Tons of fun!

Edward Seok, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: I had the original Rocksmith and found it pretty difficult because I'm a new guitarist. Very new. I started because of Guitar Hero and Rock Band, which lead me to this game which I felt would have been the next evolution to the guitar hero saga for me at least. This 2014 version is much better than the original and I enjoy the difficulty progression which is much more reasonable.

A lot of fun, but the songs are a little obscure

T. Richmond, Amazon
24 October 2014
  • Summary: This is a lot of fun, just be aware that a lot of the songs on this version are a little on the obscure side, but this has been a good way to learn some lead guitar phrasing (up until this point I'd largely been a 'campfire' chords player). The lag on the sounds is a bit annoying, but that is mostly because I'm too cheap to buy the device that corrects it. it doesn't effect game play though.

Bought it for XBOX.

Lynn Unsworth, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: Great! I've been learning a lot. I've been playing acoustic guitar for about 10 years and have been pretty stagnant as far as growth. So i bought a cheap ass electric (bad idea which i replaced worth a mid tier Epiphone) and went to work. I've been overall very happy. There are some areas it could be better: The cable is a little too short to reach to my couch. No Led Zeppelin, you've got to be kidding me. I had to buy songs I could stand to play.

Great game except, disk is faulty and didn't last more than few months.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
4 July 2014
  • Summary: Love the whole bundle was very happy with everything. I have played about 120 hours over the last few months. But a few weeks ago when I put the game it in the player I get "disk unreadable". I cleaned and tried repeatedly to play with no luck. All other games play so I know it is not my player. I don't understand how a game with no scratches with very little hours on it can just stop working.

Vast improvement over the Original Rocksmith

D. Garber, Amazon
2 July 2014
  • Summary: Great improvement over original. Fast / no loading screens make it almost worth it for that reason alone. The riff repeater is greatly improved. You can really tailor and customize what part of the song, how much of the song, how fast and at what 'mastery' level you want to repeat the part of the song. That's another single reason to upgrade. The arcade games have been improved, I think, too.

love this game. except the new 'guitarcade' games on this version are incredibly lame compared to the first version

Kelly Coe-hegy "kelico", Amazon
28 June 2014
  • Summary: I purchased the first version and absolutely love the game. after dealing with "lag" issues I ended up using headphones instead of the TV to get a better sense of timing for the notes. the 2014 version is awesome in almost every way. the guitarcade inside the game is kind of brutal compared to the first version. it's an eighty's style video game that is pixelated and limited on options to play. very frustrating and tiresome in a short period of time.

Good Way to learn guitar

PaulJohnson, Amazon
23 June 2014
  • Summary: 5 months later I can play just about all the chords and have learned a lot. The Rocksmith Guitar comes with it and mine is still working fine and at some point I will upgrade, but for my level and the Price it cost it works.. Very Good software and Learning package, very well thought out. Could you a better mix of Songs to Learn, lots of Heavy Metal and could use some toned down Rock songs that move a little slower for beginners..

Great game

  • Summary: This is a great game. it gets annoying to retune your guitar every single song you play. I wish you could group songs together without the need for retuning.

  • Summary: This one is WAY better than the other. And the DLC from the first one will transfer. SO that is awesome. Great interface. Made a lot of much needed changes from the last one.

Nearly Perfect

Brent Foust, Amazon
29 March 2014
  • Summary: This well polished guitar tutorial gamifies learning the guitar. It's fun, many of the songs are classics, such as "You Really Got Me" by the Kinks, and remembers your progress. Besides learning the included songs, it has a Session Mode that allows you to jam with a band than follows your style and tempo. There are also arcade games for practicing striking the correct strings, playing Chords, etc.
