5.0 out of 5 stars Great Kinect game for DDR fans. November 8, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Kinect had two Dance games at launch. Dance Central, and Dance Masters. You can't help buy compare the two. I happen to like both. They are different though.

Dance Central is more follow the moves the dancer is doing, and Dance Masters is a lot more like Dane Dance Revolution. Where you hit the marks at certain times.

Dance Masters has better multiplayer, with 2-player co-op on a single console and versus over Xbox live. But Dance Central has a better Single Player and a more mainstream music selection. While Dance Masters is more DDR (J-pop) type songs.

There are a few different types of "arrows" you have to hit at the certain times. (Note I only call them arrows to compare them to Dance Dance Revolution).

-There is a basic hit the mark type of circle, where there is a circle with a larger circle around it that shrinks. You have to move your hand in that space at the time both circles match up (usually goes with the beat).

-There is a hold circle (similar to the hold arrows), where you hold your hand in the circle for a set number of beats.

-There is a multi-beat circle (indicated by a number of dots in the smaller circle) which you have to hit the circle multiple times in a row to the beat.

-There is a foot marking that you hit with either left or right foot on the ground, also usually to the beat.

-There are silhouettes that you have to match the pose of. Which usually aren't too hard, but there is quite a variety in these. Usually if you are following the on screen dancer you can get these pretty easy.

-There is a steam line type of wave, that can vary in speed and location. You hit these by waving your hand across the line, at the same speed as the on screen dancer.

By Peter
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
It was with great curiosity and some hesitancy that I picked up this game. All the reviews I had previously read were accurate. So as a recap:

*Hyper and not-quite dancing*
-Music is very J-Pop/Asian Dance Club/most people won't know it/you should be drinking Red Bull and Lattes.

-Dance moves are more akin to someone doing interpretive dance, or doing a routine for a show. You feel like you're a performer, if not *the* performer of the song. That's in contrast to Dance Central, where you feel more like you're dancing, learning moves that come more club-ish. I guess I see Dance Masters for someone wishing to be on stage. Dance Central, you're more on the dance floor.

-Much more ego-centric than Dance Central: You see your whole body/face (video, not just a silhouette), you're on stage equal with the avatar, your moves are very performer-oriented, you feel like you're a pop star singing the song more than someone dancing to a song.

-Costuming is kinda risque. Just a little more fantasy, risque, flamboyant. Think Lady Gaga more than club-goer.

-Don't expect to learn how to dance. Don't even expect to learn how to do the moves they're doing. Your only instruction will be your trying to figure out what this fantasy avatar's next move will be, and how it'll be interpreted in an arrowy swoop or flashing circle, which will make you just try and hit a particular spot.

5.0 out of 5 stars A dancing game come ture November 5, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Such a nice game! I have been excited for a long time waiting for the kinect. I ordered both dance central and dance master since I like dancing game so much! It turns out that these two games didn't dispoint me at all.
The dance central is definitly something as a hipop dance style and combing different styles hit songs. The break down system is help us to learn the dance, but I do thing it should slow down a little more since I am a slow learner for dancing steps.
The dance master is actually more close to the way I like to dance back to dance carpet time. I really like the musics in the dance master and the dance steps are actually abit easier than Dance Central. But without breakdown, it requires more practice. But I still like to play the game until I am completely tired. I also like the idea of "gesture", "ripple" and "parellel world". Which give you more motive to continue good hits.
So both of the first round dancing games of kinect is really heating things up. Remember to prepare enough water if you want to play a long game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but not Excellent December 12, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I will say this first and foremost: I am a DDR freak. I own every home DDR game for the PS2, Xbox, and Xbox 360. So, that being said, I was highly anticipating this game. I really like this game. I also own Dance Central, and I really like that one also. From this perspective, I will tell you that you cannot and should not compare the two games- their mechanics, demographic, and overall feels are at completely different ends of the spectrum!

Here are some points I'd like to make about Dance Masters:

- My first thought upon loading up a song: Wow, this is really freaking FAST! The lack of a practice mode and and abundance 150+ BPM songs really can overwhelm you at first. However, the choreography repeats itself a decent amount throughout a song, so by the time I had played some of the 1-3 "flame" (read: difficulty indicator) songs a few times in "Light" mode, I was able to get A or AA scores pretty easily. I haven't really tackled the ones that are 4+ flames yet, but it's probably a similar situation. Just keep at it; it's actually pretty fun and rewarding to get the choreography right without it being spoon-fed to you (ala Dance Central). You can jump into a song on light, watch closely, and be nailing the choreography by the end of it!

-The biggest con I've found so far is that the songs get kinda old, kinda fast. You need to unlock a lot of the content, which may be a turn off for some people, myself included. Don't get me wrong, I like earning new songs; the problem lies in the fact that there are only 30 total songs in the game, so you're given a pittance to go through when you first start out. If there were more songs overall, I wouldn't mind the tough unlocks.

-I wish you could select your dancer, costume, etc.
