I have played DDR a couple times, it was fun fast paced action. This is..hard to follow. If your a master dancer you might get this perfect, love it...but for me someone who doesnt dance alot its hard to follow cause you cant tell when your gonna need to make a movement. Trying to dance like them is hard when you dont know the dance itself, i found myself struggling on easy. The songs are of course random fast paced songs ive never heard. Comparing this to the other Dance game for Kinect called Dance Central by the creators of Rock Band Three, is pitiful because that game is far better.
I know im reviewing this game but the comparisons will help. The other game Dance Central is so easy to pick up and do its amazing, its easy to learn and you actually follow the movements not hit little waves or do little steps. Dont even rent this.

I dont know what everyone is having a problem with in this game. I think the game is fun. It isnt the same as dance central but it sure is fun when you play two players. Its just like DDR but moving. same great music. The music isnt main stream but thats ok because we get games like DDR because of the techno/jpop whatever type of music...not so much for the main stream music.
Game does not have a tutorial like mode but thats ok. Games are for fun jump right in and figure it out. I loveeee the graphics too.
There are no tutorials before each song to teach you how to dance for that particular song. You end up jumping right into a song that you have no idea how to dance to. My kids had a hard time trying to keep up. But have played some of the songs so many times that they know the dances now. We also have Dance Central, the kids have played every song and now seem bored with it cause there is no challenge with it.
The songs themselves aren't that bad. They are techno/trance songs not main stream songs, which my kids like. Its something different. Personally I get tired of hearing the same songs all the time. I'm tired of hearing Lady GaGa.
If you want tutorials to teach you the dance before each song, this is not the game for you, go ahead and buy Dance Central. Want alittle challenge? Go with this game.
