If you had to choose one or the other, which would you rather play: This game or The Beatles: Rock Band? At first, I would have said the Beatles, but then, there could be a certain lack of variety with that game. One thing you have to give to this title is the diversity of the material -- everything from Boston to Incubus is included. Plus, "Through the Fire and Flames" with a full band sounds awesomely hard.
