Summary: The DDR games are probably the best PS2 games around. My sister doesn't have a taste for this music, but that's because she doesn't have an open mind. That's why I think Bemani (Konami's music brand) Should make some sort of make your own DDR game. You can stick the PS2 disk into a PC DVD-Rom drive and download your own flavor of music onto a certain section of the disk. From there, you can put the disk into the PS2 and create the dance steps in edit mode.
Summary: After playing Dance Dance Revolution in the arcade, I went out and bought a used PS2 and this bundle. I love it. I like that there's a workout mode that calculates your calories, as well as lessons to get you started. There's also a training mode with a metronome to help you find the beat in songs where it's hard to tell. Before this game I wouldn't let myself buy a game system because I felt like they were just hours of sitting there getting fat.
Summary: I am writing this review as someone completely new to the whole DDR experience. I witnessed this game at a relative's house and thought it looked like fun. My husband is always getting on me for not playing PS2 games with him, so I wanted to give this a try. Mind you, I am in my late 20's with one child, so I am not in prime dancing condition. I was looking for a fun way to workout and blow off some steam.
Summary: This is my first time ever playing ddr. I have read several reviews on how people got into shape playing this game because it was so much fun and addicting. They were right! The only complaint I have about this bundle pack, when I bought it, the salesperson said it came with the eye toy. I was sooo disapointed to find out it didn't.
Summary: I got this game today. It did not cost me much. My brother and I had to pay thirty dollars each. Anyway, I like this game. It's pretty fast. I have not been to weight loss mode yet, but I heard it's cool from the other reviews. Hope you enjoy this toy.
Summary: I play dance games a lot. I own all the console games and think this is one of the better mixes for PS2. I'll go over the pros and cons catagorically... Graphics: The graphics are nice for a PS2 DDR game. However, I have been playing DDR Extreme in the arcades for a couple years now and the graphics are not the same. If you go to Japan, this is the same overall graphics as DDR Festival.
Summary: I have been playing ddr for quite some time now and this game is decent, but it's not as good as max 2. In my opinion it's a step backward. When i turned it on, the first thing i was reminded of is the konamix. The setup is more like the original instead of like the arcade (which ddr max and ddr max 2 follow decently). It has some of the favorite songs with a few good new ones as well, but the songs that you start off with aren't as fun as I had hoped.
Awkward menus and controls, mediocre graphics, fun game.

Summary: Read Sam I Am's review. I thought he was being hypercritical, but after playing the game for a while I found that everything he said was true. The game is fun. The pad is good quality. The controls when you are dancing are great, but there's no way to exit out of a song once it starts. Also the workout IS buggy and sometimes you can't get it to save calories that your burned because you have to reset the machine to exit the current menu. Ugh! Lots of songs.
Summary: Ok, I admit it...I'm 31. I got a ps2 from my OLDER brother just for me to play this game. I LOVE IT! The variety of songs, the ease of the pad use and the different modes to use. Being a total newbie to DDR this suits me just fine. There is one thing I wish they'd change. I don't like when you end game mode or fail, you get sent all the way back to the beginning. Why not just let it go to "retry or quit" instead of having to wait and wait and wait while it loads?
Summary: I just recieved a DDRextreme bundle last night for my birthday and I love it! It is just so much fun to do all the songs, new and old. There are so many modes including lesson and training for beginners.I give this game a 4 out of 5 stars because
