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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Game = 5 Stars. Equipment = 2 Stars October 11, 2009
By Kevin K
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Special Value Bundle|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The game itself is a lot of fun, great graphics and easy to grow into. There are some obscure Beatles tunes included, but frankly all are fun to play and there are still quite a few of the Beatles' biggest hits on the software as well. Overall I'm very happy with the game itself.

But the drums are not good at all. Without buying covers for them to dampen the noise, they're extremely loud and 'clacky' to play. The guitar feels very cheap too, and overall based on the price of this bundle I guess I got what I paid for. I intend to replace the drums with a better kit that will be more fun to play, but in the meantime I'm stuck with the cheaper drums (according to other reviewers the RB1 drums...which I never had but assume to be true based on pics of the RB2 drum kit - this is no RB2 drum kit).

Do yourself a favor and buy a drum kit and guitar that you like, then pick up this software individually. This kit gets you in the game, but you'll quickly find yourself wanting to upgrade the equipment if you play it for any length of time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Game; No USB Hub September 13, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Special Value Bundle
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As a previous reviewer before me has stated, the box advertises a 4:1 Powered USB Hub as being included but no USB hub to be found in the box. I called EA support after going to the Rock Band support website and was informed that, yes, a USB hub was to be included. Glad to see that I'm not the only one not receiving the USB hub in the box. Will call EA back and ask for the USB hub to be sent (since it is advertised as part of the price).

The game itself is fun. This is my first music-type game and I am finding this to be pretty addicting. Will have to order the Gretsche guitar (with auto-calibration) just so I can pretend I'm a real Beatle. :-D

The game is great, but there's no USB hub, as advertised in the product description and on the box itself. It's only a $5-10 item, but then, where's my discount?

3.0 out of 5 stars Ditto Earlier Comment October 2, 2009
By BP
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Special Value Bundle
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have the same exact comments as the other reviews. I love the game, however the instruments are a major disappointment. We had already purchased RB 2 for our Wii and decided to switch over to the XBOX 360 when we went for Beatles RB because we thought the graphics would be better. We purchased the Special Value Bundle not realizing that it comes with old RB1 equipment. The whole reason why there's a different guitar included with RB2 is that it was upgraded after people complained about the RB1 guitar. I also just found out today that you can't use the cymbal expansion package with the RB1 drum kit. If I had known, like someone else mentioned, I would have bought a new version of RB2 for the XBOX 360 and then just bought the Beatles RB software. I also did not receive the USB hub in the box. I also downgraded this from 5 stars to 3 for the above reasons.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Game, Sub Par Instruments November 5, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Special Value Bundle
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As other reviewers noted, the instruments which ship with this are from the original RockBand. Under no circumstances should anyone buy this package. RockBand instruments had a very high failure rate, the guitar neck snapping and the drum pedal breaking are the two most common problems. The drum heads are also very noisy and will annoy anyone around you. I've seen several retailers trying to push the RockBand Special Edition for $99. This seems like an underhanded way to try and clear out their warehouses since the average consumer does not realize the faults inherent to the first edition instruments.

4.0 out of 5 stars Special Bundle lacking September 22, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Special Value Bundle|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Like others I had not recieved a usb hub with my copy of rockband and while it wasn't an issue since i had wireless controls and no wifi adaptor its odd to be missing something that can potientally be very important on a game featuring 2 guitars, 1 wired drum and 3 mics on a system with slots for up to 3 of the items. The drums were wired as mentioned before as well, not very satisfying but understandable none the less seeing where you're only paying on amazon [...] bucks for the drums, mic and wireless guitar. Specially with the local gamestop selling used wired guitar hero guitars for $[...] and new mics for over $[...].

Ok to the game, I can see where some complaints on other sites about 45 songs not seeming like enough have merit but the truth is every song on this game is great and covers their career very nicely while leaving future DLC the ability to be very sellable without taking away from the game. The expert mode while not as hard as other games is made to be true to the music where expert mode is where you play the music as performed. I personally couldn't think of a better way to do a Beatles game then this and any attempt to outdo it wouldn't be able to meet as much of a public appeal as this has. so 5/5 for the game but the hardware bumped it to a 4/5

Personal opinion if you can afford it get the limited edition bundle with the latest instuments made as replicas of some of the beatles' gear

2.0 out of 5 stars "Special" is just a euphemism for "overstock" March 31, 2010
By E. Lee
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Special Value Bundle|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, let's state the obvious. If you have no interest in The Beatles, you have no business buying this game (other than as a gift). That's just a matter of taste. If you're a Beatles fan, you won't be disappointed.

I'm giving this product a low rating though because, as many other reviewers have pointed out, the hardware that ships with this game is the Rock Band 1 hardware. This hardware is out of date, and practically worthless. The Rock Band 2 hardware, both the guitars and the drums, are vastly improved. For example, the RB2 drums are quieter and velocity-sensitive, while the RB2 guitar has improved fret buttons and a more durable and responsive strum bar. This is nothing more than an attempt by EA to get rid of their overstock of RB1 hardware by packaging it with the newest Rock Band game and calling it "Special Value".

To put this in perspective, I have Rock Band 1 hardware that I can't even give away for free. Believe me, I've tried. I've seen Rock Band 1 drum sets on sale at Wal-Mart for less than $8 (and they still weren't selling). Skip the Special Value, and just get the game by itself, or pick up the Rock Band 2 hardware.
