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.

Rocksmith Review


Years ago, my Guitar Hero bundle arrived for review and after getting a feel for the game, I couldn't stomach it. Honestly, I simply didn't like it. And it's not just me, anyone else who plays the guitar agrees - this game is impossible for an actual...

Technical tidbits aside, I really believe that RockSmith is the future of music games and that publishers such as EA/MTV Games and Activision will strive to achieve an experience as close as possible to RockSmith - again, assuming there aren't a slew...

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 --...

It's a wonderful feeling that makes it easy to overlook Rocksmith's little quirks. It's as simple as this: if you want to have fun with friends in a rhythm game, buy Rock Band 3, but if you want to learn guitar, buy Rocksmith. It works, it's fun, and...

Rocksmith Review


I am not going to lie, when I heard about Rocksmith, I rolled my eyes; another rhythm game featuring a guitar that I will never find space for among my collection of plastic instruments.

Very user-friendly ; Cool song progression ; Adaptive difficulty

Doesn't cater to advanced players ; Audio lag issues

I am not going to lie, when I heard about Rocksmith, I rolled my eyes; another rhythm game featuring a guitar that I will never find space for among my collection of plastic instruments. Then I realized that it uses a real guitar, and not a semi-real...

Your first chance to be a real guitar hero.

Real guitar tutorial, Progressive dynamic difficulty, Skill-enhancing minigames

Uncertain DLC future

Rocksmith Review


Forget plastic axes; this guitar game is the real deal.

The technology works very well ; Tons of learning tools for beginners ; Great song selection ; Difficulty scales to your ability

Presentation and campaign are weak ; Intimidating at first for newcomers

Rocksmith Review


Ubisoft's guitar training game adds a whole new element to the rhythm gaming genre, teaching you guitar as you play. But how much fun is it?

Rocksmith is not perfect, and comes with a few design foibles and caveats that keep it from excellence. However, as a new IP and a ballsy take on the floundering music genre, Rocksmith is an awesome first step. The technology is fantastic, and while...

Rocksmith- PS3


I can’t help but think if Rocksmith had come out years ago before any of the other music/rhythm games that use a virtual guitar it would probably be the premier guitar based video game. That being said, Rocksmith is quite a different game and can stand...

Rocksmith PS3 Review


Rhythm games have been around since the dawn of time (well, the 1970s, but that's before my time so as far as I'm concerned, it's the dawn of time), starting in the form of dancing games and later adding instruments into the mix. With every new game...

Allows the use of a real guitar/bass ; Helps to build up skills slowly ; Guitarcade is always a laugh

No online multiplayer
