Boogie review

  • Cute and quirky as hell
  • Improved diagonal controls
  • An excuse to sing MC Hammer
  • No singing and dancing together
  • Short and easy single player
  • The Wii remote is sorely missed

Karaoke is here, with EA's now standard microphone packed right in. Judging pitch and timing, it's just as simplistic and easy as it ever was, so serious aspiring crooners may want to stick to the SingStar series. We hated that you couldn't dance and sing on the Wii, but it does make a little more sense here, since most of us aren't gifted enough to hold mic and Dual Shock at the same time.

The snobby indie rocker in us wants to lambaste the 40 song track list of mainstream, Lite FM pap, but we'll be damned if it isn't totally suited to the occasion. Even if you've spent the last ten years listening to nothing but college radio and obscure Frank Zappa LP's - you know these songs. And so will anyone else willing to cut a rug with you. Whether you're a regular John Travolta, or just a mojo-less wallflower willing to throw dignity to the wind, Boogie is extremely infectious and can really get your feet moving if you're not careful.
