"Baddest of the Bands suffers a little from being the middle-child in the SBCG4AP series. By now, gamers who have played the past games are expecting a little more meat and originality from these episodes, which appears to finally be coming with the next episode, an all-out 70's cop-film parody, Dangeresque 3: The Criminal Projective. Like a pair of Simpsons-themed boxers, Baddest of the Bands is funny and entertaining, but feels a little restrictive, almost as if it was made for a younger audience. Considering the content of the game and the fact that we're up to Episode 3, we were hoping that the gameworld would start opening up rather than making us revisit old locations, while presenting us with samey new ones. As it stands, it's a worthy part of the series as a whole, but proves to be a weak standalone effort."
