Rocksmith: How it works

Rocksmith: How it works

Why imitate what the other music games have done when you can propose would-be guitar players to learn the real thing? Rocksmith may have been available in North America for a while, but it will only hit the European shelves in September. Ubisoft sent us an explanation video to show us how it works. If you are already playing the game, let us know what you think in the comments.

Ubisoft sent me a copy of the US version to try. I haven't a notion how to play guitar but with the game, It gets you used to playing the instrument. When it actually comes to teaching you about music and chords and such it falls flat. I still don't really know anything about it all, I just keep playing songs, unlocking more venues as you go.
Also a friend tried it who is excellent at guitar already and there is no way to up the difficulty on it straight away until you play through all the career mode starting at beginner.

    Sdarts @GriftGFX: Still hate the setting. Absolutely generic. Specially when in contrast to all the other possibilities Ubisoft teased with their 2014 survey. (5 minutes ago)

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Oh no, a familiar game design mechanic that's actually pretty benign in the grand scheme of things. They ruined BoTW! (lol) (1 Hour ago)
