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.

  • 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.

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”.
  • 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.
