  1. I would fully recommend this game to people who know a little one who loves music, and is just starting to get into the world of video gaming.
  2. It should have been a highly amusing rhythm-action game, but it's ruined by bad control and a flimsy structure. [Issue#19, p.85]
  3. Though largely inoffensive in its sloppiness, Alvin and the Chipmunks amounts to a forgettable budget title priced like a premium release this holiday season - as if you needed another reason to abstain from it.
  4. 17
    When you can't fail a song, your character models don't even seem to be performing while tracks are playing in the background, and there's no impact on how the Chipmunks play, you realize that this is a weak attempt at cashing in on the upcoming movie, one that's being sold at full price instead of at a discount, no less.
