Very Good

Pretty Fun

If you are looking for a band sim, you will be disappointed.

This is a great game if you want to play a music game, and don't have a couple hundred to put down on needed instruments.

I did notice that once in a while, the controller froze, but you can always start that segment over. The only other downfall I thought, was that during play, if you did well, many things happen in the background that you do not get a chance to see, because you are to busy making sure you are keeping beat. Also on some songs it is very difficult to keep up on easy.

In all I wish they would make more this style, fun, without the need of expensive add-ons.

This is a lame version of any "Rock Band" or "Guitar Hero" game ever. I will admit that the editing the band members was fun, but the actul game play was lame!!! I really wanna give it a 0!!!

If you have already played RockBand or Guitar Hero, you probably will not like this game.

I play on the hard difficulty level in RockBand so when I got this game I instantly started on the hardest difficulty level which was really easy. I was kind of disappointed. If you want to play a music game that offers fun as well as a challenge your gonna want to try RockBand or Guitar Hero.

Pros:
1. You can earn play points really fast so you can buy allot of stuff.
2. Game play is very easy to learn. It has a very nice tutorial.

Cons:
1. Game is too easy.
2. There is no realistic feel of any of the instruments that I played with. Meaning, it is only a video game, you can not learn how to play an instrument from this game whereas in RockBand and Guitar hero, you can at least learn the basic concepts of how to play the drums.
3. Game content seems minimum. (Basically, it looks like you can beat the game in a few hours)
4. Had more of an arcade feel to it than a music game.
