Great music choices...see my update
on December 7, 2009
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.
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.
