Rock Out! Band Hero


Allyson Malecha writes, Taylor Swift!

Taylor Swift! The All American Rejects! Corinne Bailey Rae! Band Hero! I received Band Hero recently, which is available for the Wii, Xbox360, and Playstation 2 and 3. Band Hero is fun for the whole family, and it includes popular pop, rap, and rock music. I prefer Band Hero to Guitar Hero World Tour because the music is more recent and has more songs that I generally listen to. (If I listed all of the artists (63) on Band Hero, it might take this whole article.) Band Hero includes one sparkling red guitar, one black drumset, and one black “Guitar Hero” microphone.My system was wireless, except for the microphone, as I have a Nintendo Wii, and it was very easy to setup.The game comes in Career, Quickplay, Party Play, andFreestyle modes. Band Hero is also available in a portable mode for theNintendo DS Lite, which can be used with the full instrumental Band Hero. Band Hero is a great game for the whole family; I played it with some of my friends and my uncle, who all loved it. You can create a bandby choosing a logo, name, and band members for Career and Quickplay mode. My favorite mode for Band Hero is the Party or Freestyle mode. The Party mode is great because you can never fail a song and I love the Freestyle mode becauseyou have no notes to follow and you can play the song back like a music video.If you own previous versions of Guitar Hero, you can use your instruments with Band Hero if you wish to add a fourth controller. A drawback of Band Hero isthe price, (roughly $200 for the set with instruments and about $50 for thesoftware.). I would recommend the game to families who would like to become rock stars and aren’t afraid to jump around singing their favorite music.The game is great and it would make an awesome gift for the holidays to give or receive or just for fun.Rating- 9.5 out of 10Name: Band HeroCompany: Activision Rating: E10+ (everyone 10 and up)
