This game is really a mixed bag. On the one hand, it offers alot of customization and some classic songs. On the other hand, it is really goofy. The game has four control styles(piano, guitar, violin, and trumpet) and three of them are fun too play. The piano style has you moving your Wiimote and Nunchuck up and down like you were playing the keys of a piano. It was very fun and was the second best way to control this game. Guitar style has you just moving the Wiimote down like you were strumming a guitar. It was also very fun, but it will not be the control scheme you will be coming back to. The violin style is definitely the worst. You have to press B or Z while moving your Wiimote like a bow on a violin. The only problem is that it is very annoying having to jerk the Wiimote back and forth every time you had to hit a note. The Trumpet styke was by far the best. You held your Wiimote like a trumpet and pressed the one and two buttons to play. It was the most fun of the control schemes. There were also minigames too play, and they were all fun and you are definitely going to enjoy going back and beating your old high score. You could also save your preformances and rewatch your favorites whenever you wanted. The real problem with this game is song selection. One thing that I wish Nintendo had done was make the Song Selection be entirely from the Nintendo universe. Instead we get a mix of Classical, Public Domain, and Liscenced songs, with a grand total of 7 Nintendo songs(out of 52). Now this is a hard verdict to pass out, as I really did enjoy Wii Music. But I am going to hqave to say rent it, because you will enjoy it while you are playing it, but you might not want to spend the 50$ on a game you may only pick up a few times.
