Summary: My kids got this for Christmas (2 girls 10 and 13). They are having a blast playing and taking turns (which is not easy for them usually). I had read other ratings before buying and was curious about the adults who had fun with their kids using this item. I can attest that it is loads of fun for parents to use too and maybe will turn out to be good exercise too. Dad just looks into the room and laughs before moving on...
Summary: I just started playing DDR a lot about 2 months ago. After about three sessions, I got really used to the wonderful metal pads you use in the arcades. When I bought this game, I couldn't bear to think of playing on a flimsy plastic pad, so I researched on eBay and on ddrfreak.com and found a good, *relatively* inexpensive imported metal pad. It was worth it. The arcade experience was duplicated perfectly. As for the game, I can't say enough good things about it.
Summary: For a while, American fans of the dancing video game Dance Dance Revolution have been cheated. While the game went popular at the arcades in Japan, Konami of America didn't bother bringing it to the US, apparently feeling people would rather have more shooting, fighting, and racing games that are blending into each other. Eventually, after a while, Konami released Dance Dance Revolution USA into American arcades - and were summarily booed for it.
Summary: Now I've only been playing ddr for around 4 1/2 months. I've been a addict ever since I tried last July.. and failed misrably at Butterfly upswing at an anime convention. I was overjoyed when I bought DDR USA, and two dance pads for the playstation. I formed love for new songs that I had never even tried before "Dub I Dub" and "Afronova" to name a few! But I wanted more songs, only to find a DDR 4th mix machine in my town!
Summary: Okay, I'll admit every word, the US release of the first DDR was the worst DDR title ever to hit the shelves, but it's only good for those who have never tried the other imported DDR titles for the PlayStation and Dreamcast. Sorry, but us DDR veterans are too familiar with the first US release. Finally it's the year 2002, and the newest sequel to DDR has finally arrive.
Summary: I first started hearing about Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) when I read through a O.P.M. and saw almost every reviewer's favorite game was DDR. I went to my local arcade and started playing, and haven't stoped yet. If you play in the arcade for the first time, you will get nervous, but after you play for a while, you get comfortable, and start to crave the fan attention. After I got into DDR, I showed the PC clones to my friends and they all got hooked on that.
