Reviews of the game range from mixed to negative, as both GameRankings and Metacritic gave it a score of 65% and 60/100 for the Wii version,[4][8] 65% and 65/100 for the PlayStation 2 version,[5][9] 46.67% and 55/100 for the Xbox 360 version,[6][10] and 50% and 48/100 for the PC version.[7][11] Variety gave the Wii version a mixed review and said, "Target kiddie audience will enjoy mixing-and-matching characters in ways never seen onscreen, as well as creating their own East High Wildcat, but will quickly get frustrated with the game's core "dancing" mechanic that's really just flailing with the Wii's wireless controller."[12]
