About
20 March 2015
  • Summary: A lot of folks laughed when Ubisoft revealed it was working on a new guitar game. The plastic instrument genre is pretty much dead, after all. Rocksmith isn't a plastic instrument game, though. Rocksmith is a real guitar game. Not like Rock Band 3 where you need a special "real" guitar.

The Rocksmith (X360) Review – Now You, Too, Can Be Like James Hetfield!

GameAxis
23 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Loading up Rocksmith and watching its introductory video brought me back to my secondary school days, where ‘jamming’ with your band had been all the rage. I had never been musically inclined enough to really be in one – the only time I had been in a band, my best friend had sacked me from it.

Not perfect, but a fun music game played with a real guitar.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Rocksmith is a music game that provides kids with a way to learn how to play guitar. Players can purchase a bundle that comes with a real guitar ($200) or they can hook up their own guitar to the game using a provided cable.

Calm Down Tom
9 October 2012
  • Summary: When asked about his name, Joe Strummer said, “With me, you either get all of the strings or none of them.” His propensity for playing every string on the guitar allowed him to strum his way to punk super-stardrom.

Rocksmith DLC

1 September 2012
  • Excerpt: So ok, we said we would do it and here it is. Rocksmith has never been one of those games/teaching tools for casual gamers.  As noted in our earlier reviews the player is the primary ingredient here. The player has to be willing to invest the time in the game.

Rocksmith Bass DLC

1 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Purchase download to the core game that was sent over by Ubisoft. Bass support is here for Rocksmith, so when our Australian readers have a chance to get the game when it releases to our Impulse Gamer Australian Brothers and Sisters of gaming, they will be able to get hold of the DLC instead of...

  • Conclusion: The songs that I didn't know weren't my favourites, but were there to teach specific styles and methods. So if you're looking for a good time, gamerscore and maybe a new hobby, you're sure to enjoy this game. Think of it like this, video gamers don't always get the woman, but women love guitar.

  • Excerpt: It can be difficult to review some games in the timeframe we normally give ourselves. While we can grasp the basic mechanics of most games quite, sometimes even reaching the end of the main body in less than a week, there are some games where this isn’t true.

  • 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...

Cheat Happens
20 January 2012
  • Excerpt: To the casual onlooker, nothing about Rocksmith , Ubisoft's guitar driven, music title, looks new or exciting. It just looks like another music game, clinging to a dying genre. Diving in though, it's anything but ordinary.
