I only have a little time with this game, because I bought 2014 first and only now got this one for the songs it has. So keep that in mind when you read this:
Compared to Rocksmith 2014, this is an absolutely horrible, god awful game. The main part of it is OK, or as good as Rocksmith ever gets in any version (which can be really quite good), but the training mechanics are incredibly awful, my first impression was "This has to be the worst possible way to learn a song anyone could think of". The Free Speed function for example, you miss one note, it rewinds to that note, and expects you to play it and instantly carry on with the song right from there. Pray that you never miss the middle note on a tricky triol phrase for example...
Especially if you're a beginner, I beg of you that you only, ONLY consider getting this if you also get Rocksmith 2014 and the song import tool, so that you can play the songs of this game in 2014 version, which is better in every conceivable way, and actually works quite well as a learning tool. Otherwise just ignore this game completely, it might even hurt you more than help you.
