What We Think –
The ABBA You Can Dance Wii game is going to be a HUGE hit with ABBA fans this Christmas! Not only can you dance along to your favourite track’s but you can sing along with them too! We are lucky enough to already have a microphone (there would have been some disappointment if we hadn’t) You don’t need a microphone for the whole game just for the sing along part! There is lots of fun to be had with the dancing and the lyrics appear along the bottom of the screen so you can sing a long to those but it is great to be able to get the microphone out and sing badly along ;O) Everyone knows the ABBA songs so this is going to be great over Christmas when friends come round for a few drinks!

The moves are easy to follow (well there are a few tricky ones but that’s the fun of it) and the menu’s are easy to follow! Not sure this is one for the kids really but more for us crazy grown ups who are dying to go back to our teens again! Lero my 15 yr old absolutely LOVES it! He’s very into singing and dancing and LOVES ABBA so it is great for him; but Boo my 5 yr old hasn’t got a clue who ABBA are and has never heard the songs before! But I think ABBA are timeless and she’ll pick them up in no time! She doesn’t care anyway she just loves to dance along!! Really great game!! LOVE it :O)

You can pick a copy of ABBA You Can Dance up at Amazon for the bargain price of £17.99! Put it in someones stocking this year and have a ball ;O)
