I didn't read the reviews before I got this game for my 12 year old daughter. She loves all the dance wii games. We do not have the pad and she came in the kitchen not 5 minutes of playing this and said it was horrible. She said all she could do it use the hand controls to follow the arrows. I wished we had a pad to see how good it was then, but we don't. And no where do I see you NEEDED a pad to use this game. Would have been helpful, now we just wasted a few days on a game till we get the next one in the mail. Waste of time :(
You have to have the um what's it called the mat to play. You can play with the wii remote and what not but it's no fun at all if you dont have it. I was very disappointed. I was really excited to get this but than it was like wth?! Very disappointed would not reccomend this game because of that.
This game is tons of fun. It is a great way to bring the family together. There are songs many people know and can sing a long to. This game gets many laughs. The more mats you have the more fun it is. They have many levels for first timers to people who have grown up playing the game. It is a great game for all ages.
