Get the party started and dance to 30 hot tunes from the Alvin and The Chipmunks!
Majesco Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox, and Bagdasarian Productions have released their newest dance video game called Alvin and The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, based upon the third installment of the blockbuster film franchise that is in theaters now.
Alvin, Simon, Theodore, and The Chipettes (Brittany, Eleanor, and Jeanette) are at it again in this exciting, motion picture-based video game experience. The game is set aboard a luxury cruise liner that gets turned into their personal playground, and on a deserted island on which they’ve become ‘chipwrecked’. Players can dance along with the ‘munks’ as their dance moves are tracked on the Kinect™ for Xbox 360® and Wii™ versions!
Our Take: It states that the rating is for ages 10+, well I don’t know too many ten-year-olds that would want to play this game. I think that is for a younger crowd unless your child wants to read along with the songs. It is a very easy game. You can create a munk by answering questions to see which one you are more like. My son got Alvin. The song lyrics appear on the top of the screen for the kiddos to sing along and the munks sing along in their famous munk voices. So you really need to love those chipmunks to be able to stand that noise for any amount of time. The premise of the game is to dance along with the cue cards that appear on the bottom of the screen to gain points. With those points, you can unlock new outfits, hats, and accessories. This game was just not for my boys. But it would make a good choice for a family-friendly game for kids that really love the Chipmunks.
Alvin and The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked features 30 songs on Kinect for Xbox 360 and Wii versions and 18 tracks in the Nintendo DS version of the game. Alvin and The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked brings songs from the past and present for all generations to share and enjoy together, and dance like never before.
