A step down from Rockband and Guitar Hero

Summary: Rockband games have been known to be a challenge a fun. Though this game is a step down from Rockband or Guitar Hero. The graphics in the Rockband a and Guitar Hero games are better and have better controls. The controls for this game are kind of a mess. For instance, you ave to switch the nunchuck and wii remote, so the nunchuck will be on your right and your wii remote will be on left. I really doesn't make sense and makes it difficult to play.
Summary: You can play with either a Wii Remote and Nunchuk, or two Wii Remotes. When I first saw this game, I thought it might be nice to play with no additional peripherals. I was so wrong. The easy mode is pretty much every other beat, which I think makes it harder to play. Medium mode was almost playable, but when you miss extra (like the crash cymbals) you get booed off stage pretty quick. In the most difficult mode the controls make no sense and are impossible.
Summary: I have been playing real drums for over 20 years and I can tell you, this game is nothing like the real thing. Not even close. I guess it's alot like guitar hero but I have played that before and this is worse. It just doesn't make any sense and the graphics are lame. Do yourself a favor and avoid this game!
Summary: This is the worst game I have ever seen. It is hard to believe Rolling Stone would associate their good name with such a product. There are no real graphics at all, just a screen shot of a drum set in front of a continuous animated loop of a silly crowd with signals telling you when to hit the 'drums'.
Summary: I received this item as a gift and must say I was a little skeptical at first. I love all the Rock band games and Band Hero. This is not them but fun to play if you like drumming. I enjoyed playing the game and will continue to do so.
