TGV Review: Rocksmith

Kyle writes: A lot of people are going to tell you that you shouldn’t get Rocksmith. “It’s too niche,” they’ll say. “It’s too hard,” they’ll say. “Music games are dead,” they’ll say. But here’s the skinny—Rocksmith is niche, is hard, and, for the most part, music games are dead.

Could be the excuse I am looking for to learn more guitar.

That is EXACTLY what this game should do for you.

This isn't just an excuse to play it. It's the reason to do it. =P

Won't come cheap though.

It's not cheap, but when you calculate the cost of buying a guitar and taking lessons, it works out to be a decent value.

Spitfire_Riggz2411d ago

Can you use your own guitar? Do they provide a connector?

RoboSpiff2411d ago

This game intrigues me, but at the same time I know I will suck at it.

Sidology2411d ago

The beauty is that you will not suck if you invest time in it!

kikizoo2411d ago

The beauty of real art, real instrument, is that even with work, you can't be sure to be good (unlike guitar hero, rock band)

borisfett2411d ago

That's the whole point, mate. It teaches you to suck a little less. =P

AronDeppert2411d ago

Sorat kinda think Rocksmith looks pretty sweet.

Desert Turtle2411d ago

I can't even play a Guitar Hero guitar.
