I recieved Boogie as a christmas present about two years ago. as soon as i got it i started playing on it. I just want you all to see what you are buying before you buy it
When you insert the game and click on it on the wii menu, it comes up with the way to put your wrist srtap on. it then has a plain black screen which will then change so it is a plain black screen with a white little light in the bottom right hand corner; this means your game is loading.
After this, a pink 'EA' sign will come up. Then the music will begin, there will be a pink man singing 'Your the one that you want' and the WII remote and nunchuk dancing. After that, a black haired woman will come on singing. To skip all this press A.
The blue boogie screen will come up and you must press A to begin. Next comes the part where they make sure your wii remote is connected so just point at the sensor and press A. If you wish to connect your nunchuk, connect it then press A.
Next, is the part where you can choose your character and personalise it. so just click a spare space and press customize. On this you can change the characters Hair, clothes, accesories... Once you are done, press A, and this will be your character.
On your screen now, there should be you character standing in the middle of the screen with icons around it. If you wanted to do karoake you would click on the microphone; dancing the dancer etc.etc.
If you choose to dance or sing, you will still be using the same songs.
There are a total of 38 songs,which have a series of different singers, some more modern that others.
The difficulty of this game varies, depending on your ability to sing loudly.The microphone does not pick up the sound of your voice uness you put it right to your mouth or sing very, very loudly!
*When is the best to play it?*
I believe this game is best played with 2 or 3 of you as you can then compete against each other.
This game is full of classics, so children may not know the songs. But there are some britney spears and Rihanna songs on here to.
The detail put into this game is spectacular. it is all bright and is packed full of different images. Everytime you pick a song, you can pick a background to go along with it which will then be where your performance is staged.
I looked on Play.com and it was £15 for the microphone and the game. Which is extremely good as it was about £30 when it first came out, so i recommend going there, but i think tesco, HMV and game also sell this product.
The microphone is white with a long cable which reaches quite far but can get a bit tangled. so i wouldnt wrap it up.
I hope this helped :)
Being a karaoke fan and after enjoying playing High School Muscial 2 sing it on the wii I went out to buy it. I could not find it so I bought wii boogie instead - as it was another singing game and you got a microphone. I have to say that this has been the most disappointing wii game that I have purchased to date. The microphone attaches easily into a USB slot at the back of the wii - however the rest of the game is very difficult to set up - and if you just want to use it to sing karaoke it can take a while to navigate through the disc to find this option. There are a few (mayb e 3) good songs on there but they are all locked and you have to purchase these with credits you get from singing the other songs - a lot of which I do not even know so just go through the motions to get the points. I would definitely not recommend this game.
First of all, I liked that you could create your own little person and personalise it, and you had to get points by singing nicely and this gained access to more songs.
Unfortunately, that's pretty much the only good words I have about this. I thought that the microphone you got with it was of bad quality, it felt cheap. Also, the songs it came with (which arn't many) we're old and you couldn't earn many others either.
I didn't also like that you had to have another person with the controllers to dance, it's like they would have to pull the short straw!
Initially, I wanted to get the Singstar (For PS2) and I wish I had, this game has been left of the shelf since about a day after we got it, a few months ago and is a complete waste of money!
I also didn't like that that no matter how loud I turned the volume up, it still felt like it was quiet and this was off putting, and the songs being played we're sometimes not the correct words and not the original song being played, but a cheap, tacky cover version.
Well... when this game came out I was overwhelmed with excitement! After I opened it I discovered it wasn't as good as I expected but never the less... it is still a good game.
The main downfall is that you can't connect more than one mike. It is a shame that when you have people over for a good time that you can't do duets but never the less, we all sing anyway.
There is a small selection of songs which are mostly pop which is quite a shame - so if your looking for variety this is not the game for you.
The dancing area of the game is very simple but quite effective. You have to move the Wii-mote in time with the rhythm. Yes... you do look stupid and it is not really natural dancing but it can become quite enjoyable.
Story mode can be quickly completed which is a shame and you also unlock most of the songs quite quickly. Though this may sound like a bad thing, if you use the game for family parties it's nice to have all the songs unlocked to be used.
This game is good for a laugh and is reasonably easy to use and pick up but if you're looking for a serious singing game then this is not for you.
I brought this game as I loved Singstar and I thought it would be a great idea if you could dance at the same time. However, when the game arrived I was very dissapointed. The game isn't very good and gets boring very quickly. The game is aimed at young people and alienates everyone else.
The gameplay isn't very good as you only do the dancing with your hands and there are very limited moves. The singing is not much better with backing singers helping you out. This ruins the game and makes it bad as the backing singers are young and don't sound very good.
The game is aimed at younger people but the songs are older and they won't know them meaning they don't like the game. There is not fun in singing a song you don't remember.
The graphics aren't very good and look poor. The game has no online mode and doesn't have much replayability as most people will be bored after a couple of sessions.
I decided that after playing a friends singstar on the PS2 that I would get Boogie for my wii as I thought that it would be better as you can dance at the same time. When I bought the game it was priced at £29.99 this included the microphone. It now costs £12.60 on Amazon.
The game is supposed to let you sing or dance using either the microphone included for the singing or the wii remote and nunchuk for the dancing. There is a limited number of songs which are quite recent songs so you will know them.
My opinion on the game is not great - the dancing is very limited to what moves you can do as you are using the wii remote and moving your arms round and round really isn't my idea of dancing. The singing is ok but they are all cover versions instead of the actual originals which is quite off putting and it's a lot easier to score points on this game than other similar games. In fact with songs I didn't know I hummed along to them and got loads of points!
I think this game is aimed at kids but not all kids enjoy it either. I let my neice have a shot for a couple of weeks (hoping she would keep it) but she gave it back to me saying it wasn't fun and she was bored of it. Her mum then told me it was only used for a couple of days then never looked at again.
I have heard really fantastic reviews about it but for me it doesn't even compare to Singstar on the playstation.
I got Boogie for Christmas and OK I never thought that I was going to get this game. Boogie is pretty bad as it features cover tracks and not the normal tracks. First of all when you start the game you get this annoying guy talking about how to play the game and you cannot skip it. Wait a moment I have already read the book I got with the game now I have to wait over 15 minutes to here some silly guy telling me how to play.
If you hate pop music then this game is not really for you because all most every track is pop music. For the price this game is its pretty much beyond a joke its about £49.99 - £39.99 come on they could at least put the price down. You can also dance with this game but what were EA thinking bringing this game out they must of been mad. There are far better games you can get for your Wii just dodge this game. Well I give this game 2 star I don't know why because I hate it but I suppose they tried and failed. Even singstar on the ps2 is way better because it features the real track with music video.
But every time I try to play it I just get bored and the game it's self is just not fun I find this game appeals more to the girls. But overall this is what I think also I need to add it is really hard to keep up with the game with the text been so small.
Microphone works great in your computer though.
Boogie is a good family party game, you can sing and dance and anybody of all ages can play. You get a USB microphone with the game which allows you to do karaoke. There are 5 different characters that all have their own story, the music is limited and a bit slow and some time the controls can be hard to master. You can sing duets or group songs, also you get points for great moves you do and singing, you can go to the shop and buy new out fits unlock songs and also buy new stages to perform on, with this game you can record yourself singing and dancing and then edit it after which is quite a good feature. At first the game was very exiting and I enjoyed playing it however now I have found that its getting a bit boring and might trade It in for some thing better. And I would recommend it if you can get it at a cheap price.
