  • Summary: In All Star Cheer Squad, players immerse themselves into the world of competitive cheerleading as they experience the thrill and excitement of cheer through creativity, customization, style and teamwork. The release marks THQ's first original property created specifically for girls on Wii and Nintendo DS. (Ed: I suppose male cheerleaders are chopped liver?) In All Star Cheer Squad, players follow a year in the life of a cheerleader as they learn new cheers, participate in practices and create their own routines to make the squad and eventually become captain. High-energy gameplay includes squad competitions and one-on-one cheer-offs, where players use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to perform dozens of real-world cheer and dance moves. In order to ensure that All Star Cheer Squad has the latest cheer action and top routines, world-renowned cheerleading choreographer Tony G, best known for his work in the "Bring It On" movies, serves as chief consultant for the game. All Star Cheer Squad also incorporates use of the Wii Balance Board to get the player’s entire body involved in the game and add to the ultimate cheerleading experience. Players can customize the look of their cheerleader and squad including body, facial features, hair and outfits. [THQ] Expand

  1. I would say that All Star Cheer Squad would probably make a solid game for a younger kid that's getting interested in the sport. The movements definitely mimic the stuff that actually occurs on field or in the gym, and even if you're not a fan of cheerleading you'll realize that you've seen this stuff before, just from watching a football game or two.
  2. Unfortunately, the experience as a whole, deep as it may be, is as tethered as the remote and nunchuk.
  3. By the end of the tutorial, it becomes painfully clear that All Star Cheer Squad is a complete mess of a title, and it doesn't improve as you progress through the game.

    This game is great for anyone interested in Cheer at all. It has great difficulty and it keeps you entertained. The down side is that is very slow, The balance board is almost pointless and in the way. It's never recognizes the board and I spend most time waiting. The quick play is very fun and it's much quicker. This game is for any Cheer lover. Finally, a game aimed toward women gamers that is not for a 4 year old. Expand

    I like the story and competition of the game, however I bought the game because it utilizes the balance board. However, using the board takes up a lot of time due to waiting. The game also can't seem to recall that you've been using this board for the past hour and continues to detect it. That is very annoying. But the game itself is fun. Expand

    The screens take several minutes to load which makes the game really slow. You spend much more time waiting than playing. Using the balance board makes it even slower because you have to go through 4 warning and info screens for each exercise before it starts. it doesn't remember the board is there. Collapse

    This is not at all like cheerleading and a huge let down. The game is so slow and frustrating my daughters gave up on it quickly. Agree with other users in that the balance board option just makes it slower and more awkward. I'm just glad I rented it before I bought it. Expand
