PS2 Review - 'DanceDanceRevolution X'
1 November 2008
Summary: DanceDanceRevolution X celebrates the franchise's 10th anniversary, offering fans new characters, an original soundtrack, enhanced graphics, interactive gameplay, and innovative new game modes such as the brand new 8-player LAN Battle Mode
Excerpt: Slipping out another Boom Boom Dollar. I proudly live up to the Chinese American geek stereotype: I once was the president of the DDR Club at my university. I have played Dance Dance Revolution since 2nd Mix at the arcades, I have competed in an official DDR competition, and my specialty is improvisational freestyling – creating steps on the fly to arrows I either haven’t seen before or don't remember.
Pros: Shock arrows, Well-rounded track list, Music videos and animated backgrounds, Deplorable Street Master mode, Announcer is a poser, Same old, same old
Excerpt: Dance Dance Revolution has been around for ten full years now, at least if you count Japan only releases in the beginning. To celebrate the world revolution that they started a decade ago to create addicts out of many of us, Konami has released Dance Dance Revolution X (X of course as in the Roman numeral for ten). The characters you can choose to play as have gotten quite a makeover. They look much more anime than they used to.
Summary: Parents need to know that this is part of Konami's popular Dance Dance Revolution series, which encourages kids to get up and dance and even features a Workout mode to track calories burned. Although there's no online component, up to eight players can connect over a local-area network (LAN) for multiplayer play. There are some very mild lyrics and references to alcohol (having drinks at a club), and some of the dancers' outfits could be considered a little skimpy.
