3.0 out of 5 stars compromised to fit more songs, March 21, 2012

This review is from: DanceDanceRevolution II - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
got this game for the wife and 9 yr old kid. they both enjoyed the first DDR for the wii but wanted more song selections. the first thing they noticed with DDR2 was the hand movements (requiring the nunchuck and wiimote) were gone and the game reverted back to its arcade roots of only foot movements. the dancing characters also lost the ability to follow the actual movements. they just randomly dance to their own beat. sometimes moving fast even on a slow song. the first DDR had the characters standing on a 3d model of the dance mat and actually followed the directions that appeared on the screen. this was great for the beginner since they get a visual cue on how to achieve the best flow of movements. on DDR2 there are times when no dancing character will appear. in its place will be a music video but at other times there would just be a blank screen in the background. i tried playing with the game options but it seems turning music video on or off was the only one that worked. after playing the same song for the 2nd or 3rd time we got tired of seeing the low quality music video. the background visualizations/special effects that were cool in the first DDR had to be given up in order to fit longer and more variety of music.
