The greatest music game of all time for its presentation and authenticity of the Beatles’ career. Every. Song. Slaps. Short setlist compared to other rock band /
Music games, but Single-handedly got me seriously interested in music history and rock music in general. One for the ages.
(Also check out modding scene on 360 as almost every single Beatles’ song ever is featured in addition to many songs being multi-tracked with custom animations and dreamscapes for each individual song).

I'm not a Beatles guy. Never have been, likely never will be. So as I go through the entire series of Rock Band, I gave this one an earnest playing to see if I could finally get what all the Beatlemania is all about. The Beatles had this one opportunity to turn me over to liking their music, and they... marginally succeeded? This game doesn't play like previous Rock Band games, as you go through the setlist in a linear order rather than grinding stars and money for things. The cutscenes between chapters don't really make much sense to me, but I assume if you are into the Beatles, you'd get it. Most of the learning about the band I had came from the photos that you can unlock through getting stars in each songs, and since Beatles music makes for very easy beatmaps, clearing each song with 5 stars was a cakewalk. Songs also have their own unique setpieces and backgrounds, which is pretty neat. All in all, while I still don't really like their music, I guess playing through this has made me respect and understand the Beatles a bit more. Probably won't be listening to their music outside of this though, sorry. But if you like the Beatles, this is probably an insanely good tribute.

It's good because I like The Beatles.

The best band based Rhythm Game ever made.

Korn rock band will outsell this game
