To my fellow x2 speed DDR players.

Summary: So I recently purchased this game and it's fun and all, but it's missing a few things. It's cool that I can use my Wii Pro Controller, but the problem is that I cant change the song speed. See, I grew up playing the DDR games with x2 speed enabled. I know, I know the DDR games are meant to be played at x1 speed, but that's boring as hell and too damn slow for me. I like to change it up by enabling the dance settings to x2 speed.
Summary: So far this game is just okay, the tracks are not licensed and original so it kind of throws me off. Comparing this to DDR3, is impossible for just that reason. It's basically the same with that major exception. I got this to have more songs to dance to, and it serves that purpose. Only 3 stars for this reason, but I knew from reading other reviews that would be the case so i was not surprised. It's still fun and great excersize anyway, and like the variety of music.
Summary: If you're deciding between buying DDR Hottest Party (HP) and DDR Hottest Party 2 (HP2), I highly recommend purchasing Hottest Party 2. I own both and recently purchased HP for additional songs to dance to. Also, it was the only other DDR out there for the Nintendo Wii. In my opinion, HP has a better soundtrack than HP2. It has a lot of contemporary songs and many more fast tracks than HP2. But that's the only positive I really have to say about Hottest Party.
Summary: I use only the workout mode of the game, so my view is limited to that. Also, I own DDR Hottest Party 2, so I have to compare the two. The game's difficulty rating is about half a level harder than DDRHP2. But, there seems to be a fuller range of difficulty for beginners and experts; those in the middle have about the same range as in DDRHP2.
