As I mentioned in my previous post, my birthday is this week, and what better way to celebrate than to give my readers some presents. All week I'm going to be giving away stuff, starting with the Wii game "Dance on Broadway."
My Wii is mostly used by my oldest son and occasionally his father who plays all those Lego games with him, but "Dance on Broadway" is exactly the kind of game that I can enjoy. The aim is to mirror the Broadway dancers on big numbers from shows like "Chicago," "Hairspray," "Dreamgirls," and "Hair." In my house, even my two-and-a-half-year-old got in on the action, using the remote to "copy" his brother and sister, both of whom, I'm embarrassed to add, did better than I did at first.
But the really embarrassing part is the my husband, who is also a huge Broadway fan, apparently can do friggin' jazz hands better than I can, because he kept outscoring me -- except for on "Fame," which had a particularly difficult combination he couldn't master. I took seven years of tap, and all of a sudden he can do the I think there was something up with my remote control, but whatever!
All bitterness aside, this is every Broadway fan's dream game, although I imagine my 14-year-old nephew would be horrified at the mere thought of playing this game. The best part is that you can sing as you dance, since the lyrics crawl across the top of the screen, so you can get your karaoke on while you try to beat play your family and friends. Just remember that if you're playing with your kids, they may ask you odd questions like who "Timothy Leary" is after dancing to "Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In."
Professionally choreographed, this game is sure to make you laugh as you sing and dance to some of the best and catchiest showtunes (along with the ones I've mentioned, there's "All that Jazz," "Time Warp," "You Can't Stop the Beat," "Little Shop of Horrors," "We're in the Money" and more).
For a chance to win: Just leave a comment with your favorite Broadway showtune by midnight on Saturday, Sept. 18th, and I'll announce the random winner by Monday, Sept. 20th.
Honesty clause: I requested and was sent a review/giveaway copy from Ubisoft
