Country Dance 2 Wii Game Review



I am a huge fan of the Just Dance Wii games. They are so much fun. I've always liked music and dancing (from time to time). I don't seem like the dancing type, but once I get into it I have a lot of fun. And I have a decent sense of rhythm that really helps with these games. But this is the first time that I've been introduced to the Country Dance games. The new Country Dance 2 Wii game is a lot of fun to play, especially if you are a country music lover.

Country Dance 2 is a fun, energetic dance game that your whole family can do together. It has over 30 songs and different dances. And the songs are popular choices from hit country artists that you love. Here is a little more about the game:

I was excited to try this game. I must admit that I'm not a big country music fan. In fact I don't know many of the songs on here. But I do like being able to have some new dances and songs with the Country Dance 2 game. The movements are pretty easy to follow. There are some songs that are harder than others, but they are denoted that way. The calorie counter feature on the game is handy. When I do my dance games, I do it to get moving and work up a sweat.

This game is rated "E10+", which is for everyone over the age of 10. I'm not really sure why it's rated higher, because we really do pay attention to ratings in our house. My son is 5 and he does not usually play games that are over an "E" rating or watch movies/shows that are rated higher than his actual age. Call me mean, but that's the general rule. There are a few exceptions, and it's on a case by case basis. I do let him play the Just Dance games with me. I understand that they rating is because of some suggestive song lyrics. So far that has not been an issue for us (as far as him picking them up), so he can play with me. I think this game is the same. Lyrics are the only thing I see for the rating being higher. I have not played all the songs yet, so I don't know for sure. But for now if my son does want to play, he must play with me only. If I heard a song I don't like him listening to, we won't play that particular one.

Zachariah was funny playing this. He doesn't get what country music is since we don't listen to it much at all. When we did the first dance, he thought the "cowboys" were pretty fun. Then we he figured out all the dances had "cowboys", he was a little confused about that. I think some of the line dance type dances are good for him and easy to pick up on, so it was fun to play with him.

Country Dance 2 Wii game is available in stores and online now. This is a great gift or stocking stuffer for the country music (or dance) lover in your life.
