Fun, but I think the PS2 version's mat was better.
4 weeks ago
Summary: I have an older Wii (about four years old), so I have the port necessary to use this mat. I ordered the game to encourage physical activity. I had played the PS2 version many times, years ago, and had fond memories of it. The game is still fun, but I find this mat sticky. I like to do DDR barefoot, and my feet stick to the mat. It makes it difficult to do fast songs, because I can't un-stick my feet around fast enough to get to the next arrow!
Summary: I originally bought this game as a potential substitute for working out when I don't have time to make it to the gym. It doesn't provide a very good work out and should be used for fun rather than fitness. It's a tad different than what I remember from 10+ years ago, but still the same game! I think it is a lot of fun and you don't have to be a "good" dancer to play it. This comes with both the game and the dance pad.
Summary: I see a lot of reviews saying this will not work with the newer wii. Yes this is correct. They should put a notice under the title referring to this issue. I did a lot of research trying to find out if it was even possible to make it work. The only solution I found is sold here "Mayflash Nintendo GameCube Controller Adapter". There are a lot of mixed reviews for this adapter.
Summary: This game is far better than the previous DDR release on the Wii (titled "Dance Dance Revolution"). My favorite new feature is the option to play through a full song instead of just an excerpt. I also like that you can now play as one player with 2 dance pads for an extra challenge. The menus are much better this time around, but still not as intuitive as they should be; unfortunately, this makes these games harder for new fans to get into, so I hope they improve this...
Summary: Just bought this a few weeks ago and I love it. For people concerned with mat accessories not being compatible. I own the Mario kart bundle red wii that was bought December of 2011 and I can plug the mat into my wii and it works perfectly. There is a compartment on top of the wii that flips open where you can plug in the cord of the mat..it looks like the cord of a Nintendo game cube controller. Anyway this game is really fun I love DDR!
