Dance Central 3




Dance Central 3 


The dancing genre has been around since Dance Dance Revolution. In recent years franchises like Just Dance have come to dominate the entire market. If we look at just the Xbox 360 Kinect games then the best selling is the Dance Central. Or so the front case of Dance Central 3 tells us. I verified it with a little research. Just Dance dominates when we talk all systems, and Dance Central wins on the Xbox 360 Kinect alone.

Dance Central 3 is a pure dancing game for the older members of the family. Notice the 'T' for Teen ESRB rating. There are plenty of adult concepts in this game. Certain gyrations most parents will not want their kids to participate in. Keeping youth innocent until they have to learn certain things is the sign of a responsible parent.

When it comes to presentation Dance Central 3 is top notch. The game will have light lines that follow the players arms as they are matching the on screen dancers. Keep it up, and there will be an on screen highlight as if you were on stage or at a dance club. The more flawless the player is the more visual special effects there are.

A fair share of the dancers in Dance Central 3 are dressing provocatively. This is an area I hope the franchise improves in the future. I understand certain dance moves are going to be sexual. Add that with their attire and plenty of families will pass on this home console game. One look at the front cover should alert parents to this facet of Dance Central 3.

Dance Central 3 includes over forty different songs from a variety of eras. Owners of Dance Central and Dance Central 2 can import their songs into Dance Central 3. Additional songs can be purchased in the future. With multiple difficulty settings, unlockable content, and profile settings - expect to be playing for weeks.

One thing I found very interesting about Dance Central 3 is the story mode. We can now time travel to save the dance floors. Yeah I know it does sound a little corny. But it gives the player something to do besides just dancing with your friend. It adds to the replay value of this Kinect title.

I love how long Dance Central 3 keeps the moves going. I could not always pick up the motions of the dancers. Dance Central 3 keeps them going long enough for my brain to catch up. I have played other dance games that shift this much faster. So by the time I figured something out, it was changing. That is not the case with Dance Central 3.

Parents will want to take a close look at the lyrics in Dance Central 3. There are song in here that I personally enjoy, and songs I can not stand. Each song is relaying  its own message and lesson. Being aware of this is important in comprehending where some of our attitudes, moods, and opinions come from.

Dance Central 3 is pure exercise. I found myself sweating profusely after an hour of play. I was wreaking of something and it was not awesomeness. When I started playing Dance Central 3 I would go crazy in the open dance sections. Later on I used it as an opportunity to catch my breath. And no I will not share any of that one Facebook.
