Excellent

A bit of a learning curve, but a riot.

Dance Central came to the Kinect booked as a preteen christmas gift, and has instead becoming the Kinect's shinning jewel.

On its most basic level, the body tracking for Dance Central is near perfect. It is forgiving on some of the most complicated dance moves, but will still force you to do something at least mildly similar to what is displayed on screen by tracking your arms and legs.

The song selection is fits the game wonderfully, and everyone will find at least one track they'll get off the couch for.

Perhaps its only real draw back is how complicated it can be even on its lowest level. A walk through of the song before you play is almost a requirement to hit the moves with any regularity. This is fine for solo play, but could really kill the party atmosphere it's seems so clearly ready for.

All in all, it's a winner. If you have a kinect it is the only current must own.

I love kinect its better than wii and that cheap version of the wii the ps3 move.But just like wii it has lame games.This is thus far the only game that actually amazing to play for kinect.The moves arent stupid like other games, they actually match the songs.Only down sides are..2 player mode sucks and it needs way better songs for download..if you have kinect and dont have this game then you are missing out !

My main reason for buying my Kinect was for Dance Central. Boy, was I pleased. Dance Central is the perfect game for the whole family. I'm more of an RPG/action gamer, but I have to admit that I can not get enough of this game. My wife loves it and she hates videogames. Even my 6 year old son loves the game. (In the middle of each song is a 10-15 second 'freestyle' session where you can dance and then watch a video of yourself dancing. My son can't wait for the freestyle session so he can jump around the living room, than watch himself. I use that time to catch my breath and rest.)
The game could also be advertised as an exercise game (you will break a sweat!) The Kinect sensor follows your moves exactly and the on-screen instuctions are easy to follow. The play list is a nice mix of old and new school songs. Add to that the fact that you can download new songs from the Xbox marketplace and you'll be having fun dancing for a long time.
