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.
When I first played Dance Masters, I was disappointed in it. I wasn't sure how to play(I finally found the tutorial, which explains the basics), and I thought it was annoying to just be thrown into a song. I played it on easy to see how it went, and was highly disappointed. But, I didn't give up, and decided to try it on expert. I figured I could play DDR on Expert, Let's see how Expert plays out. On easy, It's really doesn't require much, wait for the pose marker, and match it. On Intermediate, It's adds a few more things to try, making you match steps, hand gestures, and poses, while expert sometimes makes you do many of them at once.
In the comparisons to Dance Central, The biggest thing I found was the mainstream artists draw the DC crowd. In Dance Masters, Many of the Parapara routines are Eurobeat songs, and Almost all the other songs I played in a DDR game as some point in time.
Fans of DDR will enjoy the familiar songs with new routines, but the lack of any true song DLC right now is disappointing.
I've also seen and heard many complaints that the motions aren't tracked well, but I've never had a problem having my moves tracked.
Having played through the Dance Dance Revolution I was excited to hear that the developers were releasing a new game for the Kinect.
The game doesnt disappoint, it may not be a precise as Dance Central but thats what makes this game stand out. Dance Central at times is too accurate at times and requires more time devoted to it. DanceMasters a fun jump in game anyone can play and at the same time provides more then a deep enough challenge for gamers who are looking for a new game to master.
