GameTap: Battle of the Bands - Another game jumps on the bandwagon. Get it?!?

GameTap writes: "It's a rule of American business that any raging success launches a trend, as people attempt to replicate the success of the first. Guitar Hero set off a wave of rhythm game hysteria, and Battle of the Bands is the latest one to join the pack.

Battle of the Bands doesn't have a fancy peripheral; instead its gimmick is to let you choose different types of band sounds (Latin, rock, country, marching band, hip-hop), which then dictates how the songs sound when you play. In each round, you battle against a band of another sound, and the goal is to try and perform well enough that your version of the song is the one playing rather than the rival's."

The story is too old to be commented.
