- I also go over a few of the drawbacks, and then I show you how much fun this game is to play.
I've uploaded a few screenshots in the "Customer Images" section as well.
In all this time the Playstation has been somewhat left out in the cold. Singstar Dance was an early attempt to cash in on the "real dance move" craze, but at the end of the day it was a karaoke title with dancing spliced in as an afterthought. "Everybody Dance" is Sony Computer Entertainment's long-overdue dive into the genre. And it's a pretty good one.
As the game starts you need to set up the Move controller by pointing it at the screen. As with Just Dance, only one controller per player is used which you hold in your right hand. The system supports a maximum of two players.
There are a couple menu options:
Dance Now: Here, you can dive right into one of the 40 songs that the game comes with by selecting an album cover using your Move controller. Each song has an "energy level" indicator from 1 to 3. Since the Amazon listing doesn't have the song list as of the time of this writing, I'll list them here. They are:
- Amerie - 1 Thing (2)
- Barry White - You're the First, The Last, My Everything (1)
- Basement Jaxx - Where's Your Head At (3)
- Billy Idol with Generation - Dancing with Myself (3)

Overall, I'd say the artist selection is "hipper" than Just Dance or Dance Central, the kind of set list you might see from a DJ in a club. This may be an advantage or a drawback depending on your musical tastes.
Once you select a song, you can choose one of three levels: Beginner, Intermediate, and Professional. Beginner and Intermediate are about the difficulty of a typical song in Just Dance, with basic dance moves. Professional, on the other hand, adds things like complex movements, spins, jumps, and more expert-caliber choreography. Master any song at the Professional level, and you'll surely wow them at your next wedding or party.
Finally, you can select a length of the song. "Normal" songs range around 3-5 minutes, while "Short" versions last about 1-2 minutes.
Game play itself is fairly simple. As with all the other dance games, your goal is to match the on-screen dancer by mirroring his or her moves. While Just Dance has a silhouette to follow and Dance Central uses a hipster doofus cartoon character, Everybody Dance displays a real video image of a human dancer in a gray color. I personally prefer this, as it's easier to pinpoint the precise moves to follow. It's a nice touch that the video image looks like the artist, and the choreography does a great job of capturing the artist's style; in many cases, the moves mimic the same ones the artists perform in their video.
The more accurate your moves are, the more points you'll rack up and you'll be awarded one to five stars at the end. You'll also be rewarded for "streaks" of contiguous successful moves. As with Just Dance, if you stand still and just wave your arms in the right way, you'll be able to rack up points. But of course, the fun in this game isn't in collecting points, it's in performing the real dance moves.
As much as the game is derivative of previous dance games, there are a couple features in Everybody Dance that are truly innovative. While you're playing the game, you can watch the original artist's video playing in the background. Press the "triangle" button and it switches to a live video image of you. You'll even see a "trail of light" that shows your Move controller's motion. This feature is extremely useful when you're learning the dance moves, as you can precisely compare your body position and moves to the on-screen character's.
Once the dance is over, you'll see your point total, number of stars, and longest streak. You'll also be able to view a 30 second video clip of your performance, as well as 10 snapshots that were taken during the performance of you in various poses. You have the option of saving them to the PS3 hard drive or posting them to Facebook or Twitter (and to the PS3 Community).
By default, you dance in solo mode until a second player turns on their Move Controller. Once that's done, the menu changes to "Battle Mode", where you can compete against each other in any of the songs in Beginner, Intermediate, and Professional levels. Alternatively, you can also select "Dance Partners", where each player gets his or her own unique choreographed moves in a single dance routine. Bear in mind that for two players, you need at least 8-10 feet of space in front of the Playstation Eye so that both of you fit comfortably on the screen, and even then you may end up bumping into each other or hitting each other.
"Party" mode is another pretty cool innovation. It starts off by asking you to take pictures of each person who's participating, from 2 up to 20 people. Then, it'll pair two competitors at a time to a dance-off. The two selected dancers can choose a song, difficulty level, and song length to compete to. The rounds keep going until you stop, at which time you'll be shown the overall winner (based on number of songs won, awards won, and longest streaks), rankings, and the biggest rival.
