Rocksmith

Destructoid

  • Summary: 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 -- Rocksmith is one of these games.

Rocksmith (Australian Review)

  • Excerpt: Rocksmith is what many have been waiting for since Guitar Hero exploded on to the scene a few years ago. Yes, it was great to grab a plastic guitar and jam with friends, but in the back of everyone’s mind the thought lingered – “Wouldn’t it be awesome if I could do this with a real guitar?”. Well Ubisoft has made that thought a reality, and created a marvelous learning tool along with it.

  • Summary: Rocksmith is Ubisoft's chance to provide guitar fans with a real teaching aid, but can it cross over into game territory, too?

Rocksmith review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Chris Cornell is wailing “Whoooo gets mystifiiiiiiiied” while we’re furiously fingerpicking during the bridge of Soundgarden’s masterpiece “Outshined.” Our eyes dart from TV to guitar and back; there’s an avalanche of orange, blue, and purple notes heading toward us. The intensity has ratcheted up, we’re sweating a little bit - and this is just rehearsal for our upcoming gig. Rocksmith is many things: videogame, instructional device, six-string sandbox.
  • Pros: Your 360 becomes an amp, Interesting, diverse song list, Messing with loads of sounds
  • Cons: Dull, tired career mode, Likely intimidating to newbies, Hefty price of $80

  • Excerpt: Ubisoft is aiming to set the gaming world on its collective ears, in this case their musical ears with the first game that uses real guitars. Now the statement about the first game may be true to an extent, as some may recall Rockband 3 had a pro guitar mode, though with some limitations….for that one it had to be a special guitar that supported MIDI.

  • Conclusion: Epiphone model. If you’ve already got an electric guitar lying around, you’re better off skipping the bundle and purchasing just the game. RS isn’t so much a party game, as it is more of a teaching tool. RS goes over a lot of guitar techniques including slides, bends, tremelo’s, and chords. The game features technique challenges that let you hone your skill and earn bronze, silver and gold medals.

Rock Out, And Learn Something Too

GIN
9 January 2012
  • Excerpt: I love those guitar-based party games. I've spent many evenings with friends playing The Beatles Rock Band, singing along, banging on the drums and yes, strumming the plastic guitar controller with its five colorful buttons. I've even seen people tackle some very difficult songs with Rock Band or Guitar Hero on Expert, and was impressed. But in the end, did anybody really learn anything? Most of those Guitar Hero warriors would be lost if they picked up a real guitar.
