Conclusion: and Dancepad enthusiasts, as well as the younger gamers, this game is a very good buy, especially after the price dropped to the $40 range. Give it a few months, and maybe it'll find it's way to the $19.99 section.
Excerpt: I hate kids’ movies. Watching talking fish tell jokes for two hours is about as appealing to me as a root canal. And kids’ games? What the hell do I know about kids’ games? I don’t so much hate them as I am totally ignorant of them. I barely remember my childhood and the games I played were controlled by a single button. Normally, none of this is a problem, but when Shark Tales appeared before me, a kids’ game based on a kids’ movie, I was faced with a dilemma.
Conclusion: Shark Tale is a fantastic kid's game and truly is a breath of fresh air...Er, water for a genre usually plagued by below average cash-ins. It has substantial long-term appeal, as gaining an Elite rating on all chapters is an all but impossible task and there are heaps of extras to unlock. So dust off your dance mat, dump the kids in front of the TV and put your feet up as A Shark Tale should keep them entertained for quite a while.
Pros: fantastic production values, fun and varied gameplay, a chance to use that forgotten dance mat, very suitable for younger gamers
Cons: no multi-player, dancing chapters are hard without a dance mat
