Released in 2010 in the US and then in 2012 in Europe, Rocksmith is a rhythm game produced by Ubisoft where the player directs a guitarist (or bassist) and must be able to play rock songs with the fewest false tones possible. Real guitar as a unique playing accessory. In 2013, a new album was released with the same recipe and completely new songs. Only here, for almost ten years, guitarists and guitarists have not had anything to put in their mouths … Well, not exactly because the Rocksmith community is still very active and many songs in all styles are created thanks to the “Rocksmith Workshop”. In 2022, Ubisoft breaks down the rhythm game by introducing a new formula with Rocksmith+. Upon launch, the game contains several thousand songs all arranged by chords detected by artificial intelligence, but also contains scores for guitar and bass, created by developers or the community. Many of the songs are notable for being live shows or songs adapted from popular songs. The game offers a variety of musical genres represented by artists such as Metallica, Juan Gabriel, The Alan Parsons Project, The Wiggles or Mobb Deep. Many French-speaking artists such as Jacques Dutronc, Françoise Hardy, Mass Hysteria or Les Enfoirés also attend. You will have understood that, on paper, the game has something to dream about! For you, GeekNPlay has pulled the guitar out of the cabinet to bring you the Rocksmith+ Test!
Experiment 1, 2!
The first question everyone asks: Is this new video game the best way to learn guitar? The answer is yes, provided that the songs you want to learn are in their library. Leave aside questionable hardware and catalog issues (we’ll get to that later), Rocksmith + It can be an interesting educational tool for new players. As mentioned earlier, the first opus was released with us in 2012, and the latter provided an interesting twist in the style of music video games. Guitar champ/rock band. Ten years later, Ubisoft He reviews his version and presents us with a new version. Although it comes in the form of a flashy video game, Rocksmith + It is actually a subscription service described as an educational tool designed to teach users how to play guitar or bass. Only available at the computer Currently, the title has a catalog of over 5,000 songs and each offers a live interactive panel to play. A very important point for those who know how to read the result and who want to decipher the pieces in real time. on this “Tab windows‘, the notes and chords are displayed on a virtual fretboard on screen as it plays through the song, and you must play the correct notes at the right time to score… thus learning the section. You see Rocksmith + To learn a song from the beginning, an adjustable difficulty slider ensures you don’t get caught too deep at the end. At first, the game will give you very few notes to play, but when you think you’ve mastered the basics, you’ll start increasing the difficulty slider from 0 to 100%. The single notes will eventually turn into chords, while the simple single note will materialize with more notes to play with hammerssubordinate slides And other things to master.
If you’re feeling brave – or if Rocksmith + Overplayed – The difficulty scale can be adjusted at any time, which means you can spend more time on the basics or jump right into learning the entire song. There’s also an in-depth replay section, perfect for practicing a particularly difficult single change or chord over and over again. For those who prefer to focus on specific techniques or styles, a fairly comprehensive library of in-service tutorials and exercises is also available. All of the lessons in Rocksmith + It starts with a video explaining what to focus on, and leads to a live training that players can experience. The courses are very diverse and allow beginners and amateurs to progress. The learning method is easy to understand and the game does not hesitate to compliment you when you succeed or show you how to do the exercise if you feel you are struggling. A rather encouraging point, especially since a subscription remains a good alternative for those who want to take lessons but can’t for x reasons. Please note that we don’t say that Rocksmith + It can replace a music teacher but allows for some important bases for musicians who want to learn guitar.
More than a questionable path:
Unfortunately, in addition to signing up, you’ll need a way to link your machine to the game so you can discover the notes. In theory, the service offers three ways to play: you can use a microphone or a mobile app Rocksmith + To listen to your game, or you can connect a cable Real Tone. If you have a USB audio interface, it is also possible to use this system even if Ubisoft He emphasized that compatibility of all makes and models cannot be guaranteed. From our side, the choice was made quickly: cable Real Tone which we have 201- Ali4 never worked and the app never wanted to connect to our account… To manage our guitar hearing in the game we had to use a jack and make several manipulations to reduce latency… Rocksmith + It is its own song library, which falls far short of the choice of tutorials. At first glance, the catalog of more than 5,000 songs looks like a self-service buffet. There are 16 genres to discover, although some are more prevalent than others: rock, pop, and Latin music all have over 1,000 tracks, while blues, metal, and jazz count in the hundreds.
Despite these disparities, the library is large enough for everyone to find something for themselves. Unfortunately, the catalog Rocksmith + is not as wide asUbisoft do you believe. There may be 5,000 songs to play, but every track isn’t unique and some artists have more monopoly on attention than others: there are over 100 songs from clashand more than 60 of Frank Blackbut many necessities like the Beatlesthey rolling stonesAnd the Jimi Hendrix or Nirvana, just to name a few, is simply missing… Also, a very large part of the library is made up of live renditions, which can make learning a song difficult due to frequency improvisations during concerts. For example: only addresses for fairies Which we find are living interpretations covered Frank Black and Catholicswhich means that players looking to learn titles like where is my mind You will end up with educational versions that are not fully compatible with the well-known and appreciated studio version. Ubisoft He claims that the game will eventually feature “millions” of titles, but so far, we’re far from reality. Hopefully the big “hits” won’t show up as downloadable content in a few months. Rocksmith + It is definitely incomplete and far from what was announced a few months ago, but as for the songs available, it is undeniable that the game is accurate, engaging and useful enough to teach users how to play it. If you are satisfied with the proposed songs and want to make your training more interesting, Rocksmith + Offer sufficient benefits to justify their subscription.

Rocksmith+ is a great way to get into or back into the guitar. Ubisoft signs here the impressive licensing yield, even if this new format is more than debatable… The 5,000 titles that make up the library allow everyone to find what they’re looking for, provided they aren’t too demanding. In fact, the biggest artists are currently absent from the game and others are being replaced by cover teams. However, tutorials are the strength of Rocksmith+ and will always make you want to step up. The explanations are numerous, the encouragements are there, and this new version allows those who know how to play the guitar to decode the scores more quickly. Be careful, connecting your machine to the game is very difficult. Let’s hope Ubisoft keeps the track and pampers this little newbie like it should because it must be admitted, there have been very few music games in recent years..
