Vocals now offer three playable parts, a first for the series, including one lead and two harmonies. A built-in vocal trainer will help you get accustomed to singing each melody, as you are able to freely switch between all three parts with a press of a button. Three microphones are required to harmonize with your friends. Featured on the disc are 45 tracks, including "Back in the U.S.S.R.," "Here Comes the Sun," "I Feel Fine," "Taxman," "Octopus' Garden," "Get Back," "Day Tripper," "I Saw Her Standing There," "I Am the Walrus," and "I Want to Hold Your Hand."

It had to happen at eventually, the Beatles have made it onto a video game. It has been said that if you don't like the Beatles you don't like music. There are millions upon millions of Beatles fans out there in the gaming world, but it would be an understatement if I was to say this is a game for Beatles fans alone. Who doesn't like The Beatles? Unless you have been living in a cave for the last half century you have probably heard of them and would probably recognize them as they were at the height of their fame, and will certainly know more than one of their songs or a cover version of them. They are generally accepted as the most influential group of their generation, some would say of all time.

However, the music is not the only thing that is great about this game, it also has a much better story line than previous Rockband games. This game is jam packed with over 45 great Beatles songs that you can play ensuring that you won't find yourself getting bored when you have over two hours worth of songs to play along with. Apart from the wonderful song choice there are some equally well produced graphics but the subject matter is more important than the quality especially with regards to some of the early footage.

You can follow the progress in an interactive journey following the band form their beginnings in Liverpool's Cavern to their appearances at major concert venues and follow them to America where they appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show. The legendary Apple recording studio where they created some of their masterpieces also features and material from their music and conversations there is also included.

You can sing along either by yourself or you can even have 2 friends singing along with you. However, it doesn't just stop with singing as you can even play the drums, guitar and bass guitar.

Don't just think that since there are only a certain number of songs that you will soon be able to master them all and then get bored through repetition. The songs themselves are rich in vocal and instrumental content and something new can be found almost every time you listen. Together with the songs there are also other features to keep you occupied including the facility to get online and play or sing and play along with others.

The developers were on a winner as soon as the game was conceived because whatever your taste in popular music the Beatles have either written a song to suit that taste or influenced almost everyone in the field of modern music from hard rock to ballads.
