Shut up and take it

August 16, 2007

If you haven’t heard, the new rhythm-dance game for Wii, EA’s Boogie, was not terribly well received by those elitist bastards who review games. A sad turnout for a new IP that was much pined for in the Wii wasteland. Particularly cruel, 1UP had this to say:

The fact that this game is fun for exactly 20 minutes, and only in a group of two or more, should keep you from buying this game. In the end, Boogie is light on dancing, light on karaoke — a jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none moment of fluff.

I dunno about you, but when someone feels that strongly about something in a negative way, i tend to believe them.

In response to this, Boogie’s producer Jean-Charles Gaudechon cried on MTV GameFile’s shoulder and let this off his chest:

“Difficultly should come from the game. It should be easy to dance. It should be tough to dance on a certain level of difficulty.”

Ok… but how does that address the whole “fun for 20 minutes” barb? It doesn’t, does it, Jean-Charles? I didn’t think so.

    We should all wait until Wii Fit comes out next year for our excercise game fix…

    For now, stick to Metroid Prime 3 for this year’s Wii stellar game. And play more DS games.

    DS games is where it’s at right now!
