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.
Excerpt: Activision a décidé de diversifier sa licence Guitar Hero en différents genres musicaux et de toucher une cible plus large que le seul public amateur de rock. Les apprentis DJ ont eu droit à leur titre, les amateurs de pop, ou de musique plus consensuelle diffusée sur les ondes, donc, que tout le monde connaît, ont eux aussi doit aux faveurs de l'éditeur. Band Hero est donc le pendant très grand public de Guitar 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! This product was submitted by the publisher for review.
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! This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on.
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...
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.
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”. 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
