5.0 out of 5 stars Kudos to Ubisoft November 17, 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I originally got Rocksmith last year and the original review for that follows. What's new this year, however, is the inclusion of bass which I can report works just as well...for $29.99, I downloaded the patch for the bass guitar. If you DON'T already own it, this new version includes both bass and guitar; now, I'm playing with a friend since I prefer bass anyway and he owns a Warlock guitar. I play on a Fender Jaguar short scale bass and it's an absolute blast.

For other details - here is my original review:

I own a Fender Washburn Stratocaster. I threw this disc in, hooked up the guitar, and held my breath. Would the nay-sayers of "latency / too many A/V setups" win out the day?

The answer is a resounding NO. I play a note and there is no noticeable delay whatsoever. My A/V system has become my amp (and oh, what an amp with a Pioneer Elite to back it up).

Rocksmith, first and foremost, is an INSTRUCTOR, not a social party. If you're looking for social party gaming like Rock Band, look elsewhere. Rocksmith is intended to have you learn how to play guitar, straight and simple. The game starts off with a sound check to calibrate the volume of your guitar and, more incredibly still, to TUNE YOUR GUITAR. And it's a surprisingly good tuner at that.

Once your guitar's in tune, the game eagerly throws you into the Rolling Stone's "I Can't Get No Satisfaction."

"What difficulty should I play?" you might ask. Ah, that's where the beauty of Rocksmith comes in. Rocksmith will ramp the difficulty up or down depending on how well you play. Are you nailing every single note coming down the strum highway? Well, here come a few more! Ooops, you're missing just about every single note? Rocksmith will ramp it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1st time Guitar player, and i'm EXCITED!!! January 10, 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
I'm picking up a guitar for the very first time at the age of 30 (almost 31). I have been "playing" for about a month, reading from a book, and going at my own pace. I knew "Mary had a little lamb". I ordered this game, honestly because if Slash puts his name on it, it CANNOT be crap! I just received it today, put it in the PlayStation, and hooked up my guitar, and started playing.. 4 HOURS LATER, I have to force myself to put the guitar down because i'm finally developing the coveted "guitar fingers" (calluses) ... This is such an amazing TOOL!! It is exactly what i expected, in that it is MOSTLY a teacher, sprinkled with plenty of fun. But i'm already playing hammer-ons, and palm mutes!! lol yes i just started today! The best part of this game is, it won't let you just get comfortable with one string and one chord, if it believes you can advance, it throws more strings and more chords at you during the song practices! But don't worry, if you don't pick it up right away, it will either take the chord away, or slow it down just a bit for you. Bottom line; if you are skeptical on this product, DON'T BE, it teaches you REAL guitar, and it is ALOT of fun doing it!! I'm in Afghanistan right now, but i cant wait to get home and start downloading all the downloadable content for the game!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pardon the superlatives...but this is AWESOME! October 31, 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Isn't it great when stuff just WORKS? This game seemed way too good to be true....but it works exactly like Guitar Hero, only with a real guitar! I am learning how to play bass guitar from scratch, and this game is making it very easy and a lot of fun to do so. It works with both acoustic and electric guitars that have pick-ups. The software basically treats the whole thing as a "USB Recording Device/Microphone" and I have never, ever had a mis-interpreted note yet. BUY IT!

By A. Eng
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
A disclaimer right off the bat is that I've played a reasonable amount of guitar. I'm not happy with where my skills are, but I'm certainly not new to the instrument, and maybe not the target audience of this game. I took a chance buying the game hoping that it would provide some more entertaining practice both in songs I would never learn on my own as well as technique challenges and guitarcade games. In that sense, the game has succeeded in that I find the guitarcade games relatively fun. They're clearly not the focus of the game, but they have enough polish that it provides a challenging but still entertaining way to practice finding your way around the fretboard.

Where the game fails in my opinion is in the primary goals of the game, which is learning to play complete songs. First, there's something to be questioned about throwing tablature on the screen in sync with the full song as the primary learning system. For many simple songs this works well, but as the career mode and songs become more complex, it is frustrating that the first play through seems so incredibly sink or swim. The game will bump down difficulty as advertised and is often a very functional part of the game, but I can't help but feel that it would be more efficient to allow for the player to look through a chord list for the song rather than turn a chord progression into a section of single notes.

People who have played the game will immediately look to point out the game's built in riff repeater, which allows for players to practice specific parts of songs. This is a good idea but it also brings me to my major criticism part 2. The "rocksmith suggests" interface in career mode is awful. Absolutely awful. Why? "Rocksmith suggests" is a short list of things the game thinks you should do.
