Disney Releases Yet Another Battling Band

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Excerpt: As simple, easy-to-grasp music games go, Ultimate Band deserves a nod of appreciation. Sure, these are simplistic cover versions of pop songs, the story is juvenile, and overly easy gameplay dominates the game. But it also doesn't cost $160, and it plays on a game system nearly every family in America with small children has in their living room.

Easy, low-stress music game without peripherals.

Common Sense Media
27 July 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is the latest game to jump on the music game bandwagon, but unlike some others, it doesn't require guitar and drum peripherals to play. The E10+ rating refers to some very mild language such as "crap," "ass," and "hell" in lyrics. Players can deck out band members in new outfits and accessories, but they're all actually quite tame and tasteful.

Ultimate Band

Family Friendly Gaming
20 July 2009
  • Excerpt: Ultimate Band on the Nintendo DS is a little bit different than the Wii version. Many of the same songs are included, but the motions are limited to the touch screen. For an instrument like the drums this is fine. For guitars, the strumming is the only thing emulated. That is not a bad thing, it just does not feel like the Wii version.

Ultimate Band

Game Boyz
2 May 2009
  • Excerpt: My first exposure to Ultimate Band for the Wii was at Disney Interactive Studios Holiday Event in late 2008. A few weeks later I also had the opportunity to sit in on an interview with members of the development team from Fall Line Studios. Ultimate band presented itself as an interactive music game without the need for additional instruments which seems to be required for other such titles.

Ultimate Band – Wii

Testfreaks blog
7 January 2009
  • Summary: Fans of rhythm games such as Rock Band and Guitar Hero usually have gaming areas that look like the backstage of a rock concert. Usually, there are multiple plastic guitars, drums and mike strewn about the area. The unique selling feature of Ultimate Band from Disney Interactive is there is no need for a room full of fake guitars and drums.
  • Pros: Easy for younger gamers, Quick learning curve, Easy to pick up and play, No need for fake instruments
  • Cons: Controllers inaccurate, Cover songs could sound better

Ultimate Band Review

GameSpot
3 December 2008
  • Excerpt: Before you think about picking up Ultimate Band, there are two things you should know. First: there’s no need to purchase expensive plastic instruments, instead you’ll use your Wii Remote, Nunchuk, and imagination to mimic the instruments on screen. Second: although other full band rhythm games create the illusion of playing a song by tying notes to your button presses, Ultimate Band does not.
  • Pros: Changing the voice of the frontman is a nice touch, The drum controls almost feel like playing the drums, Charming characters and family-friendly presentation
  • Cons: The bass controls are too finicky, Playing as the frontman is lame and tiring, Unreliable gesture recognition, Being forced to replay songs isn't fun

Ultimate Band (Wii) - due out April 10th!

WiiTalk
30 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Recently there has been a real flurry of music games hitting the shelves, and obviously some are better than others. Some also carry frightening price tags that include all the instruments required to play them… Ultimate Band is a Disney game, and does not require any peripherals. Your remote and nunchuk are the instruments, as they are in Wii Music!
