunge.
