Alvin and The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked Video Game Review

I grew up loving Alvin and the Chipmunks and now I enjoy them with my children, ages 8 and 12.  Everyone’s favorite Chipmunks and sassy Chipettes are back with more great tunes and fun! Alvin and The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked is in theaters everywhere and the Chipmunks are on an all new adventure that you won’t want to miss out on.

Majesco Entertainment’s latest videogame, Alvin and The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked is now available on Kinect for Xbox 360, Wii and Nintendo DS.  It is rated E10+ but my 8 year old daughter loves it and I have no concerns about her playing it.   

Alvin and The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked is the perfect game (and gift) for everyone, young and old!

 During the cold winter months it's often difficult to get in outdoor activities and exercise.  I love the fact that Alvin and The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked gets my children up and moving no matter what the weather is outside.  Playing provides them hours of fun and exercise at the same time!


I have as much fun playing Alvin and The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked (and watching my children play) as the kiddos have playing it.  It offers hours of gameplay and 30 popular Chipmunk tunes to keep you singing, dancing, laughing and entertained for hours, days and possibly even months.

Get up and shake your groove thing with Alvin and the Chipmunks!
