extended movie, plus exclusive bonus features:
• New Cast Profiles

We were able to review the The 2-disc Extended Edition DVD and thought it was quite a great package. It comes with it’s own Digital copy that you can transfer to your computer and then upload to a portable device such as an ipod. This is a nice family safe movie in the same tradition as the first 2, although we thought the music wasn’t quite as catchy as the first High School Musical movie. We like how although this movie is about teens it stays safe with no swearing or violence and the romances do not progress to anything more than hand-holding and a sweet kiss. We suggest checking out the 2-disc Extended version for the bonus features which is set up like a high school yearbook. The Blu-ray disc has additional features that we have not reviewed, but also might be worth checking out if you have a Blu-ray player.
PopStar Guitar Out Now!
PopStar Guitar, the new rhythm guitar game from XS Games has been released today for the Wii and PS2. PopStar Guitar features original mastered tracks from mega pop artists Miley Cyrus, Maroon 5, Rihanna, Jonas Brothers, Fall Out Boy, Paramore, Simple Plan, 3 Doors Down and Blink 182.
In PopStar Guitar, players take on the role of lead guitarist who forms a garage band that tours around the world eventually advancing to the main stage for a once in a lifetime performance at the “Battle of the Bands” competition. PopStar Guitar features 12 playable and customizable characters, 25 visually cool venues and more than 50 pop songs to jam to. An all-new PopStar Guitar video with unique customization features is now available for download at: http://bhimpact.gamespress.com/product_page.asp?i=885.
The Wii version of PopStar Guitar features two AirG peripherals for $59.99 and has multiplayer capabilities straight out of the box. For PlayStation®2 system players, PopStar Guitar supports officially licensed PlayStation®2 system non-USB guitar peripherals and will retail for $29.99. PopStar Guitar is developed by Broadsword Interactive and is rated “T” by the ESRB.
My family and I tried playing this game and the AirG peripherals were a little difficult to get used to especially if you’re used to playing games like Guitar Hero or Rock Band. Once we figured out how to strum the nunchuck we were able to start off touring in small venues and work are way up to larger one’s. This game is best for teens who like this kind of music because it starts you off with just a few tunes which you have to master before unlocking more.
