5.0 out of 5 stars Follow the Directions! December 29, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have read some of the reviews, and I agree with some, but overall this is a great addition to the game. The feeling is authentic and it gives your arms a good workout. Some mentioned the poses and such not registering. That is probably because the person is not posing correctly. The Wii is very picky about the position of the pose/remotes; for example, when you move both arms left or right to do that side pose, you must twist your wrists, which will twist the remotes to face you, as well. You cannot just point left or right (leaving the remotes facing up). It took me a few times to realize that, but it DID in fact show this in the instructional portion of the game, which everyone should pay attention to. That helped me clear those poses. As for having to take the Wiimote out to change songs/mode/etc., you can simply use the up/down/left/right (+ button) to select that stuff. Ole!

1.0 out of 5 stars poor quality and unusable October 6, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I owned these Maracas controllers for 30 minutes before I started researching how to get a refund.

They slide on the Wiimote and nunchuck with a fairly loose fit, so the controllers sort of slip around inside the Maracas, with the Nunchuck constantly in danger of slipping out.. There are covers over the end that look like they should allow signal from the Wiimote through, but it just barely works, meaning you will need to pop the Wiimote in and out of the Maraca in order to navigate the on-screen menus. While using the Maracas, about a quarter of the shakes weren't registered, and I wasn't able to complete a single pose. These Maraca shaped controller covers detract from the gaming experience and make Samba de Amigo virtually unplayable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Throw directly in the trash December 28, 2008
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
The maracas look the part and sound good, but when you try to play Samba De Amigo with them you instantly realize how poorly designed they are. The game becomes an irritating disaster with the Samba Samba maracas and my wife and I pulled out hair out in frustration before throwing them in the trash after half an hour of trying to play with them.

The game plays very nicely without these maracas, it's unfortunate that the maracas are so bad and may turn players off the game if you only try to play it using the maracas.

1.0 out of 5 stars Glad I tried Samba without maracas first May 5, 2009
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I love Samba, but the maracas made it unplayable. Like some of the other reviewers, I found that the maracas interfered with the controller signals to the point where it hurt gameplay significantly. I got through two games with them, trying to get them to work, then packed them back up for return.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quit your whining! Maracas are great. March 30, 2009
By Señora
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Wii Maracas Quit whining. The Wii maracas are great! Yes they are a little big and no you can't scroll down the screen as easily, but all you have to do is use the arrow keys instead to navigate to the games and music that you want. They are great for helping you hear & time the maraca sound with the beat. I easily got many more points when using them.

My 9 year old has trouble holding them b/c of their size, but people 12 and older ought to be fine with some practice and patience. Please, people, if things don't come easy, we have to throw a fit and get rid of something?!!! Grow up, and have some fun. Life without challenges is boring and creates whiners! These are a great buy, and I'm going to buy a 2nd pair soon.

1.0 out of 5 stars huge! January 14, 2009
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
These were just a silly purchase to go with the samba de amigo game for xmas. Even keeping that in mind, I wouldn't waste my money on them again. They are huge and the wii remote doesn't work when it's in the maraca. You have to take the remote out after each song to navigate the menus.

4.0 out of 5 stars Samba De Amigo is FUN....maracas are a bit cumbersome
I would definitely buy the game but the maracas are huge and make accuracy and timing more difficult. I would stick with the controllers only.
