  • Summary: [WiiWare] Helix is an innovative music-rhythm game designed for the Wii console. Use the Wii Remote controller to do dozens of exciting moves, including punches, circles, back fists, hooks and more. Be mesmerized by the eye-popping background visuals, which pulse to the beat of the music. Enjoy incredible replay value with 26 songs to play and three difficulty levels. Try to unlock all of the songs. This game is great for getting exercise plus having fun. No buttons are required, so it's easy for anyone to pick up but difficult for even the best players to master.

  1. The game has a ton of real value because there are plenty of songs to unlock, difficulty levels and the price is so low it makes it worth while to pick up even as an impulse purchase.
  2. Though similar to many other titles in the rhythm genre, Helix is a unique experience and feels more like real dancing than DDR ever has. The soundtrack is enjoyable and fun, and will keep you grooving until the end.
  3. Wii Fit is a pricier option for health conscious players who like to have a good time while getting in shape, but Helix does the trick and then some at a budget price of $10.
  4. Like any other rhythmic game, Helix is not a hardcore title and probably won't make the ones who are too serious about it happy.
  5. But if you're looking for an extensive gaming experience, you won't find it here, as once you unlock all the songs, it's just a matter of repetition.
  6. Much like its robot host, it's a bare bones facsimile of something with a lot more soul. Samba de Amigo may cost four times as much but even in its slightly disappointing Wii incarnation, it's still four times as much fun as well.
  7. The whole concept of Helix is better encapsulated in one of "Rayman 3"'s minigames. Alas, Helix isn't even remote-ly fun or entertaining. [Dec 2008, p.74]
