Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Though Band Hero is similar to Guitar Hero 5 in term of gameplay, it still had a lot to offer. Guitar Hero 5 is said to be "extremely diverse" that players will find that there are songs that they like and there are also songs that they will never even touch. Band Hero done a great job in making the songs to be more specific to pop-oriented tracks.

In my opinion, the game is great in bringing family and friends together. There are a lot of more familiar songs to everyone like Love Story by Taylor Swift, She Will Be Loved by Maroon 5, Beautiful Soul by Jesse McCartney and more. The guitar and drum notes are relatively easy compared to Guitar Hero, so it will be more accessible to everyone especially beginners and not-so-hardcore gamers. The Sing-Along feature is a great addition to make the game more karaoke-like as multiple player can sing simultaneously on one song.

To conclude, you can enjoy this game at it fullest when you bring along your family and friends to play. It is more easy and the songs are more specific and mostly well-known to all. If you are a Guitar Hero expert wanting for challenge, then this is game is certainly not for you. I am giving 5 stars because I can finally enjoy my favorite game with my friends.

Pros
- A good game for beginners and those who want to have fun together
- Sing-along karaoke mode is great for party
- Many known pop songs
- You still can transfer songs from other Guitar Hero games (DLC, World Tour, Smash Hits and 5) and vice-versa
- Party play is a blast

Cons
- For experienced Guitar Hero players, this game will be too easy
- It is basically the same as Guitar Hero 5
- May not be suitable for every Guitar Hero hardcore

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
****in general*****

Band Hero: Featuring Taylor swift is Guitar Hero's answer to the "Rock Band" series. It is highly entertaining and fun with a lot of song choices that's bound to please almost anyone from easy listening to punk/indie to rock. From eras of the 60's to current(early 2010ish, of course, if you read this review 10 years from now, it won't be current anymore. LOL). The game play is fun and addicting and works with the "Rock Band" instruments (guitar and drums and microphone). Replay value is high and has a Karaoke function that is very cool for younger kids that love to sing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

***in detail***

1) Game Play:

Band Hero is a branch out from the "Guitar Hero" franchise to include more of a "band" play vs. just a few guitars strumming. If anyone has played the drums on other Band Hero or Rock Band games they would probably agree that THAT is the instrument that everyone covets. The game play on Band Hero is very smooth and easy to learn especially if one is already experienced with the other Guitar Hero/Rock Band games.

The Guitar chords are nice, the drum buttons work well. If I do have to complain about one thing, that is the bass bar on the drums are almost invisible and can be missed if one is not paying attention to it. And when compared to the Rock Band drum bass bar, the Band Hero drum bass bar is a lot less noticeable.

The Guitar part, we prefer the Band Hero Guitar play over Rock Bands much more.

At our age and level, we are comfortable at a medium level in Band Hero and sometimes will try the Hard or even expert levels (My wife and I are in our late 40's to 50's).

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for families or fans of the series July 5, 2010
By S. Hill
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got this game mainly to add more songs for my family and I to play using the guitar hero world tour band set that we have and I was pretty impressed with how fun it is. I have all the guitar hero games from 1 up to 5 and this is definitely one of the easiest ones, so if you are looking for a challenge you might want to reconsider. There are also a lot of goofy songs on the game, but the majority of it is modern (from the 90's and 2000's) and there are none of the metal songs or classic rock that you see in the other games. With all that said, the graphics are great and sounds quality is great. It follows an almost identical set-up to guitar hero 5 and allows you to import a big collection of the songs from gh5 and ghwt for a few dollars each. This game is perfect for people with kids or that just want to play more guitar hero. Because of my personal taste in music, I prefer it to gh5, but I think that the set-list will either make or break the game for most people (make sure and google it).

4.0 out of 5 stars Still a great game, but could use some updated features December 7, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The gameplay for Band Hero is at least as good as Guitar Hero 5 and it's nice to have songs that are more kid-friendly (there is an option to temporarily hide downloadable content and content from previous versions, too). Guitar Hero's main problem now that there is substantially more music that transfers from one game to the next is that with hundreds of songs they need to look at sorting and listing options like Rock Band currently uses. Because of the difficulty in navigating through the playlist, I only give 4 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite so far of the Guitar Hero Series September 9, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
We own Guitar Hero World Tour which was pretty fun and Guitar Hero 5 Which I didn't care for but Band Hero is the best in my opinion. My family knows and likes most of the songs in Band Hero and we like the popular pop songs instead of a bunch of songs that you have never heard of like on Guitar Hero 5. We also like the new characters like Taylor Swift and Adam Levine from Maroon 5. This game is just a blast to play with a group of people.
