Summary: This is a review for the game itself and the contents within, NOT a review on how well it runs/installs/plays. After extensively playing with Rocksmith and my new guitar for about a year, I have a lot to say about Rocksmith itself that I've learned from spending a lot of time with it.
Summary: I have been playing this for a week and it is LEAPS AND BOUNDS better than its predecessor. The Kinect commands work really well, esp if you are using headphones while playing (so it can hear your voice better) and the mini games are actually a blast to play. Think Typing of the Dead fun.
Summary: Great at what it does. Sometimes the main menu lags but ive never had a problem in the songs. The song dlc mode feels like a ripoff though. Would prefer a daily free song switched in and out to keep people invested.
Summary: LAG MAKES THE GAME UNPLAYABLE. I did try (as recommended by manufacturer) HDMI for video only and a digital optical cable for the audio (through my Bose sound system). There is still too much lag to play. I visibly have to hit the string earlier so the system will recognize at the right time.

It's not a teacher in a classical term or would never make you a guitar super star like Van Halen, but its lessons and method of teaching with...
Summary: I'm sorry. I want to love this game. Input lag has ruined this experience for me. This is not just a little lag either, it's like one If you don't believe me, go look some reviews up before deciding to make a purchase.
Summary: I've messed around with guitars for more than twenty years. I'm pretty much completely self-taught, as I haven't had any formal lessons. The itch to play would come and go, and I never practiced like I should have.
Summary: Good idea for a new player, or even a more experience one. It takes the songs and puts them in a game setting similar to Guitar Hero or Rockband. For people like myself, that makes practicing more appealing and easier to get into.
Summary: I'm 46, I've been playing drums since I was 10 and piano since my mid-teens but I've always wanted to learn guitar. I came into this "game" (it's not really a game like Guitar Hero, it's more like a trainer acting like a game) knowing time signatures, structure and a good understanding of chord...
