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. From "I Want to Hold Your Hand" to "Get Back," every song in The Beatles: Rock Band comes directly from the Abbey Road master tapes. More than 40 songs are included with the game, spanning the length of The Beatles’ career, with more to follow via download at the in-game The Beatles: Rock Band Music Store for Wii, using Wii points purchased through the Wii Shop Channel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do we love it? Yeah, yeah, yeah! September 9, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Limited Edition Premium Bundle
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, I have to admit to being a huge Beatles fan. I was 15 when the Beatles first appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show and it was love at first sight. These "lads from Liverpool" with their long hair and fab British accents were the grooviest musicians we'd ever seen. Within a year a major portion of my allowance was spent on Beatles magazines and records and my bedroom wall was covered, floor to ceiling with Beatles pictures. My friends and I also developed a distinct Liverpool accent. (Were we dorks, or what?)

So when a friend of mine who lives nearby called me last week and asked if I wanted to come over and try the new Beatles Rock Band limited edition Wii game the day it came out, I was right on it. We all took the day off of work. She, two other friends and I who are all big Beatles fans from way back, met in her living room as she brought in the box containing the game, ripped it open and amid lots of jumping up and down and oohing and aahing, got everything set up. The drum set with the Beatles logo and the replica of Paul McCartney's Hofner bass are just beautiful! There's a microphone and stand included as well. I wondered why they didn't have a wireless mic, but I guess they wanted to keep it authentic to the time.

Now I've not a big Rock Band or Guitar Hero fan. I bought my Wii for the exercise games so I've only played Rock Band a few times at the homes of friends but never really got into it or expected to buy it. But this edition changed my mind - big time. This edition is more about the Beatles than it is about the game itself, at least compared to other Rock Band games I've played. I think the graphics look better on this one, almost like it was custom made for the group. For Wii characters, they did great job on all four of them.

Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Limited Edition Premium Bundle
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a review for the bundle, which includes the game, one microphone, one wireless guitar, and one set of drums.

The bundle is pretty expensive. You are paying $$$ more for this bundle because it includes the instruments, which granted, are very cool, well made, look like what the Beatles used, etc. If you are a Beatles fan who likes to collect all things Beatles, this would be good for you. The fit/finish of the instruments are top notch.

However, you can't use these instruments for the Guitar Hero games. If you don't care about that, then read no further. However, for my money, I feel this bundle is a rip off because you can't use the instruments for other games. You can purchase Guitar Hero World Tour AND the Rock Band Beatles game only, it will cost less than this bundle AND you have two games instead of only one (so you can play Beatles AND current rock songs). Unfortunately, it doesn't work the other way around. You can't buy this bundle and then pick up Guitar Hero games to play.

If you MUST have the Beatles instruments, this is what you want. If you don't care, and frankly you shouldn't because you'll need to purchase additional guitars and microphones to maximize the # of players, it would be more cost effective to buy Guitar Hero World Tour and the Beatles Rock Band game by itself, and twice as much fun to play.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Fab Four In Your Living Room September 17, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Limited Edition Premium Bundle
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Like many others who live on a budget, I waited to read and hear everything I could about this bundle. We bought Guitar Hero for the kids and let's face it the graphics don't really connect with the parents or the kids that much, there are a few good songs among a bunch of random clunkers. The kids tried it a few times and since they actually play real instruments, they found it less challenging than trying to make "real" music. So, I waited because I thought how different could this version be from the original Guitar Hero or the countless singing/Karoake games that we bought along the way--and I mean quite a few: American Idol I and II, High School Musical I and III, Disney Sing-It, etc.

Then, the reviews started trickling in. I picked up a copy of Entertainment Weekly which gave it an amazing write-up. Same thing with the New York Times. Game reviewers started saying that this could be the only game that could actually surpass the Wii Fit in terms of accessibility, design and most importantly, the content. I finally gave in and pre-ordered it thinking, well, at least this should be a best-seller by Christmas and I don't feel like hiking it countless Toy Stores and video game stores in search of it. If you're a parent like me, you remember what a pain it was to locate the Wii or a Wii Fit.

It took me less than an hour to properly set the game up. The instructions are written in a dozen languages and really don't clearly state how to put it together well. So, here are a few helpful hints. First, the drum set legs are actually inverted. So, you'll need to actually pull one leg out of the other and then set the smaller tube inside the larger one so that the plastic ring serves as a stopper inside the larger tube. Then, the legs will fit properly together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shocking truth: I've never played RockBand/Guitar Hero September 14, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Limited Edition Premium Bundle
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I own a Wii but I've never played RockBand or GuitarHero and I wasn't a Beatles fan. You ask: Which planet am I from? Well, you'll be glad to know all has changed as of last night. I am now hooked, so is my 4 y/o daughter who has somehow learnt to bop her head and toss her long hair around like a rock star when she has the bass guitar strapped on. She heard Yellow Submarine last night for the first time in her life and was already singing along like there is no tomorrow. My husband who is mostly tone deaf and has no musical sense whatsoever (sorry honey!)is also secretly going through the training sessions for the bass and drums. He thought I was asleep but oh yeah I heard him alright. I can't wait till I get home to the Beatles tonight!