The "Dance Studio" menu offers three options: Dance Creator, Dance Class, and Dance Workout. "Dance Creator" lets you record and play your own routines, either solo or with a partner. You're shown a full-screen image of yourself (with the music video playing in the corner) and you basically record yourself dancing. You can then play your (or others') saved routines from the Dance Now, Party, or Dance Creator menus (complete with very accurate scoring).
"Dance Class" is a great way to learn the dance moves, highly recommended for the "Professional" difficulty level. The system will break down the song into short sections of about 30 seconds each, and you loop through each section 4 times. Surprisingly, it took me only one or two times going through each section to master it for most songs, even at professional level.
With "Dance Workout", you start out by setting up a new profile. You take your picture and set your weight using the Move Controller. Then, you select a pre-defined workout which consists of similar songs bundled together at different difficulty levels. Each workout consists of 3 songs and lasts about 10 minutes (Professional+ workouts consist of 5 songs and last 15-20 minutes). There are 12 workouts in total across the different difficulty levels.
As you work out, a calorie meter is displayed on top of the screen showing you the target calories for each song. As long as you match the hand movements, you'll get credit for the calories, but of course to get a true workout you need to be "honest" and really do all the motions you're asked to do with your whole body.
Choosing "Get More Songs" will quit the game and take you to the Playstation Store to download additional DLC. As of this writing (October 21, 2011) there were no songs available yet, but expect that to change very soon.
"Galleries" is where you can go to visit all your past saved performances, either ones you saved to your hard drive or uploaded. You can also visit the "Community Gallery" which shows the 30-second videos and photos that others around the world have uploaded. You can vote for videos you like which will help them rise in popularity. As of this writing the game has only been out for a few days, and yet there are already hundreds of videos out there, a few surprisingly good, most not so good. Some observations: men currently seem to outnumber women by a large margin, and grown men should *really* think twice before uploading a video of themselves dancing to Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair".
You have the option of turning "singing" on and off. If you turn singing on, you can sing into the Playstation Eye microphone, or into a USB microphone or wireless headset. After each song you'll get a "singing rating", but that's about it--it doesn't even record your performance.
Everybody Dance is an interesting game to rate, mainly because it naturally leads to comparisons with the games that came before it. I'd say from a "pure fun" perspective, Just Dance still holds the advantage. From a "motion detection accuracy" perspective, Dance Central's full body tracking is arguably superior than the Wii or the PS3's "one-handed solution" for these kinds of games. If you come with pre-set expectations from either of those games, you might be disappointed.
Having said that, Everybody Dance does do both of those things pretty well, and is an excellent game on its own merits. The innovations that Sony brought to the table, including more advanced choreography in original artist's own style, the community features, the accuracy of the "Dance Creator" (which is definitely superior to the same feature on Just Dance for the Kinect), and the ability to dance side-by-side with the on-screen character all catapult Everybody Dance into the same echelon as those games. And of course it is easily the best dancing game available for the Playstation Move right now.
But one of my favorite is the Dance Workout mode – By using the Dance Workout feature, I can track my fitness progress and calories burned during my dance sessions so I am always trying to one up myself! There are a few other modes like Dance Creator. Party Play, Sing Along, and has three levels of difficulty throughout the game.
Please keep in mind that the PlayStation Move and Eye camera will be required to play the game, Again (both the move controllers and Eye are sold separately and will be needed) I say if you like Dance games then your going to love this one!
Sur this isn't Just dance but it is just as fun!! And I have EVERY dance game out there for the Playstation!
Lady Gaga, Usher, LMFAO, to go along with Barry White, and the classic "Kung Fu Fighting"
More songs are available for download in the PS store too!
I don't know how accurate the scoring or controllers work, it doesn't matter.
Watching the videos of yourself and other people doing the dances in the online community is a hoot! You can also upload to Facebook, twitter, and some other stuff I never used before.
There is also a dance class, make your own dance, and workout mode. Dance class teaches you a dance one move at a time. Workout mode combines several dances together to minimize the break between songs, and groups them according to what kind of workout you want.
I highly recommend this game for the whole family and individuals for a good time.
