  • Conclusion: Battle of the Bands wraps a neat idea in a novel presentation. It's a quirky game that's best enjoyed in short bursts with a friend. The challenge and gameplay will feel weak over the long run for those who've been spoiled by expert-level sessions of Guitar Hero and Rock Band, although rhythm game...

  • Summary: Not every idea that looks good on paper actually works as well as anticipated once implemented. Just as Edna Morris. "Who?" you ask, "is Edna Morris?" Edna is the person that looked at the success other restaurants were having with the all-you-can-eat business model.

  • Excerpt: Rhythm Action/Music Rock Band but about £100 cheaper. “To make a good music game, you need to make the player feel like a performerâ€�. Horse shit! That was a quote I took form another review I read for this game (not naming names) while I was doing… ummmm… research.
