    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.

    I applaud developer Planet Moon for trying something fresh and original in the music game genre. But I have to give them a wag of the finger for treating the player like a child. Really, we can handle more than a few swings of the Wiimote.

    Battle of the Bands is pretty fun, and it’s definitely a cheaper option in the whole music game fad than the peripheral-laden titles out there, but there’s just not a lot of depth there.
  3. Battle of the Band's bizarre mashups are fun to listen to but not as much fun to play.
