Excerpt: I don’t know where to begin. Maybe a few jokes about King Harold having his eye put out by a flying arrow’ Maybe something about Damon Hill’s old Arrows not being as quick as the ones in Dancing Stage MegaMix ‘ Nope. I’m not Jimmy Tarbuck, or Bob Monkhouse for that matter.
Excerpt: The first dance outing for PlayStation 2, Dancing Stage is a fairly straightforward tale of up, down, left and right. Arrow points up, you press up, either on the joypad or the dancing mat you cannily bought to accompany your secret camp shame.
Conclusion: Choice of music aside, Dancing Stage Megamix offers little new. But if you have a PS2 and fancy a game that will get the party going and the ladies interested, then this is the one that you want.
Conclusion: As if all this wasn't testing enough, they also include an 'Expert' mode! We should of course, mention the fact that we reviewed this game playing it in the proper way, (with our Logic 3 Dance Mat).
Pros: Some new tunes for the best dancing game out there., There aren't enough dance mat games around and exercising while you play a PS2 game must be a good thing.
Cons: There isn't really enough new stuff to make the game a 'must buy'.
Summary: Dancing Stage Megamix is a great, beautifully presented game, which could have been so much more if only it had more songs. Again the PAL territories have been given a cut-back version of the better US and Japanese versions, so fans might be better off looking offshore for a more concise DDR game.
Conclusion: Overall, this release is a case of 'more of the same', or possibly more accurately 'less of the same'. It's pointless trying to pretend that this isn’t a vaguely fun exercise because its incredible popularity and associated sales figures will prove us hopelessly wrong.
Summary: Konami kommer göra ett seriöst försök att lansera det här som årets julklapp och det är ingen dum idé. Att spela ett tv-spel med hjälp av en dansmatta har alla förutsättningar att inte bara tilltala de av oss gamers som har en viss fallenhet för att svänga på höfterna.
