Conclusion: It’s always encouraging when talented forces come together in collaboration, with the express desire to forge something truly special. With a band of The Beatles quality and a developer of similar calibre, we really have to wonder if there was any doubt. The Beatles: Rock Band raises the bar to such a nosebleed-inducing height that we also wonder where the genre is going to take us to next. The rate of acceleration is phenomenal.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is “I want you to listen to something son. This is some of the greatest music ever written and something I want you to listen to and experience just like I did.

The Beatles: Rock Band is, in my opinion, as perfect as a Rock Band game can possibly get from a presentation point of view.
