How could I have not known about this?!
So I was at my parents’ house this weekend, and I came upon an old stack of my brother’s Electronic Gaming Monthly magazines. I just bought an Xbox 360 (mostly for the Netflix capabilities, but have you played Limbo yet? I got past the giant one-legged spider, but I cannot figure out the pulley system!), so I decided to flip through a few for a retrospective. I found it inside a volume from 2005: Wii Orchestra.
I know! I know! It’s an orchestra video game! EGM described it as little more than “conducting” a simulated cartoon orchestra by waving your arms around, but looking it up today I find it has evolved into so much more. For starters, we now have Wii Music, and you use these:
The conductor’s baton looks like a dental implement. And that must be one of those 1/4 cellos. And check out that bow! I just… I have not the words. I especially have not the words for the flute. I knew I should’ve gotten a Wii.
Has anyone played this game? What is it like?
