For all you musical fans out there, in a couple of months time you'll get the chance to sing and dance your way through Grease's plot as either Danny or Sandy. If this is starting to sound appealing then don't hang around until release date, head over to Cool Shop UK's website where you can pre-order the game for £19.78, which'll save you just over £5 on the next best pre-order price of £24.91 coming in from Asda.
Whereas you're limited to picking between controlling Danny or Sandy in the single player, multiplayer'll let you choose from the rest of the cast list depending on whether you prefer The T-Birds or The Pink Ladies, and it'll also let you battle things out between friends as you can pit two teams of four against one another.
Instead of going down the route of trying to painstakingly recreate the actors' looks, the developers have decided to go for a cartoon approach, which in my opinion is a much better option for the Wii.
The controls seem to combine a lot of the Wii's peripherals, so you can expect to swing the Wii mote around, grab your USB microphone, and even hook up your Wii balance board to gyrate your hips to the music.
There are a whole load of mini-games for you to take part in including; high school sports like wrestling, track events, and baseball; racing down Thunder road; and of course dancing. Also, if you've got any additional players sitting around then they can pick up the microphone and earn points by singing the songs signature tracks whilst you're focusing on the mini-game in hand.
This looks like a game that's got the potential to be great fun if it can capture the spirit of the movie, so you should move like "Greased Lightnin'" to pre-order your copy.
