So, this comes out next week (I think).  I was kind of hoping it would be lame, so I wouldn't have to get it.  Apparently not.  1Up slapped it with an A-.

Wii Music may have a hard time winning over the skeptics who just want to laugh at it, but give the game the chance it deserves. You just might realize it's pretty damn fun being in on the joke.

I'm looking forward to this. Seeing the latest preview from IGN has me thinking it won't be given a fair shake by critics, but the 1up score is a promising sign.

I wouldn't touch this "game" with someone else's Wii. The whole thing seems half baked and stupid. I'd possibly feel better if more effort was put into the track list, a little lighter on the public domain and more on the actual music that'd be fun to look silly playing. It seems like classic Nintendo cheapness. The only advice I can give is to wait for the inevitable deluge of returns or trade ins of this and pick it up on the cheap.

Not sure it will change your mind, per se, but I think you at least won't sound angry anymore.  I just think you might be missing the point of the game.

Is that Charlie Brown sandwiched between Hitler and Ben Stein?

Interesting write-up, but I'm not sold on this one yet, either.

That is what most of people said about Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii, Animal Crossing, Wii Fit, etc before they came out.
Guess what? They all turned out to be either great and sold millions or decent and still sold millions  nod

I know I won't be grabbing it. Too many other games that need playing instead of this so called 'game'.

My Wii will continue to sit unplayed since Smash Brothers.

Hmm, as a DS owner, Wii Owner, Animal Crossing owner, and Wii Fit owner I know. You're preaching to the choir there; I enjoy those games/systems and see their value. They didn't come across as half baked ideas. I never said this game wouldn't sell. In fact I expect it to sell hojillions of copies. I just don't see the value in the software. I do not see this being worth $50. Look, the MTV blog write up makes it seem more interesting, the 1up.com review gave some insight, and the IGN review is a good counter point. I would've liked to see two things added to this software, a skill mode that actually makes you have good rythym and timing etc. for those who want something more than just jamming out and making videos, and more music that's not from the public domain. People get upset over the poor value of "horse armor" downloads, and those same people should be peeved that Nintendo is selling you a music game with public domain music on it and barely anything relevant in terms of songs.

Also, as a supporter of Nintendo I expect more from them. I'm kinda bugged that we are getting Wii Music but we're not getting Disaster Day of Crisis, while Europe and Japan get both. I want to see a better effort all around.
