Summary: I bought this for my girls last Christmas and they played the game maybe 2 times and were done. It is not exciting as I thought it would have been. It's a little slow and there is not a whole lot of action. My girls are 9 and they didn't see this game to be that fun!
Summary: I bought the game for my 8 yr old niece who really likes it. She also has the Sing It game which uses the same songs. Its not as much dancing as I expected, more hand motions. I think the game with the dancepad would be a little more fun to do.
Summary: Bought this game for my seven year old daughter for Christmas. She has mastered the game but still continues to play with much enjoyment. Even my husband who was hesistant to play at first enjoyed playing the game. We have all 'graduated' and still have fun with the dance-offs. I could go without another HSM movie, but another dance game with new songs would be nice.
Summary: My daughter is 12 yrs old and loves HS Musical. That is whom I bought the game for. She loves playing this game and loves dancing along. The characters on the game do look very similar to the actors in the movie. Very cute game.
Summary: This was bought for my teenage daughter. She has really enjoyed it but I believe it would have been even more fun if it had the dance pad. The Wii version is done only with hand motions. It does go from easy to quite complicated though. My daughter loves the music so she doesn't really care that it's only arm and hand motions.
Summary: My 9 year old LOVES this game. Her favorite features......creating the characters, and the reward of "extra songs" that unlocked while she was playing. (I don't know what made them unlock- I think they unlock when she masters a level????) My favorite feature.....a little exercise......not alot, but enough to make me feel better about letting her play video games!
Summary: Bought this on the spur of the moment, because they didn't have Medal of Honor 2 (and it was buy two get one free at target)...figured I'd be a responsible father <smile>. My 8 yr old daughter and I just played it. Did the Tutorial together, and got frustrated--seemed like we weren't getting it. Then played the real game, chose a song, did the dance moves as a duo and got an "A"...wahoo...boy did her opinion change after that! It was a ton of fun!
