Excerpt: Even if you've never played a DDR game, chances are pretty good you've seen people playing it (or Pump It Up) in an arcade. On the off-chance you haven't, here's the gist: You stand on a dance pad that has up, down, left and right arrows.
Excerpt: This is the big leagues. Dance Dance Revolution is by far the biggest dancing game out there. It's enjoyed widespread success, a healthy run in an otherwise wilting arcade market, and a number of console releases across each system of the current generation.
Excerpt: It's time to get your body movin' with Dance Dance Revolution Extreme 2 , the dancing video game from Konami! It's all the rage at video game arcades and you can get it for home - but what is it? We give you the 411 and review the newest version of this awesome game.
Conclusion: Quite possibly the best US release DDR has ever seen. Yes, seriously. The addition of online play and Dance Master mode do more to invigorate the series than you'd think, and flailing around like a dumbass is still damn fun.
Conclusion: Of course all of the songs play with the utmost quality since it's what the game is centered around. Extreme 2 is also compatible with Dolby's Pro Logic II for some really great sound. The music selection is decent, but could have used some work.
