Why stay away? Read on and pay attention, it's important!

First, let’s talk about the gameplay. You know, the category that makes the game? The icing on the cake, if you will. This is supposed to be a rhythm and music game, right? Right. But the biggest sin of all rhythm and music games was committed, NONE OF THE NOTES WERE SET UP TO BE TRIGGERED RHYTHMICALLY! You’re basically blowing up those star-shaped notes while the music is playing in the background. What’s the point of triggering them if you can’t do it in time with the music?

I can't really gripe about the Chipmunks’ cover songs they put in the game. After all, it is Alvin and the Chipmunks, so there's an acceptable reason. You’ve got a lot of ‘90s hits and that’s what most of the soundtrack is comprised of. The songlist is decent, considering I love a lot of the music from that era. However, what I can't accept is that none of the original artists were listed in the game. I even sat through the credits and there were no music credits, so you have to play through the entire game to find out for yourself. Yeah, good luck keeping your sanity.

Another thing, why would you even compare this hideous pile of dog feces (or in this case “chipmunk feces”) to Guitar Hero? It looks nothing like GH and it sure doesn’t play like GH. The layout bears a strong resemblance to Samba de Amigo. Actually I’ve never played that yet, but I can seriously imagine that it’s 10x better. Do not compare Alvin to Guitar Hero, Rock Band, or even DDR for that matter. Don’t even classify this as a rhythm and music game, because there’s NO RHYTHM AT ALL!

In closing, if you haven't played this game yet, you've dodged a bullet. Do yourself a favor and keep it away from your PS2 (and Wii) at all costs! However, if you're in need for a beer coaster, a frisbee for your dog, or better yet, crumbling something to make fake snow... you know what? Go buy a real beer coaster or frisbee and save yourself a few bucks.

This was the most boring game my kids and myself have ever played. We played it for 15 minutes then packaged it up to be sent back.
We were really disappointed in this game.
