Ever see your big brother or sister play Guitar Hero and wanted a piece of the action, but with songs that you'd rather play to? Well, here comes Band Hero, a spinoff from the hugely popular music game series that features a ton of somewhat more radio-friendly artists. Chart-topping favourites such as Taylor Swift, No Doubt, Lily Allen, The All-American Rejects and the Jackson 5 can be found in this bundle of happy musical joy.

Feel free to jump in and out of play as you please, with a seamless gameplay mechanic that allows would-be singers to start their role even after a song has been chosen by the band, by a simple button press. And you may find you'll need all the help you can get, as Band Hero's RockFest mode challenges players with tasks of varying difficulty that can be accomplished with four players locally and eight players when jamming online.

Tons of rewards are yours to obtain if you're good enough. Capturing 'Band Moments' - nailing important sequences in the song with pinpoint accuracy - will earn you multipliers and really gets the crowd going, as you truly feel like you're part of a big bad band!

The Nintendo Wii version of Band Hero features some exclusive connectivity features with the Nintendo DS. Anyone in the room who has a Nintendo DS that isn't playing the game itself will be able to connect to the Wii and change the band's set list on the fly. A new Mii Freestyle Stage Manager lets DS owners control the stage production as the band rocks out with their Mii characters.

Controllers from past Guitar Hero games can be used with Band Hero, and if you're wanting to start a band from scratch you can also purchase a bundle pack including all the plastic replica music equipment you need. Get your sisters, brothers, parents and grannies and 'rock'-- er, 'pop' the world!
