Summary:

Ultimate Band is composed of cover albums of two music artists and contains almost forty songs. It has three categories: Jam, Battle and Practice to unlock the mystery songs. The songs are usually old, classic and hit bands songs like Weezer and The Killers. Ideally, you can change front man’s gender for cool and funky remixes. For example, you can experiment Avril Lavigne’s way of singing. You can change the tone of her hit song Complicated into a classical song or even Maroon Five men’s band; you can change them into a high-toned voice girl group. Each background song contains sounds of chimes, claps and rings for better music blends.

Your rock band is composed of lead guitar, bass guitar, drums and a front man. Each designation has its own remote and Nunchuk to have a perfect blending of sounds. The bass guitar is responsible for guitar movements. Front man is assigned to perform a dance moves because remote is for instruments alone and you cannot sing on it. The players must do some movements like clapping, waving and punching all throughout the music song because if not, you will be disconnected in the game.

Ultimate Band has three songs for each round. You must perform well and collect awards to proceed to the next level. You use a Wii remote as musical instrument for the game. For example, in guitar, strum the remote to produce music. Usually you cannot commit music tone errors during some games when using the Wii stick, the game sometimes doesn't hit the musical notes. What's hard on it is when C and Z button are added in the game level. It is more complicated compared to others.

Each band’s music performance has equivalent scores. So, you must be alert while doing your moves because it is scored. When you are out of control of hitting the notes, move the remote in any direction. Maintaining the movement of remote can induce multiplication of scores and one way to open grandstand level for more points. It is a strategy to gain numbers of scores but then doing it is not assurance of completing the level, sometimes there is a replay of level if you are not able to acquire the score requirement.

The overall setting of Ultimate Band was really good, the band characters are can be customize from head to toe. You can buy cool stuffs like hair styles and funky outfits for your band team. The features, graphics and lead characters are animated fully. You will surely love the different rock band battle venues. From a skate parks to rock dome stage, you can rock n’ roll on the game as fret boards and meters appears on the screen game.

I think the overall flaws with the game are the controls and being limited to 40 songs, can get a bit repetitive and with the dodgy controls, i think in all honesty they have spoiled a game which could have done much better. For that there is no excuse, hence the low rating here.
