On the gameplay side of things, “Legends of Rock” includes a co-op career mode, which can be played either online or off. The new battle mode lets gamers compete head-to-head on the same song, with each player using special power-ups to try and cause their opponent to make a mistake. During the career mode, you’ll be battling it out with avatars of former Guns n’ Roses guitarist Slash and Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave. The guitar controller included is based on a classic Les Paul design and, finally, it’s wireless. As fas as I’m concerned, it’s the best guitar controller available. It’s heavier and just feels right.
“Legends of Rock” certainly lives up to the “Guitar Hero” name and well worth a purchase. Is it better than “Rock Band”? That depends on what kind of experience you’re looking for. But if all you want to do is rock out and unleash your inner Angus Young, “Legends of Rock” should be right up your alley.
