Wii Music is a 5/10, say IGN

IGN’s reviewed Wii Music to a 5/10 score, as you can see here. Not that it’ll make a blind bit of difference to its sales, but there we are. Snip:

I think most adults will quickly recognize that Wii Music is little more than a noise maker tied to a series of gestures and grow bored of the experience in a matter of hours, if not minutes. The controls aren’t particularly intuitive , but gimmicky, and the selection of music is fundamentally flawed with both dated public domain songs rendered in equally dated MIDI. That Guitar Hero World Tour’s complementary modes — namely Mii Freestyle and advanced studio — completely obliterate the entire Wii Music package is proof just how much Nintendo’s game either doesn’t do or doesn’t do well.

Sounds amazing. Full thing through the link.

    So far selling my Wii hasn’t come with any regrets.

    Was anybody really expecting anything more than a 5?

    Still it will sell truck loads on Wii.

    It got an A- from 1Up (reviewed by someone who’s a classically-trained musician, no less) but I guess that’s not in keeping with the whole trend towards Nintendo-bashing that’s going on at the moment, eh?

    Probably appreciates the artistic aspect of it. :P

    Prediction:
    Reviews bad, sales astronomical.
