Summary: I know: Power Gig has been out for months. It was skewered by critics. It was bought by no one (hilariously, on YourGamerCards, a site used to track trophies, only 260 people have played this game, and only 6 have platted it). BUT, it is now forty bucks at Gamestop, for the full band set. "What the heck?", I thought, and picked it up yesterday.
Summary: When I got this game for Christmas I was expecting something revolutionary, something that would change music games. I was wrong, In this game you can't play real notes on the guitar, it is just like guitar hero with the colored buttons but instead of buttons it has strings. The setlist is terrible and if I were you I would stick with guitar hero or rockband. No wonder this game is $8!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
dont buy if you think it will help you learn to play guitar, like I did

Summary: newsflash:Theres no possible way this game could help you learn the guitar! I had high hopes that it would. I dont know what the point of using a real guitar with strings is, if they are just going to copy guitar hero play format. If you dont already know , heres the facts: this game doesnt teach you anything about chords or how to play a guitar. It is basically a clone of guitar here.
Summary: If you were into the other music game guitars and never bothered to pick up a real guitar yourself, then your probably going to be disappointed. This game can be hard. For me and my small fingers, having one of them anywhere off center between frets resulted in a no-go-note. You will need to adjust your finger tips to sensing the very small frets on this games tiny guitar, if you don't lose feeling on them from pressing to hard in the first place.
