They're not fair in any way, shape or form.

'Hendrix Reborn' - complete Career on Lefty and Righty.
'The Inhuman Achievement' - Through the Fire and Flames on Expert
'The Long Road Ahead' - Do everything ever.

Compare to GHII:

'Play The Game' - Play GHII for a bit
'Enjoy Yourself' - Use star power
'Something else easy and made up' - who knows? Hardly DRAGONFORCE THOUGH!

I hate Achievements

GH3 makes you work for your achieveents. No wait, makes you wish you were a god to get the achievements.

I couldn't even do Through The Fire and Flames on Medium (only tried it once... still waiting for feeling to come back into my left arm), so whoever can beat it on expert must be the best player in the universe.

In all honesty, GH2 was much better - preferred the songs on it as well.

EDIT: To that video... Maybe he was possessed. Or has no wrists. If he does, well, RSI and Arthritis in the future for him! Scary!

Seem to remember that there's an issue with it, but I'll take a look.

Should be getting Singstar courtesy of my Sonycard points as well, which will be fun for my eldest as she's always singing. Put that together with a Playstation Eye (when they finally come out without the card game bundle) and it should be even more entertaining...

Guitar Hero 2 is worth a purchase if you can find it cheaply, more so if it's magical PS3-PS2 compatible. Admittedly 90% of the songs are imitations but they still rock considerably hard, and the fact it has Freezepop's seminal 'Less Talk More Rokk' made it unmissable (in my book).

The beauty of owning the game on the PS3 is no achievements!

I must say that I love the game anyway, and I'd much prefer to hear the original artists singing the songs anyway.

Mind you, for me this is the first GH game I've bought and I've only played the second in PC World (of all places).

Didn't have too much chance to play before going away for Christmas though...

I prefer Guitar Hero 2 to the 3rd one, although I can barely do any songs on the Hard level on any of the games. I guess I don't worry about the achievements because I know I won't get them. :)

Their delivery of songs for the games were always the worst part for me, the bands they chose were okish but when you have some drunken scot trying to mimic Kurt Cobain you just want to top yourself. Sweet Child of Mine was epic though since everyone knows Axle was never the real star anyway.

Don't they have a Gallows tune in this one? Please tell me it is not "In the bladder of a Moby Dick" or whatever that cheap song is called.
