Excerpt: Family Friendly Gaming has commended Nintendo for their innovations, and family friendly fun video games. Wii Music considers that tradition quite nicely. I have to admit I was skeptical after seeing this game at E3 in the year of our Lord 2008.
Wii Music Solves The "It's Got Too Many Notes" Problem
22 September 2009
Conclusion: Concept: Make a music game, but dispense with all that ''skill'' and actual gameplay nonsense
Graphics: Utilizes Miis in simple environment. Fans of Wii Sports will be right at home
Sound: Random public domain folk and classical songs, Muzak versions of lightweight pop tunes, and some Nintendo theme...
Summary: Ever wanted to play ''Little Hans'' or ''The Entertainer'' in a video game? Well now you can. Wii Music's song list contains 30 public domain hits, 13 ''contemporary'' tunes, and 7 Nintendo themes.
Excerpt: Wii Music is without doubt the trickiest game to review that Nintendo has released. The problems are numerous, with the game seemingly too complex for kids, too simple for experts, not educational enough for wannabe musicians and not enough of a game for everyone else.

The lack of online play is a little disappointing, but in general, the game is very accessible and even gamers of younger demographics will be able to pick up their trusty...
Conclusion: Overall, other player’s feelings towards Wii Music will largely depend on what they believe constitutes a modern video game. If you believe games are non-competitive ways to express yourself and where not much effort is required, then you will probably love Wii Music.
Excerpt: You there! Are you an objective-reliant gamer, unable to gain satisfaction when deprived of an arbitrary win-lose state? Then Wii Music probably isn't for you. You there! Are you slave to artificial parameters designed to shunt you along a linear path of repetition in the name of illusionary...
Conclusion: Wii Music is not for everybody. There are no strict rules, you can't lose, and there's no rating system for how well you play through a song. If you're a big fan of Rock Band or Guitar Hero, you're going to be happier just sticking with what you've already got.
Excerpt: One of the reasons behind the massive success of Nintendo’s Wii console has been how well they have marketed towards those who only casually play video games, or those who might never have played a game at all.
