Wheelchair users can do this!!!!!!,
This review is from: Dancing with the Stars: We Dance! (Video Game)
This game is hilarious fun! The main skill challenge is rhythm matching - pretty much all upper body - though dancing along can help you keep time. Here's my main point: I was surprised and delighted to find that my husband can play this from his wheelchair! We can "dance" together with the 2-player games and he beats my score every time! I just thought people should know that this game is fully playable for those with major disabilities. All you need is the ability to control your arms and to see the screen - even the hearing impaired can play!

Try the Wii Fit balance games using hands instead of feet. Of all our family and friends, Hubbie is the only one to complete all (seven? eight?) levels of the marble-drop game - best anyone else could do was three. He says using his hands is "cheating", but the truth is that able bodied friends are free to compete with him using their hands, too. In other game discs, he beats everyone - by double - at ski slalom, cow racing, ski jumping, baseball.... some people are just good at everything! My point is that with a little imagination many, if not most, of these Wii games can be adapted to a disability, especially if your hands are unimpaired.

Decent review, however, as a hearing impaired person who can hear normally, I don't appreciate "even the hearing impaired" comment. I know you intend to let it be known that the movements are probably on the screen, but that's a kinder way to say it. Thanks for the review and I'm glad to know that mobility handicaps has fun as well.
