Summary: This game is great! It's got lively music, fun colors and sets and is addicting! It's got several different modes that enable to you play against the computer or a partner or with a partner, so that together you can beat more difficult stages. The score rating is a bit harsh and inconsistent the higher you get into it, but it's fun to play, so that doesn't really matter!
Good starting point for DDR, better workout than Wii Fit.

Summary: DDR Hottest Party for Wii is my first DDR experience (mostly because the Wii is the first game console I've owned since Intellevision!). Now that I've really gotten into the game, and looked through other forums on DDR, it appears that DDR Hottest Party is a fairly "light" game compared to other DDR titles. I only have my experience with the Hottest Party for Wii to go by, though.
Summary: I'm completely addicted. I wait til everybody in the house has gone to bed, and I turn it on. "IT'S TIME, FOR THE HOTTEST PARTY!". At first, I looked like a brain injury victim trying to dance. Remember in Footloose when Keven Bacon was trying to teach Willard to dance???? I was worse. But, now I am getting A-s on the beginners level. The only thing I hate is, I have to turn the hand markers off every time. I wish there was a way to turn those off and save it.
Summary: I am a mother of 5 and I bought this game for myself, mostly for exercise. I am plus size and this is perfect for me. It counts calories in the workout dance mode, there are challenges, and most of the music is older from the 90s so I know most of it. It is so fun, I can burn 500 calories in 1 hour on beginner/basic mode. Kids also love it, but I use it more than they do.
Summary: It is such a fun way for me to exercise. I have it set to count the calories I burn and that encourages me to keep going. Even though I still get "boo-ed" for my poor rhythm, I love it. Most grandparents would buy this for their grandchildren, but I had to have this one for me.
Summary: Our family loves this game. Our 6 year old can do it and so can I (and I do not dance EVER). We enjoy it together and the girls play it afterschool with their sitters who love it too. Great family fun, good workout and does what the wii was intended to do....promote active video gaming.
Summary: I am new to the Dance Dance Revolution games. We purchased a Wii and I was looking for fun games I would enjoy to play with. I purchased this game, primarily on the strength of reviews I read on Amazon.com. As others have mentioned, there are a few items I feel could have been made better: * Workout mode - It is really the same as the other modes, the only difference is that it calculates calories.
