Battle Of The Bands

Date: April 2008
Developer: Planet Moon Studios
Platform: Nintendo Wii
Publisher: THQ

I was in from the moment I heard the game’s working title.

To its great credit, Planet Moon Studios also had come up with a killer hook for Battle of the Bands: the game’s licensed music would shift in style depending on which of its musical groups was performing better. So you’d get, say, Def Leppard’s Photograph as rendered by a country and western band.

The soundtrack was killer. And I helped add the funny.

Fun Fact: The game’s working title was Mr. Hong’s Violent Orchestra.
