Finally you can play video games AND learn to play a real instrument at the same time! Read our game review of Rocksmith for more details.

Rocksmith is a rhythm game similar to Guitar Hero and Rockband. However, you can only play this game with a real guitar! After you learn and mastered the songs in the game, you can take your guitar and plug it into a real amp and play to impress your friends and family!

Play with a Real Guitar!

Rocksmith works with any guitar with a 1/4" output jack. You can buy the full packaged game, including a guitar, for $179. The guitar plugs into an adapter for the game console and all your strums and plucks are picked up by the game.

The game itself is designed to teach and train beginners. Anyone can pick up and play the game immediately, the difficulty is automatically adjusted by the game to suit your level. Most beginners will begin on a single string with the traditional five frets. Eventually you can advance to chords and more!

Campaign, Mini-Game, and Amp Mode

The main mode is campaign mode, where you take your character to stardom. Amp mode is a freeplay mode where you can just jam and use various pedal and amp settings to get different sounds and effects. The mini-games included in Rocksmith are super fun and educational as they train you in the basics of the guitar with games similar to Space Invaders, Dr. Mario and more.

Stumbling Blocks

Not being able to select your difficulty level can get frustrating sometimes. If you are playing Rocksmith on a widescreen TV, the audio lag can be pretty bad. Additionally, watching the crowd and venue in campaign mode is not very exciting and doesn't really make you feel like a rockstar. Overall, however, Rocksmith does well to start players on the journey of becoming a guitarist.

Have Your Say!

This is a topic about developers The only reason I wanted to post this is because I wanted to tell people that I am creating a game called Legacy Of Swords and a book called Legacy Of Swords, this will probably be for developers to chat and ask about things, as there is no separate chat rooms.
