Honestly, both Wii Music and Wii Sports Resort have pretty much missed the mark in terms of any target audience.

The problem with Wii Sports Resort is that its not fun to anyone. I couldn't see anyone I know who games/doesn't game currently who would actually want to play it for more than 5 minutes. Give us Wii Sports 2 with network play and slightly deeper controls tweaked for motion+ instead! Give us our Halo 2 with network play and take it to the next level.

The problem with Wii Music is that it will never be truely engaging on the same level as Guitar Hero/Rock Band unless they involve the senses. Since they cannot replicate the feel of a guitar then perhaps they should have replicated the look. Including Stereoscopic (3d) Glasses and designed the game so the instruments like the drums come out to you could easily replace the kinesthetic feel of the drums and at a lower cost too. That would make the game engaging rather than making you feel like you're waving your arms at a distant image from the TV.


 wii sports resort is wii sports 2. and the whole thing is biult about wii motion plus! it come packaged with the game.  network play but would a nice add on but not something i see being regularly used.

Perhaps im wrong about Wii Sports Resort, I do feel that Wii Sports would be excellent with a revamp giving people network play and improving the controls/interface a little. Its just that every time I play it, I want to go online and play against someone as good/better than me. Theres noone in my house who can keep up! I have to play with my left hand and sometimes my foot to make it fair.  Motion+ would definately help get the spin on the ball.


as for wii music, no i wont say it looks like a great game but neither is it like guitar hero. its more of a tool to creat and mix your own songs, probably with games thrown in. kinda like wii fit which was a tool to lose weight with some games thrown in. now i thought wii fit was gnna be crap but it ended up being pretty damm good (80 on metacritic) so i will reserve judgement on wii music. Im pesemistic tho

The issue is not that its a good/bad game to play. Its more that the interface between the user and the Wii is lacking IMO. With guitar hero you buy the interface and you get that visual/kinesthetic engagement. With Wii Music there isn't any such engagement. I think its a concept thats either too soon or not given due dilligence. Thats why I believe that making the game 3d would give the players the engagement of Guitar Hero without the cost of the peripherals.
