Gameplay

Just as in earlier releases in the franchise, DanceDanceRevolution is a multiplayer Dance / Music / Rhythm hybrid game based on the original Japanese arcade classic of the same name. The game is packed with a blend of licensed popular and classic dance tracks, as well as tracks created especially for the game by game developer and publisher, Konami. The player's goal is to keep time with the precise rhythm of each track as they are on queued by on-screen arrows that scroll up the game screen from the bottom. The top of the screen is the "step zone" - four static arrows pointing left, down, up and right. As the scrolling arrows pointing in one of these directions makes contact with like arrows in the step zone players indicate the correct direction and duration, again in time with the song. The more accurate you are in doing this, the more points you score, with even more points available as simultaneous arrow combinations occur. Success also maintains your life bar, while a poor performance decreases it, eventually leading to the end of your turn if the bar is entirely depleted.

Typically rhythm input is done with your feet using the DanceDanceRevolution dance pad controller - included with this bundle, but DanceDanceRevolution for PlayStation 3 also includes support for the PlayStation Move control system (components sold separately). The integration of PlayStation Move allows for several unique features, for example, Dance Off Mode which, via the Move system's PlayStation Eye camera, allows players to take turns dancing to the game's iconic scrolling arrow queues, with the winner receiving the most points. In standard play players can combine the Move Motion controller and the dance pad allowing for a dancer's steps and their upper body to get into the game. The PlayStation Eye camera also allows for the creation of videos that can be shared via YouTube and Facebook. Another piece of functionality players will enjoy is Club Mode, which allows you to string together from 4 - 20 tracks, back-to-back. This eliminates load time between track, keeping the high-energy action going while you knock off combos that unleash point multipliers. Additional features include: unlockable tracks, motivational challenges, tutorials and the improved graphic quality PlayStation 3 is famous for.

A lot of Playstation 3 owners have been waiting a long time for Dance Dance Revolution to make it to the PS3. Four long years later, it's finally arrived. Was it worth the wait?

The first thing I noticed when I opened my DDR box was a brand new, sleek black dance pad. it definitely looks a lot "cooler" than the old white dance pads on the Wii and the PS3. The pad pretty much works the same as always--just plug it into an available USB port and you're all set.

The options on DDR should be familiar to anyone who's played it on the PS2 or the Wii.

1) In "Free Dance" mode where you can just dive into dancing. You select the number of players (single player or multiplayer) and then you can choose any song at one of four difficulty levels (beginner, basic, difficult, expert).

2) "Club Mode" is where you basically have to proceed thorugh different levels of difficulty to win the game. unfortunately, the developers decided to put in things which seem more like gimmicks than anything else. There are features like "TRICKS" which will suddenly change the difficulty level in the middle of a song. As you finish songs in other "clubs", you can move them to your own "club". Honestly, this section was much more confusing than it should have been, and the confusing and poorly written explanation of "How to Play" at the beginning only made things worse. Konami should have stuck with keeping this simple.

3) "Dance Off" mode is where up to four players can take turns dancing. There's something called a "combo roulette" which does things like speed up the dancing, shift the top arrows around, make the arrows bigger. But what it ends up doing is make the competition confusing and frustrating.

My wife and I used to absolutely love DDR. We would play for hours on end into the night. I had high hopes, and was excited to pick this up on the day it came out.

Pros:

DDR is finally in HD, lots of nice eye Candy
Downloadable Content, if it would work that is.

Cons:

Surprise! Paper pads suck, and there are no decent alternatives.
A lot of the songs really aren't "dance" tracks, and only one or two techno songs similar to what made DDR fun in the first place.

For starters, the PS Store errors out when you try to open up the section to buy new songs, but maybe I have to wait until the next PSN Update.

Second, the paper pad really, really blows, but this shouldn't be much of a surprise to anybody who's played DDR before. So far I haven't seen anybody interested in making better ones, either. I did have my trusty Red Octane $100 pads stored away in the closet, plugged them in, and low and behold, they worked...sorta. The left and down arrows work, but up and right are swapped when you press them :'( I figured they wouldn't have worked, but I can dream...right?

The song selection is kinda meh. Seemed like they were more interested in getting 'popular' music than music you should be dancing to. Jason Mraz? Really? I'm dancing to Jason Mraz??? Give me back my Afronova and Captain Jack! To add to that, I haven't figured out yet how to, or if you can unlock songs, or if buying them is the only way.

Overall, a disappointment, but I'll hang on to it a while hoping for some decent replacement pads and at least some good DLC.

I was hesitant with purchasing this game at first. I was hoping to find one of the original DDRs that were sold for the PS2 but for the PS3 because my PS3 isn't backwards compatible. The sample songs listed above seemed to be cheesy and did not incorporate the J-pop songs from BeForU and Naoki that I have grown to love over the years. However, I recently found out by going into the PS store that it's possible to download songs from the original games! The song packs are $5/each. So it's definitely worth it! From what I've seen, all of the discs are there. I'm springing $20 for the two supernovas and the two DDR extremes. :D AT LAST! A SINGLE GAME THAT CAN HAVE ALL THE SONGS WE LOVE!!!

Being a DDR fan since the early PS2 era, I was excited to hear about DDR finally making a jump to the PS3, since both Nintendo and Microsoft got to enjoy 3 installments of Hottest Party and Universe respectively before Sony could get their DDR fix.

First off, I'm not gonna lie; the game is great. Its well worth the $40 bundle especially since most game retail at $60 with no additional accessories. Yes, the soundtrack has lost its lust over time and instead of putting in an amazing techno soundtrack like the early era, it is now full of the top 40 hits you hear on the radio. Not bad for mainstream fans, but older fans will be disappointed.

Fortunately, us core DDR fans are gifted with downloadable content with past DDR games which range from DDR/Konamix to SuperNOVA. Sadly there is no Extreme 2 track pack, which happens to be my favorite in the series. After downloading the track packs, I am now enjoying the game much more.

The Club mode isn't as bad as I expected. Granted playing the same 10 songs over and over and over and over again on beginner gets boring fast but once you start unlocking songs about an hour or two in, its not so bad.

The dance pad that came with the bundle is better built than my old PS2 pads. They don't slip as much, but they do move when I play fast paced songs on Expert so after every song, I have to readjust the pad. Nothing major though. I would love to see some PS3 metal pads though.

Honestly, my only real complaint other than half the soundtrack being lackluster is the lack of downloadable songs. I thought Konami promised a massive back catalog of old songs. I would easily drop another $40-50 on songs if I could download past favorites. Imagine having the arcade experience of 300+ amazing songs on one home console. *sigh* One can only dream...

My final word: Its worth the $40 I spent. I wouldn't pay more for it though.
