Let’s Cheer for Kinect gets a rah-rah review
The Xbox Kinect cheerleading game Let’s Cheer has tuck-jumped up my wish list since I tried the free downloadable demo from Xbox Live, and also since it got an impressive 8 on a scale of 10 from 123Kinect. Let’s Cheer combines aspects of Dance Central, We Cheer and karaoke games (you have to yell actual cheers at the Kinect mike to score points – parents, grab those earplugs) and seems to have hit the target.
In addition to the usual sideline cheers, the game includes dance routines to licensed hits, including Lady Gaga’s “Just Dance” which seems to be everywhere except, um, Just Dance games. Other songs shared by We Cheer and Let’s Cheer are “That’s The Way (I Like It)” and of course “Mickey”, and Let’s Cheer goes a step further by bringing the cheertastic hit “Hollaback Girl” to the game console. Whoo!
