Kidzworld reviews the U-Dance game brought to you by Hasbro.

Aiming to follow up on what the Nintendo Wii has done with a highly immersive videogame experience, Tiger Electronics of Hasbro Inc. introduces the all-new U-Dance gaming system, which replaces a traditional videogame controller with you, the player.

The system doesn’t include the dance mats offered by other virtual dancing videogames (such as Dance Dance Revolution), and there aren’t any wires to worry about. The motion-sensing technology used by U-Dance uses each players’ body movements to control game play. And don’t worry about having to groove to any obscure or forgettable songs, either.

The U-Dance system boasts popular hits including Run It by Grammy-nominated pop artist Chris Brown, [kwlink 14905]ABC by Jackson 5 and Gonna Make You Sweat by C + C Music Factory. Kidzworld founder, Allen Achilles, whose real name is Alasdair Achilles, also tried it out. Wow! he can really dance. With U-Dance, you and your friends can perform actual dance moves, like jumping, sliding, crossovers and many more. Just hook the system console up to your TV, attach the wireless Motion Tags that come included with the game to your feet and dance the day (and maybe the night, too) away! Best of all, you can play U-Dance alone or share all the sweaty moments with a friend.

The U-Dance system includes:

  • 12 hit songs including classic dance smashes and music by some of today’s hottest artists

  • Energetic, fast-paced graphics

  • Three levels of game play for each of the 12 included songs

  • As you groove away to your heart’s content and improve your dancing skills, you can unlock additional levels of game play and cool new dance venues.

    Thumbs up:

  • You can play alone or challenge a friend to face-off arcade style by passing the Motion Tags off to your opponent (the unit will keep track of your all-time greatest scores)

  • If you need a break from dancing, swing by the lounge and try your luck at the Lounge Lizards game, where players are challenged to escape from the notorious lounge lizard characters

  • You can also take a break from dancing by hopping on the treadmill game to test your fast-footed moves and get a great workout at the same time

  • Thumbs down:

  • There are only 12 songs included with the game

  • You’ll need your own TV set to hook the game console up to
