Samba Is More Siesta Than Fiesta

This packed-to-the-brim remake of the Dreamcast classic handles many features admirably, from crisp and bright graphics to the presence of just about any toe-tapping Latin-party dance tune you could request. The big question is how the Wii remote controls work in replacement of the old maracas. Sadly, many enthusiasts will be frustrated. While the functionality is okay, the faster movements required on the higher difficulties frequently don't register as you switch between notes – resulting in failures you don't deserve. It cripples what is otherwise a fun return to maraca-shaking goodness. Other music games have stepped light years beyond what's going on in the gameplay here, but the pure insanity on screen and variety of modes should be enough to make even jaded video game rockers crack a smile.
