What It Is
You can't swing a drum stick in a gaming store these days without hitting half a dozen music-themed games. Most of these games rely on you "playing" someone else's music, however, Wii Music turns you into the composer and gives you the ability to create your own music. The game contains over 60 instruments, all of which are played using simple motions-like strumming and drumming-with the Wii-Remote. Up to four players can join in the jam and work with the keyboard-style elements such as background beats and tempo controls.
