This is a video game based on Hannah Montana The Movie. One of the themes in the game is about constantly shopping for new outfits -- Miley is constantly looking for outfits for her superstar alter ego Hannah Montana to wear.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a game based on Hannah Montana The Movie. It combines a story adventure with musical rhythm games and features 11 Hannah Montana songs. The theme of consumerism is present as the character of Hannah Montana/Miley Stewart shops a lot for clothes in stores sprinkled throughout this world. Plus, players will spend a lot of time changing Hannah/Miley's clothes. However, some of the gameplay allows for designing new clothes. The rhythm games require players to get up and move while playing.
Is It Any Good?
This game is good for fans of Hannah Montana. They will get to sing and dance to 11 songs, including 5 from Hannah Montana The Movie. The game skews as young as age 6 because the controls are very easy, and most of the dialogue is spoken aloud. Miley has an onscreen organizer that reminds you of your next task. And when you are controling Miley (or occasionally Hannah), an onscreen arrow always shows you the direction to head. Plus the adventure is peppered with fun minigames, including one where you get to ride a horse and make it jump over fences.
But the adventure isn't deep -- it is really a series of tasks involving fetching things for others. And while the Wii version gets kids moving as they join Hannah Montana on stage to perform, parents might not like the message the game sends to young girls about the need to do so much fashion shopping. This Hannah is a clothes horse.
