Summary: Do you have fun waving a stick for hours on end? Maybe this game is for you. Otherwise, it's not. The chief mechanic in this game is waving the remote to the beat of music, which is something you don't even need a game console to do. Really, all you do in this game is wave the remote.
Summary: We purchased this game because it was cheap and recommended for preschooler. HORRIBLE. My daughter was bored after about 10 minutes, and actually told me the game was bad. And it almost seems like the game berated the child if they messed up. Just glad we didn't pay full price for it.
Summary: I got this game because I figured it'd be a good game for my preschooler to play...simple easy...but you know what...too easy and quite boring. All you do is wave the wiimote up and down. It gets old really quick and my daughter asks to play something else.
Summary: Now, I'll admit that even thought the interface and tutorial make this game seem like it will be a cakewalk (move baton to rhythm, wave to have others join), there's a big learning curve, mainly in keeping with the proper pace so that you don't lose band members and remembering what symbol means...
Summary: I loved the idea of a marching band game, seeing as I'm in marching band. While gameplay itself is enjoyable, the plot is bland and repetitive. Thankfully after beating the game once, cutscenes can be skipped. If one has been in marching band before, forget all knowledge except timing.
Summary: My husband picked this out for my 5 and 6 year old's. We took it home and tried to play it, but they hated it. They couldn't even get past the tutorial before they were frowning and I could tell they were not having fun. Thank god we only wasted $5 on this game.

Summary: Years after comes a game for the Nintendo Wii that sports the familiar art style and emphasizing for rhythmic play from the same developers. Unlike games such as , though, Major Minor's Majestic March......is actually not good.

Summary: Though it is a TOTALLY different game, you can really feel the flavor of Parappa the Rapper in this game. It is incredibly original and innovative. Let's face it, there aren't a lot of good Wii games out there. For it's low price (I paid 10 dollars), it is worth a shot.
Summary: I bought this game for my small children to use and found it to be too difficult for them to do. You have to be exact in movement and capable of multi-functioning to get it to work right. The overall content of the game is nice except it ends abruptly.
Summary: Don't be fooled by the cutesy characters, this is not an easy game for kids! We got it for our 4 year old to play thinking he could handle it, but it's tough. With that being said, if you're into band and marching band music, it can be kinda cool. If you've got no rhythm, though, you're outta luck.
