Review 1 for Band Hero - Game Only
Another Great Music Game!

I dont care if others think this is a Rock Band and/or Guitar Hero clone. All these music games are great! And I love getting these games on PS2! Why PS2? Well, PS2 has ALL the Guitar Hero games! No other system can say that! I still use my Guitar Hero 2 guitar for ALL my Guitar Hero games and there is only 3 Guitar Hero games I am missing at this point! But, I am looking forward to getting my hands on this one!

This game is perfect for: party gamers
As I tired of the storyline you had to trudge thru on the Guitar Hero 1-5 games, it was refreshing to get a game with no story and the ability to just go play the songs right out of the chute! With 70 or so songs to choose from (and in genres other than just majority heavy metal rock), it was a refreshing PS2 game. I like Taylor Swift and the Police and Spice Girls, etc, and many of the other artists and their songs on this game. Probably has the most recognizable songs on it of any of these type of games for me at least. Heck of a bargain. Quite enjoyable to pick out and play along with the songs I enjoy on this game and there are many! Thanks for appearing in this game Taylor!

I wasn't so sure about getting Band Hero (mainly because I'm not a big fan of pop and mainstream rock) So I went out and rented this. Challenge - I'm going to be honest. This game has it's easy songs (on drums I'm talking about) and there is surprisingly a few hard songs. The hard drum songs that you should stay away from (if playing with friends) is Bad Reputation, Rio, and Whip It. I tried out Wannabe and I got 77%. 8/10. Graphics/Animation - The menu looks real good. The menu where you choose your song is blue, purple, and pink I like it. The graphics are O.K. But it is a PS2 game. 8/10. Responsiveness - Band Hero responds really good. 10/10. Sound - The sound in Band Hero is actually really good. But it's always supposed to be that way. 10/10. Controls - Not sure what they mean by controls. 10/10 if they are talking about if whether or not the controls on the game are hard or not. Interface - I like the Band Hero interface. 9/10. Song Variety - The song variety is good mainly if you like Pop and Mainstream Rock bands. For example if you like bands/artists like Jackson 5, Taylor Swift, No Doubt, Maroon 5, or Fall Out Boy you'll love this game. But however if you like bands like Metallica, Megadeth, Pantera, Motörhead, or Judas Priest you may not like this game. I however like Metal and I found myself to actually like this game. Oh, and I would like to point out that Taylor Swift, Adam Levine, and No Doubt are unlockables characters in the game. You can unlock them by playing their song(s) in career mode on any instrument. And hyperspeed is already available in the cheat menu. I would say at least rent Band Hero first if you aren't so sure about getting this.
