(Newser) – You might not rock out with Nintendo’s new Wii Music the way your teen would with Guitar Hero, but that won’t stop the family from having a ball with the game, Katherine Boehret writes in the Wall Street Journal. The game stays true to the Wii tradition of “cute,” offering a friendly challenge to gamers.

Wii Music offers an array of songs (none more current than the 1980s) and genres to choose from, and enables users to compose, conduct, or play music—even adding a barking dog on command. Users won’t need special instruments to play; the game relies on the motion-sensitive controllers its other titles use.
