I bought it yesterday, just the game by itself and I'm using my X-Plorer controller. Lot of fun so far. The songs are a lot more finger-twisting than GH2, and it's a pain in the ass to hit the hammer-ons properly- I'm missing them a lot more than I should.
But so far my favorite songs are When We Were Young, Go With The Flow, Gimme Shelter, and (Don't Fear) The Reaper can be a rush. I haven't played them all, so... yea.
And I played it for two and a half hours last night and got through about 20 songs. Also, I heard about Bongo talking about the "accuracy of the drumming animations in GH3", well, he should see this, for all I know you could mimic the drummers and play the song in real life.
