Since the wife and I love the simple competitive games on the Wii (i.e. Wii Sports), we’re looking forward to the upcoming release titled Wii Music. Yes, it looks to be like a dumbed down version of Rock Band but for parents like me who don’t want to spend the time to figure out all the nuances of the games, this will be perfect. The game offers 60 different instruments to play using the Wii remote and the nunchuk controllers. and if you already have Wii Fit, you can use the Wii Fit balance board (along with the Wii remote/Nunchuk) to control a virtual drum set. Other featured instruments in the game include - banjo, guitar, marimba, piano and even trumpet. There’s also a tone quiz where you can test your musical ear and compete with others for better rankings.
