Beatles Rock Band is fab
Having a bucket of fun. Fun larking about with the family and not worrying about scores, fun learning to drum, and then fun sitting quietly obsessing over exact bass riffs and so on.

I thought vocals were dodgy at first. It seemed entirely wrong that I could sing a Beatles song which I am not remotely familiar with, and score five stars on Expert the first time out. But it turns out, after a couple of hours of play on vocals, that I have top ten global scores (on Wii) on four or five different tracks, none of which I've sung more than three times. So I think it's just that it is calibrated so easy that anyone who can actually sing cleans up. (Songs with a single melody line are much easier for me than the harmony songs; turns out I've been singing one of the harmony lines all these years! Who knew?)

It looks great to me. I am sure if you put it side by side with the XBox you'd sulk, but we only have a Wii and it's just fine. The only thing that's hard is that when you unlock photos they have accompanying text, which is small and very hard to read on our shabby old telly. But that's not the fault of the game or the Wii, and is entirely optional anyway. The actual game is fine.

What day is C going to the RI? We're Wednesday 16th.


Thanks. We've only got a Wii too, but we do have a shiny new TV, so we might stand more chance of reading the text. Time to persuade Kathy that it's a suitable birthday present :)

Kathy & Charlotte are going on the 16th as well, so you should see them there.

Oh good, that will be lovely for Marianne.
