Pull on your cowboy boots and grab some friends – it’s time to dance! Joining the video game dance craze is Country Dance, a new game from GameMill Entertainment made with country fans in mind. Country Dance features songs from more than 25 of country’s biggest artists, including Carrie Underwood, Sugarland, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, and Darius Rucker as well as favorite tunes from the ’90s like “Achy Breaky Heart,” “Watermelon Crawl” and “Boot Scootin’ Boogie.” Eighteen of the artists featured in the game have won a CMA Award. If you purchase the game at Walmart, you’ll also get a bonus track, Alan Jackson’s “Good Time.”
Like other dance video games on the market, Country Dance puts players through their paces as they mimic the avatar’s on-screen dance moves. The player’s moves are recorded by the Wii’s censor, which determines scoring. Dances range from a 1-star to a 3-star difficulty level, with 3 stars being the hardest. “Chicken Fried,” for instance, is perfect for the beginner, but “Cowboy Casanova” and “Good Time” are not for the faint of heart. There isn’t much line dancing going on either, but fully choreographed routines. Up to four people can play at a time.
Country Dance will hit store shelves March 29. Sound like a game you might pick up?
