Excerpt: Majesco Entertainment has one monster Christmas video game line up this year. At every turn there has been an interesting video game from them this year. Alvin and the Chipmunks Chipwrecked follows the movie of the same name loosely. There are thirty generally well known songs in this home console Xbox 360 Kinect video game.
Conclusion: Graphics: 3/10 (simplistic as expected) Sound: 5/10 (annoyingly sung but good songlist) Difficulty: 5/10 (5 star all songs requires heavy effort) Kinect controls: 7/10 (Seems to react okay, quick menu swiping) Gameplay: 2/10 (fun for a kid,or if you like dancing in front of your TV) Multiplayer 2/10: No online,co-op available) Achievements: 9/10 (a simple GamerScore boost, except 1 but managable with effort) Final Verdict: 5/10 , Excellent for GamerScore if you have no...
Excerpt: It's easy to describe Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked as a Kinect dance game, because Kinect dancing is about all there is to it. The movie tie-in comes in the form of the game's story mode, but the "story" here is a short sequence of comic book balloon conversations between a couple of chipmunk heads at the bottom of the screen before each group of four or so tracks is unlocked.
Excerpt: If you like dance games, but wish the music was more…high pitched, then prepare to be dazzled. Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked lets you groove to 30 popular tunes, all performed by those lovable chipmunks. The track list is filled with fun, pop rock that is perfect for younger players to rock out with. Chipwrecked if of course targeted at those younger players, so the entire experience is designed around that audience.
Excerpt: Want to keep your wee ones active? You could do worse than this Dance Central –alike featuring helium-voiced covers of 30 Chipmunk-ified pop songs. Alvin and company bring plenty of charm while simple dance moves and a forgiving scorekeeper ensure your dancing tykes are having good times. The fun factor largely boils down to two key elements: your age and your tolerance for the Chipmunks’ shrill voices.
Pros: + Very simple, + Big Gamerscore rewards are easily nabbed.

Excerpt: This holiday season it seems dance games have been hitting store shelves at a record pace. Titles like Just Dance 3, Dance Central 2, Everybody Dance and the Black Eyed Peas Experience are just a few dance games that come to mind. All them take full advantage of either the PlayStation Move or the Xbox 360 Kinect motion controls too.
