Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

The game is fast-paced and requires good coordination and rhythm to keep up with the movements, so this isn't a game for everyone. Instructions are text-based and there is no voice-over explaining the game, so it isn't appropriate for young girls. The instructor is a woman with an exaggerated cartoon figure who addresses the player by the avatar's name, striking sexy poses as instructions are imparted, punctuated with squeals, giggles, and "ohs."

Players will definitely get an aerobic workout playing this game, but the fast pace is unforgiving . The moves are more dance moves than cheerleading moves, and the game starts off with footwork as well. Despite the dubious stereotyping found in some of the cartoon characters and the constant annoying squeals, this game can be fun and challenging for those familiar with cheerleading.
