Rocksmith surprised me with its depth and usability. The eclectic song catalog stretches from The Rolling Stones and Nirvana to Radiohead and The Pixies, and on through Sigur Rós and Muse – around 50 songs in all. Plus, there’s so much to explore; many songs even have multiple arrangements to learn, representing different lead and rhythm parts.

Rocksmith is the game real musicians, and those who always wanted to learn guitar, have been waiting for. Simply plug in any guitar, crank up your stereo, and get ready to rock. This is the most complete music game I have ever played, and with the prospects of playing real bass guitar, vocals, and drums (someday), this could turn home consoles into home studios. It’s not a perfect outing, but it’s a great place to start, and if sales are strong enough, we can expect to see an even more complete package in the sequel.
There's definitely room for improvement down the road, but Rocksmith's debut has one thing going for it above all else: it's the real deal. This ambitious guitar game delivers on its promise of intense rhythm gaming action tied to the act of actual guitar playing.
