Well I Was iffy about buying this first but after looking at all the reviews and videos for it i decided to go out and buy this game. this is one of the best looking rock band games to date. i started playing it today and WOW its soo much fun the graphics and the game and story on it are really amazing.
I am not a fan of these fake music games, but I had to rent this one because it is the Beatles. I love it. Let me just start with that.
The care and attention to detail that went into this game proves that it was created by Beatles fans for Beatles fans. Having not much experience with the fake music games hasn't lessened my fun with it at all. I bought a fake guitar for 9.99 with the Aerosmith game bundled with it a couple of months ago, and I am now finally putting it to good use. Beginners can have fun starting out on easy level, but it won't take all that long for a newbie to be able to move up to medium difficulty for some songs. Songs are divided into categories of difficulty for playing in a sandboxey kind of way. There is also a story mode that starts you in the Cavern Club and works its way through the stages in the career of the Fab Four all the way up to their last live performance on the rooftop for Let It Be.
Archival photos can be unlocked in story mode as well as challenges and videos of the song performances. Right now, my favorite thing to do though is have my wife play the game so I can just sit back and listen to the great sounding songs and watch the background performances while she watches the little colored cues cross the screen.
If you are a Beatles fan, you must experience this game. If you are a fan of fake music games, I recommend learning what all the fuss has been over this band for the last 40 plus years. I give the game a 9 out of 10 score.
Now back to playing some more. Hey Bulldog is actually a playable song!!!
