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?)

There's so much class everywhere. There's a lovely retro feel to it; there's the special Beatles drum trainer as well as the regular one, together with a setting for just playing on the drums (which reflects the fact that these drums are more robust than a electronic toy drum kit we got J once which was I think £50); the cut scenes are beautiful and cleverly designed, all the soundscapes are individual, the studio chatter is relevant and interesting in its own right (especially the chatter when you fail a track).
