Summary: Abba fans should find themselves more than a little disappointed by

Pros: It’s based on Abba’s music., You get Abba music videos to watch or ostensibly “, sing, along with, .”, Has the potential to be a fun party game.
Cons: No scoring on singing., Difficult if not impossible to sing into mic while dancing., Dancing is only tracked by a single Wii-mote in your right hand, as opposed to full motion ala the Kinect., The Mini-Musical was extremely cheesy and a poor, if blatant swipe of, Grease
Excerpt: ABBA You Can Dance will be pretty familiar to anyone's who played the Just Dance games on the Wii. You (and up to three of your friends) hold the Wii remote in one hand and try to mimic the motions of the on-screen dancers. Each move is rated on a soft scale that runs from a complete fail to "perfect", and at the end of the song your success in nailing all of the moves is translated into a score.
Excerpt: Les années disco vous manquent ? Nous aussi. Couleur rose bonbon, flou artistique et pantalon pattes d'eph, ce qui peut sembler kitsch aujourd'hui était une véritable façon de vivre dans les seventies. Et la musique d'ABBA en est indissociable.
