Nickelodeon Dance was recently on offer on the Xbox marketplace for £19.99 so I couldn’t resist. I have a nearly 3 year old daughter who just loves to dance and loves Dora the Explorer. I Thought this would be a great game for us to play together. It was - until half way through a song when she got bored and started to jump on our bed! Sigh! It didn’t matter that she left the playing area because the game still continues and we still built up stars together.
What’s great about this game is, that even if you don’t do the moves correctly you still earn stars. That's perfect for the age group this game is designed for.
Achievement-wise the rewards are really simple, and all are obtainable in 5-6 hours. The only downfall I’ve found to the game is there are not very many characters. I kind of expect all the Nickelodeon characters to be in it but it's mostly Dora the Explorer characters. It would probably have been better to Name it “Dora Dance”. It's still awesome never the less and I even enjoy playing it when my daughter is in bed (yes I just said that, I’m a child inside).
There are several modes and levels, from beginner to work out. The work out mode actually feels like you're doing a work out. It uses proper work out moves and not dance moves, although both really are giving you a work out.
Over all this is a brilliant game for children and adults alike and so cheap too.
