Summary: Band Hero is yet another game in the Guitar Hero series. It's a peak in the mainstream direction the game took in last years. Therefore, the songs and the whole atmosphere of the game is more likley to match to more casual gamers rather then the hardcore fans of the series or heavy rock fans. The songs are likeable, but no very hard even on expert. Likewise, their not very fun to play on your on since there is no really a challenge.
Summary: This game is practically identical to Guitar Hero 5 (except for different songs. So, if you liked GH5, then you will like this one. I am not sure if others find this to be true but it seems like there is a different lag setting when you play guitar and when you play drums. It's kinda wierd and I never had this trouble with Rock Band games. I went though the options and done the set-up lag thing, but had to go back and tweak it some.
