We at Lazygamer loved the hell out of the first Rocksmith from Ubisoft. though the era of faux plastic instruments is long dead, Rocksmith was different; it allowed you to jack an actual guitar in to your console and actually learn how to play the thing. And even its sequel is different; instead of just more songs, it actually has more features to make your learning experience better. Session mode is one of those features.

Session mode will allow you to have your own AI band that’ll reactively play along with you, dynamically – so it’s not like some static bit of backing tracks. .you’ll be able to customise your virtual band with over 70 different Session Mode instruments.

It also comes with a mission mode, that’ll allow you to increase your shredding prowess at a comfortable rate. If you’re already a rock god, you can “jump right in and play along the entire guitar neck by zooming out.”

Session Mode is also available in multiplayer mode, so two players – one on guitar and the other on bass – can jam together with a host of digital musicians. Rocksmith 2014 is coming to Mac, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on October 25 in the UK, and November 29 locally; and if you actually want to learn how to play guitar, this is one of the easiest, and most fun ways to do just that,

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
