Metacritic

Geir Hongro: This may be what causes me to invest in a gaming machine.

Developer Interview

Antexit: What a drag it is that the release of this game coincided almost perfectly with my getting completely and probably permanently bored with the GH/RB mechanic.

S1ocki: Not innovative, but making the package infinitely more tasteful and less crass than the horrible Guitar Hero games made all the difference to me. Also, a soundtrack way more consistent than any other music game.

JimD: I didn’t really like the Beatles until this year. Paul’s bass parts FTW.

NYT Feature

Polyphonic: Here is the ideal way to play this game: my friend Robert is singing, I am on guitar and primary harmonies, my friend Adam is on drums, Robert’s wife Sara is on bass, and our friends Tim and Diane are on secondary harmonies. We are playing either “Revolver” or “Abbey Road” from start to finish. If we’re playing “Abbey Road”, I get to sing the medley.

Wired Feature

Webber: This game could only be better if it were motion capture and you got bonus points for doing Paul’s head wiggle.
