Rocksmith Has Arrived
Call it a game, call it a teaching aid or you could call it both. Rocksmith from Ubisoft was recently launched with much anticipation and it has come through with the goods.
Using a real guitar you plug yourself into a vast array of game modes and learning modules. Head into career mode and hit the rehearsal hall in preparation for your first gig. Do well and you may be asked to perform an encore. The game is great for non guitar players as well as seasoned pro's. You play at your level and progress as you get better. The software recognizes when you can handle more and dishes it out.
There are also some fun arcade games and all are built to make you a better guitar player. Once you start to get a little more in depth with the game you can start to play around with your own arsenal of guitars, amps and effects. These are earned as you progress through the game modes.
Rocksmith hits a new high in the guitar based gaming world. The mere fact that you are able to use a real guitar puts this game at the top of the shelf.
Its a game that you wont get bored with and can't whip through in one night. So this makes it well worth the buy and affords an endless amount of entertainment as well as a great way to polish your guitar skills.
Available for Xbox, PS3 and due out for PC later in the year.
