Dance Central Spotlight
Dance Central has made it to the Xbox One. Older members of the
family have enjoyed this dancing game on the Xbox 360 thanks to the
Kinect sensor. In order to play Dance Central Spotlight on the Xbox One
you will need the Kinect Sensor 2.0. If you purchased an Xbox One
without it, then this game is about worthless.
Dance Central Spotlight is a downloadable only video game, and it clocks in at 1.49 gigs. So make sure you have enough bandwidth for the month to be able to download such a large file. Remember ISPs will charge you for going over your Internet usage limit.
The pricing plan with Dance Central Spotlight is going to anger some of our readers as well. There are ten songs that come with the $9.99 purchase. After that each song is $1.99. If you purchase all of the songs you will be paying a hefty amount. The positive side is you can pick and choose the songs you want. You can not bring in songs from your iPod and dance to them in Dance Central Spotlight.
Dance Central Spotlight was really glitchy at first. Family Friendly Gaming was warned of some of the glitches. Only have one player use the game at first to go through the tutorial. Dance Central Spotlight crashed multiple times when a second player came over before the tutorial was completed.
The ESRB is groping around in the dark with the descriptors on Dance Central Spotlight. They missed the enticement to lust issues, as well as lack of clothing in some of the characters. Gamers have gotten used to the inconsistent ratings from the ESRB.
Dance Central Spotlight is fun as an exercise experience. The biggest downside is the lyrics that many will consider offensive. With so many better songs that contain lyrics safe for families - why didn't Harmonix use them instead? Gamers can debate that one message boards for years to come.
The worst part of Dance Central Spotlight is it feels rushed and released too soon. Not just the pricing plan, or the crashes, but also the lack of overall content. There are few dance routines. Obviously the less content in download only video games applies here.
