Over the weekend, my partner and I went to the mall for a short browse at some shops and we stopped by a EB Games. When we were there, there was a guy playing Guitar Hero III for Xbox 360. I have seen other playing it before but didn't think it was that fun at all...
So standing back a bit with my partner, we were observing and analyse how does the gadget work while this other guy was playing. When he done with it, I thought I'd give it a try (just as there wasn't many people around too) and played one track.
WOW My good! It wasn't too bad with the game, a bit more coordination and tempo-needed but everyone will get their groove on. The controller was alright to hold and pretty light, yet the buttons feel sturdy enough for prolong abuse of your guitar hero career.
Without a doubt, we're hooked and was thinking of getting a couple to add to out Wii.
So today, we spotted a better deal at Dick Smith Electronics and they have Guitar Hero III bundle for $158, $12 cheaper than EB Games. We got home, got it all set up and started getting to it!
First off, what's the difference with Wii version compare to Xbox360 (or PS3 even)... Well first it has built in rumble, and extra speaker for additional sound effect from your "guitar". And when you have enough Star Power, you can tilt your "guitar" and it will do special thing.
Also additionally, with Nintendo WFC (WiFi Connection) you can play online and challenge other players around the world - you don't need a Friend code for this. This mark the first multiplayer game for Wii, which will equate them along with Xbox360 and PS3, although it's not as full experience compare to Xbox Live or PSN's offering, but it certainly is a right direction for Nintendo.
Well we had great fun for the last 3 hours with our Guitar Hero III on Wii and I recommend this to anyone with Wii, it's so much better than Xbox360/PS3 version. I'll be looking to get another wireless "guitar" for Co-Op and Multiplayer mode... I'm hook on this game now!
