(Read more about our scoring system here)
An adorable game for little girls packed full of fun and an awesome addition to your Wii game collection! We couldn’t wait to open this game up and play it, and were very pleased with the amount of engergy it takes to play We Cheer. If you are looking for a game that gets your girls up and moving, this is the game without a doubt!
Fun Factor 5 out 5
Fun Factor – 5 out of 5 The adorable girls on the TV and the great music is super fun to do the routines to. You can’t help but have a blast dancing to the music! Because of the variety in the moves and songs on We Cheer, you don’t get bored easily.
Family/Group Factor – 3 out of 5
Unless you have four remotes and an all girl family, this game doesn’t score very high on the group factor. Of course the boys aren’t going to want to be cheering, and we don’t have the extra remotes to really take advantage of this option. However, the option IS there for multiple players, thus the reason for the 3. The music choices will probably please both kids and parents, since there are both older and newer songs available to cheer to.
Too Easy or Too Hard – 4 out of 5
Each routine and song has a difficulty factor displayed before you start, so you decide the difficulty level. Plus you go through a practice section before you jump into the main game play, making it pretty easy to get started. The routines aren’t easy, but then again mom was never a cheerleader so can’t do the moves as well as the pros can. We wouldn’t want the game too easy either, or else the kids would get bored.
Activity Factor – 5 out of 5
I couldn’t believe the workout this game gives you! I really wasn’t expecting a whole lot of movement, so it really did surprise me how much you do have to move with the cheers. Even the easy routines have you jumping and really moving your arms. If the basic game area wasn’t enough, they even have an excercise section. FANTASTIC on the activity scale!
Child Friendly – 4 out of 5
The only minor setback in this game is the lack of voices. Most screens and instructions need to be read, so if you have a younger one, be ready to help them out by reading. Although you play somewhat of a “follow the leader” when learning how to use the remotes together, so any child could do it. The adorable characters you get to cheer with and the fact there are no real harsh comments when you don’t do it perfect makes We Cheer child friendly as well.
Variety – 4 out of 5
When you get started, you have the option of picking your cheer captain out of several different girls. You also have quite a variety of places to cheer at with various difficulty levels, with more to unlock as you go. There’s also a practice area and an excercise area to choose from as well. Over all the variety of this game isn’t bad even keeping with the cheering focus.
Addiction – 5 out of 5
The drive to get a better score and get others to join your team is enough to keep you addicted. Plus the option of unlocking new songs and cheers makes you want to play more. Even older girls will love to play this one!
Overall, We Cheer for Wii did not disappoint us. I wanted a game specifically for my 6 year old daughter to play that would get her really moving (she has weight issues), and this game was everything I hoped it would be. While I would like a game that gets my son involved, this one is great for her and me to play individually.
