If you liked all the Guitar Heros before this one and the music that was in those games, you probably won't like Band Hero. It is targeted much more towards the pop scene and unless you like that kind of music, chances are you will not like the game. Being an achievement lover, I liked this game for only the fact that the achievements were really easy. However, I did like a few songs, but overall the game was not too satisfying.

Another guitar hero / rockband clone. Admittedly, my wife liked the top 40 selection of taylor swift, maroon 5 etc better than the usual metalica and megadeth mix. Basically I look at all these games as a way to charge you more for just more songs with the same basic gameplay.
One thing this DOES have is a way to write your own songs although it looked to complicated for me to invest too much time into it. Albeit someone added the "VADrum meets Super mario" which got me all excited because I love that song.
So yeah, it was fun for the new selection of songs, but still another clone of the same game over and over that these guys keep getting us to buy.
At first I thought this game would only be good for its 490 point achievement and really a couple of songs, but when I played it, I really liked it. Sure it may be the pop version of Guitar Hero 5, but it's songs were really fun to play. I loved the additional items you can customize your character with as well. Really overall, if your someone who loves this kind of game, but isn't a fan of the whole rock music setlist, this game is just right for you.
