Band Hero est au final une version très légèrement remaniée de Guitar Hero. Il aurait ainsi pu s'appeler Guitar Hero Pop Hits sans problème puisque c'est surtout par sa playlist qu'il se distingue de ses cousins germains. On note malheureusement peu de nouveautés, en dehors du mode Choeurs qui permet aux amateurs de karaoké de s'éclater comme dans un Singstar. La famille peut se laisser tenter sans risque !
Playstation Illustrated
In the end, the PS2 version of Band Hero can be seen as either a stripped-down version of Band Hero or a re-skinned mainstream version of Guitar Hero with Choreography. Either way, the load times are hard to forgive. If you have a PS2 (and that's all you have) and you like Guitar Hero games conceptually but prefer the music in Band Hero, then this is the game for you. If, however, you have a more recent system or plan to get one in the near future, you should get the PS3, 360 or Wii version. There are a lot of features out there... they're just not in here.
Band Hero (Band Kit) on the PlayStation 2 is $179.99, and that’s ridiculous. By picking this iteration up over the other versions, you’d save $20 but miss out on boatloads of content that make Band Hero fun. Yes, the track list is solid if you like questionable music like I do, but you’re getting the very basics of a multiplayer band game here. You can do better.
