Summary: Excellent game, and as a beginner, I can testify you can truly learn guitar. The problems are with the interface, as it's not quite clear how to follow through with the missions sometimes. They also need to support other controllers other than the DualShock, which needs both hands to be held. With the PSMove, or even the PS3 remote controller, you could navigate through the menus while still holding your guitar.
Rocksmith is awesome but the tuning in this version is miserable

Summary: I struggled like crazy with the tuning page! I played 2013 version quite a bit but I gave up on this one. When I only have 20 minutes to sit down and play around I don't want to spend the entire time in the tuning screen. I read a lot of tricks and tried them all without much success.
Summary: Extremely poor product! I don't know about Xbox and PlayStation versions, but PC version just won't work properly. Too many problems. I have installed it on 2 computers; one being an older PC which just makes the minimal requirements for running this software, and the newer PC with much more powerful configuration, way beyond the minimal requirements of the game. It does not work properly on either one. First, the game does not always want to start.
Summary: Young or old if you ever wanted to learn to play this is a fantastic option. It is an upgraded version to Rocksmith; which I also liked, If you want some of the song packs from the first version you have to buy it as well. At around 10 to 15 dollars its worth it. You also have to have the guitar cable at around 30 dollars. It starts to add up but if you consider what you could spend in gas to go back and forth to lessons and instructor fees.... Its a great deal.
Summary: I won't repeat what other reviewers here said about the technical problems about this version for PC and Mac. It's enough to say that it simply will not work. Period. I received mine today and after spending almost 4 hours trying to install it on both my MacBook Pro and my HP Pavilion notebook, without success, I have already applied for a return of the item and subsequent refund. While I wait for the refund, I'm still going to try the PS3 edition.
Summary: Now that I have it installed it works well. It installs 3, count'en THREE, separate programs to run this one program. You have to stumble through the installation until you finally get there. The program doesn't initially auto-start; I spent an easy hour trying to get ROCKSMITH to start. Once it was installed the program wouldn't recognize my acoustic electric guitar (see separate review) I had bought for the program. I wound up buying an electric guitar.
