Band Hero

Family Friendly Gaming
13 February 2010
  • Excerpt: The Nintendo DS version of Band Hero improves upon the Guitar Hero franchise on this little hand held. Players can play the guitar, sing, or play the drums. This puts the Nintendo DS in different configurations. Up to four players can connect and play this game with one another. The catch is each player must have a copy of Band Hero on the DS. If you have the Wii version of Band Hero, there is also connectivity. Band Hero contains thirty songs from various eras.

Test Band Hero

Generation NT
12 February 2010
  • Conclusion: Activision se diversifie et il le fait bien. Les joueurs qui n'avaient pas encore trouvé leur jeu musical auront sans doute plus de chance ici. Car si Band Hero n'a pas reçu toutes les faveurs de l'éditeur, il conserve toutes les qualités d'un Guitar Hero et donc du savoir-faire des développeurs. Pour se différencier tout de même de son aîné, les développeurs ont su lui apporter quelques touches personnelles, comme les graphismes, ou encore le mode Choeurs.
  • Pros: Mode Chœurs, Même contenu que Guitar Hero, Playlist éclectique
  • Cons: L'utilisation des artistes de Guitar Hero 5 dans ce Band Hero

Band Hero

Playstation Illustrated
5 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Band Hero is recognizable at a glance as being part of the Guitar Hero series of games. It has the same cartoon style and, for that matter, all of the familiar Guitar Hero characters, such as Lars Umlaut, Judy Nails and Izzy Sparks. In general, Band Hero is visually geared towards a more "Pop" scene, and the venues reflect this.

Band Hero

  • Summary: At long last Activision releases a portable "Hero" game that I actually like. While Band Hero isn't perfect, it does offer more than just painful, hand-cramping guitar mechanics. This time around you can drum and sing, two modes that prove to be a lot of fun on the go. Throw in some fun multiplayer gameplay and Wii connectivity and you have a huge step in the right direction!

  • Summary: If you've always wanted to play a Guitar Hero game buy hate all of that rock 'n roll, then boy do I have a game for you! Band Hero isn't much different from Guitar Hero 5, but it does have a track list that will appeal to a slightly younger age group. It also features all of the bells and whistles that made Activision's guitar simulator so much fun! Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review.

Band Hero (DS)

GamePro.com
23 November 2009
  • Excerpt: With three portable iterations of Guitar Hero currently on store shelves, it was inevitable that Activision would introduce the full-on band experience onto Nintendo's popular handheld -- but how well does it work? Reviewer Megan Watt tried her hand at the DS version of Band Hero, but the lack of a career mode and On Tour's infamous hand-cramping peripheral really hurts the overall experience.
  • Pros: Solid (albeit short) set list and snazzy looking peripherals...

Rock Band: Guitar Hero killer?

PS3 Camp
6 April 2008
  • Excerpt: qui reprend tout simplement chaque instrument d’un groupe de rock bien comme il se doit : chant au micro, guitare a la guitare de GuitarHero, basse avec la guitare de GuitarHero et enfin le set de batterie avec des futs electroniques.

Review: Band Hero

The Review Crew
6 March 2011
  • Summary: I thoroughly enjoyed playing through Band Hero. In fact I will openly admit, I maybe played it a bit too long. When I was supposed to be playing other review copies of games, I found myself sneaking Band Hero back into my console to beat “just one more song”. Yes I know I will take heat for liking the bubblegum goodness that is Band hero, but I can accept that.
  • Pros: Chart topping hits, Same solid play controls the series is known for
  • Cons: Not very different from Guitar Hero 5, Fewer tracks tracks than GH 5 (65 vs 85), Why is the word “Whiskey” removed from American Pie? Seriously
