Rockstar Guitar is imported by VN, also known as "Vini Toys", a company responsible for distributing several other dodgy plug&play wannabe gadgets, including the
Gameboy wannabe called Supervision. The guitar has 10 songs built-in, being "I don't want to miss a thing" by Aerosmith, "YMCA" by Village People, "Highway Star"
by Deep Purple, "America" and "In the Morning" by Razorlight, "This Ain't a Scene - It's an Arms Race" by Fall Out Boy, "Your Love Alone Id Not Enough" by Manic
Street Preachers, "I Want you to want me" and "Dream Police" by Cheap Tricks.. and finally "Billion Dollar Babies" by Alice Cooper.
Just like the Guitar Hero guitars this one has five accord buttons, a strum bar (obviously) and a whammy bar. Other than that there's a bit more of the obvious
buttons such as a power, enter (start) and reset button, the last one placed perfectly on the guitar so that you might accidently hit it during the game.
The guitar requires 4 AA batteries to run, and the Guitar itself is pretty solid made, and by the way says "Made by Taikee" on the back. The buttons on the guitar
however are extremely poorly made, so poor you'll have a hard time pressing the keys fast enough. The sound is a completely other chapter - it's god awful to say
For some reason the guitar only produces sound in mono and the sound and picture sometimes gets a little out of sync. The funny bit about the game is that when
you manage to get the cursor into the green part of the rockstar meter, if probably won't ever leave the green part no matter how bad you play, or even if you
To make things even worse, there's a free play mode called guitar jam.... just friggin horrible, check out the video for more info on that one. Basicly it just
lets you play any note you want at any time... what's the point? well there isn't one! Anyway if you should grow tired of listening to the built-in songs
before they drive you crazy, it's actually possible to attach an MP3 player and play any MP3. I havn't got an MP3 player though so I can't say how that
works - well it probably doesn't.
I've been wondering a little bit about what type of videogame machine this guitar, if any at all, but my guess would be the Sega Megadrive/Genesis on a chip? but
I'm most likely wrong about that.
Anyway though this guitar may be cool looking it's definately a piece of junk and the sound is just horrible, what a waste of $50, but like I didn't know that
before purchasing the Rockstar Guitar... RAWK ON!
