Band Hero is, for all intents and purposes, a Top 40 version of World Tour/GH5. The game is intended as the first family/youth-focused game in the series and will take on Lego Rock band for that segment, sporting an E-10+ rating. The advantage that LRB has is that it incorporates a “schtick” with the Lego license. Can Band Hero compete without one?

• The franchises’ first E10+ rated console game, Band Hero delivers an exciting music collection featuring top-40 hits designed to expand the experience to a new genre and appeal to a broadElectronic Theatre Image family audience who can play together on the guitar, drums, bass and microphone. The game builds upon Guitar Hero’s easy-to-play, difficult-to-master signature gameplay and allows novice players and expert fans to join together on their favourite songs.

Band Hero is an expansion game to the Guitar Hero series of music video games, due to be released by Activision on November 3, 2009 for the PlayStation 2 and 3, Wii, Xbox 360 and Nintendo DS consoles. The game is structurally similar to Guitar Hero 5, and will support full band play (lead and bass guitar, drums, and vocals) including the drop-in/drop-out and in-song instrument and difficulty change menus, and additional multiplayer modes as Guitar Hero 5.

[edit]Gameplay

See also: Common gameplay elements in the Guitar Hero series and Gameplay in Guitar Hero 5
According to Jeff Gerstmann of Giant Bomb, the game, from its first trailer, appears to be functionally similar to the features of Guitar Hero 5, including bands composed of any combination of four instruments, drop-in/drop-out play, in-song menus to change difficulty and instrument, and additional multiplayer modes compared to Guitar Hero 5's "Rockfest".[1] Taylor Swift, Adam Levine (of Maroon 5), and the band No Doubt have been confirmed to be playable avatars in the game.[2][3][4][5] Artists performed motion capture for their in-game avatars.


The "drum skin" for the Nintendo DS Lite will be used to allow Band Hero players to simulate the console-based version of drumming.
Band Hero for the Nintendo DS will feature the ability to play the same instruments as the console-based versions. Though the game is compatible with the DS, DS Lite, and DSi, only players on the DS Lite will receive the "full band" experience due to the nature of the hardware extensions for the unit. Guitar and bass parts will be played with the same "Guitar Grip" previously created for the Guitar Hero On Tour series, though this unit will not work on the Nintendo DSi due to lack of a GBA slot. The gameplay for guitar and bass is considered to be the fourth iteration of the Guitar Hero On Tour design by developers Vicarious Visions, and have further improvements to meet with different strumming styles.[6] A new "drum skin" that fits over the bottom half of the DS unit will provide four "pads" for drumming that map to the unit's directional pad and face buttons; this design was selected over use of the touch screen due to the inability of the touch screen to recognize near-simultaneous taps, a factor that would have interfered with the drumming experience.[6] The drum skin is limited to the Nintendo DS Lite due to the skin's form factor. The decision to design towards the DS Lite rather than the newer DSi was due to the much larger volume of DS Lite units that have been sold relative to the DSi.[7] The DS microphone will be used for vocal parts. The DS will have 30 of the songs from console versions. The game also supports up to four player multiplayer in a similar manner as Guitar Hero 5 using the DS's local wireless connections, allowing any combination of instruments.[8] However, there is no support for the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection nor plans for additional downloadable content for the DS game.[6]
[edit]Soundtrack

Band Hero will feature more than 65 songs from "mainstream acts", according to MSNBC.[9] The game will also allow Guitar Hero World Tour’s downloadable content to be used within Band Hero, and is expected to also use similar content for Guitar Hero 5.[1] In addition, some on-disc songs from both Guitar Hero World Tour and Guitar Hero Smash Hits will be importable into Band Hero and Guitar Hero 5 for an undetermined fee, with music licensing limiting those that can be transferred.[10] Box Art for the "Band in a Box" version of Band Hero shows that Duffy, Duran Duran, Robbie Williams & Kylie Minogue and the Spice Girls will all feature in the game as well.[11]

Sensya na, pero dagdag sakit lang to sa ulo at sa bulsa.

Sana, sana, sana talaga DLC na lang to.

Imagine, GH Smash hits, GH Metallica, GH Van Halen, Band Hero. Take all of those songs and turn them into DLC, you already have a lineup that can rival Rock band.

Naah... para sakin ok lang na stand alone game to since it has different genres of music. More of pop and alternative kasi mga songs dito unlike yung mga nasa Rockband and Guitar Hero kaya ok lang sakin.
Besides, marami naman tracks yung set list so kesa idonwload ko lahat yun at kumain pa ng sapce sa hard drive ko, eh di blihin ko na lang, ganoon din naman lalabas yung price eh. :smiley:

Besides, it's a game that I'm buying not just for myself but also for my girlfriend and sister...so I don't really mind having to shell out some cash for this, marami naman samin mag eenjoy dito unlike the other games na mostly ako lang.

And yup, it's very likely to support the instruments from both previous Rockband and Gutar Hero games! :agree:

Maybe if you already have GH5 medyo sobra sobra na nga dahil pareho lang sila ng mga bagong features... pero kaya din nga hindi pa ako bumibili ng GH5 dahil mas marami samin magugustuhan to. Besides, some of the DLCs for GH5 will probably work with this game na din!

Romeo save me I've been feeling so alone
I keep waiting for you but you never come
Is this in my head? I don't know what to think
He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring

And said, marry me Juliet
You'll never have to be alone
I love you and that's all I really know
I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress
It's a love story baby just say yes


If you could see that I'm the one who understands you
Been here all along so why can't you see?
You belong with me
You belong with me

Yun talaga ang purpose ng Band Hero. Guitar Hero gameplay pero mainstream. Wider audience. Wala bang Backstreet Boys? :bigmouth:

Quit playing games with my heart
