Fun but flawed music game that supports a real guitar.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Power Gig: Rise of the Six String is a fairly tame "Teen"-rated music game. There's not much to worry about here aside from some lyrical references to sex, drugs, and alcohol, and some female characters with low-cut tops. The few songs in the track list that feature profanity have been censored.

  • Conclusion: change to the overall game. And actually might have been preferable since I managed to cut one of my fingers and create some ugly calluses on my left hand in my attempt to plow under the insipid story mode to unlock more of the great set list. It definitely took me a lot of practice to get the hang of the guitar. More or less. Even now I don't feel very confident that I'll hit the right notes at the right time and creates more stress than relaxation.

  • Excerpt: When the company behind the First Act series of musical instruments announced they'd be getting into the music game business, quite a few people became pretty interested in what these guys could bring to the genre - could players plug in their First Act instruments? Could we finally have a game where we are playing real bands' music on our real instruments?

  • Conclusion: Aside from the noticeable lack in presentation, this game is still really fun. With such a new idea in the way of peripherals, one could worry that the functionality may not be very strong. Thankfully, the game and controller work in harmony and after some practice you don't feel like it's the game's fault your missing notes. And the soundtrack, lifeblood of music games, is very good with artists like Eric Clapton, Dave Matthews, John Mayer, and others.

  • Excerpt: As the average skill level of Rock Band and Guitar Hero players increases, so does the demand for finger-tapping challenges that go beyond the same five candy-colored fret buttons. Enter Power Gig: Rise Of The SixString , a game that corners the market on the technically real guitar-controller—at least until the release of Rock Band ’s Fender Mustang.
