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. 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.

  • Summary: rocksmith is a great learning tool for newby guitarist. my only problem with the edition I got was I very carefully checked the package to make sure it was not a digital download (ddl). when I loaded it on my computer surprise it loaded steam the ubisoft game center which then proceeded to download rocksmith for approximately 7.5 hours during which you can do nothing online (dsl).

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. I recommend it, mainly for the "Session Mode," but there are some significant bad points: (1) WHO CAME UP WITH THE VERTICAL FLOW? Like Guitar Hero. Obviously someone who has never played an actual guitar.

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. Having Rocksmith emulate many amps specifically set for the song you are playing is awesome too. I have two issues though: 1. Whoever wrote the software has never used a mouse and has no concept of software navigation. Really.

Not as good as the original

Watch Munky, 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. I also don't like the fact that you can't port your DLC songs to the new game without having to fork over another $10. That is just thievery.

Good balance

  • Summary: Good balance between fun and education. Should work a little bit more on lag. I miss the style progression of rocksmith 2012.

Misleading - Not necessarily backward compatible

Crenmor1, Amazon
28 December 2013
  • Summary: The software tells you to go to SHOP for new songs. Apparently, I can't only find african American artists for original RockSmith. I undertood that RS 14 was backwrd compatible, yet when I try to purchase the songs, I'm told that I can't because I don't have the iroginal RS. Seaching the web about the issue (because RS an Stream don't give ny information on this) I find tht even if I purchase RS, I still can't get the songs to work with RS14. OK - that sucks.

Rocksmith Fun. Ubisoft Horrible.

GuitarPlayer, Amazon
26 December 2013
  • Summary: I want to keep this short and sweet. I am a guitar player of some 15 years now and I was looking for something that would get me to play more with my busy work and college schedule. Rocksmith 2014 has done this. It is great for beginning guitarists and even for us seasoned players you can jam along with songs, learn new song, practice scales and everything in between.

BUGS BUGS BUGS! BUY it but try to relax and breath when using this software

S. Lorio "Have a nice day.", Amazon
21 December 2013
  • Summary: installed this game on a quad core i7 computer, 24GB RAM, 1GB nvidia card. runs great! problem is that the game is buggy and is annoying to use! each lesson requires the user to tune guitar before starting each lesson all within the software. The tuning part will tune your guitar to the WRONG key and then the lesson will keep saying that you suck and are hitting the wrong string/fret.
