Главное - понять, что Band Hero - это не то же самое, что Guitar Hero. Да, внешне игры похожи как две капли воды, но предназначенны они для разной аудитории. Band Hero - для читателей "Yes! Звезды".
Band Hero is simply Guitar Hero 5 repackaged, and this is fine, but gamers should be aware of this before they think Activision has brought something new to the genre.
There’s no doubt that Band Hero is fun to play, but Activision could have had so much more to show if it had evolved it better in relation to the other Hero games.
The bottom line is Band Hero is going to be an awesome game to those who happen to fall neatly within its target demographic. However, the developers missed the opportunity to make Band Hero stand out as a unique offshoot of the main franchise with special features and additional content.
The same Guitar Hero franchise, but now it's time for Pop music. Including all features of Guitar Hero 5 with different tracklist, stages, vocalists and musicians, and inviting casual gamers to play guitars, drums, or just singing. Activision presents this new style for all kind of families, introducing real Popstars like Taylor Swift or Adam Levine as unlockable characters.
It's a game that comes across more as GH with a different musical focus, rather than as a new IP in its own right. Band Hero is far from being a bad game, but somewhere along the line it seems the new franchise's focus became a little confused.
