IGN Hands-on: Samba de Amigo

Opinion seems split on Samba de Amigo Wii. On one side of things, gamers who experienced the original edition of the game years ago on the Dreamcast are gleeful that the series has returned – Sega's final hardware platform inspired instant nostalgia in its fans, even only a handful of years after its exit from the marketplace. On the other side of things, gamers who never owned or played the Dreamcast seem confused at what all the fuss is about. This is an era where Guitar Hero and Rock Band reign, with their plastic guitars and drumkits making a maraca-focused music design seem outdated and quaint. And while picking up and playing Samba de Amigo on Wii likely won't change the minds of those who find themselves in the Hero/Band modern music camp, it's certainly shaping up to be exactly the kind of rebirth that those in that nostalgic first group are hoping for.
