Summary: Ive had this for 2 weeks now, and it hasn't taught me a thing. You're better off just getting lessons. I picked it up thinking it would help me learn the guitar fast, easy, and fun, like all the ads say. However, after trying it, i think all those ads are lies. This game is terrible. It doesn't help you at all. My friend who has gotten lessons and is a really good guitar player said that this is teaching you all wrong.
Make sure it's 100% as described before you keep it

Summary: Arrived with a big crack, my son was so excited to get it he didn't want to wait for me to return/exchange it. Usually their products are great! This one may have been a return they resold, but still didn't match the quality I expect.
Summary: I don't know exactly what was wrong with this Rocksmith 2014 Edition for Xbox 360 (with cable) that I bought here at Amazon.com. When we got it we were really excited to begin but excitement soon turned to frustration. After setting up our online Ubisoft user accounts which seemed much more involved than necessary we began the game. I started with my Strat and did the calibration where you strum the guitar to have the game recognize it.
Summary: After playing the game for a couple of months, I've had a change of heart. I'll leave my original review below this one, but, to summarize, I was hopeful and optimistic, but now I'm frustrated and annoyed. It's angered me to the point where I've not even opened the case for the game in a month. My first frustration came from the interface. Granted, it can be customized to reflect the strings as they are or reflect how guitar tablature works.
Summary: This review does not pertain to the rocksmith game but rather the included guitar. I was not able to use the game because the guitar was not playable out of the box and needed to be repaired. The Epiphone guitar bridge was pulled forward and bent out of the guitar on arrival. When I tried to tune the strings, the bridge would just pull out even more until I was afraid it would just come out completely.
Summary: THIS'LL REVIEW MAY ANNOY YOU BECAUSE I ORDERED THIS GAME FROM A DEALER WHO COULDN'T BE BOTHERED TO READ HIS OWN DESCIPTION OF THE GAME BECAUSE ONE ESSENTIAL PART OF THE GAME THE REAL TONE CABLE WASN'T INCLUDED UNLESS THEY DIDN'T HAVE A CLUE WHAT A REAL GUITAR LOOKED LIKE WITH OUT BUTTONS TO PRESS IM SORRY BUT NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY FORCING A PHONO LEAD LEAD IN TO THE USB PORT IN A 360 THEY JUST DON'T SEEM TO WANT TO COMPLY STUPID REALLY ALTHOUGH THE XBOX DOES MAKE A...

Summary: It sucks, big. I been playing 23 years and got it for my step son. Basically, right out of the box, it's unusable. The lag is Spaulding. Now much has been made of the improvements, and if this is an improv,met I'd hate to have seen the first incarnation if this game. Apparently, and I had no forewarning of this, you can't play it thought your television, like EVERYOTHER game ever, you need to oreder a lead, optical, not hdmi, which you need to connect to another sound...
