4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but not Excellent, December 12, 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: DanceMasters - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
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. There are only two dancers (one male, one female), and they are automatically selected and clothed depending on the song you select. Kind of a disappointment coming from DDR games where you can pick from a vast number of characters and alternate outfits.

I am truly hoping that Konami releases some good, reasonably priced DLC tracks in the future. One thing that is certain about this game is that if you give it a chance, you will have fun and get a good workout!
