When I took Wii Music for a test drive last month, I was trying to figure out what I liked more (and less) about it than Rock Band. What I still haven't decided about is how I feel about the lack of scoring. They want you to "create" music and interpret songs in different ways, but it's not easy to get used to the fact that at the end of your round, you have no way to measure how you did.
Amid reports that game sales are struggling, I wonder if this is what people don't "get" about the game, and if that's why Wii Music hasn't yet shown to be a threat to Rock Band yet. Aren't video games naturally about competition? Don't you get motivated to play a game by wanting to beat the next level or your own scores?
On the other hand, maybe eliminating competition is a healthy thing, teaching us to have fun for fun's sake instead of everything being a competition. What do you think about Wii Music?
