Summary: As a DDR Fan for 7 years, Konami has paid off the work that they have been doing for the wii. Back in 2007, they made Hottest Party, which wasn't that good. In 2008, Hottest Party 2 was decent. In 2009, Hottest Party 3 was better than both games, but with worse DDR Charts (with a few exceptions). In 2010, although I didn't buy DanceDanceRevolution, I heard various reviews. Now, it comes to 2011, when DanceDanceRevolution II was released.
Summary: First of all, I just want to say this: I am new to Dancedancerevolution games. Honestly, I had just wanted a fun game and D.D.R. looked like a lot of fun so I picked it up. I was SUPER happy with it. I love that there are so many choices for basic gameply. I had just assumed that the mat would be used at all times during gameplay, but I was delighted to find that there were, in fact, three different ways to play.
Summary: To be totally honest, this is the first Wii DDR I ever liked. The hottest dance party seemed as if Ninteno forced Konami to use the Wii remote. I hate using the Wii remote when I am dancing because it usually is too easy, too much motion and not enough DDR which was true of all Hottest Dance Party games. This one finally gives the user a choice. Needless to say I have yet to use the choreograph mode because I am a true fan of DDR.
Summary: This is the first DDR I have ever played and I was instantly hooked. The first day I had it I played for 3 hours. The music tracks are pretty good (excluding maybe two) to dance to. The game is easy to learn, but difficult to master providing a nice challenge. It also works great as an aerobic exercise that compliments my regular gym workout. If you want an addictive and active game buy this!!
Summary: I just got this and I LOVE it! I played for an hour and a half before I was too tired to go on. You get to get your arms involved instead of it just concentrating on your legs. It's addicting to keep trying to unlock new content. $70 for a video game that gets your heart pumping vs several thousand dollars in exercise equipment or gym memberships. I love it!
Summary: For Konami, 11 years has really paid off! I dreamed this day would come for them, and I'm so proud for their effort to put into this game. I can't wait to play this game! It's got everything I wanted in a DDR game (personally, I like the Mii support feature in it! Yay!) ! If you're a DDR fan like me, you'll love this game and everything it has to offer!!
