Well I rented this game for my 5 year old daughter. She is in this ballerina phase and we thought she might like this game. WEll she didn't. You never dance with this game or at least not in the first few hours. That is where we quit. No instead you just point your controller at a series of shapes and click it. That is it. If you have a choice to play this game or watch all the seasons of Golden Girls non stop without any breaks go pop some popcorn. I gave it a 1 because 0 was not an option.

My wife rented this game expecting it to be a dancing game that uses the motion features of the Wii. Be aware that it is not. I would describe the game play as being like Guitar Hero if it were played by point-and-click. Little icons appear on the screen, and you have to point at them with the remote and click the button in time with the rhythm of the song. This is kind of a poorly conceived way to construct a game, but it does work perfectly fine... it's just boring.

On the story side, most people who rent this game are probably expecting it to be very cutsie. Actually, the main character of the game is probably more like 12-14 years old, and I'd say the story is geared more toward this age group. The story follows the girl as she flirts with boys, while trying to balance this with her ballerina training. The payoff of the story is seeing which boy she chooses in the end. The story isn't great, but it's not awful either.

In summary, I don't really have anything particularly good to say about this game other than the fact that I haven't seen another game like it. On the other hand, I think a 12 year old girl would probably enjoy it for a couple of days, so I don't think it's as bad as some other reviewers are making it out to be.

This really wasn't a game it was a book. little game moments here and there over all I did not like it nor did my daughter who wants to dance ballet. I thought it would be a dancing game just ballet and it was just a story of worthless information. Sorry sending back.
