    Pretty good game.

    Rated on January 13, 2006 by JudgementEden

    Did you like Pa Rappa the Rapper? What about Um Jammer Lammy? Well i didnt! This game though is way more better than them. If you like classical music like Bethoven or Mozart then you should l...

    Not for Guitar hero players, but those who appreciate classical music will get more out of this.

    Graphics: 3/10 Ok, lets be honest here, the graphics are a just a near mess. There nothing terribly special about them, they just get the job done. On the plus side, every level has a dark and a ligh...

    Has a certain appeal

    Rated on November 08, 2004 by dragoonlover

    Being a fan of classical music has its perks. For one thing, listening to Mozart flexes the mind(or so I'm told). For another, even the most hardcore rock singer needs classical training. And third...

    Have you ever wanted to be a conductor? Now's your chance!

    Rated on December 23, 2005 by Musquito

    This game is about classical music. The concert hall will be demolished because it's not used anymore. You're a conductor and it's your job to find enough musicians so that you can hold a concert in t...

    For fans of classical music, this game is sure to please, but the clunky and unforgiving gameplay will drive others away

    Mad Maestro has a unique concept in the realm of musical rhythm games. You play as a conductor trying to save the town concert hall from demolition by recruiting the local townsfolk as musicians and h...

    Take Parappa the Rapper, remove everything good about it, and you'll have something close to Mad Maestro.

    Rated on April 02, 2007 by sonic8846

    Mad Maestro was never much of a good idea. The whole thing was a rip-off of Parappa the Rapper, only with an orchestra. Of couse, the Japanese had to try. And it could have been great, had they put fo...

    A talking fairy, domestic violence, a guy in a lion suit, and classical music loving aliens.

    Rated on March 03, 2008 by garey017

    Somebody was on an acid trip when they decided to make this game. You play the role of a young conductor, who one day (seemingly after swallowing some mushrooms) is confronted by a fairy. She tells ...

    Master the art of classic music.

    Rated on June 29, 2011 by pashmina626

    There are lots of video games out in the world today that involve playing music like the popular Rock Band and Just Dance series but very few of them ever use the old style of classic music as I'm not...
