Summary: It drives me absolutely insane the way it progresses. It makes it nearly impossible for me to learn, but i learn different than most. I prefer to know the entire song in full slow then speed up. Not learn it at 10% then 20% then 30% oh wait missed one, down the 20% of the notes. it adds and subtracts notes as it roles and it really messes me up. Give me a tab sheet and i'm good to go. Put me on here and i mess it up royally.
Summary: In looking through the reviews here, I have to agree that there seems to be some fake reviews and padding. How many grandparents/parents could possibly be reviewing this and how can they give a review for something they haven't played?! So, here's a real review. I am a total beginner and I've played the game almost every day (except when my fingers hurt) for about four weeks. But first a tip: turn off voice commands (under options).
Summary: I rated this game 5 stars, but this rating is for the guitar that came bundled with the game...I seem to get a lot of questions about it, so yeah, here ya go.... If you're going to buy the Guitar Bundle, I would suggest that you just get the Epiphone Les Paul Special II on a seperate order. It's essentially the same guitar, but it has two humbuckers and a bridge you can adjust the intonation on, and it would only cost you about 10-25 extra depending on where you shop.
Summary: I feel this game goes from beginner to expert instantly. I went from being able to keep up with some of the songs to WTH?!?!?! It was like going from walking for the first time to running hurdles! Too much too quick.
Summary: This is a fine product, but there are not enough different songs to play. It would be better if the basic package has a broader set of music. Most of the music is hard rock, which anyone can get tired of quickly. Other than that, this is worth buying and not paying for a formal lesson if you're unsure about the instrument over the long-term.
Summary: I'm not so sure about this teaching someone how to play guitar. But if you already know how to play it is a bit frustrating at the beginning. It's easier to read than Rock Band's Pro mode though.
Summary: Bought this for my son. He really enjoyed it until the guitar broke. He had it for only a couple of weeks. We returned it with no problems because amazon is awesome. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Picked up a fender guitar, strap, picks, a carrying case and the game with the wire all for the same price as the bundle. The fender guitar is soooo much better then the guitar that comes with the game. My son was always tuning the guitar after every song.
Rocksmith is just a game. Buy Bandfuse if you really want to learn how to play a guitar

Summary: RS2K14 continues been just a game. Even if you follow the 60 days program, you will find yourself unable to play songs out iof the game. Sound is still very sharp, and sometimes it is annoying. New menu is tricky, and there are things I really missed, like the sort of career mode they had in RS1, as well as the crowd that used to be in the background. New games and session mode are the only new things that I can say are useful in this new game.
It's was exciting up to the point of trying to play it... (Left-Handed)

Summary: Very solid product, and very well made. Very unforgiving for left handed people tho.... it is virtually impossible to try to play how I use to play my guitar hero controller. The lack of a Special edition for people like us in the USA. (I've seen a left handed version for sale in the Europe amazon) Makes me a sad panda.
