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.

Aside from the fact that Harmonix is releasing new downloadable content for Rock Band 3 every week, there are no new iterations of it or Guitar Hero on the horizon. But Rocksmith isn’t a music game, per se, but it is a guitar game. “What’s the difference?” you ask? (PS3, Rocksmith, Xbox 360) 10/10

Could be the excuse I am looking for to learn more guitar.
Sidology  +   1284d ago
That is EXACTLY what this game should do for you.
borisfett  +   1284d ago
This isn't just an excuse to play it. It's the reason to do it. =P

Won't come cheap though.
RoboRyan  +   1284d ago
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_Riggz  +   1283d ago
Can you use your own guitar? Do they provide a connector?
RoboSpiff  +   1284d ago
This game intrigues me, but at the same time I know I will suck at it.
Sidology  +   1284d ago
The beauty is that you will not suck if you invest time in it!
kikizoo  +   1284d 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)
borisfett  +   1284d ago
That's the whole point, mate. It teaches you to suck a little less. =P

10? Really?
Sidology  +   1284d ago
Yes. Really.

There'llll be bass guitar support in the form of an add-on, apparently. Not too sure of the specifics.
ironwolf  +   1284d ago
I'll have to give this a try; it at least looks like it has potential.
RustyMagus  +   1284d ago
They should get some piano DLC. I'd play that.
TukkerIntensity  +   1284d ago
Song List is weak. I think I'll wait to see what DLC they have. The game is intriguing however - I've always wanted to control my games with my guitar >;)=
ironwolf  +   1284d ago
Yeah, I just looked at the play list. Dating myself, but most of the songs I've never even heard of. I guess I'll wait and see what kind of DLC there will be. Disappointing.
Infernostew  +   1284d ago
The Cure and Titus Andronicus make it worth the price tag alone for me.
Spitfire_Riggz  +   1282d ago
Well I mean maybe they picked those songs out to help beginners? Imagine this being the first song you had to play whiplash by metallica
Applederp  +   1284d ago
CAN I DO BREAKDOWNS?
JellyJelly  +   1284d ago
Try nailing the Buckethead songs in this one ;)
GroundsKeeperJimbo  +   1283d ago
Picked this up yesterday, it's quite amazing.

Didn't stop playing because of boredom, but because my fingers were killing me.
