Customer Reviews

Update broke the game!

I used to really like this game, and was excited to see an update. I downloaded the update and went on the game, pressed play, and something called the 'Hit Wheel' came up. I went along with it and spun gotta hit and watched it go up to spot 5, then skip up to 3. Then I realized that the place where the name should go was blank. It said 'debut position' as normal, then went to my band in the studio and froze and finally crashed. I tried it again, same result. Please fix this, I like this game but can't play it because of the update!

Simply amazing

I have never written a review before, but when I play this game, I know it needs recognition. You own a band and must use your band members talents to get a hit single. I know this will be in the top charts in at least a couple months!!!


Great game. This sounds a little much but it would be great if after you compose a song you can do a mini tour or concert or even press interview. Other then that this game is amazing.
