  1. 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.
  2. 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.

    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.
  4. 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]

    Well, I wanted to balance the user score, but I also wanted to be honest. This game is awful. Don't buy it. If at all possible, head to your nearest Wal-mart and shun it openly. Send complaints to everyone involved in the formation of this atrocity, being sure to be as rude as possible. Enjoy! Full Review »

    Came bundled with our Wii. Thankfully we didn't spend a dime extra as it would not have been even worth that amount.

    This is a game for children 8 or younger not die hard gamers being hard to fail and not having winners and losers is a big advantage for this age group. Full Review »
