Summary: For Xbox One, this game kinda stinks. It doesn't really use the Kinect technology in any meaningful way...you just see a very, very, tiny little silhouette of yourself at the top or bottom of the screen. You might as well just have a much-cheaper DVD showing a dancer on your screen, as this program doesn't really provide anything more than that. Unless you like the hokey "rating" it gives you, which is far from a reasonable assessment of your actual dancing.
Excerpt: Lots of fun, bought it for the grandkids, 14 (girl), 12 (boy) & 7 (girl), they are all enjoying it immensely...dancing along, learning moves, getting a workout, All Good! that's what they tell me!
Summary: So much fun! Kinect on the XBox One is far more accurate than on the XBox 360, and this game benefits greatly from the improved performance. The game allows a huge number of simultaneous players, and you can enter and leave as you please. The music selection is great, and there are a lot of additional songs available as well. A great way to workout or just have fun with the kids.

Summary: Total disappointment. I used to have xbox 360 and hip hop dance game. It was million times better than this. The dance was more professional and the avators were more life like and song selections were so much better on the hip hop game. It had 2 dancers one facing on the back one facing front making so easier to practice. I don't even feel like playing with this game anymore. Microsoft, please make the hip hop dance game for Xbox one.
Summary: I really enjoyed the game, very user friendly. Cool backgrounds for songs. However, not much variety to pick from. Kinect really doesn't recognize your body well, I found it very easy to score perfect points while my dog laying in the corner was also recognized by the game as a player and consistently received good points as well :-/ it was really funny at first but if you think about it, kinect recognition was suppose to be perfected, not get worse...
Summary: This review is long overdue. This was a great purchase for our family. I have 2 daughters who are now 3 and 6 (they were 2 and 5 at time of purchase) and they loved it. Obviously the 3 year old mimics only 10% of the moves but she feels like she is playing too and has a great time. They still play with it periodically but there was a good period of about 3-4 months where they played every day. The graphics are cool and the moves are fun. Even the world dance was a hit.
Excerpt: The selections of songs is a bit more broad than the last game. It includes more character based group numbers (Aladdin or Ghostbusters are my favorite so far). The only thing I don't like is I haven't figured out how to change the difficulty for each player like you could in the other games.
