The first We Cheer has always been one of our favorites. When the second one came out, we couldnt waite to get our hands on it. It did not disappoint, and is even better than the first. New songs, new moves, better levels, and new characters. This has become a fast addiction!
Fun Factor – 5 out 5
As if the first one wasn’t fun enough, this one is even better. There’s some new moves and lots of new songs (quite a few that mom is in love with, actually). It’s even more addicting than the first one, that’s for sure.
Family/Group Factor – 4 out of 5
An improvement to the first We Cheer is they added boys to the squad. Even though my 9yr old son still isn’t quite interested in it, some boys might be. Not all the songs are “girly girl” songs, so they could get into it too. There’s also a 2 player option as in the first one, where you can cheer together using just 2 remotes.
Too Easy or Too Hard – 5 out of 5
Another improvement from the first We Cheer is they’ve added an “easy” level which you can work on and still unlock new songs. Instead of “hard” and “harder”, there’s now “beginner”, “intermediate”, and “advanced”. The little ones should have no problems getting past the beginner levels, but still a challenge for the advanced levels so it keeps you playing.
Activity Factor – 5 out of 5
At first I thought it was slightly less than the original We Cheer, but quickly found out this wasnt the case. It does get you moving and I was VERY sore the next day after playing this for just an hour.
Child Friendly – 4 out of 5
There’s still no voice in the second We Cheer, and you are forced to read some things on the screen. This could be a problem for younger ones wanting to play. Also some of the songs, while edited, you may have a problem with. Songs such as “Just Dance – Lady GaGa” and “Girlfriend – Aviral” may not be the best for little ones.
Variety – 5 out of 5
Another improvement in the second addition of our favorite game is the amount of variety. You have the ability to unlock songs faster, and start out with more than in the original. There’s also a new challenge area you get to unlock as you go up in rank.
Addiction – 5 out of 5
Several hours logged and we still have yet to “beat” the game. This is for sure addictive, and it’s hard to find a stopping point. I’ve heard myself saying “just one more song!” many times, even going back to my favorite songs and trying to beat my high scores even though I haven’t gotten through everything yet.
As mentioned before, they’ve made a LOT of improvements to the first We Cheer, making this one of our new favorites. Even still we go back to the orignal once in awhile to play some of our favorite cheers, but this one has kept us well entertained. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
