Anyway, as for the game itself, I thought that the game was a decent game. Sure, some people would be turned off at the fact that it has Britney Spears in it. I'm still somewhat of a fan nowadays, though I can admit that she has her problems and this game came out in a different era when she was still huge. The game itself is a dance/rhythm game. You don't play as Britney herself, but rather as an up-and-coming dancer who she would pick to tour with her. It's a fun game, but it can get repetitive, also there is some difficulty in some areas on how to keep up with the patterns but you can get used to it after a while. Also, there are only 5 Britney songs, basically 5 of her known hits from that time anyway. The songs can get repetitive after a while. If you don't like her music, you can mute it.
Bottom line, don't judge a book by its cover. I was surprised back in 02 to actually read some positive reviews for this game. It's a not a bad game by any means. I recommend it to fans of these types of games, Britney Spears fans or even people who are just curious. That's all, peace.
The gameplay for the most part is basic. You try to press the correct buttons with the correct timing. Mostly you are using the x, circle, square and triangle buttons, but occasionally a directional button will be thrown in, which adds to the challenge immensely. You are auditioning to be one of Britney's backup dancers by dancing off against other dancers. You go through ten auditions before being allowed to audition against Britney herself. After each audition, you are awarded points based on your performance. These points eventually reward you with "backstage passes" that allow you to see video clips of Britney.
The one innovative gameplay element that I like about this game is that when your competitor does well, he or she can make your moves harder. Every time your opponent strings a combo of ten button presses together, it adds or changes your sequence. It may change one of your buttons, it may add a directional button, it may cause one of your button presses to be moved up or back, or it may add one or two extra button presses so that you have to hit ten buttons in rapid succession. Of course, by stringing together a combo of ten yourself, you do the same thing to your opponent. Although this can be infuriating at times, it at least adds some challange to an otherwise simple game.
I do have a few complaints about the game. First, it is too short and easy. You could play through the game with one dancer in a few hours easily, and through the entire game with all six dancers in a weekend. Therefore, I would just recommend this as a rental. Also, there are only five songs, and if you were not sick of hearing "Oops...I did it again" before, you will be after playing this game. My second complaint is that there should be a replay option. One problem with rhythm games is that while you are playing, you really cannot afford to look at what is going on because you have to be paying close attention to the meter. There should be a way to replay what you just did so you can watch all the moves that your dancer just did.
If you like rhythm games, try this as a rental. You just might find the gameplay very addictive. If you like rhythm games and you are also a fan of Britney's, you might just find this worth you money. But for serious gamers, Dance Beat really does not offer much depth.
