Summary: Let me start by saying that I used to LOVE the old DDR game back when it was on Xbox. Great techno music to dance to and fun game modes. THIS game however, exciting dance moves and instead replaces it with the Wii Controller.
Summary: I was very excited to get DDR for the Wii, especially when I learned they incorporated hand motions as well, but was disappointed with the game play and options. The biggest problem is that it is ridiculously unforgiving.
Summary: My daughter and I played this for about a half an hour right after I got it and we found it just ok. It doesn't have anything to do with dancing except for the music. You are not dancing, you are just stepping on arrows and waving your hands when they come up.
Summary: I purchased this as a gift for my wife who wanted it for working out. She's having a hard time with it. The game came with minimal documentation and no instructions, so she's unable to figure out how to use it.
Summary: DDR is great fun!! My kids played it all day for Christmas and even got their aunt, uncle & Papa to get up and dance! Great exercise for us! Unfortunately, the Wii remote controls made it more difficult, so my kids didn't use them--they just danced on the dance pad.
Summary: The game is fun and all but the big downer in my case was that the DDR dance pad started malfunctioning after 6 weeks for fairly light play. Specifically, one of the buttons (A) seems to be stuck and one cannot override by using the corresponding wiimote button.
