  1. An absolute joy to play. Though it certainly does its job as a party game and will definitely help liven up your next get-together, it is equally enjoyable when played by itself. Its unique mash up of dancing and karaoke make it an irresistible choice for audiophiles and rhythm-lovers everywhere!

    Pros: Easy, accessible fun. Song list is varied and interesting. Cons: You can't sing and dance at the same time, there's no online play and the replay value is low.
  3. As with most Wii games, it really glistens with more than one player. If you're willing to commit to Boogie, mind, body and sooooul, it's a goddamned blast, channeling the same enthusiastic participation we all had last year when firing up Wii Sports first time. But then it's all over too quickly, and too easily.
  4. Boogie has its moments, but the game lacks fluidity, the karaoke lacks cool tracks and the rhythm sometimes just lacks, full stop. [Oct 2007, p.62]
  5. If this is a trial run for "Boogie 2," we just hope it works better next time. [Nov 2007, p.84]
  6. It’s a shame that Boogie’s gameplay falls so flat because there’s a tremendous amount of potential here.

    I think Boogie is a horrible game. It’s so bad; I’m nearly offended that I even had to play it. Sure it’s aimed squarely at the casual market, but casual gamers aren’t necessarily stupid gamers.

    If you like Karaoke, this game is great; the dancing is just gravy! The style of the graphics is also great, as well as features such as a If you like Karaoke, this game is great; the dancing is just gravy! The style of the graphics is also great, as well as features such as a music video editor and character customization. The variety of songs is pretty good; I guess my one complaint about this game would be: I want more songs! Might be due to a limitation of disc space, but I doubt it. Expand

    Great party game for all your friends and family, not for the hardcore gamer, but thats not what the wii is about. The singing/dancing combo Great party game for all your friends and family, not for the hardcore gamer, but thats not what the wii is about. The singing/dancing combo is a fantastic combination.

    Only get this game if you can't wait for a real Karaoke game. The game graphics are cute, but the replay value on this game is Only get this game if you can't wait for a real Karaoke game. The game graphics are cute, but the replay value on this game is astronomically low. Maybe Karaoke Revolution tainted me, but I just couldn't get into the Karaoke controls on Boogie. It didn't seem as responsive, and the timing was harder to pick up since the text shows a whole frame before your music. And you can't seem to easily track the text and the music keys at the same time. Expand

    It's kind of fun for about a half an hour then it's old. So sad that I asked for this on my birthday!

    This game was fun for exactly 8 minutes. Then it was on the shelf.
