Disadvantages: Everyone wants a go
I received Bop It Extreme 2 as a Christmas present years ago. It provided hours of entertainment trying to get a higher score than the rest of my family.
Bop It Extreme 2 was released in 2002 after the previous versions Bop It (1996) and Bop It Extreme (1998). It won the 'Electronic Game of the Year 2005' in the UK.
Bop It is a game that fires commands at you which you need to try and keep up. These are either 'bop it', 'twist it', 'spin it', 'flick it' or 'pull it'. The more commands you complete, the quicker it gets. If you do the wrong action or are timed out, game over.
'bop it' is the circle in the centre which you have to hit quite hard. 'twist it' is the yellow part which you must twist. 'spin it' is the orange circle you have to spin. 'flick it's is the green part which you flick and pull it is the blue part you pull.
To begin your game you have to 'pull it'. If you keep 'pulling it' you can choose which game you want to play, Solo, Pass It or One on One.
Solo is when you play the game alone. Pass it is when you play it solo until it says 'Pass It' and then you pass it to the next person to see how long you can keep it up. One on One is when two people play together using half of the game each.
By 'flicking it' you can change the mode of the game to either 'vox bop' which gives voice commands or 'beat bop' which gives musical commands.
To hear your high scores you must 'twist it', the maximum high score is 250. To change the volume you 'flick it' and choose either low, medium or high.
The Bop It Extreme 2 looks like a wheel and is a really addictive toy you can take anywhere. The only problem is everyone wants a go and no one wants to wait. We had a fantastic time playing this on Boxing Day when all the family was around.
The game is available in black, white and pink and requires 3AA batteries (not included). It can be bought for around £25 at Toys R Us which is quite expensive but it's worth it.
It is recommended for ages 8 and over but I know children which are 4 or 5 which have had just as much fun as everyone else. You'll love this game whatever your age.
Summary: Fantastic fun
