Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock Cheats & Cheat Codes

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock Cheats & Cheat Codes

The Guitar Hero series of video games broke new ground when it debuted in 2005. By introducing guitar-shaped controllers and a huge catalog of music, it quickly broke sales records. So it’s no wonder that the developers promptly started working on sequels. Of these sequels, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock is a fan favorite. Originally released in 2007, Neversoft and Vicarious Visions introduced a host of real-life rock stars as playable characters and opponents, as well as multiplayer Battle Mode. As with previous entries in the series, there are plenty of Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock cheats available, as well as bonus characters that you can unlock when you defeat them in Career mode.

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock includes 13 playable characters. Some of these are carried over from previous editions, while others are new. Some characters (such as Midori) are completely original. Meanwhile, some of the real-life stars include Tom Morello.
