Excerpt: Grease on the Xbox 360 is two games in one. The first part of this Kinect game is the dancing. The second part of Grease is the karaoke. 505 Games allows us to sing and dance. This fits exquisitely. Most families should be familiar with Grease. If you are not, then let me explain. It is a movie based on the 1950s. Grease is the gel they put in their hair. This bad boy, and good girl had a summer romance.
Excerpt: Grease has some of the most fun musical numbers around, the kind you can’t help but sing and dance along with. This makes Grease an ideal choice for a game of this kind, where you can sing and dance to all your favorites. As with similar dance games on Kinect, the sensor tracks your movements and grades your performance. While you might think you know all the moves to these Grease routines, you’d better have the rhythm to keep up.
Excerpt: The music’s upbeat and jazzy, and the routines have interesting choreography, but Grease reminded us of why Barbie dolls bored us as kids: too perfect, plastic-y, and soulless. This game’s too shallow to be much fun: despite the decently intricate routines, the bar for being a top scorer is so low that doing well doesn’t really matter — you’ll keep moving through the songs like butter.
Pros: + Catchy music; decent choreography; Achievements flow like manna from the heavens.
Cons: ? Can anyone listen to the soundtrack without getting the songs stuck in their head?

Excerpt: In the beginning was the word, and the word was Grease. That’s right, boys and girls; this is not, as you may have thought if overhearing others talk about it, a game about the Eurozone debt crisis. It is in fact the quite literally all-singing, all-dancing Grease videogame that became more and more inevitable as microphones and motion controls became more and more popular within the games industry. The question now is: is this a dumb jock, or slick greaser?
Excerpt: Adaptée en jeu vidéo l'an passé sur Wii et DS, la célèbre comédie musicale Grease débarque aujourd'hui sur consoles HD sous la forme d'un party-game fourre-tout aussi brouillon que dispensable.
Conclusion: Etwas kurz, etwas fehlende Grease-Atmosphäre und einfach etwas unrund: Grease Dance ist nicht ganz auf der Höhe der Lizenz, mit der es begeistern will. Zwar macht es wirklich Spaß, einige Songs nachzutanzen oder zu singen, doch reicht das einfach nicht, um einen Kauf zu rechtfertigen. Sicher gibt es ein paar Minispiele; diese sind jedoch nicht wirklich spaßig.
Pros: Grease-Songs und Tänze, Guter Multiplayer, Tanz und Karoke funktioniert gut
Cons: Grafisch langweilig, Soundtrack nicht original, Kinect, Probleme in der Menüführung, Minispiele frustrierend
