Very Good

Very fun, but limiting

A pretty fun game overall, with one severe limitation: the controllers. The Wii controllers, or perhaps the game itself, makes it very hard to get some of the moves correctly, particularly the "upper" ones (you play by moving the controllers up, down or to the side). The game itself is a blast as long as you don't take it too seriously and just enjoy the ride (in other words, don't worry about your score). The background animation is pretty frantic, but you learn to completely tune it out after a few minutes. The songs are great, and the whole game has a lot of energy that really makes you want to dance. Hopefully the next generation of Wii controller and/or next version of the game will allow for more precise controls.

The game is so fun (and so cheap) that it's one of the few that has made its way from "rent" to "buy" in my collection.

When I first started to play it was fun playing songs I haven't hard in while or didn't know was samba songs, but it has control trouble. Might be just me. I find it fun for a good work out.

I thought this game was really fun and can give you a good work out if you play it correctly.
Even my 4 year old and 7 year old will ask to play it. You have to try to get into the game like the Wiis are suppose to be played.
You need to get up off your chairs and really get into the music and maybe some dancing if you can...
