5.0 out of 5 stars For those of you, like me, who just needed some help... October 31, 2011
By bcgator
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've only played this on the PS3, as that's the only console I have. I'm in my mid-40s, and have tried to learn guitar off and on for the last 4 years. I've bought books, and courses, and downloaded tabs from the web, and watched videos, and while I've learned some scales and lots of chords and even memorized some guitar solos, the mechanics of playing have just never come to me. It's always frustrated me to know that despite all the chords and scales and tabs I've learned, if I were in a group around a campfire and the group asked for someone to strum guitar, I wouldn't volunteer because I just don't sound good when I play. I know that mechanically, it's just not there, and having 100 chords memorized doesn't help when you're constantly fighting with the guitar because your fingers are never in the right place and you never seem to land on the right fret. I think my big problem is that I never really learned how to play without looking down at the fretboard, and if I don't look, I'm lost. Books and videos can be read or viewed slowly, or paused, and they don't force you to learn without looking down.

I've now been playing Rocksmith for 4-5 days, and already I can tell that I've improved in this area, and the reason is so simple: you're forced to keep your eyes on the video screen, so you can't look down, and your hands have to learn how to find the 5th position (5th fret) without looking, and how to find the D string without looking, and how to slide from the 17th fret down to the 10th fret without looking. The challenge games, like shooting the cartoon birds, or practicing slides from all over the fretboard, actually work because they repeatedly force you to play without looking down.

Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been picking up (and putting down) the guitar for over 25 years now. I've tried everything: human instructors, online video lessons, self-practice using downloaded tablature...nothing has gotten me "over the hump" to the point I stuck with it and became proficient. After only about 3 hours of play, I can tell that Rocksmith is going to change all of that. It's a blast (while challenging) and I'm confident this really will keep me playing. Tired of your kids spending countless hours doing mindless button mashing? This is the "game" for you. While I've really enjoyed mashing buttons in Rock Band and Guitar Hero, I always wished I had actually been learning to play actual instruments. The drums come the closest, but the guitar is ultimately silly. Fun yes, but completely non-educational.

The ability of Rocksmith to adjust the difficulty of the song "on the fly" as you play is a revolution. I never feel completely overwhelmed, just always at the edge of my ability. It keeps you motivated without getting discouraging.

My only regret about Rocksmith is that it wasn't available 25 years ago. A crying shame, really.

Kudos to Ubisoft for a fantastic tool, and may it find all the commercial success it needs to provide DLC for many years to come. Thanks Ubisoft for creating the guitar game I've always wished for.

Worth every penny and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Productive Fun Game EVER!! October 18, 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Before getting into my review, here is an important tip:
AUDIO LAG!!! If you are experiencing audio lag, the problem is the HDMI cable. You need to run the audio from the RCA (red and white) cables through the tv, headphones, or an external stereo/surround sound system. Doing so will fix the annoying audio lag problem I'm sure most people will experience. So if you buy the game, don't forget about this tip!
UPDATE:
FROM MY EXPERIENCE, THE HDMI CABLE WASN'T THE ISSUE, THE TV WAS! I have played the game on two tvs and I have used two different cables. The first tv I played on has bad lag, and I can't seem to find any settings to fix it. However, on my tv at home, I can play with an HDMI cable without any problems. If you have lag on your tv, try turning off any special features in your tv settings. If that doesn't work, use the RCA cables as described earlier in my review.

Here is a little background about myself to support my experience playing the game:
I am a musician and I've played guitar for a number of years. However, I've always played basic rhythm guitar. I never got around to learning scales, solos, power chords, ect... only regular chords for rhythm.

Now for the game. I have only played it for about 2 hours so far, and I am really enjoying the experience. I'm a pretty busy person, and I often feel guilty when playing video games because even though I do enjoy playing, I feel like it eats up time I could use for more productive activities. Finally, I have a game that I don't have to feel bad about playing for hours on end! I am a worship leader at a church, so guitar is part of my job. Not only is this game fun to play, but I can see how it is going to help my abilities on guitar grow tremendously!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kudos to Ubisoft October 30, 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Standard Edition|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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. There's no "failing" here...Rocksmith will rewards you with the points that you rightfully earn for playing notes correctly. If you play more notes correctly, you earn more currency to unlock more portions of the game. If not, then you're not really ready for some of the other challenges...so stop punishing yourself. : Rocksmith wisely uses the point system to ensure that you're ready to tackle the challenges that you're capable of taking on.

And it's just not about playing songs.
