I hate The Beatles, I love Rock Band so buying this was a really hard decision, but I made the right one.

User Rating: 9.5 | The Beatles: Rock Band X360
I went to the store 7 hours ago to pick up this game and I had mixed thoughts, was it going to be crap since the music is kinda lame (sorry The Beatles fans) but since its Rock Band, it should be awesome! So I went and bought it and returned hope, popped it in and pressed play.

The intro movie is quick, snappy and kinda fun actually and it gives you the overall feel of the game: "Happy"
I then get to the menu and select story and so on, I enter some screen and then poof, I am playing at the first concert (I suppose) and wow, this game really is frickin' awesome.

After playing through it I sat still and was just amazed. This is so much better than the crap Guitar Hero is releasing, why couldn't it have been Metallica: Rock Band instead of Guitar Hero: Metallica?!?!?!? I mean, this game tells the story, in photos and what not and thousands of other cool things. If I were a Beatles fan, I would be jumping up and down on the ground like kid who just got his first gameboy!

The graphics are stunning, even for a music game, its happy, cartoony and realistic at the same time, and I must say, Harmonix, great effing job on this game. Really. (Even though it should have been Megadeth: Rock Band, but what ever :D)

The gameplay is as you would expect as a game like this, just a tad more! Its like Rock Band 2, addicting, fun and exciting, but the Story/World Tour mode is even more developed and its really amazing compared to any other music game out there and its really brilliant.

The sound is as you would expect it from a game, awesome quality of songs and menu sounds are pretty stellar too, even though when you're on drums and cycling through the menus an annoying ride cympal plays all the time, but I am able to overlook that when I Wanna Hold Your Hand plays in the background.

My last words for this game is amazing. They couldn't really improve the game in my mind. So without further a do, heres the scores.

Graphics: 9.5
Gameplay: 9.0
Sound: 10.0
Overall: 9.5
