Macworld UK has released a review of Guitar Hero III: Legends Of Rock. The game challenges players to keep up with the rhythm of the music as they rock their way to the top of the score board. Macworld gave Guitar Hero III a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:

Occasionally you’ll see groups of notes that look like stars. If you play those notes successfully you’ll ratchet up your ‘Star Power’, which you can activate by lifting the guitar’s neck upward sharply. On screen, you’ll see your Guitar Hero begin to do tricks and hijinks that win applause and hoots from the crowd. It also temporarily doubles any points you get from playing a long streak of notes without missing a beat.

There are multiple difficulty levels and multiplayer modes. Two players can gig together, one playing lead guitar, the other on bass or rhythm guitar. In Battle Mode you compete against another player and can jinx them with equipment failures or other problems.

The musical catalogue consists of well known songs including Anarchy in the UK by the Sex Pistols and Paint It, Black by the Rolling Stones. Of the 71 playable songs, some are bonus tracks that you unlock by buying them in a record store using money earned from gigs.
