    It's a real shame that for every flicker of promise Boogie shows, there are twice as many setbacks just around the corner. For a karaoke/dancing merger, this is nowhere near as fun as it should be and for all the noise it makes, EA's Boogie just doesn't have the substance to succeed.
  2. Boogie's transition from the Wii to the PlayStation 2 makes an already mediocre game even worse.

    The biggest problem is the lack of difficulty and subsequent lack of replayability, but while it lasts Boogie offers a pleasant distraction from the usual crop of rhythm action games on the market. It's a strange title but one that's not without merit.
  4. It still stands out as a decent music game, but it's no less shallow on the PS2, and just as easy and short.

    Nice to look at and entertaining for a while, but is ultimately vacuous and short-lived. [Christmas 2007, p.92]

    In a word - Boo. [Jan 2008, p.114]
  7. With the lack of challenge, the absence of fun and no attempt at providing an experience for it’s target audience, EA has managed to produce one of the worst ‘games’ (if it can even be called that) that I have ever had the misfortune to play.
  8. A fun, albeit easy, rhythm game.
  9. On the PS2, the game isn’t helped by an equally mediocre dancing component. It isn’t horrible by any means, but there are cheaper, better karaoke alternatives available on the PS2.
  10. There’s a reason why we have the PlayStation Store. It’s for games like this that might contain some value but aren’t appropriate for a full $40 - $60 disc or bundle.

    Boogie will probably hold appeal for any young aspiring X Factor winner that's currently running his bike ragged to buy a PS3. [Issue#161, p.99]
  12. While Boogie seems like a good idea on the surface, it suffers from poorly executed gaming mechanics and too many bells and whistles without much substance.
