Samba de Amigo

Family Friendly Gaming
11 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I was extremely excited to find Samba de Amigo on Amazon for just under ten dollars. I checked with the editor in chief and found out that no one else had reviewed it, so I purchased this Wii game and got to shaking my maracas (once it arrived of course). When I started playing Samba de Amigo a lot of things went wrong. No wonder Sega did not mail this game in to Family Friendly Gaming.

Samba de Amigo Review

Cheat Code Central
25 March 2009
  • Conclusion: Unfortunately, even though this game sounds great, the controls reduce it to a mediocre status. The game is lots of fun to play in short bursts as long as your experience is relegated to the easier modes using the double Wii-mote control scheme. Also, this game really disappoints with its lack of any substantial online mode. Samba de Amigo may be great for a quick shake or two with friends, but it just can't hold its own and isn't the must-own game it should have been.

All-ages rhythm game has frustrating controls.

Common Sense Media

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is a rhythm game filled with several dozen pop songs, most of which fit into the Latin music category. There isn't much of anything that might be inappropriate for youngsters' eyes or ears, save a questionably shaped bikini top worn by one of the female characters.

  • Excerpt: Every once in a while, I come across a game that is hard to judge. Initially very fun, Samba De Amigo first struck me as a must have Wii game. It was great; shaking the maracas in time to a number of well-known samba styled songs. An alternative to Guitar Hero or Rock Band I thought; something that definitely should have a place in my collection. Unfortunately, not long after the first song was over, I found myself feeling dejected, empty, and overall, hugely jaded.

  • Excerpt: There is perhaps no greater authority on all things Dreamcast than this writer’s girlfriend (this bit may not be true); when questioned about her thoughts towards the semi-legendary Samba de Amigo she said “it was the Wii before the Wii existed…Sometimes even when I don’t have the Dreamcast connected I shake the maracas to hear the ‘chk-chk’ sound”. However strange that may sound (particularly the last part), there is an element of truth to both sentiments.

Empire Online

  • Summary: While only the hardest of hearts would fail to be charmed by a sombrero-wearing monkey shaking maracas to an effervescent assortment of Latin beats, whether you love or despise Samba De Amigo is wholly dependent on what you crave from your gaming sessions. For casual players who bought a Wii for the occasional blast of gaming goodness, Samba is perfect.

Samba De Amigo Wii Review

DarkZero
26 October 2008
  • Excerpt: A shiny pair of bright red maracas were the first plastic instrument that found a place in my home. They sat proudly on the shelf in the early ’00s long before plastic drums and guitars brought the rhythm genre kicking and screaming to the masses years down the line. However, no matter how much I loved the Dreamcast version of Samba De Amigo, and no matter how happy I was I found one of the few copies available at launch, I always knew it was a flawed game.

  • Excerpt: Samba de Amigo possédait de façon innée tous les atouts d’un jeu Wii avant même que Nintendo n’imagine sa nouvelle machine. C’est un concept simple, accessible, convivial, sur lequel on peut s’amuser à plusieurs. Un hit facile pour Sega ?

  • Excerpt: Det originale Samba de Amigo udkom til Segas, nu hedengangne desværre, Dreamcast spillekonsol tilbage i 2000. Spillet, med maracas, er siden blevet et samleobjekt og det er med andre ord blevet både sjældent og hamrede dyrt, hvis man forsøger at anskaffe sig det på f.eks. Ebay. Nu behøves man imidlertid ikke længere at spare sammen til at købe en brugt Dreamcast version for nu er spillet genopstået til Nintendo Wii. Men magien er desværre gået bort.
