The Beatles: Rock Band

Video Game Generation
6 April 2011
  • Summary: Fans of the Fab Four will definitely find a lot to enjoy in Beatles Rock Band . Those of us who weren’t around for their tenure can get a virtual firsthand glimpse of just how popular and influential they were – boomers should be absolutely in heaven reminiscing. The game does a good job of covering some aspect of each phase of the Beatles development, but they left out far too many standards, even having the audacity to replace some of them with (relatively speaking)...
  • Pros: Who better for a Rock Band simulation title than the Beatles?  And the fact that you get to play as one of them?  And the painstaking accuracy, right down to the minutiae?  Awesome., Extra mics can be added to give a full band feel., You don’t have to keep playing the same songs over and over again to unlock new songs as in other Rock Band games., Unlockable extras to bring a smile to the face of any Beatles fan.
  • Cons: Too many good songs – expected songs, even classics and standards, omitted, generally in favor of lesser one (did we really need more than half of the, Let it Be, album…minus the iconic title track?), The fact that you're expected to pay for further downloadable content would be sinful in the first place, given the high price tag (particularly if you get the pack with the drums and one guitar, then go out and buy the extra guitar and bass peripherals), but the fact th...

The Beatles: Rock Band (Wii) Review

Vooks
17 October 2009
  • Excerpt: The Beatles: Rock Band superbly mixes fun, skill-based gameplay with a wonderfully accessible soundtrack to produce a high point in the ever-growing rhythm-action genre. An extremely high level of attention to detail has been applied to the production, along with the technical aspects of the game; all of these elements contribute to an overall package that truly delivers a quality experience for players of all types.

AV Club
14 September 2009
  • Excerpt: There’s only one truly disappointing aspect to The Beatles: Rock Band : Future games made around your favorite band probably won’t be half as good. If you’re part of the largest fan demographic on the planet and the four chaps from Liverpool happen to be your favorite musicians then you’re dialed in. This game is the ultimate love letter, crafted with reverence and imagination. It feels like no expense was spared.

9 September 2009
  • Summary: It has been just under two years since Rock Band ushered in the era of full-band rhythm games. Subsequent games have refined the formula, offering increased accessibility, new songs, and sharper visuals, but they all still rest on the same basic appeal: it's a lot of fun to rock out, especially with your friends.
  • Pros: Beautifully intertwines music with art design, Vocal harmonies add an exciting dimension to gameplay, Playing an instrument and singing at the same time is incredibly fun, Engenders great sense of band unity, Lots of great Beatles songs
  • Cons: Lots of great Beatles songs aren't included, No drum fills or end-of-song jam sessions

Official Nintendo Magazine
10 October 2009
  • Excerpt: When EA and developer Harmonix first announced that they were working on a version of Rock Band dedicated to The Beatles, they promised a musical experience like no other, something we'd never seen the likes of before. As it turns out, what we've ended up with is essentially Rock Band's take on the likes of Guitar Hero Metallica: a spruced-up version of the main game focused on one band instead of a variety of artists.

  • Conclusion: Harmonix has laid down the gauntlet for all future ‘tribute' band games. The Beatles: Rockband ensures a splendid time is guaranteed for all. (And of course Henry the horse dances the waltz!
  • Pros: Outstanding presentation, Gorgeous graphics, Wonderful song list, Tried and true gameplay mechanics
  • Cons: Only 45 songs, Newcomers may still feel alienated, £180 for the full band set, MUST be a Beatles fan

  • Summary: „The Beatles“ waren und sind auch heute noch eine der einflussreichsten Bands der Musikgeschichte. Im Onlinemusikportal Last FM wurden die Songs der Liverpooler Band über 180 Millionen Mal gespielt, was selbst Größen wie Michael Jackson übersteigt. Das amerikanische Musikmagazin „Billboard“ kürte die Beatles anlässlich des 50-jährigen Jubiläums des Blattes sogar zu den Chartmagneten Nummer 1.

  • Excerpt: Die Beatles sind ein Massenphänomen und noch heute haben sie Millionen von Fans weltweit. Zeitgleich mit der Veröffentlichung der 14-teiligen CD-Box, die alle Alben mit überarbeitetem Sound enthält, hat EA sich etwas ganz Besonderes ausgedacht: Eine Beatles-Edition des Rock Band-Franchises. Ob das Spiel ein Must-Have für jeden Musikliebhaber ist, erfahrt ihr unserem Review.
