Summary: In a nutshell... buy rockband or Band/Guitar Hero! Game kept the kids amused until they got Rockband. I bought this to see if my kids would like it before the expense of buying the gear and Rockband/Guitar Hero games. Youngest son (8) enjoyed the battle challenges.
Summary: By now, this game is inexpensive. But, that's validated by the quality of this game. This is not like other music games on the market, really you just move the wii-mote in different directions in correspondence with onscreen prompts. I picked it up because of one thing, the ability to hear the songs in different styles. At the beginning of each "battle" you pick a band, which falls into Rock, Hip-Hop, Country, Latin, or Marching Band, then one of 30 songs.
Summary: Having paid under $10 for this title, I wasn't expecting much, and I put off trying it out until late Christmas night. I ended up playing for a long time since it was so much more fun than I had expected! For one thing, you have to shake and move the Wii remote in different directions (which can be a bit tiring - but fun!), rather than just hitting buttons, and the graphics, storyline and gameplay are really creative and fun.
Terrible songs, do NOT try even it seems inexpensive

Summary: My kids hate the songs in this game or they just don't know how to play. Played once and now ready to get rid of it but don't know how. The songs are NOT excited at all and sound more like furenal marches. Do NOT try it; it is no.t worhty to buy.
Summary: Pros: Hearing a song sung and played in a variety of genres, funny band animations, and a variety of venues to play in. Cons: Terrible graphics - everything is very blocky and colors are not very aggreeable to the eye. The music production quality is very low. This game is fun for a few minutes but wears thin fast. Your wrist/hand will get tired over the course of a 4-minute song. There really isn't much to this game at all.
Summary: A VERY INNOVATIVE IDEA! I loved it! My daughter and I played for hours (my wrist still hurt!!). I'm reading some of the reviews from some DISAPPOINTED buyers and I'm wondering what game did you purchase? The game is better than Guitar Hero. It is very challenging and offers a wide array of play options. You can dance and play either to ROCK, COUNTRY, LATIN, HIP HOP and more. You have to learn how to hit the notes..
Summary: Fancy listening to Cypress Hill's Insane In The Brain country style or dancing to the marching band version of KC and the Sunshine Band's That's The Way (I Like It)? As crazy, or cheesy, as they may sound, it's actually a riot to jam to such ludicrous versions of popular songs. Battle Of The Bands takes 30 popular hits and spins them in five styles - metal, hip-hop, country, Latin and marching band.
