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 the psychedelic imagery of the latter stage of their career to life. The acclaimed Rock Band elements of interactive play and full-band capacity are here as well, but with brand-new additions. One of these is full three-part harmonies, which challenge you to recreate The Beatles’ vocal blend — a first for any music game and facilitated by the game's support for up to three microphone controllers. In addition, the game supports custom-built controllers modeled after the actual instruments that the Fab Four played, and eventually helped to make iconic, audio straight from the masters and graphics that take you on a magical tour through the key moments in The Beatles history. Produced with the full cooperation of The Beatles and Apple Corps, the game is packed with hidden fab extras that will push you and up to five of your friends to master the songs both online and offline in order to hear rare audio and view unseen photos from the archives.

The Song List
The Beatles were one of the most prolific bands of all time, churning out memorable hit after hit and this reflected in the song list of The Beatles: Rock Band.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what was expected December 25, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Special Value Bundle
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This package is great for a first time user of rock band, but it is not what I was hoping for. The instruments are from Rock Band I, not Rock Band II. This means that the drums are not wireless, the drums and guitar are not as well designed, and you are required to use a USB hub in order to use the drums, microphone and guitar at the same time. While this may be fine if its your first set, if you have used Rock Band II you will be disappointed. You can buy Rock Band II for $160, and in my opinion that's the much better deal. I purchased this set on sale for $100 and decided to return it and buy the $160 set.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The product description leaves out this important fact. I decided to buy the Rock Band 2 bundle and purchase the Beatles game separately. I paid $50 more, but now I have better equipment and two games instead of one.

The game itself is great (I rated it 5 stars). The Special Value Edition only gets 2 stars for trying to pawn off inferior equipment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value in this Special Value Edition? September 23, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Special Value Bundle|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Originally I was going to purchase just the Beatles Rock Band software...for a family member. No, originally I was going to purchase an extra guitar for his game. One thing led to another and I found the Special Value Edition that bundles guitar, Beatles game and drum set, without all the extra cost of the group's fancy guitars. Before I was done, I had purchased a PS3 (just in case I needed to "test" the game before turning it over).
The game is way fun and the songs can be extra challenging even on the easier settings but especially on the more advanced. Graphics are as cool as ever. I'm an older guy and found that I don't relate to(can you say never heard of?) a majority of Rock Band II songs, but virtually ALL of the songs on the Beatles game are familiar and fun to play.
Here's the only problem: I think they stuck the original Stratocaster guitars, the one with the irritating clicking fret buttons, in these Special Value Editions. I don't know how to confirm this, but I know the guitar that came with my family member's game looks and plays differently. Did they have some of the old, problematic guitars lying around? Are they getting even with me for not choosing the big, more expensive Beatles box?
So Special Value Edition purchasers beware. You may be better off getting component pieces separately, or just springing for the Rock Band II package and separate Beatles software. Meanwhile, I'll be going back to the reviews to see if I can find a better guitar.
UPDATE: I found a newer version of the Stratocaster and enjoy playing it much more. One comment on this review noted that the Beatles package included Rock Band 1 controllers...wired drumset with breakable kick pedal (and of course the clicky Stratocaster). So far I've had no problems with the drumset, in spite of the cable. I'm keeping fingers crossed with the kick pedal.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Beatles Rock Band January 27, 2010

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Very fun game. I'm really not keen on video games as a rule, but I have fun playing this one. The graphics and synchronization are superb. I almost feel like the fifth Beatle!
Of course, the sound is outstanding. My children are young and have no clue about the Beatles and they LOVE the music, so I'm pretty happy about that! All in all, I highly recommend this game to anyone who loves music and video gaming. It is great fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Most fun game ever!! October 6, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Special Value Bundle|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The legendary position the Beatles have in music history definitely carries over into the production and quality of this game. My husband and I were mesmerized by the obvious attention to details and art mastery that went into all of the graphic elements. Watching the intro alone is pure entertainment! I have never been a big Guitar Hero player, and this was my first foray into the full blown Rockband phenomenon. Well, now I know what all the fuss is about. I tried all of the instrument options, plus singing, and it was a blast!! The music sound is pure Beatles, and knowing most of the words and melodies to most of their songs makes the whole experience that much more fun. It definitely makes an evening with friends a whole new experience. I'm so glad I pre-ordered this game!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sing and play with the Beatles May 27, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Special Value Bundle|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This value edition comes with the Beatles PS3 game, and the original Rock Band instruments, not the Rock Band 2 instruments. The only difference between the 1st and 2nd generation of instruments are these: 1) The guitar/bass has a different neck color and can't be used for automatically calibrating the response time. 2)The drums don't have the option of connecting the separate double or triple cymbal kit that you can buy. Other than those minor differences, I didn't notice any drawback to the older instruments. I found it much cheaper to buy the old set of instruments than a separate microphone and 2nd generation guitar/bass.

This is our first music/musical instrument video game for the Sony PS3. My youngest requested it but I was surprised at how much everyone from 14 to 58 enjoyed the game. Make's you realize why the Beatles music can span so many generations. This is a participatory game unlike many of the others for the PS3 (unless of course you're into on-line play). Highly recommended. I'm looking forward to adding to the music and maybe getting a bass for a fourth player.
