Samba De Amigo Wii Review


Originally conceived by Sonic Team, Samba De Amigo first made its appearance in the arcades in 1999, around a year later it made it to the home at a time when SEGA only made games for their own consoles, appearing (with a pair of maracas nonetheless)...

Samba De Amigo may have its problems, although it’s still good and silly (just wait until you hear some of the unlock-able maraca noises) maraca shaking fun. It’s just a shame that Gearbox couldn’t have completely got around the current limited motion...

Samba De Amigo Wii Review


While rhythm isn't one of my strong talents, I have always enjoyed the fun that can be had with playing any rhythm based games. What's even more fun is watching other people make complete fools of themselves and samba de amigo doesn't disappoint.

Fun to play ; A great party game ; Lot of songs and downloadable content is coming soon

Controls are too awkward ; Some songs have been repeated from pervious games ;

Every since Sega starting releasing titles for the Wii there have been cries from fans of the series to bring back Samba de Amigo. The maraca-shaking rhythm title has been a cult hit, beginning life in the arcades, before arriving in limited numbers on...

Sadly those inconsistencies won't keep fans of the original happy, but those looking for a great party game, and something you can enjoy with friends now and then, should certainly consider Samba de Amigo.

A shiny pair of bright red maracas were the first plastic instrument that found a place in my home. They sat proudly on the shelf in the early '00s long before plastic drums and guitars brought the rhythm genre kicking and screaming to the masses years...

Nevertheless, if you are looking for a party game to enjoy with a few friends it is still a great game to pick up and have fun over the weekend. Conversely, if you are the kind of gamer who likes to learn song layouts, practices all the way to Carnegie...

Samba de Amigo


Before fake plastic guitars, before karaoke video games, before the tap tap tap of Ouendan. Before all this, back when the Dreamcast was still a going concern, Samba de Amigo popularised what is now the rhythm action genre.

Overall this is not a game to take too seriously - but in a good way. Go with the carnival atmosphere, get some friends over, add some snacks and drinks and you are well on your way to a great evening in. And it is this ability to bring the arcade...

Samba De Amigo for Wii Review - If you're after a simple, lively party game, give Samba De Amigo a shot, but if you're after a precise, addictive high score rhythm game like Guitar Hero, look elsewhere.

There is perhaps no greater authority on all things Dreamcast than this writer's girlfriend (this bit may not be true); when questioned about her thoughts towards the semi-legendary Samba de Amigo she said “it was the Wii before the Wii...

I see you baby, shakin' that Wii Remote...

Slightly wayward controls annoy, but this is still a package with great song variety and joy.
