    Great fun and exceptional skill development.

    Disclaimer: I have played guitar off and on since I was an early teen (so 25+ years). My father makes high end electric guitars, is a lifelong guitarist and teaches guitar lessons. This does not ma...

    Calling Rocksmith a game is a misnomer. It is simply a guitar teaching aid, that happens to play on consoles.

    Rocksmith redefines what we call a "game." Technically you score points and can compete of sorts in a variety of minigames with the Internet at large. But that would belittle the true value of this...

    I really feel that this game had promise, but also feel that I've had the worst customer service ever for a video game.

    Out of the box, I loved this game. After playing it for a couple of months, I've had a change of heart. I was hopeful and optimistic, but now I'm frustrated and annoyed. It's angered me to the point w...

    This guitar and bass learning game definitely works, and if you're persistent, you'll be at least a passable musician.

    I've played several different musical instruments in my time, including bass guitar, but I was never able to quite get the knack of playing guitar. Now I get my chance. The tutorial system, from...

    Learn to Play the Guitar, Maybe

    Rated on February 12, 2013 by pokecharm

    I have had this game since October 2012 and have diligently played through much of it, though I'm still early on. As advertised, Rocksmith breaks down how to play a guitar with coloured strings and m...

    A beautiful and very helpful guitar playing game, the difficulty scales to you and the mini games really help you learn!

    Rated on October 18, 2011 by BigDaddyDeWitt

    A great game for REAL music and guitar lovers! The mini games are unique and good at helping you learn the fret board and skills to move around on it. I got it at a midnight release plugged my LP in a...

    Rated on October 18, 2011 by manocanada

    Ok guys this game is what I dreamt guitar hero/ rockband to become. I have played the game for 3 hours and so far i'm loving it. I would tell any beginner with a electric guitar and a 360/PS3 to pick ...

    Played until my fingers bled.....

    Rated on October 20, 2011 by blackbeltjones

    Two things first off.. If you think you are buying a "game" dont get this, you will be disappointed. Also, if you've never played guitar and think you will learn to play in two weeks this game is not ...

    I have always wanted a guitar game that taught me guitar and allowed me to play some of my favorite songs with the rest of the "band". This game delivered. Some reviews have seen complain that the ga...

    Surprisingly great guitar teaching tool with just a few flaws.

    Rated on October 21, 2011 by benty96

    So far had this game for two days and am really enjoying it. I used to play guitar years ago but had given it up so I was basically starting from scratch this time around. The songs start out slow, ...
