 What a fantastic game for the wii!  It got my entire family up and dancing, even the baby.  I couldn't believe how much fun this was for everyone, whether you are the person dancing as the Chipmunks or Chipettes OR just the pesky little sister (or daddy in our case) who is just dancing because it's so much fun.  To be honest with you, as I always am, I was a little leery at first, I had planned to play this alone one night when my children and husband were away, but that never happens so I was thinking maybe when they were in bed.  Then one night my youngest three went to bed and my oldest daughter wanted to play a video game.  I said "well, mommy has this one to review, do you want to try it out?"  And of course an excited little girly squeal came out "YES!!"  And so began our night of fun and dancing excitement.  At first my daughter played, then my husband and finally it was my turn to get up there and embarrass myself but busting a move Chipmunk-style.  Well, in all honesty, I had the most fun that I have had in a very long time.  We have played games like DDR (the original, with the mats) and I didn't like them very much, to say the least I was not very good at them at all.  But the thing I absolutely love about this wii game compared to the matted style of the original DDR.... you are NOT stuck standing in one place.  This game is not about moving your feet tediously around a mat back and forth and back and forth.  In this wonderful high energy game you MUST move that body.  I mean it, get up, dust off your dancing shoes (or don't wear any, it's likely safer that way) and when the song starts be prepared to sweat your buns off.  This game encourages it's players to get up and move.  We have played some wii games and the children get lazy and sit down to do it, I honestly don't think you could with this game.  You need to get up and get dancing and even if you don't "like" to dance and want to sit down, I'm pretty sure this awesome soundtrack will keep you on your feet.  Who need exercise videos, throw this little disc into your wii and you will get that workout you've been too lazy to do.  I know that, despite my dislike of dancing, I love this game.  Playing it with our family is absolutely an amazing experience, and an opportunity for everyone, not just the "player" to get up and dance and have fun.  Chipwrecked has a fantastic lineup of songs, I was very impressed with the music on this game.  My daughter looked at me funny as I was trying to catch my breath from dancing and singing these songs that she doesn't know.... SUPER FUN GAME!!!  The graphics aren't bad for a video game, as you can see in the photos.  Very enjoyable experience!!!

   We even pulled this game out for our annual New Years gathering and our guests danced along too.  My favorite part is when you get to do a solo and I just go very crazy dancing, the chipette on the screen can't keep up, it gets my children and my husband laughing so hard, and I surprise myself a little just by the fact that this lazy butt can move that fast.  I really love this game, if you have children who love to dance, like my three girls, I would advice you to get this game. 
But this review is based solely on how I feel about the Wii version as that is the game that I've played.  I'm sure the Kinect version is likely pretty good, but as for the DS, I just don't see how it could be as much fun.  Luckily my big girls have a DS so we may have to find out.  Then compare the two?
