Nintendo DS Gameplay
Band Hero for DS (not compatible with the BSI) is the first ever portable full band gaming experience, allowing fans to create the band they have always dreamed of using any combination of supported inputs, providing wannabe rockers and performers of all ages the chance to experience and interact with their favorite music like never before. Full band gameplay is facilitated through a combination of 4-player multiplayer support via a Nintendo Wi-Fi connection and instrument emulation. Instruments possible in the game are vocals, drums, guitar and bass guitar. Vocal inputs are handled through the DS' built-in microphone, while the other three instruments are imputed via the two different peripherals included with the game. These two are the Band Hero branded grip for playing guitar and bass, and the new Band Hero drum skins for DS. Both contain colored buttons and pads respectively to guide players as they follow along with the game's familiar color-coated Guitar Hero style gameplay. The drum skin rests atop your DS' D-pad and face buttons in an arrangement designed to mimic an actual drum kit, while the grip plugs into the DS' Game Boy Advance slot allowing for simultaneous easy use and screen viewing. The game includes multiple play options, including single player, and multiplayer modes and even the ability to team up with a partner playing on a Wii version of the game for an all new level of competition.

The Song List
Band Hero for Nintendo DS features over 30 master recordings from some of the hottest bands of today and yesteryear. Some of the songs players can expect to be cranking out with their bands are:

  • The All-American Rejects - "Believe"
  • Avril Lavigne - "Girlfriend"
  • Black Eyed Peas - "Let's Get It Started"

5.0 out of 5 stars A really cool the drum skin.... December 3, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had needed a Guitar Hero Grip...that was my main reason buying this bundle. It comes with your standard guitar hero grip. No different then the one included in the very first Guitar Hero On Tour DS Game. It also comes with a sleeve to change the old guitar hero with the new band hero sleeve in the guitar grip. Also comes with the stylus pick. The DS Game. Instruction booklets. You know the usual. The two big things with this DS game that sets it apart from all other Guitar Hero/Rock Band DS games. You have the drum skin for playing drums and the microphone will allow you to sing vocals. The Microphone is a little inaccurate but the game makes up for it by having a higher margin for error when singing. The drum skin is nice. Only works and fits with the DS Lite! I found it fun and a nice change to the series. The guitar features of the game work just like any Guitar Hero game on the DS. There is also Wi-Fi compatibility with the Band Hero WII Game. If you have the Band Hero WII game you can use the Band Hero & DS system to act as a live playlist editor for the Wii Game. A nice add-on, although not really very important option.

I found it to be a really good DS game. Fans of GH DS games should love it and love the changes. The tracklist is a little more pop and lighter family friendly rock then Guitar Hero and Rock Band games. But many of songs are still fun to play even so.

I recommend Band Hero DS to any Guitar Hero fans, especially fans of the Guitar Hero DS series of games.

5.0 out of 5 stars great July 10, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you like Guitar hero you will like this game. This game however like many other games is only made for the Nintendo ds lite. If you look on the box it even says so. However, when I got mine their were 2 game cartridges. 1 I put in my dsi, which allows me to use the drums. The drums are compatible with the dsi, but nothing else. I tried my dsi xl with the drums, but as the dsi xl is twice the size of the ds lite and the dsi it doesn't fit. :( The only thing is that my ds lite is so old that the screen goes out frequently which results in me missing notes. However, I ordered a new ds lite yesterday :) I do have 1 complaint though, but it isn't really a complaint. I just assumed that since this was band hero that the guitar grip should have the band hero design instead of the guitar hero sign. Their is a paper to change it, however you have to unscrew everything to change it which isn't really worth it... Also, even though this has the guitar hero grip, if you are just buying it for the guitar hero grip you are wasting your money. Their was a link I stumbled on when browsing amazon earlier, and you can buy guitar hero grips separately, or by themselves. Do not buy this unless you also want to use drums and vocal. Or if you want different or new songs. Sorry... I saw a comment somewhere that someone bought this just to replace their guitar hero grip, and I thought that was wasteful. I haven't found a link in case something happens to the drums, but I am sure their is one here somewhere. If their is one for the guitar then their is one for the drums... normally...

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT GREAT GREAT PRODUCT October 15, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a very good purchase, you get the guitar grip and the drumset, some of the songs i wasn't familiar with, but that's my own fault :) there's a whole load of awards, that's the great and not so great part of the game, but that's a game design thing.
All in all, I'd totally recommend this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great music...nice drum skin March 9, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
It's unfortunate that the star rating is so low because people didn't read the entire writing on the picture, which clearly states, EXCLUSIVELY FOR THE DS LITE. But, in all fairness to those people, it should've also been written in the product description...

Anyway, the music is great...upbeat, catchy, fun. The graphics are nice and vibrant. For me, the best part is the drum skin. It is a nice addition. I like that when I get sick of playing on the guitar or my wrist gets sore from using the guitar (as it so often does because of the positioning and inability to find a comfortable way to play it), I can slip on the drum skin and play. The drum skin also adds a bit of difficulty since it's not quite what you're used to.

I took away 1 star because I actually find that the difficulty levels are much harder than the other Guitar Hero games for DSL. For example, on the easy level, it's more like a medium, and the medium is more like a hard level.

For any GH fan, this is a nice addition and lots of fun to play.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for all DS systems February 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Really, really, REALLY wish it would have stated ANYWHERE in the product description that this is for DS Lite. My daughter has a DSi...the look of disappointment on her face when she tried to fit the guitar grip was so very sad for me to have to see. Come on, you can do better thant this Amazon - simply give full disclosure for your products!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Be informed: An international surprise! January 4, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
A word of caution: Galactics fulfilled this order with the European version of this game. For me, it was a pleasant surprise, as the European song list is better. That being said, I don't know if this one was some fluke of nature, or if all of their supple is the EUR version, but you should research both song lists just to be sure you will be happy with the order when you receive it.
