"A must for any Beatles fan!"
5 stars"

Just when you thought that music games couldn't get any better after Rockband 2, Harmonix drops a bomb: Beatles Rockband

Its so great (if you like the beatles) the setlist spans their career with a great variety of songs and the gameplay is super fun!

A must for all music & Beatles fans. This doesn't disappoint. Love the songs esp Yellow Submarine.

"What Beatles will you be?"
5 stars"

“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 Rock/Psychede­lic Pop

"Amazing Presentation"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Presentation ,Gameplay are amazing puts GH Metallica to shame. The Beatles elements do not feel tacked onto an existing game. The dreamscape work is amzing

My only gripe is the number of tracks Well done harmonix

Cant wait for Rockband 3 in 2010

"The Beatles live on... as pixels"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The Beatles finally get their own video game. A must for any Beatle fan. A great game to get out wihen a few mates come over – plus you can have 3 people on the mic now!

Description

The world's leading music game meets the greatest band in history. The Beatles: Rock Band gives fans what they've been waiting for: a chance to experience the Beatles' legendary story from the inside. You won't just watch and listen as The Beatles make rock history, create landmark records and conquer the world-for the first time, you'll be part of the band. The Beatles software is compatible with Rock Band and Guitar Hero instruments as well as third party microphones including SingStar and Lips.

The Game
Join John, Paul, George and Ringo on-stage at legendary shows, behind closed doors in the recording studio, and in dreamscapes that bring their psychedelic imagery to life. The acclaimed Rock Band elements of interactive play and full-band capacity are here, but with brand-new additions. This will be the first music game to offer harmonies, challenging you to recreate The Beatles’ vocal blend. There are custom-built models of the instruments that the helped to make iconic; audio straight from the masters; and graphics that take you on a magical tour through the key moments in Beatles history. Produced with the full cooperation of The Beatles and Apple Corps, the game is packed with fab extras. Master the songs to hear rare audio and view unseen photos from the archive.
