CheatCC says, "Band Hero was a great idea that suffers from dismal execution. Multiple poor design choices have led to a game that is utterly flawed. While there is still a good deal of fun to be had if you own a DS Lite, I'm bamboozled as to why the game is so limited in scope and not more inclusive of other systems and more extensive in terms of game modes. To go from bad to worse, this game retails for $49.99 - quite a pretty penny. It's a real shame this game doesn't live up to its potential. I expect good things from this off-shoot IP in the future, but as it stands now, I simply can't recommend it."
