Rocksmith Review

 

As someone that can play a musical instrument, I'm calling Guitar Hero and Rock Band out. While "non-noodlers" were pretending that they could play the hits of The Killers by slightly thumbing at a plastic bar, we, the musicians of the world, were at...

Pulling off a perfect chorus with a tie wrapped around your head.

Rocksmith is a game that puts substance before flash and content before style. That's not to say that it lacks polish, it's just very to the point, like a game that knows its purpose, and does its best to perfect it.

Rocksmith is an unusual game, and the normal music game cheats wouldn't work. There's no real room for a no fail mode, so I'd just love to be able to unlock everything for easier access.

I have a short list of dream games I've been waiting for since my childhood. Most of them will never be made (for example, Dostoevsky vs. Donkey Kong 2020), and the ones that do get made are met by my grumpy "well, it took you long enough"-attitude --...

I also question how rewarding, in a game sense, it actually is. While playing some of the songs would be fun for some time, I don’t feel there is enough in it that would keep me wanting to progress. I’m sure we’ll start seeing this or something...

Great visual tablature for songs; Dynamic progression within songs; Some really fun songs (Black Keys!); Lots of options for those wanting to learn guitar or bass

Hardware required substantial setup; Lag made it not playable on basic setup; No metal songs; Not engaging as a 'videogame
