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.
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
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
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 This hardware is out of date, and practically worthless.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.

As Rock Band songs go, these are a little bit on the easy side, but if you like the Beatles, the greatest hits are all here.Published on December 14, 2012 by Dan Hancock
I was happy with the product as a whole, but the blue drum did not work and I have had to work on replacing it myself instead of with the seller. Read morePublished on September 10, 2011 by Wubbs

This sucks! I ordered this for my grandson, accidently ordered the wrong one, sent it back to get the WII. They credited me only 1/2 the amount. This is bad business. Read morePublished on January 6, 2011 by island girl
