  Why is this not 5 star?

| | See all Rockydomimi's reviews (8)

It is an absolute bargain for a genuinly fun game. Great to play with other and on your own. I picked it up for £1.99 from a second hand shop knowing nothing about it what so ever and would recommend it to everyone.

  Very underrated

Extremely fun, slick little game.

It's pretty shallow for a full-price title...but for £4.99...the price of a magazine? It's incredible!

Great responsive controls, a nice learning curve, satisfying gameplay, genuinely amusing moments and a great selection of tunes.

As i said, it's a bit shallow but it's a brilliant party game or something to play when you have a spare half hour. Buy it.

  Sleeper hit! at sub wiiware price!

| | See all bluntpixel's reviews (5)

Time to re-evaluate this title, the £5 pricepoint it's currently at is now in Wii-ware territory. If this came out as wiiware for 1000 points it'd be the buzz de jour. Its had a harsh ride judged alongside Rockband and Guitar Hero, but it's not trying to be that all encompassing music game.

What it is, is a pick up an play pile of fun, nothing more than two wiimotes and a willing accomplice, a few beers maybe, and you too could be enjoying hearing blitzkrieg bop played by a hillbilly outfit, or be serenaded by a mariachi band playing Insane in the Brain (while launching devious attacks on your opponents riffs)

The music choices are wideranging and quite good, only one or two plodders. Hearing them arranged in alternate styles is a joy. It could do with more polish, and clearer graphics, but does have a solid gameplay core, surely worth a punt as an non off-putting entry into rhythm games. Its a great laugh.

  Best £4.99 i ever spent

The game had awesome controls. No stupid wireless guitar that makes the game £30 more just the wii remote. This is definitely a pick up and play game because i played it for 5 mins and was amazed.
Buy it for the price that they are selling it a play.com

  It all depends on what you paid for this game.

Thanks to Play I picked this up for £7.99. The game is basically poor and repetative. The graphics are not great and theres not alot to unlock and do. I've completed the 'adventure mode' which was easy. However the game is a bit of a laugh. My kids like it and I will play it now and then, and the 2 player is fun. I'm happy that I bought it as I got it cheap. I would not recommend anyone pays more than a tenner for a copy.

  Music Player is the best thing

| | See all Madcapsk83r's reviews (2)

Fair play bought the game thinking it was a cheap addition to my games library but soon found myself in stitches at how poor it actually is!!! The best thing about the game is the music player which switches some old skool classics into rock/country/marching/lating and hip hop. The rock covers a mediocre (my band would have done a better job) but the rest are amusing with the latin and country bands doing the best covers. Ah well like it has been said before keep to guitar hero 3 and the up n coming guitar hero 4 world tour looks awesome...

So dredful its hillarious. its the worse game ever. theres 3 moves and thtas it. Its a quick buck riding on the fame of guitar hero, bought by grannies and parents "because they like to play on the gameplayers" as my nan would say.

This game is Rubbish!! i played it for 5 mins and not touched it again since. Mind you that is because i used the disc as a frisbee outside in the car park. That was much more fun.
