|Legends Of Rock was my first experience of Guitar Hero and now I only wish I would have discovered it earlier. Once you become accustomed to the controls (which doesnt take long at all) the only time youll put down the guitar is when your hand starts aching. The soundtrack is incredibly, with many classics (old and new) and unlockable tracks, as well as an almost perfect difficulty curve which will provide hours and hours of replayability. This is one of the most played games on my Wii, and in my opinion is much better than World Tour (although thats still awesome). This makes for an excellent addition to anyones game collection on any system, and perfect for nights in with your mates.|

|I hated this game at first (before i bought it) but its so much fun and once you have mastered the songs you can buy bonus ones. Watch out for the last song when you complete it (its long)|

|What is there to say? If you like Guitar Hero, you wont be disappointed. As this was the first Guitar Hero game I tried, many of the songs included are symbolic of the franchise for me. The gameplay is great fun and challenging, and the different difficulties assure that everyone can play. The online aspect works very well, and the game is always fun with a friend.|
You cant help but feel a little like a rock star when playing this, and it might even encourage you to learn to play the guitar for real.

|We are Wii novices, and non guitar players, and this game proves this!!|
Co-ordination is a must to play this game, as is an ear for rythym, and it is very frustrating to start with. However, it is addictive, and funny to play with others. The songs are not what I would call main stream, and I am considering swapping the game for World Tour, as I seem to recognise more tunes!!! This time next year, Ill be a rock god!!

|This game is lots of fun but quite difficult if you can play a musical instrument.There are lots of different songs to play and different musicians to style. My girls love it. I did find that after a while playing it you find it wearing on your eyes and i had to limit the amount of time they play it.|

|For all those budding & repressed rockers out there, this is the game for you. Play along to your favourite, past, present and future songs. A mate has this on xbox and it is absolutely fabulous, youll soon be strutting around your living room in spandex with this game. Just remember to close the curtains!!!|

|I bought this game for my husband at Christmas - he loves it! Hes always had ambitions of being in a rock band - and now he is, sort of!!!! The only downside is that you cant download new songs - like on the World Tour game.|

|Okay, after having had this game for a few months and completing it on Easy, Medium and Hard I decided to come to Amazon and (finally) give my feedback on it. |
Ill start by giving you the issues, so we can end on a positive note:
1} I bought this for the Wii as it had been billed as revolutionary, responding faster and overall more enjoyable experience. But Ive noticed a distinctive delay when Im playing so that I have to play a note about half-a-second earlier than I would on say - the ps2 version - this pretty much makes harder songs impossible and guitar solos very hard to get 100% on.
2) The starpower on the wii version is also very unpredictable, sometimes you have to shake it about like a lunatic getting it to activate, and thus, raise your chances of making a mistake on the song, or it will activate when you DONT want it to, and just get you annoyed at it. There have been several times where Ive just turned it off in disgust because Id been saving it up for a very specific point in the song and then it activates itself.
3) I know its been named Legends of Rock, but a lot of their younger audience may be put off by the latest offering of guitar hero as the tracklist only really contains rock legends from the 60s/70s and 80s, while completely avoiding bands that rightfully deserve their place in this list, like Oasis, The Strokes and even some of the bands that have been included like The Killers, Bloc Party, The Kaiser Chiefs and bands of that sound seem out of place in these tracklists.
On the positive side this game is great for parties and for a laugh with some of your mates, although the price for a second guitar is pretty outrageous, especially when you see the product.
If you do buy this game and havent ever played another Guitar Hero game, you may find your first hour or so of playing it getting used to the controls and finding songs like Slow Ride and Hit Me With Your Best Shot hard, but stick at it and soon youll be a Guitar Hero!

|We bought this for my 11 year old son as a birthday present, but as you might expect it has proved an overnight success with young and old. I dont think Ill ever get close to his high scores, but after a few long practises, even us old guys can pretend were Jimmy Page.....oh alright then Status Quo. All it takes is a few quick fingers, a degree of hand/eye coordination and away you go. As always Amazon were tops for price and speed of delivery and I think its worth every penny. It would have been nice if there were more than a few songs we had heard of, but in fairness thats probably a sign of my age. |

|Wonderful and addictive. Never thought I would like this game, but Im a rock fan... and this was one of my first experiences on the Wii. Trust me, if you were born around 67 you will love it. Or for that matter, earlier or later... Im trying to appeal to My Generation!!|
Great at any age. Go for it.

|This is a fantastic game!!|
The songs are pretty much good rock songs! Personally I like this kind of music, but friends of mine who are not fans still love this game, and many a night has been spent rocking out to Hit me with your best shot by Pat Benatar or Barracuda by Heart. One of my favourite songs is Cliffs of Dover by Eric Johnson, this amazing song gets stuck in your head as you jam!
You only have to do a quick search on youtube to find thousands of videos showing you songs and gameplay, and the ultimate challenge to get 100% on Through the Fire and the Flames by Dragonforce!
Who would have thought that a plastic guitar with 5 coloured buttons could be so much fun??
