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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
Pros: Solid (albeit short) set list and snazzy looking peripherals...
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.
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”.
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
Excerpt: Love it or hate it, the Guitar Hero franchise has been a huge seller for Activision over the past few years. Despite the fact Activision seem hell bent on churning out more ‘Hero’ games than there are actual bands, the games still sell by the bucket load.
