The Beatles: Rock Band (Xbox 360, PS3, Wii) review

 

Despite me being British, and more specifically coming from a town twenty minutes from Liverpool, and despite opting to review this latest iteration of Harmonix's multi-gazillion dollar franchise, it pains me to say I've never really been a fan of The...

You have to feel truly sorry for any future artist-specific rhythm games, because it would take an enormous amount of effort to top The Beatles: Rock Band, a game very nearly bigger than Jesus.

In case you hadn't noticed, Beatlemania is back. It's been 40 years since the legendary band's last live performance, and to commemorate the anniversary all their albums have been re-released in remastered form. But even more excitingly — for...

The Beatles: Rock Band

 

Stellar presentation and vocal harmonies help make The Beatles: Rock Band something special in the world of music games.

Beautifully intertwines music with art design ; Vocal harmonies add an exciting dimension to gameplay ; Playing an instrument and singing at the same time is incredibly fun ; Engenders great sense of band unity ; Lots of great Beatles songs

Lots of great Beatles songs aren't included ; No drum fills or end-of-song jam sessions

The Beatles: Rock Band

 

Of course, there's the nice and easy cliché that if you love The Beatles and love Rock Band, then you're surely going to love this, and to an extent that is true, but there has to be a reason why. Similarly, if you don't fall into one or both or those...

Provides a greater appreciation for the music played ; Loads of memorabilia to unlock ; Much more replay value than you might initially think ; Studio chatter between songs adds to the authenticity ; Dream-scape sequences are beautiful put together ;...

Only having 1 instrument lessens the replay value and ; additional instruments and DLC rack up the price ; Several memorable songs left out ; Several staple Rock Band features removed ; Can't give the dream-scapes the attention they deserve while...

The Beatles: Rock Band is clearly a labour of love, which deserves to achieve its aim of introducing the band to a whole new audience. Even existing fans have the potential to get something new from it, as performing on a single instrument gives you a...

Rock Band developer Harmonix once stated that, unlike their former partners at Guitar Hero publisher Activision, they would not be pursuing band specific games. This put the focus solely on the Rock Band Music Store, where week after week of...

The Beatles: Rock Band (Xbox 360) Review

 

The Fab 4 come to the console front packing a huge assortment of true remasters for the first time in decades. Bringing a few twists to the game, players get to experience Rock Band and The Beatles in a new light.

When the Fab Four hit America, they set off a storm in the music industry, filling the airwaves with a new sound and Beatlemania from coast-to-coast. Generations later, gamers get a chance to relive not only the catalog of The Beatles but many of their...

Review: The Beatles: Rock Band (PS3)

 

If you're not familiar with Harmonix's work on the Guitar Hero franchise and its various branchings, here's a quick primer. Harmonix had a runaway hit with their Guitar Hero rhythm game which featured a special guitar controller, and it made Activision...

The Beatles: Rock Band

 

All you need is love (of the Beatles)

Background animations and videos are great ; A suitably reverential tribute ; Doesn't mess with the classic mixes

Menus look a bit spartan ; Some of the song choices are a bit dodgy ; Occasional dead spots for vocalists

It would be interesting to find out how many people actually use the game to its full potential on a regular basis. Not many, we’ll wager. But the extras aren't essential, and the game is Rock Band regardless of whether you have the skill, inclination,...

The Beatles: Rock Band

 

The best of both worlds combined into one fabulous package.

Perfectly blends art style with music ; Vocal Harmonies ; Six players can play at once ; The Beatles have a huge amount of great songs

Framerate issues with large numbers of players ; Lots of classic Beatles songs aren't on the default track list

That was the biggest draw for me actually. It seems like a waste to me... Guess I'll be right to hold off on getting this.
