One thing I’m not ashamed to admit about myself is I have no rhythm. You would think this would stop me from attempting to dance, however I guess I have no shame either. Whenever I hear music, I just can’t stop my booty from starting to shake all about.
So this holiday season, I decided to have a little get together with a few of our neighbors and do something a little different. I decided we would liven things up a bit and instead of listening to holiday music, we would dance the night away to the music of ABBA.
Now if you aren’t familiar with ABBA, I’m guessing you are probably slightly younger than I am or you’ve been hiding under a rock somewhere. Since I was born in the 70’s, I am a girl that likes to boogie down disco-style as often as I can. While I guess ABBA was really considered more of a pop group than a disco group, I still think they made some really great songs to break out your best disco moves too.
In getting with the disco theme of the nights event, I broke out the spinning mini disco ball, dimmed the lights and turned on the Wii. Yep, you heard correctly! I turned on the Wii because Ubisoft has a new game on the market called ABBA: You Can Dance.
ABBA: You Can Dance is from the creators of the much loved game, Just Dance. You may notice some similarities between the two, but ABBA: You Can Dance has (you guessed it!) all ABBA Music to help you get your groove on. The other added twists that make this game unique are a karaoke feature and mini musical option.
I didn’t have USB microphones for our gathering, so we didn’t get to sing or at least with microphones that is. From what I was hearing from all of us, it was probably better that there were no microphones available. If you don’t know the words to all the ABBA songs, no need to worry, you can select the feature that scrolls the words along the bottom of the screen.
The ABBA: You Can Dance game did a great job of making the party a hit. It is so much fun to see people kick back and have fun with each other. What I heard most of my guests saying is that they really enjoyed that four players could dance at the same time. I guess they felt better making a fool of themselves in groups as opposed to alone. I don’t mean that to be ugly at all, it’s just not easy keeping up with the moves on the screen and looking good while doing it.
If you enjoy dancing, singing, music from ABBA or all of the above, then you will enjoy this Ubisoft game for the Wii. It has all ABBA’s hottest hits like Take a Chance on Me, Mamma Mia, Dancing Queen and more. Rated E for Everyone 10+, you can enjoy the game with your whole family or a bunch of friends.
