Not possible to play full game on an up-to-date Xbox 360

cmdrkeen2, Ebay
5 August 2013
  • Summary: The current Xbox 360 update messes up the controller recognition, so it is unable to recognize that you have the SixString guitar... the game thinks that you have a Guitar Hero guitar or something. You can still play the game, but you'll be stuck playing it as though you have one of the toy guitars from Guitar Hero, and you can only play in the toy guitar simple mode.

Disapointing

  • Summary: I bought this game for my husband so he could learn how to play the guitar, however it is just to learn how to play other games such as guitar hero... nice guitar and ok to pass time, but not what it promised..

Seller Great, Game Sucks

19damien88, Ebay
7 April 2011
  • Summary: The seller was great, received the product very quickly. The game on the other hand was very disappointing. I expected to actually be using the strings and frets, not hitting any string on the right fret. You can literally be playing fret on a high E, play the low E string and as long as the right fret is pressed it counts.

lame game

wallsk8r, Ebay
7 April 2011
  • Summary: i thought it would be fun, like guitar hero, but it is not. it is really childish. the interface and gameplay is lacking and childish overall. also, the guitar is not very cool. it is too hard to use and it is too cheap to sound good on a real amp.

never again. never, never never again.

  • Summary: OK, the game itself isn't that bad. Despite the cheesy graphics and goofy storyline, the music is actually OK. My bad review is on the instrument peripherals. The airstrike drums are completely frustrating and UNfun. They don't register hits half the time. You're not actually playing drums, you're striking the air with the drumsticks. The IR sensor has to be exactly aligned with the drum sensors and you have to "shake" it to get it to register the hit.

Gig Guitar

J. White, Amazon
11 January 2011
  • Summary: It is a fun game but pretty difficult. I thought I would be pretty good because I can play a mean regular guitar hero guitar but I found it to be very difficult. You deffinatly need tough fingers. It comes with a pic. I bought it for my 12 year old son for Christmas. He doesn't play it much. I think he would rather play the original guitar. It does work with all of the Rock Bands and Guitar Hero Games.

Great Idea that was NOT Pulled Off

  • Summary: The game itself is pretty awesome, however the "real guitar" controller is a piece of crap. Good thing it can be hooked up to a guitar hero controller.

Game

Karen Caprio-devore, Amazon
30 December 2010
  • Summary: The product was fine. The game istelf was a disappointment. My son was expecting a more guitar like experience with this game, but that was not the case. They added strings to the guitar but its still the same concept as just pushing the buttons on guitar hero. Overall, I think the game was totally overpriced for all the more that was in it.
