I was VERY wrong.
I added my own batteries and found that this game has nine songs. NINE SONGS! The graphics have also been tuned down, and now they look like something that was released in the late 1980s, not 2001. I found the steps - even in the Maniac difficulty, on the hardest songs - to be rediculously easy. Once you start a song, there is no way to exit except to reset the whole system. The pad has a SLIPPERY surface! This especially amazes me, because Konami generally has such high quality pads. And then, after playing 3 times (less than 5 minutes), the sound completely died!!! While playing with the volume controls on my TV, I discovered that even brief playtime of this game cuts the sound down to 1% of its intended volume.
With only 9 songs, a poor pad, terrible backgrounds, no difficulty, and so many MAJOR technical bugs, this should be avoided at all costs!!!
The game is clearly designed for younger children and DDR newbies. It is very simple to set up: insert 4 AA batteries into the pad and plug the corresponding cables in your TV. Set your TV to its specific channel and voila - your game is ready.
The onscreen graphics are reminescent of my old 8-bit NES system from the mid-80s. The movements from familar Disney characters such as Mickey, Donald and Chip 'n Dale are jerky, the color palette is minimal and the text is pixelated. At times, the limited color palette makes it difficult to see the on-screen step pattern as there is a very limited contrast.
The music can best be described as midi quality, which means vocals-free. There are 9 various songs mirroring the arcade version - jpop-style electronic mixes of familar Disney songs such as Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah, Mickey Mouse March and Macho Duck. Due to the low quality of the music it is sometimes difficult to hear the beat of a particular song, such as Macho Duck, thus making the step patterns difficult to follow.
There are three levels of difficulty, with songs in each difficulty ranked with stars for intensity. The beginner level is truly beginner. I consider myself a DDR novice and I was bored with the ease of the beginner level after my second try.
The pad does allow for easy storage as it folds up and can be tucked away.Read more ›
There are two things that I expected but didn't get. #1 - they don't sing Disney songs. They just have it to some techno-beat. It's not some digital BOSE quality music, sounds like a ringtone. This is fine, it's for my kid. #2 - The characters didn't dance along with you but they do dance behind their DJ booth. This is FINE. It's for my kid.
The images aren't playstation quality. BUT, this is FOR MY KID and it was $20. So, it's awesome! HE LOVES IT!!! So much better than when he plays his aunts PS game b/c there are no girls in miniskirts, big [...], and songs w/lyrics I don't listen to.
If you have a kid, GET THIS!
Oh! There is no Minnie Mouse for those parents of girls.
Dance Dance Revolution is a very fun game. I myself own every ps2 version out. However, this doesn't even portray a fraction of the fun the real game has. The graphics are awful, and the lack of color makes it almost difficult to play. It is difficult to see the steps, and they come up rather quickly for a child (who this is intended for, obviously. If your're a real DDR player, then just splurge and get the ps2 or xbox, seriously.)
I really judge this product, though, by my sister's reaction. She adores DDR, and watches with awe whenever I play at the mall. That's the whole reason I got this for her. But after not even a full song she was done with it. It was just a cheaply made imitation of the real thing, that was hard to play, even for me (and I'm a good player). I understand that plug-n-play might not be the most advanced technology on the planet, but really. A ps2 ddr game costs $40 new, and you're getting maybe 70 songs. This was $30, and I got a handful, plus miserable graphics and absolutely no contrast. It just isn't worth it, even for a four-year old.
