Digital Spy (Nov 11, 2013)
With the option to learn bass, lead and rhythm guitar out of the box, non-stop custom playlists, and lessons that are broken down into skippable parts, Rocksmith 2014 really does offer something to guitarists of all skill levels. Learning solos, nailing those chords and mastering techniques isn't easy, but Rocksmith 2014 gives users a fighting chance of leaving the garage behind and securing some gigs.

Impulse Gamer (Oct 23, 2013)
Now that things are in place and Rocksmith 2014 is an impressive showing, we can only hope that we see Ubisoft keep up with the DLC songs and expand some of the more impressive bands like Aerosmith, and Nirvana. (We do not know if these songs are on the future DLC list or not but, who would not want to play Smells Like Teen Spirit, Or Come as you are? Or Aerosmith’s Cryin….seeing more on Rocksmith 2014 from these bands would be a good thing and we all have our favorites. Ubisoft is the King of learning/game tools and from the looks of it, they may reign supreme for some time to come.

Rocksmith 2014 Edition è quanto di più vicino possa esserci ad un vero corso interattivo di chitarra, aggiungendo il fattore divertimento sin da subito. Adatto soprattutto a chi muove i primi passi verso chitarra o basso, ma anche a chi ha già visto numerosi palchi da protagonista. La nuova modalità “Sessione” arricchisce ancora di più un titolo che, allo stato attuale, è per distacco il miglior gioco musicale che abbia mai visto la luce. Non merita il top-score solo perché questo non consentirebbe margini di miglioramento (soprattutto con la correzione del delay). Consigliato a tutti gli appassionati di musica che fino a oggi non hanno voluto/potuto prendere in mano uno strumento.

Multiplayer.it (Oct 24, 2013)
Altro giro altra corsa, si usa dire. Ubisoft, però, più che un'altra corsa con la nuova edizione di Rocksmith ha fatto una vera e propria maratona, aggiungendo tante di quelle piccole novità da portare il pacchetto a configurarsi finalmente come un vero e proprio ausilio a chi voglia imbracciare per la prima volta un basso o una chitarra. I tutorial sono chiari ed esaustivi e persino chi sappia già padroneggiare uno strumento troverà di che divertirsi. Bisogna stare attenti alla connessione per domare la latenza e bisogna sempre tenere a mente che si tratta di un metodo pratico, visto che la teoria musicale non viene quasi affrontata, ma se davvero il mondo delle sei o quattro/cinque corde vi ha sempre tentato, questa volta vale proprio la pena buttarsi.

Nonostante gli interessanti miglioramenti e le novità inserite dagli sviluppatori, quindi, Rocksmith 2014 continua a non essere un gioco ma piuttosto un ottimo software didattico pensato per assistere gli aspiranti musicisti nella loro lunga marcia verso l'eccellenza. Esattamente come lo scorso anno, anche stavolta vogliamo sottolineare che questo prodotto non è stato pensato come un vero sostituto alle lezioni tradizionali, ma che fornisce comunque un buon numero di strumenti con cui confrontarsi quotidianamente per cercare di migliorare la propria tecnica.

Critical Hit (Dec 09, 2013)
The proof is in the pudding, and I'm happy to say that I went from an absolute beginner on guitar to feeling some level of mastery (on some songs, at least). It may not teach you all the guitar theory or how to read music, but it is a fantastic tool for learning and enjoying the guitar.

GamingTrend (Oct 22, 2013)
So here I sit, fingers raw from playing. Rocksmith 2014 has done something I didn’t think was possible after its predecessor failed at the same task – it has made me want to learn the guitar and bass. As I was working on other reviews I was thinking about when I’d be able to get back to practice. Listening to music on my way to work I was running the mental fretboard for the bassline. I love music, but it’s been a long time since I was in love with music. I can confirm that Rocksmith 2014 is the fastest way to learn guitar, but it is also the most fun I’ve had with music in many years.

IGN (Oct 22, 2013)
What makes Rocksmith 2014 such a great companion for any guitarist or bassist is its power to incentivise: it’s capable of sparking new passions or rekindling old ones in players of all skill levels via its successful gamification of common guitar-playing techniques. It’s smooth, flexible, always encouraging, and makes practicing a pleasure rather than a chore. Whether you’re a fretboard virgin or a would be virtuoso, Rocksmith 2014 deserves a place in your daily practice routine.

God is a Geek (Oct 22, 2013)
Whether you’re looking to learn guitar, brush up on your existing skills or looking for something to practising your current skills with, Rocksmith 2014 scratches all of the guitar-based itches you could possibly hope for. You’ll find yourself playing the same songs over and over again in an attempt to get that percentage even higher, as well as going through all of the lessons so that you can become better at the instrument that you always wanted to learn. Rocksmith 2014 isn’t a game, but it never really pretends to be one. There are gameplay element that allow it to feel at home in a party situation, but if you want to get the most out of the title, it’s something that you’ll be putting on day after day, even just for a song or two, until you’re shredding with the best of them.

