EA's singy dance-a-thon softshoes its way onto PS2
Nov 26, 2007
Dammit! Just when we had come out and praised Boogie as unique, original, and a potential end to the exhaustive wave of Wii ports, EA has predictably shuffled the exact same game onto the Playstation 2. With the Wii version, we were mystified as to why you couldn't dance and sing at the same time. Now, the best we can guess is so it could make an easy transition onto a Remote-less console. Bah.
Oh well. At least the younger, PS2, sect can get a chance to check out this quirky little game of dance and song. It makes the transition quite well, so the solid rhythm experience is present and accounted for. Substituting shoulder buttons and a dual analog stick mode for the lack of motion controls, you'll use the Square, Circle and X buttons to change up your dance style, while nudging the sticks in different directions to execute specific moves.
Boogie is very forgiving. As long as what you're bustin' out is varied and in time with the onscreen cue, you'll lap up the combo points. Additionally, diagonal moves work far better here than on the Wii... so the PS2's got that going for it.
