Boogie - Hands-on

We're starting to feel some heat from this dance fever

Instead, Boogie seems to me more a sort of strange, disco-tinged marionette show. You move the Wii remote left, right, up and down, sometimes pressing the A button to shift to a different set of moves, and your onscreen dancer does all the hippy-hippy shaking, moon walking, and move busting. And that's a little strange.

But now that we've actually gotten our hands on the game (and now that it actually keeps score) we see potential here. Each of the five "Boogs" from which you choose can be modified with tons of different clothes. You want a green-haired babe in a cowgirl outfit? Here you go. If you decide you'd rather control a giant blue guy in a white Travolta suit, or a crunky little yellow alien dude, we have those too.


I was the founding Executive Editor/Editor in Chief here at GR, charged with making sure we published great stories every day without burning down the building or getting sued. Which isn't nearly as easy as you might imagine. I don't work for GR any longer, but I still come here - why wouldn't I? It's awesome. I'm a fairly average person who has nursed an above average love of video games since I first played Pong just over 30 years ago. I entered the games journalism world as a freelancer and have since been on staff at the magazines Next Generation and PSM before coming over to GamesRadar. Outside of gaming, I also love music (especially classic metal and hard rock), my lovely wife, my pet pig Bacon, Japanese monster movies, and my dented, now dearly departed '89 Ranger pickup truck. I pray sincerely. I cheer for the Bears, Bulls, and White Sox. And behind Tyler Nagata, I am probably the GR staffer least likely to get arrested... again.
