Players can choose to dance to multiple routines as their favorite ‘Munk (Alvin, Simon, and Theodore) or Chipette (Brittany, Eleanor, and Jeanette), while earning more points if they can dance on the beat.  In addition, players who fill their “Munk Power” meter are then able to perform ultra-cool dance moves that electrify the crowd.

The game is based on the forthcoming Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked movie in theaters December 16th, which finds the trio vacationing aboard a luxury cruise liner until they become ‘chipwrecked’ on a remote island. The Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked video game continues the story with an around-the-world journey that has the ‘Munks visiting six tropical locations inspired by the movie. While dancing as the playable Chipmunks or The Chipettes, players perform more than 50 different dance moves to excite the crowd while rocking out to 30 of the greatest Chipmunk tunes that all generations can enjoy together.

ace and friends thoughts

My kids have been huge fans of the Alvin and the Chipmunk movie series. So when they saw a commercial for newest movie in the series, Alvin and the Chipmunk: Chipwrecked, they wanted to go to the theater and see it immediately. Ahhh, the power of advertising! Although secretly, I have to say that I am as excited as them to see it. Since the movie isn't quite out yet, we have Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked for the Wii to help entertain us in the meantime!

Player have the option of choosing which character they would like to be from any of the Chipmunks or Chipettes. They can then perform from fifty different dance moves by following the the moves on the screen. You score more points the closer you are to the move and beats you see and hear. A "Munk Power" meter increases your score when it's filled. Based upon your superb dancing skills, you can earn different types of trophies to put in display.

There is an option to play the game alone or with more than one player. There is also the ability to battle it out in the Co-Op mode and each character can be customized in a selection of super cute attire. 
Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked is fun and entertaining for the whole family. Along with kids, we have been thoroughly enjoying ourselves, singing and dancing along with our favorite Chipmunks and Chippettes. It's a great interactive game and I know that it will get a lot of use this winter season! This would make a fantastic stocking stuffer for that gamer in your life! Now... c'mon... go and get your Chipmunk groove on....
