The title of the latest game
in the Hero franchise is a little misleading. Band Hero sounds like a new
direction for the franchise, a completely new brand. But other Hero games
already include a full band (World Tour, Guitar Hero 5, Metallica). It's a
strange title for a game that's basically Guitar Hero 5-2. Band Hero uses the
same framework and ideas as GH5, just with less hard rocking and a lot more
That's not to say that the entire setlist comes from
current pop radio. You still have rock classics like "Bad Reputation" from Joan
Jett and '90s hits like "Two Princes" from The Spin Doctors. But the special
appearances in this game are decidedly more modern, with Taylor Swift and Adam

hard to gauge pitch on. And, as a Hero game, even the lower difficulties are a
little too punishing, which stands out even more in an increasingly
casual-oriented franchise like this. I have friends who were frustrated by Band
Hero's Medium setting, but who can competently play through Rock Band's games on
Hard. It's not really a problem, but Band Hero also has 20 fewer songs on its
tracklist (65 versus GH5's 85).
