3.0 out of 5 stars Band Hero 17 July 2010
By Sarah
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought this game becasue I liked the song list, but have to say that overall I'm a little disappointed.

The actually game itself is laid out in an almost identical format to guitar hero 5 (Not a problem), but unfortunately just looks a bit cheap and nasty. The backgrounds are all these garish hues of fluorescent pink and blue, which are just nasty, and the whole thing looks like it was put together on the cheap.

The trophies available are also strange, with 17 trophies available for 'hidden notes' which means that you either have to sing the song, or get pretty close to 100% notes hit to get the trophy, and you don't even know which songs the hidden notes are in! Saying this though, my brother and I managed to accrue 80% of the trophies in just one days worth of gameplay, which kind of makes the whole trophies thing look like a bit of a sham anyway - again as if not much effort has gone into making the game.

As for the in-game achievements, many of them require vocals or drums, so if you only have guitars you will be unable to collect a lot of the extra stars available. I also found that the intro to 'american pie' whilst playing on hard bass was so long that my guitar switched itself off while I was waiting for the notes to start! (I'm not sure if this could possible be changed in the console settings?)

The good news however is that both of our guitar hero guitars work with this game (the les paul, and the one that comes with GH5), and singstar mics work too which is good. I suppose that for 10 it's worth buying just for the extra songs, but if it's the first game of this type that you're going to buy, then you may well be better off with one of the other guitar hero games - GH5, or GH3 which although it doesn't have trophies, is probably the best of the bunch.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok 21 Sep 2012

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is ok - not as good as some of the other similar games. We bought it because as it is called band hero we thought it would have a bit less focus on the guitar and be a bit better for the other instruments, but this isn't the case, it is in fact more 'guitar' heavy in terms of balance of instruments played than some similar games. It does have some good songs but we didn't find, as musicians, that the playing was that intuitive and it was hard to determine rhythms based on where the 'hits' appear on the on screen fretboards.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having played several Guitar Hero (GH World Tour, GH Metallica, GH5, GH6), I can say that Band Hero is also fun. Of course one might argue that the track list is a bit "softy" compared to the other Guitar Hero titles but I guess it was the purpose of the editor! Generally speaking, Band Hero is easier than the other GH titles.
