Excerpt: The video game Grease definitely targets the casual gamer and more specifically, the female gamer. Based on one of the world’s most popular musicals starring John Travolta as Danny and Olivia Newton-John as Sandy, players can now relive the musical and to an extent, the dancing, shenanigans and action in this romantic story about a good girl falling for a bad boy.
Summary: Parents need to know that Grease , based on the movie of the same name, has a story mode that can be completed by a single player in less than an hour. This is a very short and surprisingly repetitious game. It mirrors the central themes of the movie, including dating and jealousy, as well as cheating in activities to achieve goals. Some of the mini-games involve a modicum of violence, but no characters are shown to be seriously hurt.

The game takes full advantage of the Wii's motion-sensing controls and microphone, and the DS' touch-screen to create exciting gameplay for casual and family gamers eager to experience Grease in a new medium.
Conclusion: Although Grease: The Game has a few good moments, these are too few and far between for this title to be worth your time. The poor visuals, hit-or-miss mini-games, and short length make this a title that only the most diehard Grease fans need experience. Even if you feel you must have this game, I would still wait for the game to hit the bargain bin, as forty dollars is too high a cost for an experience that is dwarfed by a ten dollar Grease DVD, which will likely give...
Excerpt: It seems like something that would work perfectly, especially with today’s video gaming climate. A game based on a well-regarded musical which includes not only original songs, clips from the musical itself and more gameplay; but also on a platform that suits social gaming perfectly, the Nintendo Wii. Grease: The Official Videogame is something that, quite frankly, I’m surprised hasn’t been done up until now.
