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.
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UPDATE: I found a newer version of the Stratocaster and enjoy playing it much more.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.
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!
