which is the sole reason I got it on computer instead of Xbox like the previous version

  • Summary: Can't get family sharing to work with this game, which is the sole reason I got it on computer instead of Xbox like the previous version. I wanted each of my kids to be able to access this game from their computers. If I can get family sharing to work with this game, I may update my review.

Rocksmith is fun and useful but the installation and adware are a pain.

  • Summary: I have good and bad things to say about Rocksmith. I've had Rocksmith a couple of months now and it has improved my playing and its still fun to use. There are enough songs that I like with the package and I plan to buy a couple more in the future.

Good -- but REQUIRES the cable and the DLCs are pricey

Alexander K., Newegg
21 June 2014
  • Summary: Remove the cable requirement, add some smart DLC pricing options and this will get 5 stars. Stop expecting folks to spend $200 to get all DLCs, which are non-transferable. Suitable for children of most ages and for adults, even for adults who have played guitars before.
  • Pros: It does what it says: it teaches guitar and/or bass, it is entertaining and educational. Most exercises are set up well and will truly improve technique. Pleasantly innovative and well thought out. Great visuals, good sound quality with a suitable instrument (some passive basses are problematic).
  • Cons: Requires the cable, which this particular item does not include. Defeating the cable requires unauthorized bits of software and some trouble. The publisher is greedy and the DLCs (songs) are overpriced with no bulk buy options and "all-in" subscriptions. No way to transfer or loan the DLC to frie...

What a hassel to set up.

Katheryne Hooper, Amazon
2 May 2014
  • 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.

Great concept - needs better programming and only one account

Robert L, Amazon
11 March 2014
  • Summary: PC Version Review: I will start off by saying that I actually love how it is teaching me guitar quickly. I only have about 4 hours on it and I can play three songs well (at my level), and already have learned about 10 chords.

Great but FLAWED product

Lisa Kerr, Amazon
11 March 2014
  • Summary: Coming back to guitar after 20 years of life stuff. I was pretty good before, played in some informal groups. Bought the 2014 edition after practicing for about a year, in an effort to put more variety and motivation in my practice.

Not as good as the original

Birdie's Dad, Amazon
29 January 2014
  • Summary: Although I like the ability to slow down a song a play portions to learn a song, I like the way you progressed through the original game. I wish they kept that aspect and just added to it.
