Excerpt: My Dance Central journey is coming to a close. I am so thankful I had the financial resources to purchase the older Dance Central games after receiving Dance Central 3 for review from Harmonix. The review for Dance Central 2 was in Family Friendly Gaming #75. Now it is time to review the game that started it all.
Excerpt: Last year Harmonix released Dance Central for the Kinect with great success and praise from gamers. This year they release Dance Central 2 with new music, moves, and features that will have your inner choreographer dancing to the beat. So after spending the last week with the game and breaking a sweat this is what I think of Dance Central 2.
Conclusion: Dance Central is not perfect, but at its core there is plenty of enthralling entertainment to be found. Harmonic definitely has a Just Dance beater on its hands, and one of the few must-have launch titles for Kinect. If you're planning on picking up the hardware, make sure you grab a copy of this dance-a-thon too.
Excerpt: I was frequenting my local drinking establishment the other week, when an excitable barman began goading us into a corner of the room where a Wii was set up. I frowned and took a generous swig of my drink; I would have put money on the game being either Wii Sports or Mario and Sonic at the Olympics - the only two games that pubs round my neck of the woods seem to own.
Conclusion: The Conclusion -Dance Central is fun game made even better with the fact anyone can jump in and play. There is a fair bit of songs, that will take a bit to master and some fun moves to learn. Even if you don’t do great on songs the experience is just as fun and learning the moves will provide you with hours of fun.
Summary: Dance Central â€™s premise of getting people off of their asses and dancing to the beat isnâ€™t a new one in the world of videogames. Konamiâ€™s had years of success with its Dance Dance Revolution series, but that only gets you moving your feet, and arguably not actual dancing at all.
Summary: Parents need to know that this is a dancing game, not unlike the Dance Dance Revolution titles, which teaches players contemporary dance moves. Some of the music featured has suggestive lyrics and a few have other potentially offensive lines such as "The interior, like suicide wrist red," from Snoop Dogg's "Drop It Like It's Hot." Overall, however, this game is fairly tame as "Teen"-rated titles go.