Rocksmith 2014 opravuje nedostatky prvního dílu a přidává sadu skvělých nových módů, které ze hry činí funkčně skvělý a nesmírně zábavný nástroj pro výuku hraní na kytaru.

Everyeye.it (Nov 02, 2013)
Rocksmith 2014 si riconferma come un ottimo strumento didattico per imparare a studiare la chitarra, soprattutto andando a correggere e integrare quegli aspetti che nella prima versione erano carenti. Il nuovo riff repeater brilla per completezza ed è sempre accessibile, mentre i giochi arcade rendono meno noiosi gli esercizi per migliorare i fondamentali. Considerando infine l’ottimo Session Mode, davvero un’aggiunta di classe, rimane ben poco da chiedere alla serie Ubisoft, se non mantenere l'impegno per offrire una collezione di brani scaricabili varia e ben nutrita.

Gamer.no (Nov 26, 2013)
For min eigen del har eg merka ein dramatisk framgang i løpet av den siste månaden som overgår kva eg fekk til med Rocksmith frå i fjor. I tillegg har huda på huda på fingertuppane mine aldri vore tjukkar, og eg må innrømme at akkurat det gjer meg litt stolt.

XGN (Dec 06, 2013)
Toch moet dit onder het kopje 'mierenneuken' worden geplaatst. Rocksmith 2014 is een dijk van een game, voor zowel de beginner als de echte gitaarveteraan. Het vergt zeker een klein offer - in geld en in tijd - maar je krijgt hier één van de, zo niet dé beste muziek game op de markt voor terug.

Eurogamer.net (UK) (Dec 13, 2013)
Rocksmith 2014 is a towering achievement on console, sitting somewhere between instructional software and rhythm action game. The kinks of the initial release have been stomped out for this sequel and the improvement of Riff Repeater and inclusion of Session Mode prove invaluable. It's unusual to find such a niche interest release lavished with so much care and attention. PC players may be better served by more serious software such as Guitar Pro, but even there, those looking for a softer, more approachable tutor will find tremendous value in the game. Rocksmith 2014 joins that small club of video games that imbue their player with a truly transferable physical skill.

Less a party game than clever learning software, Rocksmith 2014 is a highly personalised, customisable and responsive guitar tutoring tool that improves upon the original in almost every regard.

Vandal Online (Oct 24, 2013)
En última instancia Rocksmith sirve para hacer mano, para conocer nuevas canciones y si ya sabías tocar de antes para perfeccionar tu técnica. Como decíamos al comienzo de este análisis, el gran acierto del título de Ubisoft es transformar el tedioso proceso de aprendizaje inicial en una experiencia divertida y muy recomendable. Al final del día te das cuenta de que has estado tocando una guitarra de verdad durante horas, has estudiado nuevas canciones o estilos musicales, y practicando conceptos musicales, y eso es lo realmente interesante del "método Rocksmith" ya que va más allá del videojuego como producto de entretenimiento. Así que ya sabes, si estás pensando en aprender a tocar la guitarra o el bajo, nunca hubo un sistema mejor para hacerlo.

I did not think it could be done, but Rocksmith 2014 Edition is even better than its predecessor. The original game was a fantastic teaching tool with a little bit of fun added in, and while Rocksmith 2014 Edition is once again a great guitar teaching tool, it has a whole lot more fun included this time around. This fun factor blurs the lines somewhat as it is way more enjoyable this time around, or at least it feels that way and you may not consider it a guitar-teaching tool at all, which in itself is a testament to the development crew. The biggest issue you may run into is that you may not have your own electric guitar, but buy one, rent one, or borrow one from your school or a friend, it will be worth it. For those that think Rocksmith 2014 Edition is merely just an update with new songs, grab your axe and be prepared to be blown away.

4Players.de (Oct 23, 2013)
Die Songauswahl ist breiter gefächert als im Vorläufer und deckt von ultraleicht über hammerhart bis fast unmöglich alles ab. Die Minispiele im Retro-Look, der Session-Modus, der dynamische Schwierigkeitsgrad, der nach unten allerdings weiterhin unsensibler reagiert als nach oben, die mit Videos und praktischen Übungen unterstützen Gitarrenstunden: Alles greift sehr gut ineinander. Zwar gibt es auch dieses Jahr noch Schönheitsfehler wie das zwar stark verbesserte, aber immer noch unter bestimmten Konfigurationen auftretende Lag oder den kostenpflichtigen sowie leicht unvollständigen Import der Vorgängertracks. Dennoch ist Rocksmith 2014 eine klare Empfehlung für alle, die eine Gelegenheit suchen, ihre Gitarren- bzw. Basskenntnisse mit spielerischer Leichtigkeit aufzufrischen oder auszubauen.

Gameplay (Benelux) (Nov 27, 2013)
Rocksmith 2014 toont game education op zijn best. Deze geslaagde update is een ijzersterke en flexibele manier om snel gitaarmagie uit je eelvingertoppen te schudden.

