Summary: If you are used to the regular wii DDR game then this game is going to seem too easy for you. I had just gotten used to the symbols on the other game and accustomed to multi-tasking with my arms and legs but you don't have to work so hard with this game. I also found it a little confusing that the symbols are basically the same when they want you to use your hands as when they want you to use your legs and the dancers on the screen don't appear to be doing the moves that...
Summary: I was ready to return this. I read the manual and all the little papers that were packed with the game. I have studied ballet and jazz for more years than probably most of you have been alive. How hard could it be.... I thought I would jump into a simple dance. Mistake, nothing seemed to work, I had no points. OK so there is "DDR school". I will just start off with lesson one and keep doing it until I get the hang of it. But this is not WII fit plus which is so clear.
Summary: This is our first DDR game in our family. After all its hype and popularity, I am disappointed. All it is is a good idea -- not a well made game. I am very surprised that Konami hasn't gotten serious competition from another game maker because there are so many obvious improvements that it NEEDS. * Wii's are owned by families (multiple users). This game only saves one game. It only stores one point total, one set of best scores for dances, etc.
Summary: I gave this to my wife for Christmas. When she when to hook it up, we realized that the mat has a cord. I guess we should have thought of this, we have a wireless sensor bar, Wii remotes, etc. and our Wii is in a closet with our other home theater components. The only way she can play it is with the rather short cord run out the door of the closet in the back of the room.
Summary: I received the DDR3 game and dance mat bundle. Firstly the instruction booklet was all in German and ONLY in German ! OK, so I can work around this as the manual is almost certainly available online. But secondly, the dance mat had the old Nintendo Game Cube plug on the end of the lead. Recent versions of the Wii controller (the "Family Edition" designed to sit horizontally) do not have the four Game Cube sockets under a door on the side.
