Major Minor's Majestic March

Family Friendly Gaming
11 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Majesco Entertainment has a great recent track record with video games for the entire family. I was very excited to get to play Major Minor’s Majestic March on the Wii. Players get to take control of a cute cat character who wants to conduct a band in a world where being in front of a marching band is highly honored.  He is guided by a friend to a magical baton that his great, great grandma Gladiola used.

Parappa and Umjammer's Creator Can't Save this Travesty

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Excerpt: As a huge PaRappa and Um Jammer Lammy fan, I was very excited about this reunion of designer Masaya Matsuura and artist Rodney Alan Greenblat. What the hell happened? The game starts by casting you as a cartoon drum major who leads a marching band through town by moving the Wii remote up and down to the beat like a baton. Unfortunately, that's where it ends, too. This is the shallowest game design I've seen in years.

Boring, finicky controls hamper marching sim.

Common Sense Media
12 September 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that in spite of its colorful and kid-friendly veneer, the game's finicky controls will likely frustrate kids rather than engage them. There's no objectionable content.

Major Minor's Majestic March Review

Cheat Code Central
11 September 2009
  • Conclusion: This is one of those games I'm loath to be critical of; it has so much going for it. The art style is beautiful, and the aural presentation is just out of this world - one of the best soundtracks on Wii so far. The gameplay, too, teeters on being very satisfying, but input recognition is all over the place. The game is obviously aimed at kids ages six to 10, and they'll likely struggle with it.

Major Minor's Majestic March

Video Game Generation
30 May 2009
  • Summary: It's hard not to like Major Minor's Majestic March due to the appealing artwork and excellent selection of marching music, but the basic gameplay and short length really hurt its long-term appeal and replay value.  Overall Major Minor's Majestic March is an excellent rental, but no more than that unless you find it really cheap.
  • Pros: Greenblat's artwork is appealing., An excellent selection of marching band standards., The controls are simple, but work well.
  • Cons: This game is very short, and playing through the entire beginner level is required to unlock the multiplayer modes., Even when unlocked, those two multiplayer modes don't add a whole lot to the experience.

Major Minor`s Majestic March

Game Over Online
25 May 2009
  • Excerpt: Major Minor’s Majestic March marks the return of the creative team from the PaRappa the Rapper series - game designer and musician Masaya Matsuura and artist Rodney Alen Greeblat. At quick glance you might even call Major Minor the spiritual successor to PaRappa. The two games share a good deal in common with one another, from the animated plants and animals that inhabit their respective worlds to the rhythm and music-reliant gameplay, only Major Minor doesn’t pull it...

Major Minor's Majestic March

  • Excerpt: Music games have become all the rage these days. From the likes of Rock Band, Guitar Hero, Lips, Sing It!, and DDR, developers have managed to let diehard gamers play as a band, belt out tunes like a rock star, or dance like mad to the beat. I find it somewhat amazing how many ways one can take music and make an interactive game out of it.

Major Minor's Majestic March (Wii) - Review

VGChartz
1 May 2009
  • Excerpt: By Alex Machuca Before delving into Major Minor’s Majestic March, I often found myself curious as to why the game had seemed to rarely be in the public spotlight. Obviously, the game wouldn’t appeal to everyone’s tastes given the family-friendly art style and atmosphere presented, and the fact that trendy flavors and modern hits prevalent in your standard Rock Band and Guitar Hero offerings were substituted for a variety of classic marching band themes could alienate a...

Major Minor's Majestic March (Wii)

Crispy Gamer
9 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Imagine if NanaOn-Sha's classic rhythm action game PaRappa the Rapper had involved doing nothing but tapping the X button over and over and over again to a 2/4 beat. Pretty lame, right? Replace tapping X with moving the Wii Remote up and down and you've essentially got Major Minor's Majestic March , an ignoble and disappointing follow-up to PaRappa (and its less-well known but equally kick-ass spin-off, UmJammer Lammy ).

6 April 2009
  • Excerpt: From the makers of PaRappa the Rapper and Um Jammer Lammy comes another off-beat rhythm game, but this time, it uses the Wiimote to cast the player as a marching band's drum major. Does Major Minor's Majestic March match my must-play model?
