Now Everybody Can Dance

Get ready to party with your friends and dance together with no controllers in Dance Paradise. Dance Paradise utilizes the camera based motion capture technology built into the Microsoft Kinect system (sold separately). Once Kinect is installed, correctly placed in the room and has mapped the tracked points of an individual player's body, your body in effect becomes your controller. No more buttons, no more dance pads, just your body moving to the the groove and as prompted onscreen. Dance Paradise is also the most advanced Kinect based dance game. It comes with the most music of any Kinect dance game released to date - 40 original hit songs from the hottest artists, like Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Taio Cruz and more, and original video content that accompanies the music tracks. Finally, Dance Paradise is the only Kinect game to give you both the artist videos and true head-to-head multiplayer action to make a real party game, whether you are dancing or just observing.

Gameplay

Dance Paradise is designed to measure players' ability to perform queued dance moves, but unlike other dance games which deal in simple directional movement, detailed accuracy is key here. This is made possible through the real-time motion capture abilities of Kinect. Gameplay in Dance Paradise is based around the game's four color-coded dance lanes. As music tracks and videos run in the background and your Xbox LIVE avatar cheers you on from themed game environments, two-dimensional representations of the dance move you are to mimic slide down the dance lanes towards you in a conveyer belt fashion at the center of the screen. In the few seconds that it takes for these representations to reach the bottom front of the screen they have repeated the move several times. At the end of each lane is a virtual dance pad, which when reached by the two-dimensional figure is your queue to mimic the dance move. A variety of the possible moves slide down all four lanes with players hopping laterally to adjacent dance pads to unleash their versions of them. Moves are rated in real-time and proceed in rhythm with the track. Successful moves fill the player's in-game vitality bar, while unsuccessful attempts subtract from it. Your game ends if the bar is completely drained.

Play Modes

Dance Paradise features multiple game modes in both single player and multiplayer. Single player modes include: Free Play, in which you can queue up the tracks you want and dance away to your heart's content; Training Mode where you can practice the individual moves that you will see in in-game action; and Career Mode - 6 progressive game levels, each of which contain specific challenges that must be met before you can move on to the next. Two player multiplayer modes include: Attack mode, a mode in which after filling their vitality bars players can unleash power-ups that throw off the dance moves of opponents; Versus mode, where players dance off to the same tracks with the winner being the most accurate; and Synchro mode, a cooperative play option where two players must dance in synch to the same track and moves.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's no Dance Central! February 21, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I own Dance Central (and several other Kinect games) as well as purchasing this game from Amazon on its release date. My friends all love playing Dance Central, its only weaknesses being (in my opinion) the track list and lack of additional songs on Xbox Live.

Enter Dance Paradise, a game that's had three months to improve on the quality of games released at Kinect launch. Unfortunately this game fails to deliver due to the poor motion sensing capabilities and overall not-fun game play.

Pros:
- Good music selection.
- The music videos play on the screen which gives the audience a little more entertainment than what's available in Dance Central.
- You can make a playlist of several songs which then play in order without going back to the menu after each song. This is good for parties.

Cons:
- Terrible motion tracking.
- Frequently, an image of a huge Kinect sensor with question marks floats on the middle of the screen while you are playing the game. I think this means it's having trouble detecting the user clearly.
- When you miss a move (or the motion is incorrectly tracked) the game boos at you.
- The songs do not play all the way thru, usually they stop after the bridge.
- Load times between songs are very long.
- Part of the gameplay has you moving physically from one side of the sensor area to the other, which is relatively pointless and only serves to illicit more boos from the virtual audience. Dance Central has this better.

Summary:
If you are desperate for some more songs to Kinect dance to then this game may help. Otherwise steer clear of this game and wait for the next generation of Dance Central (or maybe some decent DLC??).

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Ouch! This game is horrbile! The only thing it has going for it is song selection. Even with that it won't play the full song and I think some are actually shorter than those on Dance Central. Also I noticed that there is a bug that won't let us play the song BulletProof. If we select that song it just returns us back to the song selection screen after sitting through it's unbearable load times (Installed on the console BTW).

Also missing is a way to see what Kinect sees. Dance Central implemented this so well. In Dance Central if you aren't in the game play area you can see on screen where you are located. Also it can show you if someone else has taken the controls from you. Dance Paradise just brings up a Kincet Sensor picture with questions marks surrounding a character and then that leaves you with a WTF look on your face while trying to move to where the Kinect can see you correctly. That kills the game IMO because it's the biggest annoyance with the game.

The dancing can work if you are able to be seen by Kinect correctly. It's a little weird going from Dance Central to this style of dancing though. It makes it look like they were planning to have this support 4 players but then changed their minds or something. Also the colors of each track are different, Red, Yellow, Blue and Green. 4 Players in mind? Probably. You will see 4 tracks with humanoid figures doing the moves you should mirror falling to the bottom of the screen. Player one has the first 2 tracks and it jumps tracks ever so often. When you think you have the hang though the song cuts off after like the first verse then hook. Sucks!

Don't buy this game! You will regret it!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great soundtrack! March 26, 2011
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Dance Paradise - The good: 1) The best soundtrack of all current dance games, 2) Simultaneous 2-player multiplayer, 3) Ability to create custom playlists, 4) Ability to watch full-length music videos

Dance Paradise - The not so good: 1) Lack of sufficient tutorial mode, 2) Dance consists of strings of dance moves rather than a single choreographed routine, 3) Music is so good that the shortened dance version begs to be longer, 4) Will occasionally lose track of player (but rare)

Dance Paradise is another dance game that is available for the Kinect Sensor. It plays like Guitar Hero or Rock Band but instead of hitting a note on 1 of 4 lanes, you do dance moves on the lane. It has a "dance power" that behaves like the "star power" of Guitar Hero.

The user interface controls quite well. It utilizes Kinect ID well. Menu navigation is quite easy and the control is very good. If you don't like navigating the user interface with your hand, you can use a standard 360 game controller. There is a slightly frustrating element to scrolling through the songs though. If you like to flip through the songs slowly so you can see what the song is, you can hold your hand over the arrow button. However, it'll advance slowly for only 2 songs. If you hold over the button for more than 2 songs, it'll start to scroll really fast which may cause you to skip pass the song you want. So if you know the song you want is a few songs away but not far away, what basically happens is that you have to hold over the button for 2 songs, then lift your hand off the button and then put it back on the button to scroll for 2 more songs and then lift off. This can become very annoying. Again, once you know where all the songs are located in the list, scrolling fast is advantageous.
