Summary: The Beatles: Rock Band Wireless Guitar Controller I bought this controller on october 3 and started using it around november, at first i thought it was great but now I'm glad I waited this long to review it. It has mayor problems: 1) The auto-calibration system is bad and I mean VERY BAD, for the sound to have to put the controller right in front of the speaker and make sure there's absolutely no noise in the room (volume must be high).
Don't make the same mistake - this is not a value at all

Summary: I bought this and while the game itself is a blast, here's the realization I made after reading an online PSA that did the research I should have done myself: $[...] The Beatles Rock Band Special Value Edition (Beatles Rock Band Game, original Rock Band instruments) Or: $[...] Rock Band 2 (Rock Band 2 game, newer instruments with improved design over original Rock Band instruments) $[...] The Beatles Rock Band (software only) (Amazon.com prices used.
Overpriced bundle, can't use the instruments for Guitar Hero games

Summary: This is a review for the bundle, which includes the game, one microphone, one wireless guitar, and one set of drums. The bundle is pretty expensive. You are paying $$$ more for this bundle because it includes the instruments, which granted, are very cool, well made, look like what the Beatles used, etc. If you are a Beatles fan who likes to collect all things Beatles, this would be good for you. The fit/finish of the instruments are top notch.
Summary: I found that the Beatles Rock Band game is great. I love the way it plays and how fun it is. However, I am not thrilled that none of the instruments are wireless. In addition, this Special value Edition for the WII comes with a USB hub with 4 ports to plug in the microphone and instruments. However, it does NOT come with a power supply for the hub. I discovered that other versions come with a powered hub - the XBox360 version and the more expensive version of the WII.

Summary: The guitar, drums and mike are okay. they aren't flimsy or easily breakable. The game includes many popular songs and the singing part of the game is alright albeit no more than kareoke. The guitar and drumming part is pathetic, whatever you play it sounds the same coming out the speakers. I found this game boring and repetitive. If you want to enjoy the Beatles buy the white album and sit down with your head between the speakers and really listen.
Summary: I have only recently got into music games with Guitar Hero 5. It was instantly addictive and couldnt put the guitar down. I got the guitar game bug and next i wanted Beatles rockband. I had wanted it for a while before i got it and was really looking forward to playing it. Got it home, put the game in my Wii and picked my guitar up and got ready to play some amazing classic tunes. What a dissapointment!! I felt so detached from the tune that was playing on the screen.
