Free Play – Pop’n Music (Wii)

Pop'n Music CoverMy excitement was high when I saw this game sitting on the shelf. I thought to myself, “No way! Pop’n Music for only $4! And on the Wii, eh? That just might be able to work.”

Why I thought so highly of the Wii and its controls I do not know, because Pop’n Music this is not. Konami, why did you do this to me? Why didn’t you just release a true version of Pop’n Music here in the United States, with an official 9-Button controller and the actual gameplay the series is known for? I would have greatly played and praised that game, but instead I have this musical tragedy.

You’re (hopefully) getting the vibe that this game isn’t that good. Don’t get me wrong, it’s terrible, but for a younger audience not very familiar with Bemani games or music games in general, this may actually be a decent game for them. But unfamiliar I am  not, nor a child, so Pop’n Music gets a nice big “NO” on my recommendation scale.

For reference, the recommendation scale goes like this: NO > Maybe > Yes > OHMYGODPLAYTHISNOW!!

I've been writing about video games for over five years and playing them even longer. You'll find me playing all types of games, old and new. Mega Man III is greater than Mega Man II.
