Alvin & The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked Video Game

The new movie is out. "Alvin & The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked" is a great movie that your whole family will love. I was able to take Zachariah to see it before Christmas. I went knowing he would like it, but I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it too. The Chipmunks and Chipettes are together again and on a cruise this time. Of course Alvin finds a way to spoil things for everyone. Go see this movie, your kids will thank you!

Now you can find the Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked Video Game. It's currently available for Wii, Kinect for Xbox 360 and Nintendo DS. We got the game for our Wii. We enjoy our dance games. I have all of the Just Dance games and some other similar ones too. My son and I can dance together to our favorite songs. Now my son can enjoy it a little more with Alvin and the rest of the gang dancing to their own music.

I like that the Alvin and The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked Video Game is great fun for everyone. The songs have a wide appeal that my parents, myself and my son can all enjoy. The characters are easy to set up in the game. You can pick with Chipmunk or Chipette you want to be. And you can take survey to see which character you are most like. (Mine is Jeanette.) The dance moves are pretty simple, and as long as you are on the beat you'll do well with this. I think that it's easier for my son that the Just Dance games. The moves are simpler, so it makes it easier for him to get them.

There is only one thing that I don't like about the game. This is a common complaint with me about video games too. I have a 5 year old son who loves this type of game, but it's rated E10+. This is supposed to mean for everyone 10 years old and older. I've found that almost all of my dance games have this higher rating. I believe it's for some of the song lyrics. I haven't found anything terrible that I don't want my son listening to, so if he plays this game along with me I OK it. At least then if I do hear something I don't want him to, we can change the song or turn it off.

I think that your family will enjoy the Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. You can find it in stores and online now- Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked.
