Wii Music (Wii)


Wii Music is fun. It's fun even though you don't actually play music. It's fun even though it's not really a game, and it's fun even though it's not a good value, either. Very young children (from 3 to 6 years of age) will probably get the most out of...

A play-along music game simple enough for everyone – like it or not

60 instruments, including "dog" and "cat ; You can record yourself ; Classic Nintendo themes

Little reason to keep playing ; Lame song list ; Poor sound quality

So what are we left with? A music game with such a strong auto-pilot that you don’t usually do much, and what you do doesn’t really matter or look or sound all that cool. It’s a fair party game - there’s a certain novelty charm to seeing a roomful of...

Wii Music Review


Despite a wealth of instruments, Nintendo's Wii Music is out of tune.

Wii Music


Younger gamers will love it; core gamers will wonder why it exists.

Clean presentation; extremely user-friendly; directly targeted at young, casual audience

The more traditional "hardcore" gaming audience will simply not care about the experience it offers

The Jam mode is broken down into instrument improv, quick jam, and custom jam. Improv lets you test out instruments on their own without musical accompaniment, while quick jam randomly selects a song and a stage backdrop for quick access. Custom jam...

Nintendo Wii - Wii Music E3 2008 Preview


Many remember Mr. Miyamoto making a grand entrance in the 2006 iteration of E3 conducting an orchestra with naught but a Wiimote. While the Chicago Symphony Orchestra features about 20 instruments, Wii Music will feature over 50 different instruments....

Despite earlier rumors, Wii Music still has yet to hammer down a solid release date, but after at least two years in the limelight, you can be sure Nintendo will announce it soon. Be sure to check back into Gamer 2.0 for all your latest E3 coverage

Imagine a cooking show that showed you what to do, and then could see you doing it. The game could offer helpful advice on how to stir, or slice. Think about a sermon where you interact with the pastor while learning about the Holy Bible. Nike+ Kinect...

WII MUSIC is the typical crap product from Nintendo  following Wii Fit and the plethora of Chinese made, lead lined plastic attachments littering homes for the system.

Nice, innovative piece of software. Can keep you entertained for couple of hours (and you can show off with drums-balance board with your mates). Kids will like it

what a shame, this could have been so good, mindless and immature.

Wii Music - Nintendo Wii review - Pocket-lint


A worthy performance?

Fun for all the family, easy to pick-up: a challenge to master, plenty of laughs to be had

Wii Music follows in the vein of many Wii games, it delivers cutsey characters, plenty of interactive options and great laughs for multiple players

Product Specifications

Wii Music includes many other modes besides the main band jams, including several musical games and an enhanced video playback mode for recorded jams. Create a musical masterpiece with up to four players. Anyone can play the huge selection of instruments in Wii Music with simple motions - like strumming and drumming. It's easy to play improv jams. Musicians in your band jam by simply playing their instruments to the beat of a song or by improvising to their heart's content. Play faster. Play slower. Skip a beat, or throw in 10 more. No matter what you do, Wii Music automatically transforms your improv stylings into great music. There are no mistakes - just playing for the pure joy of playing. Wii controls immerse you in the music. You can play most of the 60-plus instruments in Wii Music using simple motions with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers. Strum to play guitar, banjo and sitar. Drum to play jazz drums, congas and marching drums. Hammer away to play piano, vibraphone and marimba. Unlike most music games, Wii Music doesn't make you use complex buttons. You only need to imitate playing the instrument. Wii Music offers virtually endless ways to make music. You choose the song and instruments and decide whether to blaze through a rock take on classical songs, put a jazzy spin on folk tunes or transform Nintendo classics like the Super Mario Bros. theme into Latin-flavored numbers. The song list is only a takeoff point - it's how you improvise with the songs that matters. Send your band-jam recordings to Wii Friends who have Wii Music. They'll see your Mii band members, your players' improv styles and your instrument selections. They can watch your recordings, or play over parts of your song, then send their modified recording back to you. Improv jams can be sent back and forth over WiiConnect24 and changed again and again.
