This is the game I've been waiting for since the first guitar hero caught my eye at a wal-mart demo display. The friend i was with immediately dragged me over to try it and i got hooked! i'd been playing guitar for a few years at that point and thought to myself, "This is the game for me!" and the next couple months had me up to expert and bored. Long story short, even rockband 3's pro mode turned me off with the comically poor craftsmanship of the guitar(surprising, considering the name behind it, as I've played some sweet squire guitars; i have a pro-tone tele that plays great), and its mechanical playing style (no bends? i mean, how are you supposed to play SRV?). Many moons later, enter Rocksmith. Finally! someone did the guitar justice in a video game! This is truly a great product and i think it will be very successful. I do have some suggestions, though:
in riff repeater, the free speed could be changed to more of a 'study' tool. as is, i find it rather useless, because once you play through 100% speed, nothing else happens. it could be expanded to have start/stop controls, tracking to specific notes (step by step or however), player-set tempo, and maybe setting the mastery level as well, perhaps just not unlocking it for gigs unless you earn up to it in leveler. this would give anyone of any ability the chance to practice at a comfortable pace, see what they're up against, and not be dogged by lives and failure. once you play it through to the end, just have it loop until you quit out. something along those lines would be greatly appreciated, by me at least
I think enough has been said about it, i'll leave it by saying it could use some reworking. seems rather thrown together...
I think an option to set up a custom setlist to play through at an unlocked venue just for fun would be nice to have, rather than customizing the gigs that come up or just playing one song. I wouldn't care if it scored me or not either. this would be handy for multiplayer too i would think. i'm assuming though, because i have yet to try multiplayer
I had more ideas, but i'm getting the itch to play so i'll put some more up later, if i get around to it
Thanks again for this wonderful game, you have a great thing here
