Probably the best thing in the world to help you become a pro at playing the guitar, so helpful, tons of tips and tricks, and lots of songs to play! And.....MUCH cheaper than a guitar teacher! 10/10

In short I'd say this game is a poor tool for learning to play but worth picking up if you can get in on sale and can also get an inpuit without purchasing the unneccasary cable.

I picked Rocksmith up from Humble just to try it out of curiosity, I've played for about 10 years or so with various bands but I struggle with the game. I find the layout so needlessly confusing I spend 99% of my effort trying to figure out what it wants me to play. Honestly a decent tab is so much easier to follow for me personally.

Also the audio quality isn't great and the calibration can be hit and miss. At times it lags like hell and just ignores input which makes it unpolayble at times. The menus are fiddly and non skippable intro bugs me.

I'd reccomend a tutor > various youtube channels > online resources > rocksmith in that order for someone looking to learn, but for the right person I'm sure it could be a decent supplement to other lessons.

If you like Guitar Hero and you at least have a guitar then you should buy this game without even thinking of it.I don't think there is another game like this so you don't really have another choice.Though if you don't want to play the guitar then there is no reason to buy this game at all!

I think that it's great tool for learning how to play guitar, but it has one huge problem - Real Tone Cable. It's probably worst guitar cable I've ever used. I used 2 different ones and both of them caused buzzing and overall low quality sound, not only in Rocksmith but also in Cubase. It's clearly made just to force people to pay extra for it. I'm ♥♥♥♥♥♥ that I have to CRACK software that I legally own just to be able to use my good old Fender Koil Kord.

If you want to learn guitar in easy and fun way this is a thing for you, there's nice variety of songs and you can get much more of them for additional $. Prices could be a bit lower, but they are not insanely high.

In order to use Rocksmith you nedd Uplay account, but you don't need to have Uplay app installed. You can also play offline, without logging to Uplay It serves mostly as DLC store and online leaderboards for various minigames.

For me it's 8/10, would be 10 if Ubisoft added native support for 3rd party cables.

TL;DR a 5/5. DO NOT WAIT.
Yes it will be on sale for the winter and summer sales - for @ $10, I regret every season I didn't purchase. I would be so much farther along in my lessons by now. The $30 I saved, is nothing compared to the comprehension of music that I could have absorbed by now...

Disclaimer: I am 'musically challenged'. I am just being introduced to most of these concepts for the first time.
That being said - this program is NOT just 'I wann learn a Nirvana song...' This program teaches you basic music theory, session jamming, structured lessons, a chord reference, and some really top-notch games.

The games are REALLY impressive. Not just rote tools for muscle memory. Each game is extracted from a classic genre, and really brings a great flavor to the practice you need.

As you progress, the game gifts you with more songs, virtual tones, virtual equipment, the list is almost endless. Additionally, the community is excellent - there is an official live stream STILL on every Thursday. Plus additional songs come out all the time.

If you have ANY interest in learning guitar - BUY THIS NOW.

It's like Guitar Hero, but with a real guitar.
It's pretty good, and will actually teach you songs. Although the multiplayer being constricted to local only is annoying, meeting up with friends to jam is a fun experience. New songs get added to the game very regularly.

I'd reccomend it if you either want a hard, realistic version of guitar hero, or want an easy and fun way to learn songs. (I would not, however, reccomend making this your only method of learning songs.)

Learning guitar can be incredibly hard.

One of the hardest parts is figuring out why does it say miss when I play it right.

Awesome game.. I really love it and play it often for a couple years now.. i have over 1000 hours playing and I have noticed a difference in my playing. Learing songs is cool and a good motivator to play but the session mode will make you a better guitarist. Something else that I dont see commented about the game and for me a perfect reason to buy the gaem if nothing else is the AUTHENTIC TONES. you can just select the tone from a song you like and your guitar sounds just like the guitar in your favorite song.. You can also create tones with sound from just about any guitar equiptment out there. The cost of just a decent amp is alot more than this game, and this game offeres you LOTS of amp and pre amp options, with pedals. soo much to play with. I have not p[ayed a game more than this in my life and im 39.

If you have a guitar, and ever wondered how hard it is to play it, give this game a try.

It's hard, and takes a lot of patience, but you learn real guitar skills, play real songs, and it gives you this great feeling that comes with improving yourself.

Amazing game to add to your guitar practice routine. I wouldn't recommend relying solely on Rocksmith to further your guitar playing, but if used in addition to normal practice, it's a great tool to either introduce the basic fundamentals to beginners, polish up some skills for more intermediate players or just to have some fun and learn some songs. Learning songs is very easy as you can slow down the songs or simplify them until you're comfortable enough to move up in difficulty/ speed. The ever-expanding library of available songs to add to your playlist is huge and you'll definitely find something to suit your tastes in the vast selection of DLC songs.

The only small problem I've come across is in the dropped tunings (mainly Drop C), where the low notes don't always register.

Overall 9.5/10

Self taught for years, just from 2 hours played I have leared way more. Definately pick it up, especially because it is on sale. The cord is expensive, but worth it.
