Power Gig's guitar peripheral has received negative reviews. Griffin McElroy of Joystiq referred to the game as "a dumbfounding product...[centering] itself around a peripheral which is a real guitar, yet it doesn't allow the player to use the real guitar as if it were a real guitar. Instead, it settles for using a new toy to manipulate an old game -- but still manages to categorically fail at both." McElroy also criticized the quality of the guitar, stating "As far as the quality of said sound -- well, it plays about as well as you'd expect a $180 guitar to play. Which is to say, not well at all".
The game's story mode, soundtrack, and gameplay were also not well received. Abner has stated that "[even] if you grab an old instrument, you are basically just playing a cheap Guitar Hero/Rock Band knock off." Jack DeVries of IGN refers to the story as "laughably bad...a futuristic tale of a city where music it outlawed, so rebel forces have to unite and rock out to take down the evil oppressive Headliner." McElroy referred to the game's cutscenes as being of "CD-i quality". DeVries calls the soundtrack "the weakest setlist ever to grace a guitar game." Mike Splechta of GameZone stated that "The set list is yet another disappointment. It has some variety, and features music that wasn't yet included in other music games, but most of it feels out of place and isn't very fun to play."
Damn, I didn't think it would do well, but I never though it would be THIS bad!!
LOL thats the story it reminds me of Brutal Legend that game sucked. But all in all the story was made by a pot smoking hippy (like me
''Hey man FUCK the government man,lets get high and play music together FIGHT THE OPRESSION MAN.''
