I love ABBA – I always have. Actually, I used to listen to them so much in the car when the kids were younger that they really good at singing it too.
As a Ubichamp, I was sent a copy of the Wii game ABBA You Can Dance to review, and I had a feeling if ABBA was involved, this was going to be a great game. This game is also from the creators of the Just Dance games which, if you’ve ever tried them, you’ll know it’s a guaranteed great time!
ABBA You Can Dance does not disappoint. It’s super fun! We had a blast dancing to the music and competing to see who would get the highest score for accuracy in moves. I also loved that it shows the lyrics to the songs on the screen so that you can sing along while you dance. The Dance part of the game features 26 different songs to dance to, where up to four people can dance at the same time. There is also a Mini Musical, which is similar to the dancing but a longer dancing segment, again with four people being able to play. There is also karaoke section that allows you to sing to 15 different ABBA songs while the video plays in the background.
I loved this game and my kids did too. We played for a very long time – just watching them dance along as best they could was so damn adorable. This is the game you want to take to a party – everyone would enjoy it. I’m definitely taking it along Easter weekend, so we can have a laugh and get our ABBA on at the same time. It does not disappoint – definitely pick this one up!
It’s available for purchase at Amazon.com for $19.99.
