Gameplay
As with all DanceDanceRevolution (DDR) games, gameplay in Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party 3 consists of the player mimicking as closely as possible the movements flashed on the screen in the form of directional arrows and other prompts. The goal is to do this as best as possible to gain as many points as you can, maintain a healthy "dance gauge" (your life bar) and get a good grade for each dance routine. Yet Hottest Party 3 for Wii sets itself apart from previous versions in this by including new input methods. The game bundle includes the familiar DDR floor peripheral for registering dance steps, which make up the majority of the game actions, and like earlier DDR versions for Wii, also includes Wii Remote and nunchuck support. What is new is the game's Wii Balance board integration. The balance board is an optional accessory (sold separately), and allows for a whole new way to play in workout mode among others. The game also features 2-player local versus multiplayer support, Mii integration and new costume customization functionality and new game modes.

Song List
Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party 3 is backed by a massive list of 50 foot-stompng songs and remixes to move your body to. They include both tracks produced in-house by game publisher Konami and original pieces, now including major licensed Latin hits. Songs include:

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Workout! January 7, 2010
By Laura I
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Length: 3:30 Mins
I'm a relative beginner at DDR, I started about 6 months ago with the Hottest Party 2, and now have this game, Hottest Party 3. I should stress that prior to playing DDR, I considered myself a klutz, physically incompetent, and had no sense of rhythm. All the same, I wanted to get good at DDR, because I knew plenty of thin and fit ladies that used the game as a workout. You see, I hate cardio exercise, it's just too boring for me. This game has changed all that. I play for an hour every day. Because I am relatively small, I can only burn about 450 calories an hour on this game, but I know plenty of larger people who burn way over 500. Quite frankly, the game is addictive and super fun. I love it!

I've included a video in this review, for people who have never played DDR before. I originally made this video for my sister who is just starting to learn. Many new players try and move there feet from arrow and then back to the center of the mat. As you can see, I move my feet from arrow to arrow. I also alternate feet, I don't rely heavily on one foot over the other. Also, you can sort of see that my weight is shifted onto the balls of my feet, which makes it easier to move faster. I am not flat on my heels. Also, yes, I am wearing shoes while I play. I have high arches and am prone to stress fractures and I need some sort of arch support. The shoes I'm wearing are made out of that light Crocs material. The shoes are light enough that they don't tear up the mat. Finally, if you are new, keep in mind that it took me 2 weeks of playing daily before I could consistently pass songs on beginner level. Learning new skills as an adult can be difficult. I remember when I was learning to crochet, I wanted to gauge my eyes out with the crochet hook it was so frustrating.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tearing Up the Dance Floor for a Third Time October 29, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
While 2009 may be known as the year of the musical games due to the ungodly number of Guitar Hero installments (plus one Rock Band) there is another reason to call it as such. Dance Dance Revolution ("DDR"): Hottest Part 3 had the misfortune of being released on the same night as Tekken 6, Forza Motorsport 3, and the new Ratchet and Clank game, making it an obscure title that gained little attention. Fortunately for Konami, however, this nerd looked forward to DDRHP3 exclusively on the night of its release and picked it up at midnight. After playing the game for two days I can safely say it was somewhat worth the price and I will be using it frequently for both leisure as well as exercise.

The one thing I would like to state is that the last DDR game I bought was DDR: Konamix before I entered college in Summer 2002. I have not played DDR: Hottest Party 2 or any other mix since so forgive me if I rave about a feature that was introduced earlier.

The first thing I noticed off the bat was the DDR School, something I wished they had included in previous versions that I had played. This allowed the player to truly explore the dance pad before going crazy. It went through the basic without making you feel like either an idiot or Grandma for inquiring. Similar to the beginner mode in the Guitar Hero franchise, DDRHP3 also has a relax mode that is way too easy. This allows the player to figure out foot placement, movement, and balance since it can be frustrating to get into a game and consistently fail. While most DDR veterans and casual gamers will not need to utilize these features, kudos to Konami for integrating a user-friendly set of features to entice new gamers since most installments just throw you in the fray.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Most of the other reviews have already touched upon the overall strengths and weaknesses of Dance Dance Revolution 3 as a game. On a positive note, I appreciate the fresher track list with more recognizable music, and I like the fact that they use more actual videos from the actual stars. I also liked that owners of Dance Dance Revolution 2 could unlock costumes and songs with their saved data. I was a little disappointed that the songs and videos are abridged versions and that the soundtrack list was somewhat limited.

Dance Rance Revolution 3 for the Wii continues to have the "fun" features which makes DDR so fun to play alone or with friends and family. The dance mat controller was the first and is still the best controller for accurate tracking of movements.

There are different modes to suit from everyone from beginners to seasoned pros whose feet move faster than a hummingbird's wings."DDR School" provides an excellent tutorial for those getting started. "Tournament Mode" lets you compete in a "DDR Tournament" with different challenges (you can play yourself or with 3 others, but there's no online support). "Training Mode" will take you step-by-step through any song you choose so you can practice particularly complex moves. "Relaxed Mode" is for those who just want to play without any pressure.

As most of my reviews do, the rest of this one will focus on how useful it is for exercise and fitness (i.e. "Workout Mode"). And in this area, it is a solid winner.

Konami invented exercise games before anyone knew what an exercise game was. Long before Wii Fit or Wii Sports, there was Dance Dance Revolution.
