Pros: Can be used as a great learning tool for guitar playing
Cons: Needs better songs to download in the future
I just bought this game yesterday, and I played it for a few hours last night. Ive been playing guitar off and on for 11 years but havent really made much progress despite taking around 12 lessons over the years. I dream of playing in a Metallica cover band but I dont put in the time it takes to learn how to really play the guitar. My guitar has collected more dust than it got played in the last 11 years. Ive attemped to learn songs only to get frustrated and put the guitar down and walk away after 15 min of trying. So now that you know where I am musically, lets talk about this game. This game is like Guitar Hero only way better because you use a real guitar instead of a plastic piece of junk (which I broke 2 plastic GH guitars from pressing to hard on the fret buttons and strum bars). The game doesnt have allot of songs im intrested in playing but there is DLC being added so maybe there will be better songs later. The game has more realistic graphics that GH. The mini games are kinda lame as far as the graphics but they are designed to help you learn different techniques. The game has allot of great features that make it fun to play as well as a great learning tool. I didnt like paying $80 for it but it does include a special cord that you must have to play. I have allot of games that i really like and this one instantly jumped to the front of the list. Buy this game, Its worth every penny!!!
