I'll admit, I had my doubts of this game, but after I played it I totally fell in love with it. Yes, The Beatles' music isn't as fast and out of control as most bands included in music games, but there tracks are just as fun.
Harmonix has once again set the bar with music games, making another amazing game in their library. Even though all 44 tracks in the game are Beatles songs, there is a great setlist even for people who aren't huge Beatles fans and not too familiar with there music (like myself). Also lots of the tracks aren't as easy as most people are thinking, (if you can FC Helter Skelter, expert drums, BIG kudos) so even for experts this one is still gonna give you a challenge, not GH3 by all means, but still a challenge.
This, is by far one of the best achievement lists for a music game. Nothing thats going to take you 2 years to get an achievement for, but nothing thats extremely easy. A very fulfilling list indeed.
Theres no new innovations as far as guitar, bass and drums(minus the new Beatles note highway) but for vocalists there is a new vocal harmony feature which lets up to 3 singers sing together. Harmonix also included the drum trainer mode with the drum lessons and new Beatle Beats mode, both featuring achievements for completing all the beats at 100% accuracy.
The game also was released with a new set of peripherals. A new drum skin, 2 new guitars and a new bass to be exact
As true Beatle fans would know, the band quit touring in 1966, so being the music game geniuses that is Harmonix, they created Dreamscapes. The fantastical Dreamscapes are fictional places where the on-screen Beatles play while you play the track. They range from underwater places, to sunny hilltops, to the very bizarre one used for I Am The Walrus.
Beatle fan or not, this is a Must play music game that I guarantee you will love. Also, as the DLC wizards we know Harmonix as, the full Abbey Road album, along with the single track "All You Need Is Love" and albums Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and Rubber Soul are all planned DLC for The Beatles: Rock Band. So expect more Beatlemania far after the game's release
