Holiday Gift Guide Day 38 - Country Dance 2 Wii Game Review

I've had an aversion to video dance games for years.  When I was in high school I tried one of those dance games with the mat on an older gaming system and I absolutely hated it.  I had danced all of my life and whatever that game was, it was not dancing,  I thought that the timing was off and I did not consider stepping on different colored squares dancing.

Since technology has improved quite drastically in the last 10 years, I decided it was time to give one a try.  I don't know very much about Country Music, but I do know a bit about Country Dancing, so I decided to go with the new Country Dance 2 from Game Mill.

I was pleasantly surprised.

I was on a Country Dance team in college and did a lot of Country Dancing.  The game really was reminiscent of all of the line dancing that I used to do.  I thought the moves were fun and appreciated the fact that they weren't the same in every song.

The game features
  • Star-Studded Soundtrack: 30+ country hits from country music’s biggest artists!
  • User-Friendly Gameplay: Easy to jump in and play – just grab the Wii Remote™ controller and replicate the onscreen dance moves! Fun for all ages and all dance abilities!
  • Don’t be Shy, Belt it Out: New sing-along features and scrolling lyrics let you dance AND sing!
  • Grab a Partner: Supports up to four players at once including duet dancing option that features unique choreography for each player during the same song!
  • Calorie Counter: Dancing is a great way to burn some calories; take advantage of the all new calorie counter!
It's been awhile since I danced, but I didn't realize how out of shape I was until I played the game.  After a few rounds I started to feel the workout in my legs - nothing unbearable, but it was there,

I wish that I had tried a dance game when we first got our Wii.  It was really fun and a good workout!
    To Buy - The game includes music from includes music from Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, George Strait, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood and many, many more. Country Dance 2 for the Wii has a SRP of $39 but you can get it right now on Amazon for just $32. If you like Country Music or dance games, this game is definitely worth trying out.
