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: 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: Please note. This review is for the PC version of the game. I had seen great reviews of the game so bought the PC version. Boy I was in for a lesson on how to fix my PC. Instead of a plug and play game, I spent days upon days fiddling with configuration files and USB drivers. Changed PC, no play, changed windows version from xp to win 7 to win 8, no play. Finally had to give it up and return the game. The only good experience was the easy return policy of Amazon.
Summary: I've had nothing but problems with the cable to my guitar. When it does work, the sound is not in synch with the video. Overall a good idea that did not work. I do have the right hardware to run this.....the quality is just not good..
Started out well, but seriously messed up Mac OS X

Summary: While I had high hopes for this product, it didn't take me long to notice that the primary mouse button (on pad as well) no longer functioned after the installation of Steam (required for game). What happened next was hours of misery trying to uninstall Steam which autostarts every time you boot. What's more, during installation it required security/accessibility authorization, after which it locked the setting. Dealing with this made me very unhappy.
Summary: Piece of junk wouldn't even load. Bought the game only to find out it is online only internet based game and all that is on the cd I bought is the files to sign up for online access and download the game that only works inside online gaming sites. Biggest waste of $90 I really wanted to play this game and so I tried going though all troubleshoot forums and even tried installing on 3 different computers with 3 different versions of windows.
Summary: Can't connect to Steam and Ubisoft wont help either. I called the Rocksmith tech line. They said that there is nothing they will do. So, apparently, I bought a game that I can't use. Do not waste your money on a program that requires 3rd party interface/support.
