    For Those About to Rock, Wii Salute You!

    The Stuff of Legends!

    You’ve asked for it, and Activision is finally delivering; almost two years after the original game hit store shelves, the hugely popular Guitar Hero series is arriving on Wii in the form of Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. If you're new to the franchise, here's the rundown: The game ships with a guitar controller. (The Wii version is wireless, much to our delight; you plug your Wii remote into a secure cubbyhole in the guitar, and you'll be rockin' from the kitchen in no time.) The five colored buttons on the neck of the guitar correspond with colored notes scrolling from top to bottom onscreen. You simply select a song, press the correct buttons in sequence, and flick a strumming switch in unison with the notes; just like that, a rockstar is born. The real fun starts once you’ve played a few tunes and built up some street cred on your plastic axe. Then just invite some friends over and crank the volume. Don’t forget to invite the neighbors too—that way they don’t call the cops.

    Legends of Rock is similar to previous Guitar Hero games, but the display has been overhauled. The score and star power graphics have changed, and 50-, 100-, and 200-note streaks are now announced while you riff.

    In addition to a new developer (other games have come from Harmonix) and new hardware, GHIII offers a whole set list of totally new tracks, some of which have been notably missing from the series thus far: you can finally play along with Metallica’s “One,” Pearl Jam’s “Even Flow,” Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage,” and Smashing Pumpkins’ “Cherub Rock,” to name a few. Also, more of the music tracks than ever before are performed by the original band, making it that much easier to get your rock on.

    If you’re familiar with the series, not much has fundamentally changed. You now have the choice of playing through the Career mode with two players or trying your hand at a completely new Battle mode featuring power-ups you can use to throw off your rival’s mojo. You can render an opponent’s strings useless for a few seconds, or shake your adversary's fret board wildly. If you have only one guitar, worry not—just connect to the Nintendo WFC to challenge friend and foe alike, or search the leaderboards to see who’s the top rocker.
