Alvin and the Chipmunks Chipwrecked
Majesco Entertainment has one monster
Christmas video game line up this year. At every turn there has been an
interesting video game from them this year. Alvin and the Chipmunks
Chipwrecked follows the movie of the same name loosely. There are thirty
generally well known songs in this home console Xbox 360 Kinect video
The first thing families will want to pay attention to is the E10+ rating. That means everyone who is ten years or older. There are certain songs in Alvin and the Chipmunks Chipwrecked with lyrical issues. I recommend looking over the song list before purchasing so you have some idea what songs are being discussed.
The Chipmunks and Chipettes look pretty good in Alvin and the Chipmunks Chipwrecked. Their animation is not at the level of the movie, but they are not as stiff as they were in previous games. There are a few different environments for two family members to enjoy. Although expect to stay on the same one for multiple songs in the story mode.
I personally found quite a few worldly songs in Alvin and the Chipmunks Chipwrecked that are enjoyable to listen to. Things like La Bamba, and Video Killed the Radio Star are stand out songs for me. It is also fun to hear the Chipmunks sing these different songs. I like some of their versions to songs better than the original artists. Witch Doctor, and Beat It are songs in Alvin and the Chipmunks Chipwrecked.
Gamers are graded on how accurately they follow the movements in Alvin and the Chipmunks Chipwrecked. Since this is Kinect you have to move your legs as well as your arms. Early on Alvin and the Chipmunks Chipwrecked is very forgiving. I got a perfect on a few songs that I know I made mistakes on. Later songs were more difficult though, and getting all of the gold stars was challenging. There is a free play mode so you do not need to unlock everything.
Getting exercise from dance is the main lesson in Alvin and the Chipmunks Chipwrecked. I found myself winded after a few songs, and was happy to share Alvin and the Chipmunks Chipwrecked with others. Everyone had fun dancing with the Chipmunks. The main issue for families with Alvin and the Chipmunks Chipwrecked is the lyrics to some of the songs. The majority of the dance moves are safe. A few here and there are borderline questionable.
