Really a bad game

Regular Dad, Amazon
1 January 2009
  • Summary: The other negative reviewers are right. This is a really crummy game, just the same motion again and again. The Chipmunks music is fun, but there isn't any real interaction with the characters, and all you do is push a button on the wiimote or the nunchuk as a star passes a target. My 9 year old son was bored after about 2 songs and hasn't played it again. Really just a piece of shovelware junk that I wouldn't recommend to anybody else.

Fun Game

Georjann Lee "G Lee", Amazon

  • Summary: My 2 year old son LOVES the chipmunks movie so I got this for him and his sister (and me too), The first time playing it was a little confusing. I tried it again and did the instructional part. That was hard. When I went into the story game, I figured it out. It DOES go on the beat for about 90% of the time. The songs are cute and up to date. I can't stop playing it cause it's cute and fun!! I think I may get guitar hero for my husband for V-day or something.

Okay game but not what I was expecting

A. Barney, Amazon
28 December 2008
  • Summary: I bought this game when it was on sale several weeks ago for[...] I bought it as a Christmas present for my 4-year-old who LOVES Alvin and the Chipmunks. Unfortunately, it is a little advanced for him. I had a hard enough time trying to figure it out ... and I'm still on the easy level which only involves matching 2 of the 4 stars. Unfortunately, I am finding that many Wii games I would think should be on a young enough level for my 4-year-old are too difficult.

Movie-based video games at a new low

xrayhearing, Amazon

  • Summary: Video games based on movies are notoriously bad. They are often rush jobs that aim to exploit consumers' interest in upcoming exciting movies. Almost every kids movie and almost every movie made for semi-grown-up kids seems to have one of these "movie tie-in games," and the critics usually pan these games. However, Alvin and the Chipmunks is beyond just being a bad game...it's pathetic.

A little disappointed

Sarah Bergemann "Pook", Amazon
18 May 2008
  • Summary: I would have to say that I was a little disappointed with this game. I bought it for my 4 1/2 year old who can't seem to stay on the stage. I guess for the amount that I paid it's OK. I wouldn't suggest it to anyone, if they want to try it, rent it first! Listening to them sing the songs is cute at first but very annoying after a while! I was really disappointed with the repetative and weak graphics.

Too hard

A. Gaffney "gaffney16", Amazon
24 March 2008
  • Summary: I bought this for a 4 year old, he gets very frustrated with it and no longer wants to play. I was thinking this was more on the lines of the Hannah Montana game, you just have to do the arm moves no buttons to push with certain shapes. This game you have to hold buttons for the top and release for the bottom. I'm sure with practice my son would get the hang of it but if you miss the beat the game ends and you have to start over. He just doen't have the patience.

Fun game for the whole family!

G. Montreuil, Amazon
12 January 2008
  • Summary: Once you get past the chipmunks singing, the game is a blast! I bought it on sale and did not have a clue what it was about. I thought my 3yr old would get a kick out it. Once we started playing his 13yr old brothers took over. They have been waiting for to get Guitar Hero III and this has filled the wait. The songs are actually great...regardless of the chipmunk singing! And you get so into the drumming that you barely notice. It is also entertaining to watch.

This game is bad - really bad - even for the young ones!

jamie, Amazon

  • Summary: I cannot believe anyone would give this game a good rating, unless they've never played it. My 7 year old was so excited to get this game and even he immediately became aware of how lame it is. He paid $50 for it out of his Christmas gift card for GameStop. So sad. All you do is the same repetitive movement of clicking and shaking the WII remote when the star reaches the circle - this is THE EXACT SAME MOVEMENT as you move from level to level.
