In this version, you are not allowed as much freedom in selecting dancers to watch. At first, you can only choose to be Joey Fatone partnered with Kym Johnson or Jennie Garth partnered with Derek Hough. Playing through a complete season in Show mode will unlock an additional couple. To unlock them all, you will need to play through eight times.
Playing the game using the Wii remote and the nunchuk works reasonably well, but not perfectly. Not all your motions will register, even though you did them at the right time. And this is a game that works better with a wireless nunchuk than one that is tethered.
The character animations in this game are better than those in the DS version, so that here, the stars are recognizable.
Bottom line:Passable motion game for the Wii that is fun for fans of the show. Since it has a two-player mode, this version is best for families and friends looking to play together.
