Okay game but not for younger kids

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.
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. I even found it hard to control, and if an adult has trouble with the game, how are children expected to be able to play it?
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. I think it might do us better as a coaster now.
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. My husband tried to play it for 5-10 minutes but its just dull...wish I wouldn't have paid full price for it...want it? Get it used...
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. It gets old after about a minute. This is a classic example of the type of gimmicky game that the Wii can be known for.
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 what when seeing who you're going toofast/slow for.
MARCH MARCH KEEP ON MARCHING. KEEEEP OOONN MAAARRCCCCHHHING!!!

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. The songs are good marching band songs, the characters have funny names (like GGGG), the controls are hilarious (and accurate), and the voicing/script is hilarious.
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. If the Wii remote with motion plus is hard to use with this game (ours is a Wii motion plus) and the game is marketed for a young audience it's not worth five stars in my opinion.
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. The way to hold the Wiimote to make it happy is a skill to be learned, like a guitar player picking up rock band.
Summary: I bought this game for a bargain price off Amazon over Christmas. I'd actually been trying to find it in shops since release and had no luck at all. I had high hopes for this game being from the Nana-on-Sha studio, behind such classics as Parappa the Rapper and Un Jammer Lammy on the Playstation. As the main star of the show Major Minor you have to lead your marching band from point A to point B.
