First, of course, the music. We have always loved the Beatles and playing through this game just reminds us how amazing these guys were as musicians. There's the "outliers" theory that they had amassed 10,000 hours of playing time with their high intensity early years, which speaks to their superb ability to just pick up and run on any stage. Whatever it was, their harmonies are superb, their rhythms are great fun. Bob (my musician boyfriend) commented that playing along with the songs was great. Often we have to force ourselves to play through a song on other games (even songs we like) because the coded buttons just aren't enjoyable, the coders get the rhythm a bit off. Here I was dancing along while I played guitar or sang.
There are 8 chapters / venues, from the Cavern up through the Apple roof-top. There are three Abbey Road studio chapters. You might think that's boring. However, it was *superb*. They might start a song in the studio, but then the visuals go off to a CUSTOM TAILORED TO THAT SONG video! The Yellow Submarine song is underwater. The Sgt Pepper's song is in the gazebo complete with 1800s cut-out people! The flower sequences are amazing. Usually in music games I ignore the backgrounds. Here I would miss notes because I was swept away by the background graphics! Whoever did these art collaborations needs to be given a bottle of Champagne. Maybe two. They were incredibly beautiful and a sheer perfect tie-in with the songs many times. I would gladly watch someone else play so I could watch the visuals.Read more ›
Fantastic game. Even the transition screens between songs have been lovingly crafted. Every inch of the game is very well thought out.
Make sure to get MULTIPLE MICROPHONES! The singing include three part harmonies that are very fun, we spent the first few hours of the game just singing. If you can still find it, I recommend buying the "Lips two microphone bundle," as it costs the same as the single packaged Xbox 360 wireless mic (and it includes TWO of that same mic--as well as the LIPS karaoke game.)
You know how most music games have three, maybe four songs that you LOVE to play? Well, EVERY song in this game is like that. It's magical.
We played last night as soon as the package arrived and got to the first Abbey Road session - I'm looking forward to the rest of the game and then trying out the vocal harmonies etc.
If you like the Beatles music (who doesn't?) and enjoy the challenge of Rock Band or Guitar Hero I would say go ahead and get this game...you will not be disappointed. Now where's my old copy of Sgt Pepper??!
The gameplay is awesome, the graphics are great and I think the game captures the essence of Beatlemania. There are a few missing features from the other incarnations of the Rock Band series (like you can only change timing lag for one instrument during a session, so if the guitar player fixes the lag for himself, it may be off for the preferences of the drummer, with no way to fix it. If the timing is off for one player, it can amount to a LOT of missed notes.)
The main disappointment comes with there only being 45 songs, and therefore only about 2-3 hours of truly unique gameplay (sure, you can change the difficulty, but you can really only play a song so many time before it gets predictable and boring). I understand that getting the rights to those 45 songs was probably difficult and extremely expensive for the developers; however I feel like the game being released (software-only) at $60 is a LOT to ask for 45 songs. What is equally frustrating is that they plan to release future albums via downloadable content... for a price. It just seems a bit shady to me. I don't want to complain too much, because I should be glad that they are at least releasing downloadable content, rather than just leaving us high and dry. It would be nice if at least a few of the to-be-released songs would be free.
The songs included with the game are awesome; however there are many (MANY) hits missing.Read more ›
