Rocksmith 2014 Review (PS3)

PlayStation LifeStyle
24 October 2013
  • Summary: Why can’t they make games for all real life applications?
  • Pros: Learn/practice guitar in the most accessible and fun way possible., Varied song selection with new DLC coming constantly., Virtually no load times., Recommendations personalize the game to you.
  • Cons: Early missions seem to push the game's own agenda., Some won't find enjoyment in this..., ...simply because they don't want to put in the effort required.

  • 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)

1 October 2012
  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

Rocksmith (PS3) Review

canadianonlinegamers.com
29 October 2012
  • Excerpt: As entertaining as games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero can be, neither is particularly adept at really teaching you how to play a guitar. This was a fact that really hit home for me. I just could not get used to the pressing of buttons, switching from lead to rhythm and back, without really learning the song structure. I tried for a spell to adapt to this style of virtual guitar gaming, but I ultimately gave up trying.

Rocksmith 2014 – im Test für PS3 und 360

22 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Oliver Schultes meint: Rocksmith 2014 bietet eine abwechslungsreiche Songliste (von Oasis über Iron Maiden bis zu Mastodon), die Tugenden des sehr guten Vorgängers, viele Verbesserungen in Sachen Bedienung und als Krönung den genialen ”Session”-Modus. Dass das Spielen mit virtuellen Musikern so lang anhaltend Spaß machen würde, hätte ich nicht gedacht: Die Illusion einer mir zuhörenden und dynamisch auf meine Spielweise reagierenden Begleitband gelingt bemerkenswert gut!

  • Conclusion: Oliver Schultes meint: Ein Instrument spielerisch lernen – was ­ Guitar Hero und Rock Band versucht haben, setzt Rocksmith in die Tat um. Hier wird mit einer handelsüblichen Klampfe gezockt, nicht mit einem minderwertigen Ersatz! Die Entwickler arbeiten dabei mit vielen motivierenden Tricks wie dynamischer Schwierigkeit, pfiffigen Mini­spielen und einer tollen Visualisierung von Noten und Akkorden. Klasse!
