So glad noone was there to watch...

This game is simple, but enormous fun. I played it for 2 1/2 hours without realising - it is that addictive. The tunes on it can be a bit strange - Tubthumping a la Mexican was a bit wierd - but the vast majority are the kind of thing you'd expect, from 50s classics like La Bamba right up to current. And knowing the music certainly helps me enjoy the game far more!
This is a great game for helping kids develop rhythm, and even greater for old birds like me who want a little less development in the bingo-wing department! It certainly works those arms! My 10-year-old son whipped through the training and performed brilliantly too!
Incidentally, I also bought the plain white maracas (currently £7.00ish, not the Enigma ones) of which the wiimotes just slip into the handles. They work brilliantly with this game, tho maybe someone just sitting and watching might find the noise a bit much. They help give realism to the game, although we have found it easier to navigate around the screen using the control buttons, which are completely accessible, while the maracas are in place.
To sum up, great fun, great exercise, and I can't wait to host a wii party with it, if the amount of time I spent laughing at myself is anything to go by!
