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.

yes, the game is exactly what you expect.

in case anybody is wondering, you CAN play guitar hero instruments (drums, guitar, mic) with this game. in the GHWT drumset, the orange cymbal doubles as the blue pad on the RB drums. they all work perfectly.

Other people have and will write thorough reviews so I won't.
The basic gameplay is very similar to any other Rock Band so if you like Rock Band and the Beatles you'll like this game.
It's similar except for the three microphones. The harmonies are really cool. This is a great addition to the game.
There are some other differences that I thought were worth talking about. First, the difficulty scale has an easier entry point than the other games. On RB2 I play guitar well on medium and very poorly on hard. For the Beatles, the low end of the scale is much easier. I've been playing very well on hard. By the time you get to the hard end of the scale things have balanced out and I fail on hard which is normal. This is much closer to the scale of RB2.
I think that's good for two reasons. First a lot of people who haven't played Rock Band will want to try this game. They will be able to have fun pretty much from the word go. More importantly, this game can use three microphones. If you're going to sing and play an instrument at the same time you'll be glad some songs are easier. Playing a fake guitar and singing at the same time can be hard.
Have fun playing.

Tech Note for Wii:
Some USB combinations don't work for the extra microphones. I don't know why.
I couldn't find anything in the manual about how to hook up three mics so I used a standard PC USB hub which worked without a hitch.

I fully expected The Beatles Rock Band to be my favorite game of this type based on musical consistency alone. I didn't expect the game to be the mostly beautifully rendered, artistically intricate game I've ever played on any platform, ever. It would have been easy to just replace the regular Rock Band characters with Beatles. However, everything is different. There are literally completely different animations on almost every song. I agree with the previous review that I screwed up riffs being mesmerized by what was happening on the screen. I was skeptical that the game would be able to separate vocal, guitar, and drum tracks on these recordings, some of which are almost 50 years old, but this is done seamlessly. The sound quality is great, bright and crisp without sounding 'enhanced.' I can't believe, with the level of intensity and anticipation I've had in waiting for this game for the last year, that it actually meets and exceeds my expectations.

I purchased this for my daughter's 13th birtday. She has been a Beatles fan for years and this was on the top of her birtday list. The game is excellent she plays it all the time. The music is great and there are many choices which makes the game challenging. She can play by herself or with the family. The only thing that I will say is that I did not know that you had to have the guitar in order to play (or at least one instrument) I thought that you could play with the wii remote until instruments were purchased. (maybe I just misunderstood) However when we went to play the game for the first time we reaslized that it will not work without an instrument so we had to go out and buy that also. If you give as a gift make sure to include an instrument (which can be an expensive gift when combined with the game) or make sure the person already has at least one. The good thing is that you can use guitar hero or generic wii instruments and do not have to purchase rockband instruments. We found a guitar hero guitar on sale and it works perfect! Highly recommend this game to any beatles fan!

...way too short. I was able to breeze through this on medium within 2 hours. I'm glad I thought to rent this first before buying it. If the price was $[...] cheaper, it would've been a must-have. I can't see paying $[...] for a Wii game (and I can't believe others shelling out more for the instrument bundles!) with no extras. (You will be able to download full albums in a price of course!)
I thought the production quality was excellent. I loved the cut scenes and animated performances. I only wish that it incorporated more of GUITAR HERO's playability/game mechanics. Rock Band's "medium" is too easy, yet their "hard" is too hard if that makes sense.
This is a game that I will definitely buy down the road if the price is right or if I found it used cheap enough. I would definitely tell a person to rent it before buying it unless you are a die-hard Beatles' fan.

When it has came down to classic rock music, nobody has ranked as higher than The Beatles. yet, even with the fact that it has been nearly 40 years since the Fab Four broke up, and went their seperate ways, their music has still been one of the deepest cornerstones of pop culture you could even imagine. While it is so sad that John Lennon and George Harrison aren't here to celebrate the groups' catalog re-releases, the feeling of John, Paul, George, and Ringo have reached a whole new era of fans that still remains as timeless as ever. Now, that has also reached the field of video games as well, with the help of Rock Band. It has been a big gamble to bring the music and iconic influence of The Beatles to turn them into modern day video game icons, to a generation that chooses to get their music through MP3's, rather than the full-length records from start to finish. Well, can The Beatles rock out loud again? Well, they are still the eggman, they honestly the walrus.

The Beatles: Rock Band brings in a new generation of video game lovers to the influence of what has made the iconic influence of what The Beatles brought into the spotlight, is a huge treat for video game lovers and hard core fans of what made The Beatles stand out, even 45 years after they made their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. The graphics are really amazing, and range from the simplicity of the rooftops of their Apple Records label, to the spotlight of the old Mets' Shea Stadium heart and soul. The gameplay is addictive for hard core Beatles fans, as they play their way through The Beatles' biggest songs including She Loves You, Get Back, I Wanna Hold Your Hand, as well as I Am The Walrus, as well as other surprises like Dig A Pony, and Tax Man.
