  1. If you must play Battle of the Bands then rent it - you'll be finished with it after a day. [July 2008, p.79]
  2. THQ's Battle of the Bands doesn't look good, sound good, or feel good.
  3. Battle of the Bands takes the best elements of some recent hits and tries to combine them into something new and fun. Unfortunately, it misses the mark.

    Battle of the Bands simply has no legs. Once you’ve learned the basics of the game, there’s nowhere else to go.
  5. Maybe instead of trying to make it work with the Wii-mote, they should’ve gone with the guitar and drums. Maybe they could’ve touched up the corners on their animations, so they didn’t look so blocky.

    Takes a good tune in on RockBand but songs are tight and unapproachable. Battle of the bands is just fun but nothing else. You'll get pains in your hand and muscles but still good graphics and addictive gameplay. Not bad. Full Review »
