MYDS: "The DS has turned out to be a great platform for rhythm-based games. The Guitar Hero series, along with its GBA-slot "guitar grip", set a standard for music titles on the handheld. Not every music title has needed an external peripheral though, with the touch-screen acting as a great tool for realistic strumming and banging of guitars and drums respectively. Ultimate Band, a good albeit short music title, uses this technique successfully, giving you the opportunity to rock out with four different instruments to a decent yet limited track listing. Ultimate Band might play well, but does it have enough talent to stay at the top of the charts?"
