E - Everyone
When most people think of DDR, they think of the insane kids in the arcades that can move quicker then the speed of sound. Thus making the normal person too embarrassed person too afraid to get up the balls to just get up there and dance. Luckily, Konami has brought DDR home a while ago, and with the latest installment, they hope to bring it home to the masses.
There is nothing lost from the graphics at the arcade, to the ones on your personal TV. The arrows still come in a varity of diffrent colors, and all kinds of diffrent directions, none of which look bad on the regular TV. (I just ended
For once, sound is the biggest part of a review. The sound track of this version of DDR is one of the most well rounded ones. There are many of the classic songs the made DDR what it is , while also a great mix of brand new songs, which appeal to a "American" audience. The quality of the music is just like it was coming off a CD with just music. Another all over good section.9.4/10
Here's the hard part of this review, because unlike the arcade version, the "at-home" one does not come with a pad to play on. So, the person buying the game has to dish out at least another $20 just to get a horrible pad, and at least $60 to get a nice one. With the cheap plastic pad that slides all over, the gameplay sucks because it becomes much more frustrating. With the expensive pad, it becomes better, but one has to ask themselves, "Is it worth $100+ just to play DDR at home?" Anyone can play with the controller, but really, how fun is that?7.0/10
Well, this is an easy one. If you love playing DDR, then the lasting appeal is there is a strong sense, because you'll always play. If you're not a big fan, it'll still be good to pop in while a bunch of friends are over. Either way, it'll almost always get some use.8.5/10
For most people DDR is either a love or hate situation. If you love it, you'll probably agree with my review. If you hate it, you won't. Simple as that.
Overall Rating: 8.5
