DanceDanceRevolution 

 

DanceDanceRevolution is back and this time on the Playstation 3. Family Friendly Gaming was given a reviewable copy of the PS3 version complete with dance pad. The PS3 version includes compatibility with the Move. In fact this home console game can use the camera and put all kinds of neat visual effects on you while you are dancing. This is a very impressive feature. To me at least. Others were not as impressed.

If you do not have Move, then you can still play DanceDanceRevolution. It just means you get the default background with dancers, and some dance motions that may or may not offend. The special effects in DanceDanceRevolution are fantastic. I loved to see how often and how much changed while I was playing DanceDanceRevolution. Colors, effects, and more shift during a song. Speaking of the music, this makes a nice transition into the next section.

The track list in DanceDanceRevolution is one of the tamest I have seen in a very long time. There are lyrical issues as well as some bad attitudes in certain songs. With all of that said there were few songs in DanceDanceRevolution that I recognized, and fewer that I actually liked. Now musical taste differs between people. There are some thumping club songs in this game, but few are songs I want to listen to very often. The cool thing about DanceDanceRevolution is (on the PS3 version at least) we can download additional tracks. That does cost money though.

DanceDance fans will be very pleased with how many modes there are in DanceDanceRevolution. With the three difficulty settings, and how the game grades the dancers, means this game can keep us active for weeks to come. Four family members can enjoy this game at the same time, provided your family has enough dance pads. The PS3 controller can be used to play DanceDanceRevolution, but that negates the exercise benefit.

Most players will go right into free mode, and then later discover club mode. The most interesting thing about DanceDanceRevolution is the ability to record your dance session and share it. Yes your friends can laugh at how silly you looked while dancing to DanceDanceRevolution. The one gripe I have about DanceDanceRevolution is it can be difficult to pause this game. I had to hit the PS button on a controller to pause when the phone was ringing. When I came back I accidentally quit the game and had to start over though.

Hand eye coordination are one of the lessons from DanceDanceRevolution. As well as feet eye coordination. I like how DanceDanceRevolution gets us up and has us move around. I feel bad for this franchise since there are so many more realistic dancing games now. The dance pad needs to be retired in my opinion and Konami should adopt some different technology. Moving around my arms with the Move controller was nice, but did not capture dancing like the Just Dance games have.
