  1. The drums are the most fun, but least challenging.
  2. Realistic instruments and an easy-to-use set of creation tools are innovations that should become common across all rhythm games. While only players who are able to overcome the painfully shortened and poorly vocalized set list will truly enjoy the title, all fans of the genre will find something to like.
  3. This could have been a great game, but the very short song list and the insufficient multiplayer-part really drags it down.
  4. 70
    Ultimate Band DS won't suit anyone looking for a hardcore music experience, even on the DS.
  5. Ultimate Band for NDS is an original musical game with great variety, but not in songs. It is not good like the Guitar Hero experience, but it has a funny multiplayer mode and the option to let us create our tunes in the music studio.
  6. 67
    It's telling that my main criticism of Band is its meager song count, as it's a feat for any game that actually made me love jamming to Fall Out Boy.
  7. Ultimate Band is Disney's latest effort to create a worth-buying game. This time we have a very simple musical composition that lacks a bad an original gameplay system. Its a good game for children, but stay away from it if you're a Guitar Hero or a Rock Band fan.
