Excerpt: Dancing games that make use of Sony’s Move controller can hardly do the job as well as Microsoft’s Kinect, although these games are a lot to do with the participation over anything else, and a lot of the audience just won’t care if the PlayStation Eye isn’t tracking your entire body, and as long as it is accurate for what it is, then why should it matter?
Conclusion: Although DanceStar Party doesn’t exceed expectations, it competantly meets them and the whole thing is delivered with the same kind of glossy accessibility that SingStar fans have come to know and love. Though unlikely to challenge Dance Central’s position as the leader of the dancing pack, its feature set is intelligently mapped out and perfect fit for a party game of this type; as far as PS Move based dancing goes this is about as good as you could hope for.
Excerpt: From the creators of Singstar (Sony London) come their next big party game entitled "DanceStar Party" which allows up to 20-players to engage in some amazing dance routines, 160 to be precise to around 40 songs.
Excerpt: The glory days of Dance Dance Revolution and its imitators have long gone by. With the newest generation of motion gaming tech, dance mats have been banished to the attic in favour of much more engaging, enjoyable methods of play; the rhythm genre having witnessed a sudden rise in popularity as instrument-based titles such as Guitar Hero and Rock Band have slowly declined.
Pros: With a diverse tracklist of 40 songs there’s something for everyone., Move is precise, easy to set-up, and consistent., Ability to create and share your own dance routines., Dance Partners (co-op) is a certified party-starter., Spotless, clutter-free menus and game interface., Available from most retailers for under £15 at launch.
Cons: Transition to the PSN Store is sluggish., Downloadable tracks are a bit on the steep side, only available in bundles., Without full-body tracking Workout Mode is ineffective., Despite Move’s precision, the game only allows for one controller per player.
Excerpt: Time to raise the roof and lower your dignity Silent Hill . Resident Evil . Penumbra . These names no longer strike fear in the heart of a gamer. Mention the name of any game with the word ‘Dance’ in it however, and you’ll soon see couch potatoes getting a better workout from the sudden trend of groove-on titles by running a mile quicker than ‘The Flash’.
Pros: Simple pick up and play dance-offs, Mixed set-list ensures something for everyone, Great multi-player for up to 20 players…
Cons: …if you have the money to fork out for all the accessories, Workout mode is a cheap addition, Really not much appeal when dancing solo
Excerpt: "Dancestar Party on Sonyn uusi bilepelisarja, joka kulkee oikeastaan lähes identtisillä linjoilla kuin Singstar Dance. Ideana on koota porukka yhteen ja alkaa tanssimaan pelin biisien tahdissa. Pelin Singstar-tyylinen, ei liian vakavasti itseään ottava pelitapa, sekä muun muassa bileet ja oman tanssin luonti -pelimuodot ovat erittäin hauskoja tapoja pelata peliä ja samalla päästä nauramaan itselleen kuin toisillekin hyvässä hengessä.
Excerpt: Remarque : PlayStation Move et PlayStation Eye indispensables . Après le chant, la coqueluche du jeu vidéo s'appelle : la danse. Sur le principe, quel que soit le jeu ou la console, tout le monde est d'accord. Il s'agit de reproduire le plus fidèlement possible la chorégraphie exécutée par un danseur à l'écran sur la chanson de votre choix, parmi celles proposées.
