Menus: Menus are easily navigated and, because of a certain situation where my mother had friends over for the evening, even they were quickly able to pick up how to go through the menus. Its simple, hold your arm out to the right or left and make a slapping motion to select. This already made the game better. I played Kinect Adventures and I found the menus a little frustrating because you have to hold your hand there while it figures out that's what you want, but with Dance Central its just a quick swipe and you move on. Outside of that, all of the menus are very clear and easily navigated to find what you want, that hardest part of which was selecting songs (going up and down the list).
Gameplay: The no control experience is really shown off at its best here as you actually get a good workout moving your body to the beats. Yes, you will have to get off of the couch and start moving back and forth to the rhythms. Overall the Kinect cameras will do a wonderful job at figuring out your motions and, because the game was designed this way, you won't notice any lag. That's right, you dance in time with the person on screen (literally mirroring their actions) and then the game will take a moment (to which you won't notice because you are dancing) to decide how well you performed the action.Read more ›
This game ROCKS! It is one of the funnest games I have ever played. Let me break it down for you.
1) Anyone can play. The game teaches you the dance moves. Then it gives you some practice trys. Then you get to "Perform".
2) The game gives really good feedback. When you miss a move, it shows you which part of your body wasn't moving right by outlining it in red.
3) The tracks are pretty good. There is a lot of music you would hear at clubs today and some that you haven't heard for a while.
4) The sound and visuals are pretty cool. I thought I would get bored listening to track during practice, but you really don't because you are concentrating on what is happening on screen.
5) Watching your friends play this is AWESOME. If they are good dancers (particularly hip-hop) it is a great way for them to perform. If they are not good dancers... well it is fun to watch them pretend.
1) You are going to need a lot of space. That should go without saying (this is a dance game).
2) Don't let your friends record you playing this game and then post it on youtube.
If you have a Kinect, you must buy this game.
The game's just fun... from the moment you boot it up. Even the menus are simple and fun to use - right hand selects menu choices, left hand takes you back a screen - though the game might actually benefit from slightly larger or spread out menu select buttons - and while you're systematically waving your hands you're already realizing that this feels something like the future. A few futuristic waves of your hands later you're ready to dance. 5 seconds into the first dance-breakdown, which is like dance practice before the performance, I was already smiling ear to ear... six seconds later I was giggling like a school girl.... and let me tell you... I'm a large man - not prone to giggling in this manner... and I didn't stop giggling for almost an hour... your results may vary. Dance Central is a very special sort of game... no let me take that back... Dance Central is a special sort of EXPERIENCE.... the sort of experience that feels silly and immature and may even be embarrassing at times, but not the kind of experience that you'll feel ashamed of... en' contrar ... you'll want to tell everyone you know about it...Read more ›
This morning I picked one up along with Dance Central, and for a guy who plays "serious" games, I am truly knocked off my feet by the technology and fun. You can't cheat your way through this game, standing still and waving your arms in just the right motions like my little relatives do with the Wii games.The Kinect sensor actually reads your hands, feet, hips, arms, legs...everything. The Kinect even knew if the back of my palm was facing the camera or I was simply holding it sideways.
The sound is fantastic coming through 5.1 with the subwoofer cranked up, and the track listings should please just about everybody with songs and rountines covering hip hop to disco. Plus, the game has promised downloadable tracks, and seeing as how this was developed by Harmonix (Rockband, which has an astounding download library) I think it's safe to assume plenty of music is coming down the pipeline.
And for all of you other guys out there like me who just stand like trees swaying in the wind when you go with your wives/girlfriends dancing, each song has a fantastic tutorial for every single move. The game will walk you thorough each motion, slowing it way down if need be.Read more ›

Fun dance game for Xbox 360. I only liked some of the songs, but there is an option to buy more songs.Published 1 month ago by amazonwoman
This game gives me a great workout. I hardly realize I'm burning calories and sweating it up. I play alone or with friends, either way it's a super fun way to stay in shape.Published 2 months ago by KinkKitten
