Perfect

The Best One Yet!

The Black Eyed Peas : The Experience, is a great contender of the Kinect Dance Craze. This game certainly shines, and is well put together, The graphics are tight, and the dancer's movements, are right on. If you are not doing the move correctly, there is a practice mode, and your avatar will not do the dance move correct. The menu system is a breeze, and you can use both hands to navigate unlike other games. The music, both and old and new from the Black Eyed Peas is here, even one song before Fergie joined. There is also songs that were ever a single and still made it such as Disco Club and The Situation. Up to 2 dancers, and 2 singers can play, and the people who made "lips", did the karaoke parts of the game! This is a well made game, and you can tell the budget put into it. Even if you do not like the black eyed peas, the game works, and works well! TRY IT!

Very Good

A fans review

Starting off, I've been a dancer on and off through a lot of my life. Theater arts, Ballroom Dance Performance Team in college, Choreographer and dancer in college, and on at least one semi-pro dance troupe post-college. I've been doing it a while, and I like to think I'm not half bad at the low end.
That said, I tend to be a fan of the dancing games, from early DDR up to now.

One of the reasons I simply bought the game instead of rent it, was I saw early reviews showing that
1) I've been a fan of BEP for a while, long before Fergie joined.
2) Because of this, I knew I would like 90% or more of the music. Something I can NOT say about many of the other kinect dance games. I'm actually NOT a fan of a lot of American pop music and in MY opinion, they made some horrible choices. Especially in Dance Central 2.
3) Early reviews had mentioned a good-to-very-good move-recognition for the game. Rather necessary for kinect.

Overall, I love the game. The group-personalized experience, the tidbits, the bit-by-bit modifications you can unlock and add for each character, section of char, backgrounds, upgrades to those, and so on. I also loved how they mixed in a karaoke bit as well. I was always a fan of BEP as stated before, and I am a fan of the game.

That said, the main 'glaring' problem that is what really knocked 2 points off a 'perfect' score, is that the avatar tends to either always do the 'right' moves, and you only get 'almosts', or looks like a broken doll. The lack of 'true' player-representation in the game makes it highly aggravating when you are sure you have the right moves, but you get poor scores.
The only other two minor 'beefs' are that it would be nice to freely swap avatars per account/profile, and that the game is a bit too quick to 'select' something when you're trying to browse and just check difficulty.

All in all, if you like their music at all, and like to dance, then this is a must-have. It's also a ~HECK~ of a work-out even at l

I sort of like this game. It had some cool songs but then it had some slow and robotic move during some songs that got annoying and dull. I simply danced to the songs I enjoyed and said screw the slow songs. Overall, if your a fan to them, you will like this game. I certainly glad i got this game. I originally was planning to give it an 8 but the scrolling thing to select the songs was so dam annoying! I had to deduct one point, that's how annoying it was >_< Although it isn't annoying enough to make you give it a 2 like some reviewer did.
