Whether bass, guitar, or percussion– controls are always simple, comprehensible, and easy to learn. Musiic Party: Rock the House relies on the innovative motion control options of Nintendo’s Wii™, so that all actions are performed by moving the Wii Remote or Nunchuk– get ready to unleash your inner rock beast.

Rock gods of all ages are invited to rock out to some of the greatest rock anthems ever laid down. The game includes tracks spanning over five decades, from the swinging 60s to the early noughties. This range of music includes modern classics and legendary anthems for gamers of all ages to enjoy. 30 rock tracks offering a wide selection of music and ensuring there is something for everyone’s taste.

Player modes:

Multiplayer mode - Musiic Party: Rock the House is a true multiplayer party game, and comes into its own when played with friends and family.  The game includes two great multiplayer options for up to three people on the same machine, so you and your friends can feel like a real rock band. In the co-operative jam mode, up to three gamers can play the game simultaneously and experience that real rock band feeling.  Musiic Party really does Rock the House, as all three players work hard to reach your respective musical Nirvanas, hitting the right cords to achieve the ultimate rock accolades. Riders are unfortunately not included!

Head to Head - In the two player head to head mode, you must battle against each other across a series of mini games and Musiic challenges. With the songs alternating between the players, you’ll be judged on accuracy, timing as well as a sprinkling of star dust. The player with the highest score at the end of the track wins.

Single Player - The story mode sees gamers treading the hard road from roadie to rock superstar, as you and your new band move from gig to gig, improving along the way, unlocking new songs, mini games, outfits and instruments. You must play through a series of gigs starting at a small flea pit in Liberty City before finishing off at a massive concert hall in Hollywood.  Don’t just rest on your plectrum, as Musiic Party will challenge you to switch between the three instruments. After all, rock gods aren’t limited to just one instrument.

We advise you not to try crowd surfing though. Whilst air makes a fantastic guitar, it doesn’t make for a very good crowd!
