Doesn't deserve an encore. I feel like I am having déjà vu all over again. Another year and yet another Rock Band and Guitar Hero have landed, both being what...

Some decent tracks

Terrible note charting ; Confusing note highway ; Awful visuals ; Long load times

We Will Get Fooled Again.

Calibration issues; GH guitars work better than plastic one; John Mayer; No challenge; No point

When it comes to attempts at innovation, gamers tend to only remember the successful endeavors. The mediocre ones fall by the wayside; they're temporarily and briefly applauded for the effort but as they didn't fulfill expectations, they're soon...

The Ugly: When I almost snapped the guitar neck in half after the latest, "I played the note, I played it bi***!" freak-out.

While the concept of playing such a game with a real guitar is enticing, Power Gig seems content to leave it at that, without ever pushing the envelope or advancing the genre in any way other than the arguably gimmicky hardware.

Power Off.

You can plug the guitar into an amp; Clapton, Kid Rock and Dave Mathews fans rejoice

Playing said guitar isn?t fun; can?t play it as a real guitar in game; weak setlist; silly story mode; no bass guitar option; poor graphics

At last, a guitar game controller with strings like an actual guitar. Too bad the game itself isn't as innovative or polished.

More realistic or not, it’s a little late in the rhythm-game slugfest for Power Gig to stumble over elements that Rock Band and Guitar Hero get right, like an easily activated overdrive and a reasonably low bar for unlocking new tracks. Couple those...

Power Gig: Rise of the SixString is a jam-along musical instrument sim that gives virtual rockers the option of mastering of a more challenging, more realistic guitar-playing mode. Fans of earlier music simulation games can choose Power Gig's

Power Gig: Rise of the SixString- PS3

 

Pity the poor child who wakes up on Christmas morning with Power Gig under the tree instead of the Rock Band 3 he asked for. He's likely to feel like the nation would were we to wake up in November 2012 and perennial third-party candidate Lyndon...

Power Gig: Rise of the SixString- PS3

 

We have a game that tries its best but still feels a half-decade behind, we have a guitar that isn't, and we have a drum kit so flawed it's almost offensive. The crew at Seven45 are very nice people and we admire them for trying something new - but...

Power Gig: Rise of the SixString- PS3

 

If you're looking at this as a music game, stick with either Rock Band or Guitar Hero. They might not feature real guitars that you can plug into an amp, but at least you'll get a better gaming experience and more players with whom to share the...
