Summary: The game arrived in the condition it was promised and played as it was advertised! I like it, but since I usually use workout mode, I don't like how this one has it all combined into one..so I can only do 5 songs before going through everything and starting it over again-- oh well!
Summary: I have played DDR in arcades before, but this is the first time I owned the game for my new (I know, I am very behind) PS2. I like playing, and played without reading the manual. So I got to be pleasantly surprised by lots of things, like new songs appearing and getting an AA rating on beginner mode. I didn't like playing with the eye toy though, that was just weird.
Summary: Even though you can't turn the jumps off, this is still pretty good.Unfortunately you can't use it with all brands of game pads.So far, my Gamestop brand pad worked, but my friend's had a different brand that didn't work with either Extreme 1 or an older demo disk of DDRMax..I liked that you could dance to Culture Club and Duran Duran and other cool songs. This is still a great game to get even if you can't turn off what you don't want.
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.
