We Dare is an adult-oriented party video game developed by Ubisoft, for the Wii and PlayStation 3 (PS3) gaming systems. It is marketed as a "sexy, quirky, party game" and involves kissing, striptease and spanking. However reviewers in countries where the game is available have noted that the game is in fact a relatively tame party game compilation with only very mild sexual connotations.

Controversy[edit]

The Pan European Game Information (PEGI) and Australian Classification Board (ACB) have drawn criticism[2][3] by implying that the game is suitable for children (despite being marketed to adults): As the boards can only classify the game content, not what the players may be doing, PEGI rated the game a 12, while the ACB gave it an even more lenient PG rating. Months later, the PG rating given in Australia was reviewed but retained.[4]

The game's YouTube trailer has since been blocked from viewing by Ubisoft,[5] and US release plans were shelved.[6] This was followed by a cancellation of the UK release, citing "[negative] public reaction".[7]

The game was released in Europe on March 14, 2011,[8] and in Australia on April 14, 2011.[1]

Music[edit]

This game includes some dancing mini-games with several songs to choose from. All the songs are cover versions. The cover versions were created by "Creative Sphere". The track list includes:
