Sure, if you can afford the plastic peripherals to play Guitar Hero and Rock Band, go for it. Even though they are dropping in price nowadays, Ultimate Band still deserves consideration by people wanting to try those titles' rhythm game play but at a budget price. Bratz-characters aside (the eyes…what’s with the freakin eyes?!?!), what you get for your buck is a well-produced and well-presented game with quite a nice tracklist (some even originals, if I remember) and addictive game play. Using the Wiimote and nunchuck as an air-guitar, air-drumsticks or an air-bass feels quite intuitive and immersive. I never tried the frontman-mode, though, as you are not actually singing but expected to wave the Wiimote around like an idiot to entice the audience...lame! You also get a host of customization options for your characters, online leaderboards and some fun mini-games through in the mix. Not bad for a budget-title. One you can enjoy with your child, or with the child within you...without plastic instruments littering up your gamesroom!
