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.
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.
Summary: Review is for the Wii version: Alvin & the Chipmunks is a rhythm game that tries to drive you insane quickly but is fun for the whole family. You will need both a wii-mote & the nunchuck to play single player, and an extra pair for head to head. In story mode, each stage has the chipmunks playing 3 songs which must be played though to advance to the next locale.
