Summary: Parents need to know that We Cheer 2 expands on the original cheerleading sim by allowing players to play as male cheerleaders as well as female. Whereas the original was rated E10+ for Mild Lyrics, this sequel ratchets up the descriptors to "Lyrics and mild suggestive themes" for the lyrics of some of the songs as well as some of the movements of the sexy avatars.
Excerpt: We Cheer 2 follows up its pom-pom shaking predecessor with some new dance moves and new stages along with both male and female characters this time round. And of course there are complimenting outfits for each gender. The game utilizes two Wii remotes as pom-poms as players perform full body motions to a fairly strong selection of songs from both past and present.
Conclusion: I think this game will satisfy the majority of the target audience with its customization options and modes of play. There aren't a lot of songs here, but the game is done well enough in every other respect to help make up for that.

Pros: More of a party game than the original, Lots of stuff to customize, Plenty of appealing characters to choose from – even, should you be so inclined,, guy, cheerleaders, (!)
Cons: No Wii MotionPlus support, No challenge whatsoever, Song selection is questionable, to say the least
