Ok so I am a huge fan of RB and GH games so I figured I would try this out. I wish I wouldn't have because it has a horrendous selection of songs. I love all kinds of music, but this just did not cut it. The only decent ones on there were American Pie and the Taylor Swifts.. (don't judge lol). There is no one, and by that I mean not one person online at any time. Completely dead so more than likely you won't get the platinum. But the graphics were pretty amazing, although that really doesn't have much impact on the rating since it's a music based game. I didn't really have that much fun playing really.. if you are a trophy hunter I say just get it over with but if you're just a regular gamer, just stay away.
There's no need to spend $50 buying songs when you pop this game into the console. The improvements in animation are very noticeable right away and the "party" (or karaoke) functions lend a whole new aspect to the game that was missing from all previous musical simulation games.
You also have the ability to import your band-capable GH songs into BH, giving you even more selections to fool around with.
In keeping with the GH line, this title is more kid-friendly than the RB series so with the five kids in our house, this is now the preferred game among the kids, although GH5 is a close second.

Band Hero is my favorite music game (mostly because it has the songs Lifeline, Gasoline, American Pie, Fascination, Kung Fu Fighting, and Mr. Roboto). Another good aspect about Band Hero is that it is compatible with the Rock Band instrument set, and since Rock Band is the first music game I purchased, I didn't have to buy another instrument set for Band Hero. The only bad aspect about it in my opinion is that some of the songs don't really fit for a music video game (Jesse McCartney, Taylor Swift, Boy George, etc.). But besides that, Band Hero is a great music game and is a must-buy for music game-lovers.
