It’s Dance Dance Revolution for my hands

  • Conclusion: I could half-heartedly wiggle the Wiimote and still score.
  • Pros: My standout tune: "Battle for Planet Earth” by Tokyo Robot Gangsters.
  • Cons: Disappointment that there isn’t much variety beyond the core game.

Helix

  • Excerpt: Helix is a music rhythm game in which you must mimic the dance moves of a robot while holding two Wii remotes.  The dance moves are all done with your arms, and all involve pointing or swinging your arms in one direction or another.  In fact, the game is more like playing Simon Says with a techno soundtrack than it is like dancing.

  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is My arms feel kind of sore right now. After spending the summer doing basically nothing, Helix knocked on my door and gave me a rude wakeup call. A dancing rhythm game which requires the use of both of hands, my arms did not see this one coming.  With a solid collection of songs on hand, Helix from the outside at least looks like a solid Wii Ware title for you to download.

Expert Review

  • Conclusion: When you first pick up Helix, you can run into a sense of boredom and frustration, as the easy level is a bit awkward, but as you get used to the controls and learn the game better, it becomes more natural to play and can really help you build up a sweat as it takes on the feeling of a Jazzercise-like boxing workout with a rave soundtrack.
