Band Hero (X360) - Review

VGChartz
15 January 2010
  • Excerpt: In the unending battle of the rhythm games, a frequent opinion against Neversoft and Activision’s venerable Guitar Hero franchise is an unpopular set list. The answer to this arrives with Band Hero, a Guitar Hero 5 port that looks more like American Idol or Dick Clark’s American Bandstand than anything vaguely hard rock or metal. Gone are the skulls and hard-rock horns, replaced by bright blues, purples, and emo versions of the Guitar Hero character lineup.

  • Excerpt: Overshadowed by the recent releases of DJ Hero and Guitar Hero 5, Band Hero arrives on the scene with little hoopla. Some gamers might have been looking forward to this latest music game, but I have to be honest, Band Hero was nowhere near on my fall/winter release radar. Advertised as a standalone Guitar Hero game aimed at families, tweens, teens, and the casual gamer; Band Hero certainly accomplishes what it sets out to do.

Band Hero Review

AtomicGamer
2 December 2009
  • Excerpt: If you feel like you just haven't gotten enough Guitar Hero this year, Activision has got you covered. After half a dozen games on multiple platforms, they've now branched the Hero franchise into three paths - the new ones are DJ Hero , which involves a pretty new style of gameplay with an entirely new controller, and Band Hero . What I find so odd about Band Hero is that it does almost nothing different over the Guitar Hero games.

Pop Music Gets Its Own Hero

Game Informer
4 November 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: Guitar Hero filled with radio-friendly pop hits Graphics: Neon visuals and prepped-out characters may remind you of Jem – they’re truly, truly, truly outrageous Sound: The on-disc songs are toe-tapping, head-bopping pop success stories that saw more radio airplay than you’ve lived years of life Playability: Nothing has changed in the ubiquitous gem-falling gameplay Entertainment: Note charts are too simplistic, but the songs are pop gold Replay: Moderately High

  • Conclusion: Certainly not for everyone and does come packed with a DLC argument hanging over its head. Band Hero will tick every box for the audience it’s intended for, though.
