Wii Music has gotten a bad rap online since it launched, and I must say that part of it is warranted. This isn’t the be-all, end-all music game that Nintendo wants it to be. It takes allot of imagination to play, and a little forgiveness for it’s foibles, but it can be fun. Just don’t go into it expecting Rock Band Wii, and you’ll be in the right frame of mind.
As for how much fun it is, that depends on who you play with. Playing by yourself with the Tutes can be fun, but playing with others can be frustrating. Of course, that’s only if you get serious about the music. If you’re just here to have fun, you and a group of buds can have a great time making a racket and trying to sound like you know what you’re doing.
There are a few side modes, but they’re not really much fun. The conducting mini game is basically waggling in time with the song, and the Pitch-Perfect mode is both boring and a pain.
In the end, however, I do recommend this for young gamers and those who don’t or can’t play the more ‘hardcore’ games. Even serious gamers like myself can have fun if they don’t take everything too seriously. Like I said, don’t expect Rock Band or Guitar Hero; just enjoy what’s here. It’s a fun toy, but not a great game. Alphasim out.
