As for the karaoke aspect, the microphone has really little different from SingStar; it registers pitch more so than actual words, meaning you can pretty much sing along in pitch without singing the words, and do well.
This is one game that has an okay art style, levels that seem a bit too sparse, and graphics that are pretty much on-par with the other Wii games: nothing too spectacular and very much like a top-of-the-line Gamecube game. There are only a handful of different characters to pick from in Boogie, which like everything else in the game, aren't too remarkable. In short, there's not much to write about Boogie's graphics, because... well, they're pretty middle of the road.
Boogie features 39 different tracks, all of them covers of well-known dance tunes. They are, as expected, not nearly as good as the real deal, but they sound as close as possible. On a side note, if I ever see another karaoke game with “Oops!... I Did It Again” as a song… I’m probably going to go nuts.
The game features multiplayer action and a long list of tunes, but really, there’s no diversity in the game play. You sing or wiggle the Wii remote around to make your character dance until you get tired of the game and either return it for Metroid Prime 3 or just destroy the disk with your bare hands. And when you are billing yourself as a multiplayer party game, that’s far from a good thing.
As it stands, Boogie is a very underwhelming game with boring controls and a karaoke mode that feels like it was ripped from SingStar. Another Boogie game might give EA a chance to iron out the numerous wrinkles this game has. There's too much potential in this kind of game to be squandered like EA did this time around. Let's hope they give it another shot.
Pros: Good song list to choose from. Wii remote controls are simple enough for anyone to play.
Cons: Controls are literally tiring and don’t always respond as you’d like. Not enough diversity in game play. Karaoke mode feels like a rip-off of SingStar. Video editing feature underwhelming.
Boogie is rated E10+ (Everyone 10 and older) by the ESRB for Lyrics and Suggestive Themes.
