Anyone else pick it up? Goooood stuff! :p

I've been having a lot of fun playing battle mode with my buddies. At first I wasn't much of a fan of it but after a few really really good battles with everyone yelling and screaming in the background it gets pretty intense. A lot of times it just comes down to who misses the first note on hard and expert settings. I love good party games like this.

Not sure what to make of the song list yet though. I haven't quite unlocked all the songs yet to we'll have to see.

I'll get it as soon as I get my next paycheck, probably around the 8th :D

I download the demo and had a blast with that. This will work out well for me since I never got that 2nd guitar for GH2.

Everyone is ****ting all over the PS3 version over at Gamespot. They say the controller is nearly worthless from lag, excessive battery use, and bricking. I'm glad I didn't run out and buy this one today.

I'm going to wait a bit to hear some more reviews first to see how prevalent the issues are.

After playing it, there is *something* that makes the way it is played different from GH1 and 2. I kick ass at GH1 and 2, I can play through nearly every song on expert...but on 3, I'm having trouble hitting notes on Normal difficulty. Like the timing is off or something...I haven't quite figured it out, but something definitely seems different to me.

My best friend thought the same thing. He came over, picked up the guitar, started a song on Hard, and failed out within moments. He was like "WTF!?!? Is the timing off?" It's like the time window you have to hit a note accurately is smaller than it was on GH1 and 2.

You have the PS3 version, right? This is what a lot of people are complaining about over at GS, even after calibrating for lag.

It's more of your blatant PS3 trolling, but damn if it couldn't be more true right now. :D

one of my friends picked it up (i cant yet, i have too much work to do, bleh) and i played battle mode.

the game is freaking awesome. battle mode is so addictive. on expert, you can win in like 20 seconds, but when you get used to it, the battles get intense.

definitely pick this game up if you have the cash. it's well worth the money! :D

I got a question, is battle mode the only mode for online? Can you just play the song all the way through and see who gets the highest score like in GH2?

I picked up the PS3 version. Fun game though it did take some getting used to. There is definitely something different between the ps2 and ps3 version of the game. I've gone back over songs I 3 starred to win the game and can now 5 star 'em.

There are wide reports of both 360 and ps3 guitar problems though. I have had notes randomly drop or get played when I haven't done anything to the guitar. I'm just glad to read I'm not alone and that it looks like a platform independent problem. Now I'm just wondering if I should return the whole thing as defective or not.

i used my guitar from Guitar Hero II and i experienced no problems with random notes played/missed.

I assume you played something other than easy mode? From what I've read the problems happen more often the higher the skill is set.

Also it could just be the guitar. why they made it into two pieces that lock together I have no clue.

easier to carry, which a lot of people complained about, since gh is a party game.

I got the one from wallmart which has the wired guitar. So now I have two of the same guitars. I have no issues at all. Game plays great even in expert.

Circuit City is gonna take it back for a full refund. I'm gonna pick it up again once they fix their problems.

So yours is working OK? I was gonna pick up the 360 version today but I was worried about all the negative feedback. I do have the GH2 controller for 360.
