Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix (GC)
4 July 2013
Excerpt: Waluigi has stolen the four music keys from Truffle Tower and it’s your job as Mario or Luigi to reclaim these keys before the power of music wreaks havoc across the land causing natural disasters. Your dancing skills will come in handy as you clear many obstacles in your way. When in doubt, dance; that’s the motto of this game.
Pros: The story mode is often hilarious, Almost visually on par with traditional Mario platformers, Story mode serves as a good introduction to DDR newcomers, Some great and much-needed revisions to the DDR gameplay
Cons: Way too easy, even on super hard mode, Story mode is too short, The higher difficulty levels aren't immediately selectable, Song quality isn't consistent, especially in non-Mario tracks
Summary: Mario's first dancing game probably won't change much through localization, so check out this import review to help you decide whether it should be on your holiday shopping list!
Pros: Dance pad looks good and works well, Great soundtrack full of remixed classics, Special steps are fun and surprisingly difficult, The best DDR yet for beginners
Cons: Max. difficulty is lower than in most DDR games, Missing some pro features such as Edit Mode and Double Mode, Must beat the annoying story mode twice to unlock all songs, Only Mario and Luigi are playable
Summary: While it's not likely to give you callouses on your feet, Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix offers a fun introduction to the DDR universe, with a selection of tracks which might not be the strongest in the series, but do the job well enough. If you're a fan of Dance Dance Revolution, or just a fan of the Mario series in general, this is definitely worth a go.
Excerpt: Nothing says marketable like a company mascot that can transcend seamlessly through the ages of gaming. Leaving no genre unused and with practically nowhere else to turn, Nintendo, like the over-bearing stage-mother that it is, has pushed its head-lining child – Mario - into a musical number, as it turns out Mario has two left feet.
Conclusion: Si vous êtes un fan de DDR, passez de suite votre chemin, Dancing Stage Mario Mix ne présente aucun intérêt pour vous, même s’il est signé Konami . Par contre, si vous souhaitez découvrir de manière ludique cette discipline, alors vous serez aux anges. Dommage que le jeu soit un peu court, et les mix pas vraiment adaptés. Et pis il y a un autre problème. Le mode versus est vraiment extra. Seulement, voilà.
