Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Music games featuring expensive instrument shaped controllers are becoming commonplace in video games, but Nintendo’s new Wii Music promises to let you simulate more than 60 different instruments with nothing more than the Wii remote and nunchuck.
Make music in multiple environments
Up to four people can play at once, plus other accompanying Miis
There’s no need for expensive peripherals in this music game
Songs range from classical to rock to remixed Nintendo tunes

Unlike other music games, you don’t follow any onscreen icons but instead mime along to the music by holding the remote like a real instrument and pressing the buttons in time with the song. So, for example, when you’re playing saxophone you hold the remote vertically and press the buttons as you would on the real thing.

There are several game modes, but in most you play as part of a six-person band, either playing along with friends or controlling up to four of the band members at once on your own. Since no musical experience is necessary, all you need is a sense of rhythm and you can play any instrument available.

Key Features
  • Music store: Simulate more than 60 different instruments, including guitar, violin, piano, drums, trumpet, maracas, and cowbell.
  • Drumming up interest: An advanced drum simulator allows you to use remote and nunchuck as drumsticks and the Balance Board from Wii Fit as the drum pedals.
  • Orchestral maneuvers: If you don’t want to play an instrument you can take the role of conductor and swing the remote like a baton.
  • Band together: Play with and against up to four friends, each of you playing a different instrument, or challenge the game alone with computer controlled bandmates.
  • Show tunes: Learn a wide range of different tunes from the Overture from Carmen to the themes from Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda.
About the Developer: Nintendo EAD Software Group No. 2

4.0 out of 5 stars Misunderstood! 21 Nov 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is my first Amazon review, after reading alot about Wii Music - and reading the reviews on here, I felt compelled to post my thoughts.

This game is nothing like Guitar Hero/Rock Band, so best to put those thoughts aside immediately.

What it is, is more musically challenging. At its core, GH/RB are just pressing a button that corresponds to a note on the screen. If you dont press it, you start to fail = no creativity.

With Wii Music, you CAN get different notes out of the instruments, by practice and experimentation.

Basically, when you play the 'Custom Jam' mode (1-4 simultaneous players), after selecting your instrument part (from a choice of 60), you then start to play your part of the song in the band. You can play by 'ear', or by pressing the - key, you get a note chart. This note chart is a key feature, especially for the beginners. If you 'play' your instrument when the note chart indicates, you will get the right note for that time in the song and carry on doing so will see you complete the song as intended.

Doing this is hard enough at first (each song is graded 1-3 stars in difficulty) and it can be a bit frustrating as mis-timed notes begin to sound like a real-mismash of noise.

Stick with it though and you'll be completing the songs fine.

Now you can start to customise the song to YOUR style and begin the creative process. For example, if playing the guitar part and 1 note is coming up, by holding DOWN on the d-pad, you can enable quick strumming, so 1 note becomes 10 - 5 notes before and 5 after the 'charted' note. The game will then pick the right notes and pitch etc for that part of the song.

Other examples are holding 'c' to play a chord instead of a note, 'z' to palm-mute notes etc etc.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wii Music plays a 'B Flat' 14 Nov 2008
By Picard TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I love music. I DJ, produce my own tracks, have a garage full of old keyboards (yes, I'm a saddo!) and record interesting sounds... Like alot of people, I guess music's my life, but theirs always room for fun elements to my work and play. So it came as a big surprise when I saw the Wii Music ad on TV.

OK, so this isn't trying to compete with Ableton, Logic Studio, or daftly any other software, This is Nintendo's apparent fun take on making some music on your Wii at their usual fair price. And fair do's to them! Theirs already Guitar Hero and the alike out, so how does Nintendo's approach fair?

It's a mixed bag, to say the least.

Presented under a plush card case that's very funky, it sends all the signals that this would be ideal for Christmas. Even the release date, a month ahead of the maddest time of year, suggests they want this to be a gift to which alot of people can relate to.

An induction session (similar to most of Nintendo's own Wii games) takes you through the 3 main different ways of using the Nunchuk and Wii Remote. Suffice to say, all 3 are genuinely easy to pick and make sense, using a combination of buttons and movements. Unfortunately, a little of the 'spark' is lost once you realise that you don't need to hold the Nunchuk and Remote in the exact position it tells you to, which already signals a pulling factor for a younger audience who won't think of such things. Hopefully!

Jam, Videos, Games, and Lessons make up the main menu, and each accordingly do what they say.

The Jam mode is essentially the core of the game; made up of Improvise, Custom Jam and Quick Jam.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's just a game, don't take it to seriously! 24 Nov 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have read the other reviews on here and note the points made but i have got to say are you taking it to seriously? My family have had this game two weeks now and we are still playing it. So, why have i given it five stars? Its the simplicity and ease of the game for everyone that makes it so enjoyable. No one has any musical talent in our family (No one can read music or play an instrument!)however, that does not matter. The game talks you through everything with a nice and easy tutorial that gives you the basics of a song and what goes into it, such as the bass, the melody, percussion and so on. Once you have learnt these basics you can put them together in jam sessions using yourself for every part of the band! How good is that. You can even decide what style your band is going to play by selecting the instruments to get the right sound. An example of this is to make your songs sound red neck style by using the banjo, uckele and the marching drum. Or form your own string quartet and play some classics. When you have finished your track you can save it as your very own video. There are also the mini games, handbells being the most fun with four of you playing. the other mii's looks when you get a note wrong put you to shame. I'll admit now that I am a FPS fan myself but this game is ideal for the wii and it's unique use of the remotes linked to it's bias towards family games. Imagine this, a french nursery rhyme, sur la pont d'avignon, played by a heavy rock band with a cheerleader as the singer, performed on a balcony, what a laugh!
