Kinect had two Dance games at launch. Dance Central, and Dance Masters. You can't help buy compare the two. I happen to like both. They are different though.

Dance Central is more follow the moves the dancer is doing, and Dance Masters is a lot more like Dane Dance Revolution. Where you hit the marks at certain times.

Dance Masters has better multiplayer, with 2-player co-op on a single console and versus over Xbox live. But Dance Central has a better Single Player and a more mainstream music selection. While Dance Masters is more DDR (J-pop) type songs.

There are a few different types of "arrows" you have to hit at the certain times. (Note I only call them arrows to compare them to Dance Dance Revolution).

-There is a basic hit the mark type of circle, where there is a circle with a larger circle around it that shrinks. You have to move your hand in that space at the time both circles match up (usually goes with the beat).

-There is a hold circle (similar to the hold arrows), where you hold your hand in the circle for a set number of beats.

-There is a multi-beat circle (indicated by a number of dots in the smaller circle) which you have to hit the circle multiple times in a row to the beat.

-There is a foot marking that you hit with either left or right foot on the ground, also usually to the beat.

-There are silhouettes that you have to match the pose of. Which usually aren't too hard, but there is quite a variety in these. Usually if you are following the on screen dancer you can get these pretty easy.

-There is a steam line type of wave, that can vary in speed and location. You hit these by waving your hand across the line, at the same speed as the on screen dancer.

It was with great curiosity and some hesitancy that I picked up this game. All the reviews I had previously read were accurate. So as a recap:

*Hyper and not-quite dancing*
-Music is very J-Pop/Asian Dance Club/most people won't know it/you should be drinking Red Bull and Lattes.

-Dance moves are more akin to someone doing interpretive dance, or doing a routine for a show. You feel like you're a performer, if not *the* performer of the song. That's in contrast to Dance Central, where you feel more like you're dancing, learning moves that come more club-ish. I guess I see Dance Masters for someone wishing to be on stage. Dance Central, you're more on the dance floor.

-Much more ego-centric than Dance Central: You see your whole body/face (video, not just a silhouette), you're on stage equal with the avatar, your moves are very performer-oriented, you feel like you're a pop star singing the song more than someone dancing to a song.

-Costuming is kinda risque. Just a little more fantasy, risque, flamboyant. Think Lady Gaga more than club-goer.

-Don't expect to learn how to dance. Don't even expect to learn how to do the moves they're doing. Your only instruction will be your trying to figure out what this fantasy avatar's next move will be, and how it'll be interpreted in an arrowy swoop or flashing circle, which will make you just try and hit a particular spot.

Such a nice game! I have been excited for a long time waiting for the kinect. I ordered both dance central and dance master since I like dancing game so much! It turns out that these two games didn't dispoint me at all.
The dance central is definitly something as a hipop dance style and combing different styles hit songs. The break down system is help us to learn the dance, but I do thing it should slow down a little more since I am a slow learner for dancing steps.
The dance master is actually more close to the way I like to dance back to dance carpet time. I really like the musics in the dance master and the dance steps are actually abit easier than Dance Central. But without breakdown, it requires more practice. But I still like to play the game until I am completely tired. I also like the idea of "gesture", "ripple" and "parellel world". Which give you more motive to continue good hits.
So both of the first round dancing games of kinect is really heating things up. Remember to prepare enough water if you want to play a long game.

This is a real love-it-or-hate-it sort of game. I love it, but I'll be the first to admit it's not for everyone. Luckily there is a free demo available for download from Xbox Live (and I think you don't need to be Gold to get it) so if your Xbox 360 is online, do give this game a try before buying.

Dance Masters is to Dance Central what DDR is to Just Dance. Just Dance and Dance Central are great casual party games for everyone, young and old. However, Dance Masters and DDR are much more "niche". I think they should have put this under the DDR brand umbrella, or called it Dance Evolution like they did in Europe, because it really is an evolved, matless DDR. Instead of matching marks on a mat, now you have to match marks in 3-D space with your arms and legs. Like DDR, a player doesn't really look like they're dancing; until you memorize the choreography, you're going to look more like you're clawing your way out of a giant cobweb or fighting off invisible aliens. Unfortunately, there's no cueing or a training mode that lets you practice the songs; the only way to learn them is to play them. And there is a bit of lag between you and the screen (I think this is true for all Kinect games) but the game itself is very forgiving. The Light mode is very easy for even beginners to pass, and once you know the moves, you should be able to pass Extreme level or even Master.

Unless you're already a DDR fan, you probably won't recognize the music. The soundtrack is mostly remakes of "Konami originals", but I like these remakes much better than the ones they made for the Wii DDR games.
