1UP scores Wii Music 91/100 – Did I Miss Something?

I am not entirely sure what the deal is with Wii Music.

How can you call something a game when you have such little affect on what is actually going on. To be honest, it looks as if I could get the same experience out of switching the radio on and handing out a couple of household goods to my friends and telling them to pretend that they are playing instruments.

While there are currently only three reviews on Metacritic for Wii Music ( The other two being Gamespy: 70/100 and IGN: 50/100) I was rather amazed to see that 1UP had scored it a 91.

It’s starting to make me wonder if being a gamer means the same thing as it did a couple of years back.

The short except from the review says the following:

“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.”

Am I one of those skeptics that she is talking about? Maybe. I won’t know until I have tried it.

To score it in the same range as titles such as Resident Evil 4, Okami and Metroid Prime 3 just feels off to me.

But hey, what the hell do I know, I am not one of the gazillion people out there who have forked out money on the Wii, even though they barely know how to turn a PC on. Maybe now that gaming has finally taken off, hardcore gamers are going to feel even more alienated than we were before.

Maybe I should buy Wii Music. I don’t want to feel left out when all of my aunts start talking about it.