LevelUp (Dec 04, 2013)
Más que un juego, esta entrega de Rocksmith es un maestro particular que irá contigo, paso a paso y a tu ritmo para que aprendas a tocar la guitarra. Todo está diseñado y programado para que lo disfrutes, pases un buen rato y aprendas o mejores tu desempeño. Tú decides si quieres aprender a tocar la guitarra de una manera divertida con Rocksmith 2014 Edition.

Speaking as a student undoubtedly on the same level as most people who would invest in Rocksmith 2014 as guitar-learning software and not a music game they can use their own guitar with, there’s nothing about my time with the game—and my development as a guitarist through its use—that leaves me with any doubt about its efficacy.

411mania.com (Feb 24, 2014)
Did I learn how to play guitar? Well, yes, though I wouldn’t call myself a master of the instrument. Rocksmith 2014 is made for beginners who want to learn how to play at a moderate level, and it succeeds for the most part.

Gaming Age (Oct 31, 2013)
I can say that with great confidence that if you never have played the guitar and are eager to learn, you will find little else that compares to how quickly you will learn by using Rocksmith 2014. Even if you are an accomplished guitarist like myself, there are things that this game will still be able to show you that you may not have known when attempting to play your favorite songs just as they sound on the albums. The only real downer in Rocksmith 2014 that I must mention is the latency issue that still plagues the series. If you are playing on your system directly from console HDMI to TV HDMI, you will find the game unplayable without either having another sound source like a home theater or using headphones. The latency issue isn’t as bad with component, but it is still there and maybe difficult to overcome.

This isn't a game per say. There is a multiplayer mode, but this isn't a party game. Yet its ability to teach you to hear when you're playing a sour note and to have you actually playing along on a real guitar is such a rewarding experience it leaves Guitar Hero and the like in the dust. It's definitely an improvement over the first. The team have done good.

Gamereactor (Finland) (Oct 31, 2013)
Alkuperäistä Rocksmithiä arvostellessani mietin, voiko pelistä enää parantaa merkittävissä määrin. Olihan siinä melkoinen paketti kasassa: interaktiivinen, opettavainen ja hauska kitaransoittosimulaattori. Muutamilla osuvilla uudistuksilla Ubisoft tekee kokemuksesta kuitenkin vielä himpun nautittavamman. Eniten rassaamaan jää, että edellisosaan kovalla vaivalla ja rahalla hankitut biisit voi siirtää jatko-osaan vain maksua vastaan. Muuten onhan tämä piru vie hauskaa pelattavaa edelleenkin.

GameSpot (Oct 22, 2013)
These idioscyncrasies aren't enough to sour what really is a great learning tool for beginners, and a big improvement over the original game. The problems that I had with the layout of the note highway are going to be far less of an issue for those without years of tablature indoctrination, and the tutorials and song selections are good enough to teach you a lot about playing guitar. Rocksmith isn't going to be replacing the likes of a keen ear, a copy of Guitar Pro, and a good set of tabs for me, but when I think back to when I bashed out my first clumsy Green Day chords on guitar, I'd have killed for as good a teacher as this.

Game Revolution (Oct 31, 2013)
If you are looking for an educational and fun way to learn guitar, Rocksmith 2014 can definitely give you what you want. The tutorial videos have been upgraded, the Guitarcade is more badass, and the riff repeater mode is flawless. The only downside is tuning ,which can be a bit too overbearing at times. For those of you who loved the original Rocksmith setlist, you can import all of the on-disk songs from the last game for $9.99, but any DLC purchased for the original game will automatically sync to your game. Rocksmith 2014 may not have party-game appeal due to its strong focus on educating the player, but it definitely has jam session appeal.

Gamereactor (Norway) (Oct 28, 2013)
Men disse minispillene har lite med totalpakken å gjøre, og enten du er gitarist fra før av, eller en aspirerende rockestjerne, har Rocksmith noe å tilby deg. Jeg savner dog de store nyhetene. Utover Session-mode er dette først og fremst en samling med nye låter, og jeg har derfor vanskelig for å anbefale dette til folk som kjøpte det første spillet. Hvis du vurderte originalen men aldri fikk ut fingeren, er dette derimot verdt en nærmere titt. Det er et unikt konsept, som er gjennomført og underholdene. Og alle vet jo at han som kan spille gitar er det naturlige midtpunktet i ethvert sosialt lag. Dessuten får han alle damene.

Gamereactor (Denmark) (Oct 22, 2013)
Rocksmith bliver markedsført som et værktøj, der kan lære alle at spille guitar, men jeg vil ikke anbefale det til absolutte nybegyndere. Er du erfaren guitarist er det også begrænset, hvad du kan få ud af det (måske udover noget at spille til, når du sidder derhjemme). Ligger du derimod et sted mellem de to yderpoler, er der dog masser af grunde til at give Rocksmith et skud. Hver gang jeg har haft bassen fremme sammen med Rocksmith 2014, har jeg tænkt for mig selv, "nåja, det var derfor jeg synes det var sjovt", og hygget mig gevaldigt. Du skal bare være forberedt på, at det kræver en stor portion tålmodighed.
