Power Gig: Rise of the Six String
Power Gig: Rise of the Six String is a music rhythm game similar to the Rock Band and Guitar Hero series, which uses its own unique guitar controller that can also be used as a standalone six-string guitar. The game also works with the AirStrike, a drum controller that utilizes motion sensing.
In Unite the Clans, the story mode of the game, characters belong to a rebel clan known as the RiffRiders, who play music in defiance of the tyrannical Headliner Martin Rothchild, who has banned public performances in the world of Ohm, due to its magical properties.
Power Gig: Rise of the Six Strings received mainly negative reviews, with an average score of 38%, criticized for the poor hit detection on the AirStrike, the clumsy design of the SixString guitar, and mixed reviews on its selection of song titles.
Compared to most Rock Band and Guitar Hero titles, Power Gig isn't as difficult nor time consuming, and there are no online trophies to worry about. However, there are some trophies that will require practice and skills on each of the instruments, as well as several that need friends who are just as proficient in order to unlock some co-op trophies.
Also, it should be noted that, while it's possible to play the game with the Rock Band instruments, you WILL need the official SixString Guitar and AirStrike Drumset for a couple of the trophies.
Expect roughly around 30 hours of gameplay, depending on your skills.
The first thing you'll probably want to do is work through the tutorials. Not only is it helpful for beginners, or if you're getting used to the unique Power Gig instruments, but you'll knock out a couple trophies as well.
After that, select to watch the credits from the extras menu. Once they've all scrolled, you'll unlock the Now Starring trophy.
With that out of the way, you can move onto the story portion of the game: Unite the Clans. Play this solo, in order to work towards the Liberator Of Ohm trophy, otherwise it won't unlock. This can be done on any difficulty, so feel free to stick with Easy if you want. There are a few other trophies related to the United the Clans, so be sure to check out the Power Gig Rise of the Six String trophy guide links under our Links tab.
Once the tutorials and story mode are out of the way, the remaining trophies can be mopped-up in any order. There are a few co-op related ones, some which require only two people, and others that need a full band of four. At some point, you'll need to convince your buddies to come over and help you with those. Otherwise, when you're playing alone, you can focus on the perfectionist and power chords trophies. Again, check out the trophy guides under our Links tab for details on whichever trophies you still need.
