Game Description

More than a mere rhythmic rumble, Battle of the Bands for Wii is all-out musical warfare. The game features 30 hits from current to classic, all recorded in five distinct styles - rock, funk/hip-hop, country, Latin, and marching band - giving you 150 tracks to choose from. Fight for musical supremacy in your preferred musical style using unconventional instruments including sniper violins and flame-throwing guitars. A single-player campaign has you lead your choice of 11 bands against the evil big boss, Mr. Hong. Versus Mode centers around music switching, in which the style of the winning band momentarily overrules the loser, until the trailing band battles back to turn the tide.
