Band Hero (Xbox 360)

 

Just two months after the release of Guitar Hero 5, Activision has rolled out Band Hero. These two games are functionally the same, so Band Hero benefits from all the improvements that made Guitar Hero 5 so great, including the excellent new Party Play...

DJ Hero (Xbox 360)

 

As is the case with almost every rhythm game out there, playing DJ Hero will not prepare you to be an actual DJ. The songs are premixed, the sound effects are preloaded, and the wheel (just one) of steel is actually plastic. Yet, as is also the case...

A great addition to the rhythm game family. The music game genre isn't quite what it used to be. The barrage of plastic guitars and bulky drum kits is likely...

Great controller ; Outstanding tracks ; Simplistic design ; Challenging and addictive

Music certainly acquired taste ; DLC prices feel steep

If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my track pack. The premise behind Band Hero is exactly what is going to get it the most criticism from...

Party play ; Importing option ; Sleek design ; DS connectivity

Limited audience ; Not much different from GH5

Band Hero on Xbox 360

 

Streamlined

With its pop rock music track, Band Hero is definitely a great party game or something that parents can participate in with their younger kids. Designed from the ground up to be as user friendly as possible, Band Hero’s streamlined menu structure and...

Band Hero Review (Xbox 360)

 

Having focused on rock music for a number of years with the Guitar Hero series, in November 2009 Activision released a new game to please fans of pop music; Band Hero.

Start up Band Hero and you can literally jump right into performing/playing before even choosing what to do. That's the goal – jump in and play, and Band Hero succeeds greatly in that regard. Players can solo play, join or form a band, do some...

Avatar rocking ; Song variety ; Fun ; Drop in and out party gameplay ; Song/instrument specific challenges

65 songs that aren't all campatible with the other Guitar Hero games ; Why can't all the Guitar Hero songs be downloaded and work here ; Brand/franchise dillution ; The stars don't let the player's avatar play in the band

This might be what Guitar Hero 5 should have been.

A mixed bag

It is a pop-skinned Guitar Hero 5

It is only a pop-skinned Guitar Hero 5

However you look at it, Band Hero is a mixed bag and a decision on its purchase will most likely come down to the music included on the disc. I for one love it and I know for a fact that a lot of the songs will be big hits at family parties in the...

Review: Band Hero (Microsoft Xbox 360)

 

Band Hero expecting the reviewer to lambast the song list choices in the title, but, that’s just not the case. Activision and crew has actually assembled quite a suitable song list for a new demographic in family and party play while implementing pop...

Band Hero Review

 

If you feel like you just haven't gotten enough Guitar Hero this year, Activision has got you covered. After half a dozen games on multiple platforms, they've now branched the Hero franchise into three paths - the new ones are DJ Hero, which involves a...

Frankly, Band Hero could have easily been called Guitar Hero 5 Part 2 and no one would have cared. It's pretty much the same game with only a few visual differences and new cosmetic elements, and while Activision's most prolific franchise is only...
