My daughter has been having lots of fun with Band Hero & rated it as a four star game. Once she calibrated the game to our TV, she had more fun with it. She likes the music a lot better than the music that came with her Guitar Hero game. Being a Taylor Swift fan, she says even though there's only 3 Taylor Swift songs included, it's better than none. Another feature she has fun with, is customizing her band.

Speaking from a parent's point of view, the wireless guitar, wired microphone and drums have a nice weight to them, are nicely constructed, & not flimsy. I expect them to last with normal usage. The weight of the drum pedal, along with the non-skid material on the bottom, prevent the pedal from moving around the floor. She hasn't had any problems with the cymbals moving out of position & sits on an ottoman when she plays the drums. I'd like to see a microphone stand included so she could sing and play an instrument at the same time.

UPDATE:
In 2010, after approx 1 yr of use, the plastic around the wires started to degrade; some got sticky & others fell off in pieces. I wrapped the wires with electrical tape making the game usable again.
2012 - My daughter is older now & hasn't played it in about a year.

Bought band hero for kid for Christmas. Received a faulty drum set and faulty kick pedal with the rubber falling off the cords and sticking in my carpet. Great. Sent in for warranty repair, waited too long to receive them back, then get some oddball pedal and a drum set with not only the rubber falling off the cords again but a set for the wrong game system. This is what you get when you buy Activision for your kids. Big mistake.

This is a fun game even for small kids. The easy to hard levels makes it great for any age and you don't have to actually turn all the instruments on for the game to work. (We leave the guitar off while the 3 year old plays but he thinks he's playing) For those less musical, the easy level really is easy. I just wish you could up load more songs or they had songs the younger kids would know. But we still like it.

I got this $50 cheaper at Amazon.com than any other store I could find, even on sale.
It's our first "Band" game..and is really fun for us parents to play with the kids. I bought Rock Band first..but after looking at the song list.. returned it. It was more for the the 22-28 age bracket, in my opinion. We have many Guitar Hero games but no drums, mic etc. It's a way for all of us to play together.
It was delivered quickly and was at my front door. No lugging it home after packing it in the car by myself.
The only downside is, that I think you have to hit the drums kinda hard for them to register in the game. Not sure if it's just this set of drums or all in Band Hero. But my 8 yr old has no trouble banging away (i would think 5 yr old might not be strong enough). Overall I was quite happy with my choice in games, and the service from Amazon.com

Buyer beware, if you do purchase it, open the box right away before your return window closes.

I purchased the item at the beginning of November as a Christmas gift. I didn't think to open the box to check to make sure it was ok. Christmas eve we were attempting to put it together and like others the foot pedal wires completely disintegrated and fell apart. We figured we would use tape to salvage my son's BIG Santa gift. Christmas morning we noticed that the cymbal wires were completely pulled apart and not even attached to the connector.

It was very sad to have to explain to my small children that their big gift from santa was ruined.

What a shame that this item is still being sold with so many people experiencing the exact same issues, you'd think activision would be able to come up with a better product. Don't waste your money on this product, these are too big and not cheap to ship back and forth.

I love playing this game and it's a great party game. It has really good songs. The drums are really hard though. They're too easy on beginner but easy is ridiculous. Also, we unlocked all the songs and levels in 2 days so I wish there were more songs. If you have Xbox live you can download more songs for it but I can't help but think that they purposely have less songs on the game so that you will pay more to download more songs.

We absolutely love this game! It's something we can all do together. Even our 4yr old loves to play... she doesn't know any of the words, but w/ the beginner setting, she an still be involved. We would LOVE if they came out w/ a more recent Band Hero game. My kids would play it even more often if there more up to date songs. But overall, we are pleased with this buy. We Band Hero more than we use the Kinect!

My kids are the video gamers and me being the Mom, I usually watch. However, with Band Hero the music just pulls you in and I am now the family drummer! The whole family plays together. It is great family fun ! ...and Amazon is just great !

Please check your package when it arrives. My son opened his system on Christmas morning and the connections to the drum are all dry rotted. It must have set in the warehouse for months, possibly years.
