The first time I played this game was on June 26. It was awesome! I don't have it yet, but I am not getting it until the 9th. Have fun playing this game!
Wii Puke It
Okay, for those of You who think Wii music is a Nintendo substitute for Guitar Hero, think again. My friend bought this game only to return it in a few hours. If you look at how Nintendo is advertising it, it seems good. "You can play a variety of songs, including the mario theme, and a variety of latin music." LIES. You can rock out to "twinkle twinkle little star", "Yankee doodle went to town" and the mario theme. OH, Thats Real fun to last for YEARS, I'M SO PSCHYED. (and sarcastic). Even Miyamoto, the leader of Nintendo for those who don't know, could not play the mario theme. Now I imagine that all you people are going, YES A GAME WITH A CHALLENGE...WRONG! The reason THE DEVELOPER could not play it because the controls and interface stinks. There is no rythmatic structure, no note indication, and you just bang on things! I would reccomend this game for 4yr olds, old people, and people who like banging on things. No one else. If you wanna blow 50 something bucks on this game, be my guest. but be warned....
Think of it like this:
Guitar Hero...on the Wii-Mote. Conducting an orchestra looks awesome. I've always wanted to conduct classic video game music (Zelda FTW)! The drums look decent. From the showing at E3, it looks like they need to put a little more work into it, though the Wii-Mote and Nunchuck are used as drumsticks and are fairly accurate, actually. But then it gets down to the trumpet...and sax...and other instruments that would, in reality, require you to blow air. All you have to do is press the few buttons on the Wii-Mote and you're already playing in tune! There is NO way you can mimic the feel of a real instrument that requires you to blow air with a Wii-Mote. That is awful. Way too easy to just press four or five buttons. You know, here's what I recommend. If you want to be able to play great songs on an instrument in a game, go buy Ocarina of Time and mess around on the Ocarina because that's what Wii-Music seems like (with the exception of conducting and drums)!
This game is pretty good
For all of you out there who are trashing Wii Music, I just want to say that the game wasn't made for everyone. Wii Music is based on littler kids and people who have an interest in music. The graphics are pretty much like any Wii game with the word Wii in the title. The sound is pretty good, although some of the intstruments like the trumpet could use some touch-ups on the sound. The controls are simple. You eithers press the 1 and 2 buttons, strum like you're playing the guitar, making a drumming imitation, or a motion where you're playing the violin. There are things I disagree with in the game. The responsiveness in like for example Mii Miastro are horrible. Whenever I try to make the band play faster they're always playing three times slower than I'm trying to conduct. The song variety I can say is pretty good. You have to remember, there aren't going to be songs like Guitar Hero puts on theirs. Overall the game is pretty good. I would recommend Wii Music to any child or anyone who has a passion for music like me.
Don't Be Rediculous
I own Wii music I have to say tat it is not nearly as bad as some reviews that have been posted about it. Some people are being downright rediculous. You can only play twinkle twinkle little star because you need to unlock song by doing some of the games. The graphics aren't that bad. I own an Xbox 360 on an HD tv so I would know good graphics when I see them. The sound is fine. I have no problem with it. The only reason people are having trouble with it is because you are not putting the sensor bar in the right place. This game is somewhat challenging if you actually play the games. There is this one where you have to play the bells when they go across the screen. I have trouble with it and I can play Guitar Hero on expert. I wouldn't necessarily say this game is for little kids. I have spent hours just playing the different instruments and I am fifteen! I was just wanting to clear up that this game is not nearly as bad as people say. Half of them are talking about what their friends think o fit and have probably never even played the game.
Stop comparing it to Guitar Hero!
This game is a blast! My husband and I absolutely love it. We're both seasoned gamers, and we still found this game a delight. Anyone who's hoping this is another Guitar Hero or Rock Band, look elsewhere. Anyone else up for good clean fun, this is the game for you. It allows for tons of silliness, yet still provides a challenge. This is a game the whole family could get in to. I will recommend to play this game with at least one more person, as that makes the game even more fun. Plus, who hasn't wanted to play a solo in a dog suit? I did find the little tutor to be annoying, but who doesn't find tutorials to be a little needless? There is also not a big opening selection of music and instruments. But then again, that's the point. You start out with the basics and work your way up! Again, if you're hoping it's another Rock Band, keep moving. But if you're looking for a music game with something different to offer, give this a try.
I loved it!!!!!!!
Wii Music is a great game. I only rented the game but I loved it and am going to buy it soon. I am learning how to play the drums right now and it is very cool. A neat thing about wii music is that when you are playing the different instruments such as the drums you feel like you are really doing it. In wii music there is so much to do. You can play any of the 60 instruments that there is to chose from. Such as the Trumpet, Saxophone, and my favorite the Drums. You can also be the conductor in the game mode. One of the "Tutes" (which is another mii) teaches you how to play different instruments. You can also do what is called "Custom Jam" which is where you can change the tempo and things of songs such as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. I made that song Twinkle Twinkle Little Star into a rock song. Overall I think that wii music is a great game and I would recommend it to anyone who asks me no matter what your ability level is.
Can you spell underrated?
This game, like every other game, does have its flaws. For those of you who love to play Through The Fire and Flames on expert in Guitar Hero 3, this game will NOT be for you, since it has little to no actual challenge, besides personal bests. Despite this, Wii Music is an extremely fun and simple game to play. There are surprisingly a variety of modes to play, the one that every one knows is the Jam Session. It is what it is. You play a song with a band on virtually any instrument you want. The next best mode (in my opinion) is the Handbell Harmony, where you have 2 specific handbells, and you play those 2 through the entire song. Sort of like Guitar Hero or Rock Band, but with only 2 notes. The next mode is a simple mini game, called Pitch Perfect, which sets you up with a variety of challenges, from just matching the pitch to matching a song. All in all, this is a surprisingly entertaining game. If you just like to kick back and have a good time, this is the game for you, but if you'd prefer a stupifying challenge, I'd go back to Rock Band and Guitar Hero.
Music to my ears
When I planned to get this game, I thought it would be okay. But once you start to play it, you can't help but smile. The range of instruments, games, stages, and songs are a wonderful reason to get this game. You can create your own album, customize your band, and even learn drum lessons if you have Wii Fit. Classical Songs and famous songs are available, and Nintendo songs too. You can play each part of the band at a time, then mush-em' together to hear your creation. Three games are also available such as conducting an orchestra, ringing bells at different times, and guessing pithes of different instruments. The ads say over 60 instruments, but there is probably over 100. The only flaw in this game is that there is no story line. After you record your performance and make an album, the game gives your band a name and you can watch the performance. Overall, this is a terrific game, and I advise you to buy it.
Self- Expression to the Max
This game is awesome. This game is not intended to be another Guitar Hero or Rock Band. This game is about expressing yourself in a way that you want to. Whether its playing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star as a metal band, or playing Super Mario Bros. Video Game style, its all up to you. Sure, the songs aren't the best, but the game makes up for that by being able to play whatever you want. When you play a song, you can get a note sheet if you want to play the actual song, but the game goes to great lengths to make sure you improvise in a way that fits your style of music. The makers also put in the Wii Balance Board into the game as well. If you have the Wii Balance Board, you can play an actual drumset by using the nunchuck and wiimote. This game is very fun. This game is NOT for Guitar Hero only players. This is for people who like to express themselves in a way that they like.
