Power Gig: Rise of the Six String Review


Is Power Gig: Rise of the Six String a Jukebox Hero or a Jukebox Zero?

While Power Gig’s core gameplay is competent, having a real guitar adds very little to the enjoyment of the game and in fact, sucks the fun out of it by making it harder to play. Power Gig is Guitar Hero with strings. That's it. Its a one-trick pony...

Power Gig: Rise of the SixString


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

Power Gig: Rise of the SixString


I feel bad for Power Gig: Rise of the SixString. It's hard enough to make it in the highly competitive world of video games, but this is a game that promises worthwhile changes to a genre dangerously close to becoming stale. Instead of giving you some...

While it's a sharp improvement over Konami's Rock Revolution, Power Gig: Rise of the SixString won't make you forget about Rock Band 3. Here's a game that tries so hard to be original that it ends up missing the point. With terrible graphics and an...

Power Gig: Rise of the SixString Review


Despite its impressive setlist and promising potential, PowerGig: Rise of the SixString's cheap plastic guitar controller, cluttered interface, and obnoxious story mode make it a music/rhythm genre alternative that's not worth your time.

Excellent track list; Playing on guitar controller forms real calluses

Guitar controller is a piece of crap; Cluttered interface; Obnoxious locked-song structure; Godawful story mode; Post-traumatic stress syndrome

Power Gig: Rise of the SixString Review


When the company behind the First Act series of musical instruments announced they'd be getting into the music game business, quite a few people became pretty interested in what these guys could bring to the genre - could players plug in their First...

I appreciate the efforts of Seven45 Studios to try and move the music game genre forward, but they seemed hesitant to commit to what First Act is all about, which is in getting real instruments into people's hands, but that hesitancy in this product...

Power Gig: Rise of the SixString


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 Gig: Rise of the SixString R..


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

Power Gig: Rise of the SixString


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- Xbox 360


After some serious consideration, I cannot come up with a single good reason why someone would buy PowerGig: Rise of the SixString. Even morbid curiosity is hard to justify.
