Power Gig: Rise of the SixString Guitar Kit
Terrible in every way.
The guitar itself is being marketed as a usable musical instrument. While it does posses the necessary electronics and strings, it is practically impossible to keep in tune, rendering it useless. Using the guitar in-game is a tremendous chore, as it is unresponsive and finicky, and I found myself switching back to a Guitar Hero controller very quickly. The gameplay itself is eerily similar to Rock Revolution. The song list is made up of a few national acts and a large number of bands that most players would be hard-pressed to recognize. The good tunes are locked away. Calibration was also a severe issue with this game. I attempted to get it right for over a half hour before I gave up, and I have never had an issue like that with any other music title. Steer clear of this mess, I wish I had.
I hope someday they will include a bass(or a tuba LOL)!!!
THIS GAME LOOKS SWEET CASE ITS NOT JUST ANOTHER GUITAR HERO OR ROCK BAND GAME ITS AT LAST GOT REAL STRINGS N PLUS U CAN PLUG THE GUITAR IN TO A REAL AMP N PLAY IV BEEN WATING 4 A GAME LIKE THIS I AM GETING IT N SO SHOUD U IF U LIKE THES TYPES OF GAMES N IF U WANT TO LEARN A REAL GUITAR NOT JUST RED, GREEN, YELLOW N BLUE BUTTONS LOL
From what it looks like in previews and whatnot: You actually have to play the guitar to... well... play the guitar. In the game I mean. I'm guessing it measures the vibration to determine what note is being struck. Which would not be all too difficult as the notes we hear from an instrument are in fact those very vibrations. I'll probably get it just to see how it works. Learning guitar would certainly be a nice plus though.
THIS GAME BLOWS BIG BIG ONES SUCKS
let me frist say i was looking forward to this game real guitar (yes). that what was wrong with rockband guitar hero was the fack guitar and all the gamers who think they where guitar players because they can play maxed out (with a fake guitar). in power gig you still use only 5 colors to play not real guitar. DON"T BUY THIS IT SUCKS.
MUST BUY FOR ALL GUITAR PLAYERS
At last a game where you no longer have to press plastic but real chords!!!! Beginners can play from the beginning and actually learn how to play guitar Advance players can rampage and score big time plus challenge themselves to some difficult music Plus you can disconnect it from the X-box360/PS3 and plug it into a real amp and play to any genre you prefer
From the time I got this game it sucked, I got it as a gift because I wanted a guitar game for my PS3 system that I got recently. I opened it a little shocked that it wasn't guitar hero but I play a real guitar so I told myself it could not be that bad. Well, I was wrong. The game lags a lot, your avatar does not even look like it is playing, and when you try to use it as a real guitar, it will not stay in tune. I don't care who you are, I advise you to STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!!
well as i am an actual guitar player, i have demoed this game and the fact that u use real strings and can slide ur hand up and down the neck is realistic enuf.... however.....mu question is this......if u can use it as a real electric guitar how well would it sound #1, and #2...how well does it stay in tune....im getting the PS3 variant so hopefully after i get the chance to really play it i"ll write another review on my experience w/ it
this is awesome a real guitar even better than guitar hero
This game looks awesome!
First off, this game looks amazing, but on the video, there are colored bars under the frets, so you may not even have to play the chords, just press and strum. No matter what, i will get this, one: it sounds like fun, and 2: i need a new guitar.
