If you play this, then you wouldn't wannabe their lover.

There isn't much of a plot in Spice World. All you need to know is that you're supposed to prepare the girls for a TV concert but if they don't have a mix and any dance moves, their concert will be anything but successful. This is where you come in. It's up to you to make sure that the girls know how to dance, but most important, they need a song to dance to.
At the beginning of the game, you pick one of the girls to represent you before you'll head over to the mixing room to get working on your new song. The first thing you need to do here is to choose one of five different Spice Girls songs then you start mixing the song using 9 different sound samples. For something like this you'd expect the sound samples to be good, but in this case they suffer from two things that shouldn't really have been problems. First of all, you're not given enough samples to make a half-way decent mix and there are also fatal sound gaps between each sample, making the mix sound worse then a sandpapered CD.
When you're done with your mix you'll go to the dancing practice room were you take dance lessons by an Afro-American guy who looks a bit like Undercover Brother. All you do in this part is pressing the button that appears on the screen until you're done. After this there's another dancing part which is slightly different. Here you have to record each Spice Girl's dancing moves by pressing a combination of buttons to perform a kind of dance move. When that's done you do the same with the rest of the girls or you can just record the dance of the previous girl and then copy the same routine over to the others.
Finally, there's the TV Studio. Your main task here is to control the camera angles while the girls dance and sing. If it wasn't bad enough that you have no idea which button to press for which camera angle, you are forced to once again listen to your horrific mix, which for some reason is the only music you'll ever get to listen to while you play.
The only thing that's worse then the fact that you've got a horribly put-together song stuck in your head for several hours is that the game is agonizingly short if you're not too finicky with your mix, dance moves and your camera work. Even if you make a horrible mix, dance worse then Mr Bean or handle the camera like your shooting during an earthquake there's still nothing preventing you from moving on. The challenge in this game is as high as the replay value. Play for 10 minutes, and you're done. Play through the game once, and you're done. There's no chance of you ever putting the game back into your Playstation ever again. You've wasted 10 minutes of your precious time already, so why would you waste any more of your time?
What we have here is game that's probably the worst celebrity game since the Make my Video series on Sega CD. If you like Spice Girls, but only have their CDs, then stick to owning the CDs.
