Are you a video game lover and want to learn how to play guitar? Surprise!!!
Rocksmith 2014 from Ubisoft is a guitar game for xbox 360, ps3 and Pc that allows you to plug in a real electric
guitar using a “Hercules adapter” – a usb cable that connects the guitar’s output jack. Acoustic guitars can also be used but may require additional hardware. It was actually developed as a tech demo but eventually got supported by the game giant industry – Ubisoft.
The game monitors how you play and ajusts the skill level for you. You will basically start palying very basic and easy notes and over time, it increases the difficulty by introducing more notes, chords,etc. It even gives you recommendations for your improvement. Sometimes it may suggest you to slow down a particular section of the song to practice a set of chords, or it might refer you to the guitarcade which is a set of 8 bit guitar arcade games within Rocksmith 2014 (guitarcade consists games like shooting ducks, zombies,etc using your guitar).
Rocksmith 2014 has a collecetion of 55 song tracks which include “every breath you take” by police, “pour some sugar on me” by deff leppard and many more.
The game also has a series of video tutorials some of which may ask you to provide an interactive demonstration of what you have already learned. While many lessons are easily played, many are demanding.
Toluna Consumer Survey finds that 95% of the Rocksmith 2014 players improved at playing guitar.
Research Strategy Group Inc. claimed ‘it was the fastest way to learn guitar’.
A growing number of players are turning to youtube to show off their achievements.
Rocksmith could be one of the best guitar games available currently. Looks good to me.
