5.0 out of 5 stars A guilty pleasure...but GREAT nonetheless!! November 9, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Bundle
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There are 2 groups of people that typically play Guitar Hero: Those who are score obsessed... they are all about mastering the most challenging of songs and having the highest scores on the leaderboards. Then there are those who love having a group of their friends over to play plastic instruments and yell at the top of their lungs for hours on end. For the most part...I fall into the second category.

I have loved every entry in the Rock Band series, and more recently fell in love with Guitar Hero 5. However, these games have failed me in one vital area: the soundtrack for these games is kinda niche. Oftentimes when friends or family would come over for a "Guitar Hero" or "Rock Band" party, it would turn into each of them taking turns scrolling through hundreds of alternative, progressive, or heavy metal songs until they find one or two that they know and KINDA LIKE... and since they don't necessarily own a Guitar Hero or Rock Band game, they aren't overly concerned about scores or anything like that...they just want to play music they know and love. That is where Band Hero swoops in to save the day (or at least save my party!!)

Rather than focusing on niche genres of music, Band Hero does the exact opposite... Band Hero's soundtrack is focused on Pop music. The very definition of POP MUSIC is music that is popular... songs that everyone knows and loves. And I have to say, Band Hero delivers. There is some great music on Band Hero. Granted, the setlist on Guitar Hero 5 was more appealing to me personally... but Band Hero's setlist will be a HUGE hit at my next party, which, thanks to Band Hero, will be more of a "Karaoke party that also features all of the cool Guitar Hero elements for those interested" than a "Guitar Hero party".

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliance December 6, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Bundle
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I actually bought this for the Wii because it comes with the updated drum set. Beware if you are getting the other platforms because, at least initially, you will get the same set that was shipped with World Tour. When I set out to get it, I really didn't expect much from the set list because Hillary Duff is not really my thing, just wanted an extra guitar and the updated drums. I set it up to make sure everything was in working order and to test out the drum set. The drums work flawlessly and are 100 times improved over the Word Tour set that sometimes never work.

But, here's why I really came to write this review. I have a 6 year old daughter who heard the music playing and came out immediately as if Taylor Swift was the Pied Piper. I promptly handed her the guitar and showed her how to make a character. She went for the rocker and outfitted her in all pink of course. I set her up on the beginner level, which consists of just strumming at the right time with no color coding. She picked it up right away and thus a star was born. We worked through all of her favorites; Hillary Duff, everything by Taylor Swift, Evanescence, a little Janet and the Jackson 5 and a few others and she was hooked. I backed her up on drums and she was hitting 90-95% consistently. This repackaged Guitar Hero 5 is a stroke of genius if marketed appropriately. My daughter did not want to go to sleep. She never showed any interest in previous versions of Guitar Hero and she has been around others playing it; but this one has a hold of her like crack. I think I told her; "ok, last one", at least 10 times before I resorted to "ok really this time, last one".

5.0 out of 5 stars Great GH Game Sequel December 14, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii| Edition:Bundle|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Great GH Game Sequel

First of all, sorry for my English, but I¡¦ll do my best¡K besides that, there are several ways you can review this game¡K

THE MUSIC
I don¡¦t really like most of the songs included in this game but I knew it before I bought it so I don¡¦t really have any problem about that. I own almost all of the previews GH games so I have plenty music to play with, but if you really like pop music then you will like the songs more than I do.

THE GAME MODES
Party Play: I really like this game mode specially when playing with friends who are not as good enough to finish a song in quickplay mode.

Quickplay: Nothing too much different to what you get in GH5, you have the option to play with online players, the problem is that I never get someone online. There is a way that is supposed to be ¡§easier¡¨ to play online but you have to register other Wii console number in you Wii contacs in order to use this feature.

Career: The same as GH5, I personally prefer the career mode in World Tour, I don¡¦t know why neversoft changed this but guess most of the people like it.

You can play using your Miis, I have played this mode a couple of times, its fun is you just want to play whatever you want because you ¡§create¡¨ your song as you play.
