Battle of the Bands Review

DreamStation.cc

  • Conclusion: Battle of the Bands has a good idea, but fails on almost every account to deliver. From the washed out, block graphics to the shoddy, unresponsive gameplay, there is really nothing to recommend a purchase here.

Battle of the Bands

Video Game Generation
20 June 2008
  • Summary: Battle of the Bands seems more like a WiiWare title than a full-fledged purchase, and for $39.99 I expect more. It can be fully completed in a matter of hours. The covers of some really great songs are chopped to pieces and thrown out the window.
  • Pros: Very simple to learn., Good selection of original songs., Fun for a short amount of time.
  • Cons: Lackluster graphics., Bad value for the typical price suggested., Terribly easy., Little or no replay value., Horrible cover songs.

  • Summary: A battle that isn't really worth playing through.
  • Pros: Unique and interesting bands; various musical styles make for interesting songs; jukebox mode.
  • Cons: Not enough to do; no voice-overs; weapons feel lacklustre; hit-or-miss stabbing motions.

  • Excerpt: If you're old enough to remember the original Napster, you're probably also old enough to remember The Gourds' bluegrass remix of Snoop Dog's "Gin and Juice," which took a popular song and completely changed the genre while still creating an enjoyable song.

Review: Battle Of The Bands (Wii)

Space-Meat
19 July 2008
  • Conclusion: If only the actual mechanics weren’t so jerky, simple and repetitive there may be some lengthy fun hidden in BOTB. There’s 30 licenced tracks serving a good variety of genres and songs, if only the covers didn’t sound like complete ass.
  • Pros: * 30 Licenced tracks., * Alternate genre song covers serve brief amusement., * Doesn’t cost twice as much for a guitar-shaped plastic recepticle.
  • Cons: * Doesn’t come with an awesome guitar., * Horribly basic and painful gameplay mechanics., * Terrible sounding songs.

  • Excerpt: Ever wondered what Keane or the Black Eyed Peas would sound like played by a Mexican Latino band? Or how Gorillaz would sound if they were given the country and western treatment? If so, then what's wrong with you? That's a terrible idea.
