The Beatles Rock Band - Video Game Review

Author: Roberto Sedycias

The Beatles Rock Band is a game that was well anticipated by fans of the Beatles and by gamers alike. For anyone who enjoys playing rock band games, this game is a fun experience. Even if you never grew up listening to the Beatles music, you just might become a fan of their music when you hear it like this. An easy game with lots of history built in and fun facts about The Beatles and their band.

This game is not for the intense Rock Band player. It will not have you playing amazing guitar riffs or playing a solo drum piece, but it will give you hours of easy music play mixed in with music played by The Beatles.

For hard core fans of The Beatles, this game will provide a new outlet to enjoy the band and a fun way to explore the music and pay tribute to a well loved group. In the game itself, there are ways to unlock photos of The Beatles and unlock some brief history facts the information actually comes from Sir Paul himself. With an added bonus of released videos of The Beatles, it is a real treat to be rewarded with such fantastic rewards.

With the power to jump right into quick play on or offline, you can quickly enjoy a full track list of songs minus one that is due to be let out soon. The music play is not too hard so you can really enjoy the music and not stress out too much over what you are actually doing.

There is no customization to the characters like most gamers are used to. The Beatles are simply who they are and you cannot change anything about them. The characters change as they go from their early day`s music, to their later days and the changes are true with how the band members actually looked during those periods.

The stages that you get to play on are amazing. You can play in Shea stadium and Budokan during the early days and experience some easy songs from that era. The stages look realistic with screaming teenaged fans and patrolling police officers.

In the `realistic` option the crowd is pumped up so loud that you can barely hear the lyrics over the screams. But most players will not mind because it might make them feel like they are a part of the band in a strange sort of way.

There are variations to songs played repeatedly and all songs follow audio taken from the studio. The song `I am a Walrus` offers a magic mystery tour where the band members are in animal forms and the whole appearance is pretty strange but add to the make-up of the game.

This particular game is different from other Rock Band games because you can play up to three mics at once and anyone can sing vocals instead of one person at a selected time. The guitar and drum play is fairly easy, where more of the focus is the fact that you are playing a song from The Beatles.

Fans of this game will enjoy the music and the game play itself. Harmonix takes us from reality in a studio into a dream world with limitless possibilities. Whether you`re a diehard Beatles fan or trying it out for the first time, you will become a fan after some game play in The Beatles Rock Band.
