The Beatles Rock Band  is a simulated rock band video game. There can be up to 6 players with access to up to 3 controllers at one time. The three controllers consist of a guitar controller (for lead and bass guitar play), a drum controller (for drum play), and a microphone used for vocals.

To play the game you use the controller to follow on screen notes to complete a simulation of a rock song. The guitar is used by pressing colored buttons that mimic the frets on a real guitar and a strum bar. The drums are used by striking the base with a colored drumhead, and the microphone speaks for itself!

Be sure to sing in pitch when you sing in the microphone because the game has a pitch indicator to evaluate your accuracy to stay in pitch. The better your pitch the more performance points you receive; which is the purpose of game. As play progresses you are expected to stay on a certain level. If you fail to hit notes correctly your performance level will drop and if the level empties you will be dropped out of the play of the game.

Some alterations have been made in this game versus the previous Rock Band games, to preserve the sound of the Beatles. Booing when you fail, audio cues that explain your performance and sing along with lyrics have been disabled. If a band member were to fail the member is not booed off stage, you will simply be directed to a screen with the option to try again. When hitting notes correctly for long streaks Beatlemania can be activated, this will give you more points.

If you are on guitar the whammy bar can be toggled to use Beatlemania. Depending on how you play, a rank of 1 to 5 stars will be issued to you at the end of the song. If you hit 98% of the notes correctly you will receive a rank of 5 gold stars, as compared to the normal Bronze.

This is a game that will teach you about rhythm, music, and a little about the history of one of the most famous, and influential bands of all time. This does not mean you are going to learn how to play a real instrument, but it is a great way to keep youngsters involved in music.
