    I love it. I played a few key songs in quickplay, then started a story mode. And the only thing keeping me from playing more is how late it is over here and the fact I've got my sister's kids sleeping across the hall from me. The love that Harmonix put into this game shows in every decision, from the stories that go along with the photos, to the animations for just before the first song of a chapter starts.

    If you love the Beatles, get it now. If you like the Beatles, grab it. This puts GH's band-centric efforts to so much shame that if I were Aerosmith, I'd probably smash Activision's design staff over the head with a plastic guitar.

    First Impressions:

    AMAZING. If they just made the Beatles music available on DLC that would have been one thing, and it would have been amazing. But this is not just another "Rock Band". To be able to actually play AS The Beatles is very cool. The music sounds GREAT, the charicatures of John, Paul, George and Ringo are great. The settings (so far) are great.

    We played through the first 3 levels (Liverpool, Ed Sullivan and Shea Stadium). Can't wait to get to Budokan and play some songs from my favorite Beatles album (Rubber Soul).

    One thing I will say is I wish you could play your previously downloaded rock-band songs from Beatles Rock band. It would have been REALLY cool to play Weezer or Rush or Motley Crue AS the Beatles. Although I'm sure the lawyers had something to say about that.

    My only other concern is I think there may be too few songs for the price. Most Rock Band releases come with 60 or 80 songs on the initial release, the Beatles Rock band only has 45 and costs $10 more than a regular release.

    I like it. But I like Guitar Hero 5 more!

    Thus far, While My Guitar Gently Weeps has been my favorite song to play and I even nailed every note in the two solos (expert setting too)

    I think that if you're just a casual player of these sort of games, this one is ideal for you. For the expert players that have been playing every version of GH and RB, the game will probably get tiring after a while as a lot of the songs are severely overcharted.

    brand, I'm also finding that a LOT of the Bass parts on the early songs are quite repetitive and easy. And since Bass is generally my intrument of choice, I've found myself going for Guitar more than usual.

    I'm hoping this will change as we get to the later albums.

    Hmm...I guess I won't be playing bass very much then. Usually I only play it on GHWT and GH5 as that purple line denoting the open note makes it feel more like you're playing bass.

    Letting you play other songs as a name musician shows little respect for the music or the musician. If you want that feature, get into GH5.

    This is the EXACT reason I'm not getting GH5 this round. No respect.
    Be controversial

    Be outspoken

    Be outrageous

    Just don't be boring

    I got my first glimpse of GH5 last weekend and I must say, I was damn impressed.

    I finished story mode tonight. Like Sir Clinks mentioned earlier, too few songs on the sets!

    Now back to my regularly scheduled shredding on RB2 and GH5

    Played a bit more last night, up to the 2nd Abbey Road. I think the visuals in the game are amazing.

    Also, if your a Rock Band virgin, this is probably the best one to get. It's almost like "Rock Band for Beginners". I generally have an issue with some songs on Extreme, but not on this one. I can only imagine that the easy/medium levels are equally easier than the regular RB games.

    That said, the fact that I'm 1/2 way done with the story mode after only about 2 hours of gameplay doesn't bode well.

    I absolutely love this game. As a casual gamer who loves the Beatles, this is exactly what i wanted. Do I want more songs? Of course! But that's what the DLC is for.

    I had a feeling this would happen. as novel as the concept is and how fun it would be to play as the Beatles, they just dont lend themselves to the music game genre.

    My roommate wants it but I cant bring myself to spend that much on it for 1 band and half the songs or GH5 or RB2 etc.

    Plus I was never that much of a Beatles fan anyway...

    It is a great game. I love unlocking pictures and "prizes".

    I hate to say I prefer RB2 better just because of the variety on the touring options.

    Browncoat, I would rent it (an option I wish we'd thought of).
