This review is from: Band Hero NDS Bundle (Video Game)
You know that phrase "If it isn't broken, don't fix it"? Well, the creators of Band Hero DS apparently didn't. Guitar Hero: On Tour was a great game for the DS, and it seemed to me like Band Hero took some of the good stuff in Guitar Hero, and made them bad. First of all, (and this will be kind of hard to explain so bear with me) but you know the area where the notes come down? Well in Guitar Hero, the background is black so that you can see the notes clearly. Not in Band Hero. The notes come down in front of a semi-clear background, so that you see the animations behind the notes, making it harder to see the notes coming down. (hope I explained this well, sorry to be so confusing). Second, (this is hard to explain too..) the songs are a lot harder then in guitar hero. Not because they are faster, but because of the way the notes are patterned. I am somebody who can 100% on even the hardest songs in expert in Guitar Hero (like the finger hurting 'Sweet Home Alabama'), but in this game the songs are just poorly made, making them harder to complete. Also, all the different meters (like the applause meter and the star power meter) are all smushed onto one screen making them ugly and illegible at times.

The one positive about this game is that the drum mode is quite fun. It's the only well designed aspect of this game, which is why I gave the game 2 instead of 1 star.
