Summary: This game is really fun, I like that you can choose from a variety of music and other modes, so I shouldn't get bored with it any time soon. If you do not have two wii remotes however, it can be a little frustrating. With the nunchuck connection, you are well...connected, so it's hard to do some of the poses. Overall though, I like it. Update- with two wii remotes this is so much better!
Fun game at first.. but don't compare to original..

Summary: Let me begin by saying that this game cannot be compared with the original masterpiece that came out on the Sega Dreamcast. That game was so ahead of it's time that it became a cult classic. As an avid gamer, when I heard the news that they were remaking it for the Wii I was super excited! When I finally got the game I was a bit dissapointed BUT I do confess I had fin with it. First off the game is fun..
Summary: I bought this along with the macaracas for my grandchildren for Christmas. It took a bit of time to set up for two players to play and we also found that the controllers didn't work as well inside the macaracas. But once it was set up and we just used the macaracas as a musical instrument, we quite enjoyed the music and game.
Summary: I find one of the put-offs to this game is the case. It looks like a kid's game! However, when I started playing, I got up and shook my butt along with my 'maracas'. It isn't perfect, no game is- but it's an easy way to lose weight while enjoying the beat of the game. Fun and quirky!
Summary: No console would be better suited for Samba De Amigo then the Wii, but sadly in this games case that is not true. The controls don't always do as you command shaking your will remote up will result in shaking top left etc. Many new songs were added to this new version most poor cheesy 90s pop songs or one hit wonders you regret ever liking.
A fun game, especially with a second player, but it is let down due to it's inaccurate controls.

Excerpt: **This review is also on Ciao, under my username "MonsoonBaby88"** Want an energetic, fun game that makes you look pretty silly in the process? Then look no further then "Samba De Amigo." Created by the Sega team, Samba De Amigo first graced gaming systems on the short-lived Dreamcast console in 2000. The Dreamcast version featured two maracas that's motions were picked up by a sensor bar that is plugged into one of the slots on the front of the console.
Excerpt: Samba DE Amigo is a fantastic game which seems like it has been made for the Wii! I can't imagine it on any other game console. The premis of the game is to shake the wii remote and nunchuck like maracas in time with the music. The more you play the more you are required to do, such as strike poses and dance. When shaking the remotes you either have to shake them up, down or to the side.
Excerpt: My friends and I bought this game for a girlie night in with the wii! The basic premise is that you use the controller and the nun chuck as maracas, and shake them in time to the music. You get to pick songs to shake along to (unlocking more songs as you go along). Little circles will appear on the screen, directing you not only as to when to shake, but also where you should be shaking them.
