The new Just Dance 2 Video Game for Wii was released in October 2010. This is the follow up to the popular “Just Dance” game which was released last year. What makes this game unique compared to other dance games is that this game teaches real dance moves. Some of the other “dance” type games are really all about stepping on a certain square on a mat at the right time in the music. Just Dance 2 breaks away from that and uses real dance moves.
There are more than 40 songs on the track list that spans recent hits from artists such as Rihanna and old school classics from The Jackson Five.
This game is rated for everyone 10 years old and up and great for individual play or multi-player mode.

It’s time for the 2010 winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada. If you want to really feel like you are participating in the games but don’t happen to live near snow or simply don’t want to have to leave the comfort of you couch, then perhaps a Winter Olympic themed video game is the perfect choice for you!
There are 2 new video games available and designed for the 2010 winter olympics. One game rates very well by customers on amazon, but the other has rated poorly.
The top pick based on amazon customer reviews is Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games which is available on Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS(i). This popular and highly rated game was just released in October 2009 in anticipation of the 2010 Winter Games.
Players can compete in real Winter Olympic Events and over-the-top Dream Events alone or with up to 4 players in multiplayer mode.
For the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 is the Vancouver 2010 – The Official Video Game of the Olympic Winter Games. This game is not getting as many positive ratings from amazon customers as the Mario and Sonic game, but may still fill your need for Winter Olmpic gaming on PS3 or Xbox 360.
