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.

Rocksmith

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • 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)

impulsegamer
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.

Rocksmith

  • 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.

Expert Review

PSX Extreme
10 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Years ago, my Guitar Hero bundle arrived for review and after getting a feel for the game, I couldn't stomach it. Honestly, I simply didn't like it. And it's not just me, anyone else who plays the guitar agrees - this game is impossible for an actual guitar player to enjoy. The issue with Guitar Hero for people like me is that we're trying to play the actual song, down to the rhythm, as if we were using a real guitar, as opposed to striking one of five buttons with...

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.

Análise: Rocksmith 2014

Baixaki Jogos
19 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Quando fiz a análise do primeiro Rocksmith, confesso que a minha esperança era tão grande quanto o meu ceticismo. “Sim, finalmente um ‘jogo’ com uma guitarra de verdade na outra ponta do cabo... Mas será que isso funciona mesmo?”. Bem, o resultado talvez não tenha sido o mais apoteótico de todos, mas com certeza me convenceu.
