The interface is annoyingly slow and cumbersome. Once you find your way around the city you'll find yourself repeating step after step just looking for the basic information that could much better be displayed on a single information page.
Each senario is won basically the same way - buy song, record demo, get record contract for smallest advance and highest royalty, design album cover, send demo copy to radio/magazine/newspaper, 5 days of maximum affordable advertising before releasing album, do as many gigs in the city as possible, give all the band gifts to make them happy, do as much of a world tour as you can do. Repeat.
Most of the available band members are interesting and well rounded. The game play is basically too easy. I was all done within 5-6 hours.
The game gets 3 stars because it was so reasonably priced.
What is good about the game:
The missions are a load of fun. There was as many twists on the basic "build up a band" plot as I could think of.
The various characters have loads of personality and are very funny. The satire is cuts right to the bone.
You get to play around in a virtual recording studio. There isn't much game effect that I could see (apart from whether you decide to use session musicians or not), but its a toy.
What is not good about the game:
Put simply, there are too few choices, which leaves the game somewhat mechanical. For instance, there are only 25 musicians to choose from (fewer the scenarios). The game would easily be much better if the player could make up new ones or audition randomly generated ones. Obviously, such new characters would not the voiceclips and background information that are provided for the characers that come with the game, but replayability counts more than style. Similarly, there is only a limited selection of songs to choose from.Read more ›

The concept is neat but the game forces you to take on missions and you cannot skip over certain ones so I am stuck on the second one. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Trevor William Sherwood
I wish they would come out with another one. It would be great if they had more sandbox mode. If we were lucky an MMORPG.Published on July 16, 2013 by Oran Kenna Woodfin

This is a great game with a great concept, but you cannot really replay the game. For the price that I see that people are selling it used (about $10), it is worth that. Read morePublished on November 19, 2005 by Amazon Customer
