Drum King for Wii Review

I love this game, I hate this game. It’s a love-hate relationship.

I got this game a couple of weeks ago because I haven’t touched my wii for months and it’s collecting dust so after watching some ‘Just Dance 3’ demo, I wanted it. Unfortunately I couldn’t find it but instead I found ‘Drum King‘. It doesn’t need any drum set so hey, worth a try.

You only need to use the wiimote and nunchuk as sorta like virtual instrument for this game.

The thing that I love is the fact that you don’t need extra expensive drum set to play it, and I’ve been wanting to play a drum game for so long. However I think there are more cons than pros with this game.

The wiimote is quite heavy, so after a while of heavy ‘air drumming’, your hand, wrist and arm will get very tired. I could only survive the easiest option because if you choose the hard mode, you’ll get confused unless your friends nicknamed you the Drums Dude! You have to remember what combination of buttons will do for what part of drums.. it’s too complicated for my brain.

The notes also sometimes don’t hit at the right moment, even though I tried my best to hit it.. like I said, it’s all confusing. But what’s nice is that I can drum to some of my favorite songs so it’s a good stress reliever, but not something you can play for a long time. And since I’m playing it on a 46″ TV it gives me headache.. after you’re done playing each songs, because you’ve been concentrating on the moving notes on screen, your surrounding will move for a while after.. it’s like one of those optical illusion pictures that after you stare for a long time, your eyesight will have moving images, surrounding and stuff.
