he game gets 4 stars. The new DDR Ultramix3 is better (it has songs that most people recognize). The game does have lots of fun songs to dance to. It is a wonderful workout and a great way to get exersize. I totally recommend the game.
The dance mat gets 4 stars. You're probably getting this set for the dance mat. A few positive points: works wonderfully! Much better than the cheap Konami mat that you can get with other sets. It is pretty and your feet don't stick to the mat. Also, there is none of the wait time that plagues other mats. I recommend this! On the negative side, the cord isn't the longest... if you are going to be more than five feet from your game console you are going to need an extender. One other point is that the mat is said to be "non-slip" - and mine is not. It sides all around when you are dancing (I tried it on carpet and on a hard surface). It's not too bad, but a bit annoying when you have to reposition the mat every few songs.
If you are a DDR amature, getting a cheap pad would be a better idea than this one. The game is NOT as easy as it looks! It is a great workout however. If you are a returning DDRer, this is a great buy.
