The word "damn," "hell" and "ass" can be heard in two of the songs. Other inappropriate words are muted out. In Kanye West's "Stronger," for example, there is a line that goes "You could be my black Kate Moss tonight/Play secretary, I'm the boss tonight/And you don't give a f--k what they all say right?" (muted out). Avril Lavigne's "Girlfriend" includes "Don't pretend I think you know I'm damn precious/And Hell Yeah I'm the mother-f--king princess." In "Toxic," Britney Spears sings "With a taste of your lips/I'm on a ride."

Other than the songs being commercial hits, there isn't any other branding.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a game where players sing (using an enclosed microphone) and dance with the Wii remote. Some of the songs have suggestive lyrics, though most of the swear words are muted out. If you owned last year's version of Boogie, and still have a microphone, you can pick up the game for $49.99 instead of $59.99 for the game bundled with a microphone.
Is It Any Good?
Tween girls who are into singing and dancing to pop music will get a kick out of this game. Song selection includes many contemporary pop hits from the likes of Britney Spears, Kanye West, Rihanna, Fergie, Katy Perry, Alicia Keys and Natasha Bedingfield, along with some techno dance tracks, too. For parents who want to avoid all sexually suggestive lyrics, this is not a good fit. But since most of the offensive language is muted out, Boogie SuperStar is an enjoyable "girls night in" for tweens and young teens ages 11 and above. The controls are tighter than last year's version, and the whole sci-fi alien theme that didn't quite work in the original has been replaced with a create-your-character and try to be a star theme. Boogie SuperStar allows tweens to sing along and move to music they really enjoy.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
