Samba de Amigo |


Hey, rockers, ready to put down those plastic guitars and prove that you’ve really got rhythm? Try the cult Dreamcast game Samba de Amigo, in which a psychotically smiling monkey shimmies in exotic environments while you shake your controllers (and booty, presumably) to match the Latin beats. Samba is now getting a Wii-lift, with cordless Wiimotes replacing the original maraca controllers and a bevy of new tunes helping you get your mambo on. As a challenging rhythm game, Samba on the Wii is sadly hindered by its spotty motion controls. But pop it in after a round of tequila at your next party and you’re sure to be yelling for mas maracas. B+
