|High School Musical 2: Work This Out!|
April 22, 2008
High School Musical 2: Work This Out! is a video game for the Nintendo DS, based on the popular 2007 television movie High School Musical 2. It is a musical adventure game that allows the player to play as Sharpay, Troy, Gabriella, Ryan, Chad and Taylor in storylines that extend beyond the High School Musical 2 movie sequel. The game features all 10 songs from High School Musical 2.
The game is much different yet identical to High School Musical: Makin' the Cut! where players can play any of the six main cast of High School Musical 2 and walk around Lava Springs, something players were unable to do in the previous Nintendo DS game.
Some songs are sung by cover artists, and not the original artists, while others are sang by the original artists.
Songs have to be unlocked to progress through the levels and can choose which one to play through the jukebox, which will then permanently be on until the player changes the song. You can start off with either, "You Are the Music in Me" or "You Are the Music in Me (Sharpay Version)".
The songs can be heard even if the Nintendo DS is closed.
- "What Time Is It?"
- "Work This Out"
- "You Are the Music in Me"
- "I Don't Dance"
- "You Are the Music in Me (Sharpay Version)"
- "Gotta Go My Own Way"
- "Bet on It"
- "All for One"
Reception of the game was negative, as GameRankings have it a score of 36.50% and Metacritic gave it a score of 38 out of 100.
