IGN writes: "I imagine most reviewers will tear Band Hero a new one for its track list, but you won't find that on my complaints list. I'm the guy who just bought Taylor Swift's second album AGAIN because they re-released it with a couple of tracks and music videos. I'm the guy who literally exclaimed "Yes!" when I unlocked Hilary Duff's "So Yesterday" in this game. I'm the guy in love with this kind of music. If you're not, you won't enjoy this game. If you are, you'll have fun here... at least for a little while."
