Let's get down to business...
This game was certainly one of Ubisoft's best games. You require an Electric guitar/bass guitar and a Rocksmith Real Tone cable in order to play this game. But I'm very impressed with how it worked, I understand that there are so many glitches in this game, but when the game works, it is just amazing.
To simply state upsides and downsides, I'll list them:
You can learn guitar easily.
There are many songs to choose from whether it's Rocksmith 2012/2014, DLC, or CDLC.
You can get a Rocksmith 2012 import for Rocksmith 2014 giving Rocksmith 2014 a lot of Rocksmith 2012's songs.
There are lessons and arcade games to play which uses the Electric guitar, it certainly helps.
Missions to unlock songs/gear/inlays.
Layout is simple and easy, whether it's the interface or the Riff repeater.
For some, guitar is hard to play, I certainly had trouble, and that was beacuse I didn't practice the practice tracks, which I recommend you do if you're having trouble shifting/bending etc...
DLC is way too expensive, asking £2.39 for a DLC with Rythym guitar, lead guitar, bass guitar and vocals... a little too much right? YOu can find all this stuff on the internet, but I buy these DLC's to help me learn the songs.
Some CDLC may crash, and a while back Rocksmith 2014 just kept crashing when I started a song or lesson.
Setting this up with a ♥♥♥♥. took me at least five hours to fix the bugs myself and get my guitar to be picked up on this game... thanks internet too.
Missions... now, these... are ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. I've never seen a game as bad as Rocksmith 2014's mission system... you had to do it... you had to be a bunch of idiots, put a basic coding into the missions, and from like... play 1 new song, you ask for 3. From a 10 note streak, you go up to 300 after a while, and you have to get 100% mastery in songs... and yet, no matter how many times I repeat the song, you can't get 100% mastery, and once it had bugged out and not registered. And every single mission is just ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, allow for skippable missions and I'd recommend wasting time completing missions. I have to alt-f4 and launch the game to get a decent easy mission since I am only a beginner. Ubisoft idiots went too far with judging players skills, Beginner mode is what I started out as, and because of missions, they appear to think I'm pro.
About the stupid coding stuff... let's just say, there's only 2 songs on each path that the game recognizes, or at least 3. 2 CDLC's and one Rocksmith 2014 song... why not any of the others? Why not? Seriously, fix this or at least release an expansion pack that doesn't cost anything.
But I recommend this game for the guitar player who wants to learn songs and learn guitar.
But this is not for completionists, it is impossible to complete this game, it's just an unlimited game.
For ♥♥♥♥s sake ubisoft, release updates for this, not DLC.
