Yes, I’ve added another activity to my workouts, The Black Eyed Peas Experience for the Wii. I really liked their Pump It on Just Dance 3 so I figured I contact Ubisoft and see if I could review this new “experience”.
The Black Eyed Peas Experience can be played by up to 4 players and the more players you have the more points you can get. I’ve danced (and I use that word lightly) the solo ones and the multi-player ones.
To be honest, I’ve got rhythm, but I can’t dance like they do…yet. I’m working on it, but I have a long way to go. That just gives me the motivation to work on it every day! =) The moves go super fast, because they’re authentic moves. It exactly what you’d expect to see in a dance video or similar. That’s exactly what I was looking for. I just didn’t realize how bad I would suck at it.
Now, what I didn’t realize was that it’s rated “T” for teens. The other thing I have to admit is, I don’t listen to BEP music. Not for any specific reason, I just don’t. So, imagine my surprise as I’m working out and HELLO swear words. LOL I was like, “Did I just hear what I think I heard?” Yes indeed. I grabbed the case and sure enough it says, “Mild Suggestive Theme & Strong Lyrics”.
Then there was one song I was dancing to and as I listened to the lyrics I thought to myself, no way can the boys play this game. And that’s fine, they’re 12 and 8, it’s not suggested for them. Look at me being a good parent.
I can say for certain that The Black Eyed Peas Experience will get you working out and having a TON of fun once you master the moves. It’s coming along slowly, but surely. I’m going to keep at it, you know, in case you see me in a club and a BEP song comes on. Then I can show you how it’s done!
What about you? Have you found any “games” for your game console that would be perfect for exercising? If so, I’d love to know about it! I like to mix things up!
