Not too many software packages will have you jumping and spinning, but that's what Barbie Gotta Groove is all about. Work with Barbie and her gal-pals Tori, Nichelle, Ana, and Chelsie (plus set designer Lara) to make cool clothes, rockin' stages, and swinging dance routines, then put them all together for the big show. Get creative on the dance floor with hip-hop, salsa, and other styles--once you've got the virtual girls going, you can try the moves out yourself!
The interface is supereasy--for the most part, pointing and clicking is all that you need to do. The CD works in stereos, too, so even if you're not around a computer you can practice your jams. Use the Barbie Digital Camera (not included) to put yourself in the action--make CD covers or your own personality page! You can save your favorite outfits and dance pieces and watch them again and again, plus you can challenge yourself by watching a dance and then playing back the moves in just the right order. If you want, you can even compete with your friends to see who's got the right moves.
Just imagine--all the lights, colors, and glamour of show business without the stress and heartbreak. Barbie and all her Generation Girl friends need a little direction--slide into your choreographer's chair and get busy!--Rob Lightner
