First of all, let me just say that Dance Masters is NOT as bad as everyone is making it out to be.
The first good thing I can think of is the character design and graphics. The main character is pretty and the outfits are cute. You can tell the designers put a lot of effort into the graphics, so kudos to them. I also really liked the fact that you can save and replay your performances. It's really neat to see yourself onscreen. The scoring can be confusing at times, but once you learn how to read the dance analysis it's easy to figure out which part of the routine needs improvement. The multiplayer feature is fun, and two people can dance at the same time, one of the things Dance Central lacks. So, Dance Masters has many good points that should be mentioned.
Dance Masters does need some work before it can beat Dance Central, though. Specifically, the controls could be must better. It is confusing to see the thing you want to select on the left hand side, but have to move your hand to the right to select it. There are many tracks on Dance Masters, but I have only found a few songs that I like. But, really, the game was made by the same company as Dance Dance Revolution, so what did you expect? Lastly, the Xbox Live feature was disappointing. I couldn't find any matches, which renders it practically useless.
Overall, Dance Masters is a fun game once you get past the tricky controls and strange music, not to mention figure out a routine. However, once you do make a high score on a challenging dance, it is a very satisfying feeling. So, if you enjoy trying out new things, including music and dance moves, or if you're an up-and-coming dancer looking for a challenge, this is the game for you. If you want manufactured pop music with easy routines to improve your self esteem, go with Dance Central.

I thought this game would be runner up next to dance central but its far from it. I like the fact that it places you in the game screen so it feels like your there! untill you notice your floating in mid air.and the other dancers are walking thru you...not the mention the horrible songs ...
