Not all video games require great skill with a controller. The Nintendo Wii video game console is controlled by a simple remote wand and only two or three buttons at a time. This means people of almost any age can play a Wii game and have fun. If you’re new to Wii gaming, or want something simple to play with friends and family or at a party, try Country Dance Wii. The player needs only the Wii remote for the game to track dance moves.
The dance moves are fairly simple to imitate with the help of an on-screen silhouette, and the player can enjoy many contemporary popular country hits. Many reviews of the game say it is fun to play with kids, and that even the least experienced dancers can follow the choreography. And, the player gets the added benefit of a light workout while having fun!
Some songs included are: Achy Breaky by Billy Ray Cyrus, Redneck Woman by Gretchen Wilson, Why Don’t We Just Dance by Josh Turner, Cowboy Casanova by Carrie Underwood, Water by Brad Paisley, Stuck Like Glue by Sugarland, Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash, and 19 other well-known tunes. There is a second volume to this series that the library has not purchased yet, so if you’re having fun but want a few more songs to dance to, ask the library about requesting it through inter-library loan. And don’t forget you can return video games in the media side of our book drop, located on the outside front of the building, to the western end.
You can get the video game reviewed here and more great titles to watch, read, listen to, or play with at the Port Library at 1718 N. Hersey in Beloit, on the North Campus. Just come down the drive and look for the old limestone and wood sign, close to the ground. This is director Rachel Malay, saying “Thanks for checking us out!”
