  1. The only thing you really need to know about McGroovz is as follows: this game is the first dancing game on the Nintendo GameCube, featuring pop songs that should be familiar to many and a dance mat that's included with the package. If you haven't been sold on the deal by reading that, not much else is going to convince you.
  2. We don't want to work. It's not fun. MC Groovz Dance Craze makes it fun just as "DDR" has. The difference here is that you don't have to work as hard with this game. You can move at your own pace and work your way up to "DDR's" level.
  3. The things I liked about the game overwhelmed what I didn't like. If you want a high score, you can't be a stiff. You have to get into the groove and use your whole body.
  4. More fun to listen to than to play.

    The game lets you face off with another player (using two controllers), but the single-player optoins don't offer CPU competition. [March 2005, p.107]
  6. MC Groovz may feature The Fresh Prince's "Parents Just Don't Understand," but dancing to its poorly stepped, overly lengthy tracks just makes us feel like Carlton Banks.

    The simple truth is that the generic MC Groovz Dance Craze is a broken GameCube game. The dance work doesn't match with the music and therefore the title's dance challenges are not fun.
  8. Cheat Code Central

    There are 29 songs. This is the worst collection of tunes bar none. They are meant to appeal to the most affected families you can imagine. By that I mean shallow, bland morons.
