Rocksmith (Xbox 360)

 

With the oversaturated and ailing rhythm game genre in a state of decline, it seems ill-timed to launch a new guitar-focused music franchise. But Ubisoft has pulled one out of left field with Rocksmith--a guitar game that successfully bridges the gap...

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.

Review: Rocksmith

 

For many years there has been music games wanting to recreate that feeling of being a rock star on a stage. The market was flooded with music genre games battling each other on who made the game best and then the instruments that came with them, but...

Overall I would say that for those who are willing to invest some time into the game and in the long run want to play guitar, Rocksmith is the best thing that I have seen than going to private lessons. I look forward to playing more and learning what...

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

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...

Review: Rocksmith (360/PS3)

 

Rocksmith presents some solid learning fundamentals, but it's still no replacement for a real teacher.

Good setlist; you can use any guitar with an electrical output; makes technical finger exercises fun

Fixed difficulty is frustrating; leaves out some important musical fundamentals; concert venues you play in are visually bland

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

 

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...
