Are you a Dancing Queen?  Well, once you pop this video game into your Wii console, you will be?  I was sent a copy of this video game by Ubisoft, and couldn’t stop playing it and singing along to the movie all weekend.  I am a huge ABBA and Mama Mia fan, so I couldn’t wait to try this video game out, once I heard it was being released. 

Just look at the fun graphics from the game:




Even if you have two left feet like I do, you will not stop laughing and having fun once the game begins.  And, with the added bonus of live concert coverage, photos, and more from ABBA, this would make any ABBA fan go crazy, and make you want to get up and dance and sing along.  The only downfall, which will be fixed soon is that you need a microphone in order to do the karaoke mode.  I don’t have one, but will pick one up this weekend, just to try it out. 

So, if you are a Just Dance fan, love ABBA or their songs, or just want a fun way to get up and move and shake your groove thing, then head to your local store and pick up a copy of this video game today.  It will get you dancing and grooving as soon as the first song begins!!

Disclosure:  I was sent a copy of this game from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  The views above are mine and mine alone.
