Samba de Amigo (Wii)

 

When Samba de Amigo first appeared on the Dreamcast eight years ago, it marked a new standard for exciting rhythm-based gameplay and expensive, game-specific peripherals ($79.99 for a pair of maracas!). How fitting, then, that in this golden age of...

Every once in a while, I come across a game that is hard to judge. Initially very fun, Samba De Amigo first struck me as a must have Wii game. It was great; shaking the maracas in time to a number of well-known samba styled songs. An alternative to...

The Wii has certainly earned a reputation when it comes to revitalising old games. Originally released on Sega's ill-fated Dreamcast console, this zany and fun game is the perfect partner for the Wiimote controller.

Whether you're rolling balls or shaking maracas, Sega knows that everything is more fun with monkeys.

Wii Remote controls are not always terribly accurate; lots of repeated songs from previous entries in the series

It’s as if you’ve been invited to a party but your host has written down the order you have to eat the snacks in. Cheesy football first, one hula-hoop next... all around you looks and sounds like a party, but you’re sure as hell not at one. The circles...

Samba de Amigo and its manically smiling monkey first appeared on the Dreamcast a number of years ago. What really set it apart from other games at the time (and would still set it apart today) was its specialized controllers that resembled a pair of...

Imagine a cooking show that showed you what to do, and then could see you doing it. The game could offer helpful advice on how to stir, or slice. Think about a sermon where you interact with the pastor while learning about the Holy Bible. Nike+ Kinect...
