    We Cheer's so unresponsive, in fact, that I spent four hours in championship mode, trying to beat the easiest song -- Hoku's "Perfect Day" -- to no avail. It's a fate I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.

    If anything, I can't help but see We Cheer as a missed opportunity. The game is filled to the brim with personality and has something for everyone on its rather impressive track list, but the gameplay itself is simply exhaustive trial and error routines that leave you with a sour taste in your mouth.
  3. It won't appeal to anyone over eight. [Apr 2009, p.83]
  4. We Cheer isn’t too extravagant in game modes or innovative gameplay, but it’s an excellent diversion for a weekend.
  5. While We Cheer is certainly no Guitar Hero, it would be deemed enjoyable to many who appreciate similar games in the music genre.
  6. It veers between demanding precise movements and accepting vague waves. [May 2009, p.78]
  7. I would have enjoyed the game even more, however, were it not so brutally difficult. [Dec 2008, p.96]
  8. We Cheer is an excellent and novel take on creating a game that utilizes Wii's motion controls for something intuitive and unexpected.
  9. Overall, We Cheer's challenging gameplay is exhilarating. However, it does shatter preconceptions about the game. We Cheer can't be played casually and it can't be played carelessly. It's plenty of fun, but whereas Wii Sports was happy to have you simply move, We Cheer challenges you to perform.
  10. It had potential but at the end of the day it just doesn't work. This really needs Wii MotionPlus.
  11. One look at the cover of We Cheer and it's far too easy to skip right past it on the way to another rhythm game, but that would be a mistake, especially if you're looking for a challenge, as few games offer such a solid mix of difficulty and song selection.
  12. If you happen to be a real cheerleader or someone who dances a lot, then We Cheer is a great buy. (However, it also means you likely already do this for free.) It's also a great buy if you like rhythm games and you have lots of stamina.

    I must say, reviews saying the game is unresponsive have no rhythm! The game insists in timing and accuracy. I have completed the game to the end credits and loved every moment. It is not easy as the 3+ rating might lead you to believe. It has a cool track list, with some thumping house an enough challenging routines to keep the most coordinated play entertained. The game is best played with 2 users using 4 wiimotes (one in each hand). Bloody brilliant game! Full Review »

    The controls are so responsive and so unforgiving, these qualities give the game so much addiction that you will be playing until you PRO every single song available.
    If you are looking for a new Rhythm game to try or are a fan in this genre, look into We Cheer, haven't had this fun since DDR and SingStar.

    this could have been a great game, but a) - Was very unresponsive b) - aftercompleting at least one song in each area it unlocks new place to go but unfortunately then locks all the previous areas to the same songs, very frustrating, I tried it out twice to the same problem Very disapointing Full Review »
