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..
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!
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.
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).
Excerpt: I am a big fan of rhythm games. This one is a bit annoying/difficult, though. First, the basic principle - you are shaking your maracas along with various samba songs. Some of the songs are samba classics. I read the track names, say 'whuh?
Summary: My sister has this game with the maracas and it was lots of fun but I found the Maracas strained my wrists after playing for a little while and my tendinitis acted up so when I bought it I didn't buy them and thought I would play it with just the remotes.
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.
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!
