“Wooo The Beatles Rockband” some of you might say sarcastically. But
I am here to tell you the game is actually good. I myself was never a fan of
The Beatles and only knew a few of their songs but after playing the game a few
times I found I actually quite liked them and enjoyed playing it. Before
I used the mic (not knowing the words properly and not knowing the tune =
disaster) I played the songs a few times on the guitar/bass and drums to get a
feel of the songs.
The Beatles Rockband has brought new elements to the Rockband game. Most
noticeably is the difficulty panel that appears when choosing your song so that
you're able to tell how hard the song is on what instrument. I found this
feature highly useful as when playing with new users we could choose the easier
songs on the instruments that they wanted to play. It's also useful for
clicking on the easiest song on your chosen instrument and then choosing Expert
so that people think you're really good.
To end this review, here are the instruments summed up in a few sentences
Mic – 3 people being able to sing together and “harmonize” is a
terrific idea in theory. In practice though in can sound a bit terrible so make
sure to turn the volume up! And if you're finding it difficult, you can always
go the to Harmony Trainer in the training menu!
Drums – Repetitive. They do say Ringo Starr was not the best drummer, and
he wasn't even the best in the Beatles but he can still play them!
Guitar/Bass – I've put Guitar and Bass into the same category as I find
that Bass is simpler in a way to the Guitar. Both instruments are quite fun to
play with a nice steady beat. There's nothing extreme as this is 60s
