    Battle of the Bands is one of those Wii games that sounds like a Good idea on paper, but when it becomes a real game you can see that the idea of the game play could use a little more work. The game h...

    Not going to take over your Guitar Hero life but it's a creative rhythm game that at least gets things half right.

    For the past 2 years Wii has been bombed with terrible rhythm games that no one likes. From the mediocre Boogie to the flat out terrible Dancing with the Stars it seems Wii can just not get with the m...

    Not that bad, but not that great either.

    Rated on May 06, 2008 by ninjamaster62

    I was anxious to play this game, because the idea sounded really cool to me. When I got it and sat down to play it, I had mixed reactions. The idea is awesome: have a bunch of popular songs redone in ...

    A poor man's Guitar Hero.

    Rated on May 20, 2008 by ping5000

    With the Guitar Hero and Rock Band franchises completely dominating America's rhythm game market, it's tough for a newcomer to stake its own niche in this genre. It has got to be refreshing and differ...

    Songs, Good. Genres, Bad

    Rated on June 11, 2008 by pokefan_10

    Unlike Guitar Hero and Dance Dance Revolution, this game is a combination of both games due to the inclusion of Hip Hop and Rock. Gameplay: Moving the Wii Remote left, right, down, forward and sha...

    Battle Of The Bands is an ok attempt at a rhythm game but is incredibly boring

    Rated on September 19, 2008 by toolzz360

    Battle of the Bands is a different take on the music rhythm game genre that is full of guitar hero's and sing stars. With that said the game may be interesting to you at first but after you start the...

    No, this isn't Guitar Hero or the best game in the world. But it's just plain fun and I've enjoyed it immensely.

    Rated on April 29, 2009 by Bonapartess

    This game has been dogged and everyone says it sucks. Granted it isn't Guitar Hero or Rock Band, nor is it the best game in the world and without flaws. But it wasn't meant to be like those other game...
