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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't make the same mistake - this is not a value at all September 16, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Special Value Bundle
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this and while the game itself is a blast, here's the realization I made after reading an online PSA that did the research I should have done myself:

$[...] The Beatles Rock Band Special Value Edition (Beatles Rock Band Game, original Rock Band instruments)

Or:

$[...] Rock Band 2 (Rock Band 2 game, newer instruments with improved design over original Rock Band instruments)
$[...] The Beatles Rock Band (software only)
(Amazon.com prices used.)

Unfortunately, overexcited at the prospect of buying the game for $[...] less than I thought I would have to, the $[...] set with special Beatles instruments being the only available edition previously, I purchased this edition.

So, don't make the same mistake that I did. Definitely get this wonderful game if you're considering it, as just about any review can tell you. But buy the Rock Band 2 set and the software alone, and you'll have better instruments and an extra game for the exact same price.

What a fool I was!

3.0 out of 5 stars Game is great... The Value Kit is a RIPP OFF! September 11, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Special Value Bundle
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I Was so excited to order & get this game & VERY DISSAPOINTED When I found out the Drum kit & the Guitar were both Rock Band 1 instuments & NOT RB2! You can't add cymbals to the RB1 drums... & Why are they even still offering these when they have the RB2 drums?? Then come to find out the GH Drums & world tour guitar work with this game... So I think I will be returning this kit.. Just stick with the game!

3.0 out of 5 stars Love the game, disappointed with the peripherals September 16, 2009
By LuiGirl
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Special Value Bundle
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The bundle came with RB1 peripherals! What's up with that! All the while I thought I'll be receiving the RB2 drum kit (I was planning on buying cymbals for it). The guitar keeps on disconnecting during the game! And that is with fresh batteries. I thought at first it was my distance that was the problem but no matter how near or far I get still disconnects during a song! I ended up buying a new guitar (made me spend more)

They should have made clear that this special value bundle comes with RB1 peripherals. It is just a bit misleading. They didn't say they'll be giving RB2, true but that is what they are selling now right? So logically the consumer will think he'll be getting the latest hardware right? I think they are just cleaning old stock that is why they came up with this.

I would not recommend this bundle. To be clear I love the game but this bundle is a disappointment. If you want a bundle just get the limited edition. Or just buy the peripherals individually or get the RB2 bundle then just get the Beatles software.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Special Value Edition's Drums are Wired! September 15, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Special Value Bundle
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I love the game, the guitar is okay, but the drums are wired and you have to plug into the back of the Wii. This was a deal breaker for me and I will be taking it back tomorrow. One week later: I took rock band Beatles back but bought the game. I bought Guitar Hero World Tour online for a lot cheaper and all of the instruments work perfectly with the Beatles game! I love it! Couldn't stop playing it with friends tonight! The extra microphones are especially fun, where one person gets to sing the melody and 2 other can sing the harmony. Incredible! We had 6 people playing at once (2 extra microphones were needed though). Definitely worth getting the game, but with Guitar Hero World Tour instruments!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Fun for the Beatlemaniac September 28, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii| Edition:Special Value Bundle|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me preface by saying I've never played any other version of Rock Band or Guitar Hero. The controllers may be better on them. Obviously, by buying the basic pack, I don't care that much about the looks or wires of the controllers, I want to play Beatles songs. The game was highly enjoyable. It took about three days of non-stop playing to get through everything "singing" only. I've only played a little with the drums and guitar and need much more practice to get through those levels. If you aren't a hard-core gamer and you just want to have fun for a reasonable amount of money and you love the Beatles, this is your game. I don't understand why someone would buy a set with instruments if they already had ones from another game anyway... maybe I just don't understand since I've never tried those games. The only problem I had was switching from one instrument to another in game without having to go all the way back to the Wii menu and that's not that big of a deal. It just seems that if the controller is plugged in when you are playing whether you are using it or not, it should recognize it and let you switch to it. No big deal.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Who doesn't love the Beatles? This game was so well thought out, including snippets of conversation from recording sessions, great graphics, and rare photos and video. We have played with friends a few times and gotten so into it that we had to keep playing until we finished the game! I do think some of the songs are easier than other Rock Band songs, but that is helping me to work up to expert level in this game and then go back to Rock Band 2 at a higher level. The best part is that there isn't a song that I don't know or don't want to play. I can't wait for downloadable content.
Now that I have seen what the Rock Band 2 instruments are like, I feel cheated having bought the Special Value Edition. There is no value in this package at all; the instruments are inferior. Although the Beatles game is wonderful, my experience has been compromised by feeling that I have been ripped off by purchasing the special value edition. The Beatles game deserves 5 stars; the special value edition deserves 1.
