Product Details:

Power Gig: Rise of the Six String is the next evolution of band based music games. The game introduces players to a world where music is power and heroic and villainous rockers battle for control. Each player takes on the role of one of these rockers as they attempt to unite and retake the world from the oppressive rule of the Headliner. Gameplay allows up to 3 players to take on the role of a guitarist, drummer, & singer. The game utilizes a set of revolutionary new instrument peripherals headlined by the SixString Guitar Controller. The SixString evolves guitar controllers from buttons to real strings, giving players a more authentic gameplay experience and providing the option to make the experience even more real through Power Chord mode, which integrates songs' real power chords into gameplay. The game also uses Seven45 Studios new drum controller, which will revolutionize how games play drums as well. Both of these peripherals together give players a more true-to-life, immersive, and unique music performance experience. The game also ups the authenticity factor by featuring hit master recordings of songs from major artists whose music has never before been available to play within a music game.

    This game is compatible with Guitar Hero and Rock Band guitars and drums.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Earn Your Stripes, Solo Singers! I'm the kind of player who goes on solo career mode because they want to become more skilled. If you're looking to be skilled, Power Gig is a great place to start. Sure, you may be tempted to do drums or guitar, but this game has some of the best vocal recognition I have ever seen. If you are sucking, it's because you actually are off pitch, not because the game is twitchy (I'm looking at you, Guitar Hero). It also doesn't go easy on you like Rock Band does with little forgiveness for being off pitch. Thankfully, it does not punish you for vibrato which is especially nice for older singers who love letting it ring. It does, however, score harshly so be sure to start as easy as possible and work your way up or you will not survive. And what does this translate to? The Gig will make you skilled. I mastered a few songs on Apprentice then moved on to do the same songs on Rock Band. I was able to ace them on expert! People were asking me what band I play with and actually gathered to listen to me sing. I'm not in a band, I'm just good at The Gig. I also greatly enjoy the plot and extra strategy offered by The Gig. It's actually a musical RPG set in an urban fantasy world. Choose your character based on abilities you want to use, then move on to align your energies with your band mates, unite the clans, and gain power to overthrow the evil dictator. It's an exciting change from the typical music game plots that features excellent visuals and voice acting. Now for the few downsides about this game... 1) The song selection builds very slowly. You only get new songs once you move on to a new section of the game. This can take awhile, but insures that you have mastered the previous songs which can really help later. It's possible to get bored during the early stages of the game, however. 2) Guitar and drum can be twitchy. Don't bother with the "airstriker" and "six string" peripherals. Just use normal Rock Band or Guitar hero instruments for the best effect. 3) This game is hard. Want to earn your stripes and get really good at rhythm games? Play this solo! Can't hold a tune in a bucket or have no idea what you're doing? You're going to need backup. Thankfully, this game grows exponentially easier the more players you have as the special abilities of each character stack. In effect, a full band makes The Gig much easier even though it will never be as easy as Rock Band or Band Hero. 4) The DLC shop doesn't work If you want DLC you are out of luck. If you're not big on DLC or just don't care, this won't matter at all. I'm in the latter camp so I was unaffected by this. In a nutshell, this game is a dream if you play solo and crave challenge with a nice plot or have a few friends to shave the difficulty down a little. If you're looking for an easy party game with all songs unlocked, however, you will want to look elsewhere.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from For 9 Bucks give it a chance This is yet another game that fell victim to the spoiled Rock band crowd. Seriously Kids. Give something else a chance. Yes, it was disappointing that this game did not live up to its full potential. The bundled guitar is nothing more than a rock band guitar with strings (don't waste your money on the bundle), but after all, we are still playing a rock video game. Why should anyone expect more? The track-list only consists of 20 songs, but they are all pretty decent songs. The note interface is very easy to get used to once you pick up the game it takes only seconds, and the graphics are not bad at all. So why the uproar that this game sucks? Because its not Rock band or Guitar hero. For 9 dollars pick it up and give it a try. You might like it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sells lies This game is built on the idea that you are able to play a six string guitar but its really just a rockaband or guitar hero gutar with strings on top. You again are only using the five buttons and can strum anywhere on the bottom and the only exception to being a real guitar is power chords which there are only four of.
