As said this isn't really a music "game" but a music "creator". One has to look at it with that in mind. Once you do I think one's opinion of the game changes for the better. You are suppose to experiment and it takes a bit of time to get used to what you can do. Each person is going to have a different experience in the end. It should never be compared to games like Rockband or Guitar Hero where you are simply replaying music and trying to replicate the song as best you can. You could do that with Wii Music with the music they have but you are encourage not to do that.

Um...ShadowOS...THE ENTIRE GAME IS ABOUT CREATING YOUR OWN MUSIC!
It just gives you a basis to start with.
A music creator is NOT a game. Its a music creator.
The point of Wii Music is to take a song and add your own flavor to it. It wouldn't make any sense to create your own song...and then add more of your own flavor to it.

I still play this sometimes, but the lack of any decent songs is horrible. I really wish you could just create your own stuff and share it instead of playing the same crappy quality midis of cheesy songs. The fact Nintendo made a game called Wii MUSIC and used horrible quality Midis instead of real instruments shows they slapped this together last minute after all the hype a wii tech demo created. I mean it's a game about exploring music and you have generic 8 bit sounds for instruments...

I have a weird tradition on here to make miis of all my teachers and make them play a song with instruments that suit their personality. 8th grade did September, 9th Grade did Loco-Motion, and now 10th grade with F-Zero Mute City.

I just picked this up and it's amazing. I love it.

And the negative reviewers seem to have conveniently ignored the side games that I never was aware existed. Pitch Perfect is great fun.

Also, as a musician, I've always wanted to learn the drums, and one thing this game makes easier is learning the various drum styles one may want to use. And if you pay attention to which drums the Miis hit when doing these various styles, you'll quickly learn the best way to play for whatever songs. Crappy game? Bull.

One thing I love about this game (and all of the Wii series, really) is that I can pick it up and play it any time and know I'll have a good time. It reminds me of the early days of the NES, when you could just pop in one of the SMB games, Zelda, Kirby, or any number of other titles, play for 5 or 10 minutes, and still be satisfied.

The only thing this game really needed was an independent music creation system which was only seen in the balance board on the drums. If people wanna criticize something then criticize that. Other than that, it's just one more excellent Nintendo-made title. I see why 3rd parties are scared of them.

The next couple of weeks will be key to the continued life of this game. It will drop quite a bit after the holidays, the interesting thing will be if it stops dropping and what level that would be at.
If if can keep a healthy 60k+ per week, then it'll definitely reach 5 million and go beyond.
If it keeps dropping, it will fall short of that and end up around 4 million.

@Paulkelly1980 - I figured it out! It gets hate because it's the first 'hardcore casual' game! It appeals to the people that usually enjoy causal gaming, but it's really a skilldriven really difficult game.
It has a completely new reward system, and it lacks almost all the regular rules found in games.
In short, it's impossible for most gamers to understand, and too difficult to enjoy if you don't.
