A remake of the original version for the Dreamcast, this version features the same characters including the main character, Amigo, along with many of SEGA's past.

This version still features 40 of the original songs along with newer songs and the ability to download more through the Wii's internet connection. There are many game modes to choose from such as Quick Play, Classic, Battle, Survival, Hustle along with the classic modes Career, Single-Player, Multi-player.

The controls consist of using the Wii-remote and Nunchuk instead of the classic maracas that the original version featured. To complete the stages the player must shake the controls at a certain time when they are prompted on the screen. It features multiplayer with many modes including Love Love mode where two players must sync up their movements in order to get the maximum amount of points. Along with online capabilities where players can not only download songs but see their progress on online leaderboards.

Poor controls ruin this rhythm game.

The Good
The art style, music and sounds are all excellent. The basic mechanic of the game works very well with the Wii controllers to make you really feel like you are shaking maracas. It's fun and simple to grasp how to play.

The Bad
The control response is horrible. Being a rhythm game, timing is everything. However, the Wiimotes just are not accurate enough to pick up your shakes. At times you will curse the game for not registering hits and at other times you will curse the game for registering hits you didn't make.

The Bottom Line
This is a fairly fun maraca shaking rhythm game with excellent Latin flavored musical arrangements. Just don't try to take it too seriously because the inaccurate control will make it well nigh impossible to advance very far in the game.
