Less of the same

EdSanRive, Amazon
23 August 2013
  • Summary: It's a spinoff video game as part of the Guitar Hero series of music rhythm games, released by Activision (attributed with killing the series). The game is structurally similar to Guitar Hero 5, and supports full band play (lead and bass guitar, drums, and vocals). Virtual avatars of Taylor Swift, Adam Levine (the bad), and the band No Doubt are presented in the game.

I was excited but it wasn't happy on quality

Gregory Reinhardt, Amazon
15 January 2013
  • Summary: The family was excited to open the box but found its quality lacking from the Beatles version we lost during Hurricane Sandy. The box it was shipped in was well worn but inside it all looked fine. The problem was the responsiveness of the Drum kits was hit and miss. It unfortunately sits there unused.

Fun Game - Broke within the first hour

jphys "jen", Amazon
3 January 2011
  • Summary: The game is a lot of fun. Not intuitive on some levels. The little joy stick for the drum controller broke within the first hour. Now we are trying to find the replacement part. This is really frustrating! You can hardly hear the sound from the sing-along part. The idea is great but we were really disappointed by the quality of the product!

Not that Great

Dylan6758, Bestbuy
7 August 2010
  • Summary: After I got the Beatles Rock Band (which I love) I rented Band Hero (not really from Best Buy, but whatever). Anyway, the game isn't that great.
  • Pros: Easy to Play, Good Price
  • Cons: Songs that are simply OK, Graphics are bad compared to other Guitar Hero/Rock Band games, Unfun for some reason

Great game, but ripoff set

Sam H., Amazon
27 July 2010
  • Summary: So you think you plop down $160 on Amazon to play Band Hero with your new Wii, right? Wrong. In fact, you are paying for empty drums, empty guitar, and a microphone that does not work without a wii controller. Yep, you just spent almost as much as you paid for the Wii for something that DOES NOT WORK WITH A NEW WII. You must purchase separate Wii remotes for each player who's playing despite the fact that the microphone is not even wireless.

Sound Issues

PMcOuntry "PMcOuntry", Amazon
27 June 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this because I have seen it in stores, etc. and though it would be fun. I also purchased The Beatles to go with it (luckily I didn't open it). I am returning both. Why? I turned up all the instruments to max under options, and turned everything else down low. Could I hear the guitar/drums? Barely! I will say the game is difficult, I didn't expect it to be "easy", but half the time when I "hit" the correct button/drum it would say I didn't.

Nichts für Anfänger

Tani2011, Amazon
14 June 2011
  • Summary: Wir haben uns das Bundle zugelegt, da wir GH zwar schon immer toll fanden, die Songs aber einfach zu rockig für uns waren. Da kam Band Hero sehr gelegen. Voller Elan bauten wir alles auf, um festzustellen, dass man 3 Controller braucht, wenn man alle Instrumente gleichzeitig nutzen möchte. Nachdem wir alles eingestellt und auch eine dritten Controller aufgetrieben hatten, ging es dann los. Die Menüführung ist einfach und die Songauswahl gut.

Gutes Spiel - Schlechtes Material

Danny Behne, Amazon
21 October 2010
  • Summary: Zum Spiel kann man sagen: Alles Top. Es macht Spaß, ist anspruchsvoll und natürlich ideal fü Partyabende geeignet. Was allerdings überhaupt keinen Spaß macht ist, dass der Schalter der Gitarre sehr schnell den Geist aufgibt. Habe das Bundle jetzt ca. 1,5 Monate, spiele durchschnittlich 3 mal die Woche 1,5 Stunden und der Anschlagschalter möchte jetzt nicht mehr so, wie er es sollte. Das heißt von 3mal klicken reagiert er ungefähr 1 mal.

instruments super, Musiques très décevantes

n2450233, Amazon
11 March 2010
  • Summary: Les instruments de musique sont super sympas. Le micro en particulier: je pensais que chanter dans la télé serait sans intérêt, en fait c'est vraiment super. La batterie est toujours assez bruyante: le chtac contre les tambour rend fou les voisins à plusieurs pièces de distance (d'autant que loin, on n'entend plus la musique et seulement les chtac). Le gros reproche est la musique qui est du BOYS BAND ET GIRLS BAND TRÈS MOU ET SANS RELIEF.
