Hahah what a great thread, makes me all warm and fuzzy inside knowing so many "gamers" hate this game and how much it have sold.
I bet not even a 1/4 you have even played this game adn you who have can't have played it more then 1-2 hours and then finding out it was too hard for you.
this, Wii Music is first game for trully hardcore gamers that can spend hundreds hours on this title to achieve somethin. i have this game for a few months already and i still didn't master even 1/4 of the instruments and this is the game i spended most time since i bought it.
game was trashed only by reviewers who didn't know how to play this game cause there was plenty good and gread reviews of this game.
Bad reviews by people who obviously didn't know how to play this game:
"While it is a good way for individuals to learn different musical styles, Wii Music lacks the simplicity and vicarious thrills of "Guitar Hero" and "Rock Band," and likely won't attract nearly as many groupies."
Game Informer 3/10:
"Thank God. Now I can stop pretending that I was having fun rocking out to Metallica and live my dream of playing backup cowbell in a cruise ship band version of “Yankee Doodle.”"
"Make a music game, but dispense with all that “skill” and actual gameplay nonsense" - makes me wonder since when skill in music games means pushing the buttons as fast as possible wihout even knowing why or having a slightest thing called rhythm?
"Ever wanted to wave your arms around to the polyphonic ringtones on your phone? Me neither. Welcome to the world of Wii Music."
Game Revolution 2.5/10:
"But really, there’s no point to my taking Wii Music seriously as a game since Nintendo obviously doesn’t. If the game sells well, it probably has more to due with Nintendo’s tremendously effective marketing skills rather than anything inherent to Wii Music as a game. Even five-year-olds need some stimulation and sense of achievement. Wii Music provides neither."
good reviews by people who actually played the game and gave it a chance before calling it a crap from the beginning:
"Wii Music may have a hard time winning over the skeptics who just want to laugh at it, but give the game the chance it deserves. You just might realize it's pretty damn fun being in on the joke."
"Give Wii Music a try if you're growing lethargic of repeating the same songs in the same way over and over -- you might learn something about how music composition works, and you may discover your more creative side. Compared to other games of the genre and casual games in general, Wii Music is really more of a basic creative canvas than a "melt-your-fingers-off" game, but it enables its players to do a lot with a little and to do it nearly however they want -- it pulls this all off with a relative amount of finesse, too."
"The game is a great learning tool for the musically inexperienced. It teaches rhythm and music composition, and helps foster creativity. Its focus is totally different from the more typical rhythm games, and it accomplishes its goal. However, the game is not meant for solo play and isn't really suited for the more musically apt, either."
