Summary: Alvin and the Chipmunks on the Nintendo DS does not actually relate all that much to the movie other than the fact that the Chipmunks are rock stars and that Mr. Human Protagonist, Dave, is running their tour. Not to mention, the song roster presented to you in this little cartridge consists of fourteen various rock songs, but with the Chipmunks being the singers for each one.
Summary: I ONLY GOT THIS GAME BECAUSE AT THE TIME I GOT IT I DIDN'T KNOW THAT MUCH ABOUT DS GAMES. IT WAS 1 OF THE FIRST 2 GAMES I GOT ALONG WITH MARIO KART DS. THE POINT OF THE GAME IS TO TAP RECORDS SO THEY FALL IN HOLES. I KNOW IT SOUNDS CONFUSING BUT YOU WOULD KNOW IF YOU HAD THE GAME. IF YOU DROP THE RECORDS YOU LOSE POINTS AND FAIL THE LEVEL. I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS GAME TO ANYONE. P.S. IF YOU GET THIS GAME YOU WILL DEFINITELY NEED A STYLUS.

Summary: Okay I got this game and I love Alvin and the chipmunks and I love their music this game is really good but really quite to easy and to short. All you do in the game is read the story line and hit album records with your stylus and listen to chipmunk songs while your hitting the records with your stylus and follow the story line I mean I already beat the game the first day I got it on the easy mode now I'm half way already done on the medium mode.
Summary: My kids loved Alvin & Chipmunk movie and this looked like a good game for them - but it's not worth it. The pluses are the music, the rest is all minuses. It's only one game - or one type with no variety. The easiest level is not easy enough for kids, and I actually found the harder level easier to work because it made a bit more sense with the timing of the music.
Summary: While I too miss the 80's/90's cartoon and the new digital "Munks" are cute in their own way, this game lacks the charm of the older ones. It's not so much a game as an interactive soundtrack. The music is good, but other sound to the game has holes like no voice overs or background music for the bland text. And the graphics are as good as can be expected for the DS, however they still are very stiff and repetitive.
Summary: I watch Alvin and the Chipmunks when i was younger as a cartoon and i loved them!Then I saw the new one and i loved it too! The game is fun but it doesn't vary enough. Love the music, the graphics are good, but u can only play 1-2 levels without getting bored. Other than that it is big fun!
Summary: When it comes to video games based on movies, most of them don't really showcase a value for what they are worth. When they do it is rare, but in this case it just misses the makr by a longshot. I loved Alvin & The Chipmunks when they were a cute and funny cartoon series that lasted for several years 1983-1989 on NBC. Sadly though, the feeling of the chipmunks has gone down. Now with a movie based on the classic cartoon series, they have really lost there luster.
Alvin and the Chipmunks - Guitar Hero style game for Nintendo DS
25 July 2009
Excerpt: This listing is for the Nintendo DS game, Alvin and the Chipmunks, developed by Brash Entertainment and published by Eidos. The game is similar in principle to Guitar Hero, and involves playing along to music. The general plot behind the game is that you start at a small music venue and then have to work round larger venues. In each level you have to catch various icons which drop from the top of the screen, and this is what keeps you in time with the music.
