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.
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.
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.
Summary: Ultimate Band is an all new music experience giving gamers and music lovers of all ages the chance to realize their dream of becoming a rock legend when they build their own band or jam alone, fueled by the power of the Wiimote and the DS stylus.
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.
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
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.
Summary: Während sich 'Ultimate Band' zwar an eine jüngere Zielgruppe richtet, wird sich keiner dabei langweilen. Dafür sorgen die sehr gut ausbalancierten Schwierigkeitsgrade ebenso wie das unterschiedliche Handling der vier Instrumente.
Excerpt: Spil om eller med rockbands, musik og Fisher Price-agtige guitarer er rigtig populære for tiden. Derfor gælder det jo om at komme med på vognen, hvilket er præcis hvad Fall Line Studios (dem der er kendt for… øh… ja…) har gjort med musikspillet Ultimate Band.
