Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (1 ):

Unfortunately, waving a Wii remote up and down simply isn't much fun. Bandmates (who consist of an admittedly cute bunch of instrument-playing animals) all like to walk at different speeds, and it's a balancing act to keep everyone happy since they'll get angry and leave the band if they feel the pace isn't right. Controls are finicky at best, and the game's cause isn't helped by subpar graphics, a boring story, primitive sound that doesn't do the tunes any justice, and only eight stages (which can be played again in Normal and Challenge modes once Beginner has been completed.)

The game's elementary control scheme will have music game veterans running back to Rock Band or Guitar Hero in no time, while beginners will easily become frustrated by the finicky controls, the need to constantly adjust the tempo (which in itself is no easy task, since the band often seems to have a momentum all its own), and the frequent admonishments from GGGG if they aren't doing things right. For that reason, it's hard to recommend Major Minor's Majestic March for any particular age group or skill level.
