Dance Central 2

Family Friendly Gaming
20 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I have said it before, and I will say it again. We like to check out earlier versions of franchises. Especially when our first exposure to a franchise is on say the third game. Which is why I went out and purchased Dance Central 2. I was curious to see the roots of this Kinect franchise.

  • 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.

Dance Central 2

Destructoid

  • Summary: I'm not a dancer. At all. I dance about as well as you'd expect someone that blogs about games for a living to. That said, recently I've seen more and more of my peers dancing at events and other industry functions, and I've been feeling left behind. Again I've returned to the wall to watch everyone else dance, just like in high school. I recently assumed that last year's hit Kinect title, Dance Central , had something to do with their new moves -- what else could it be?

Review: Dance Central 2

Stick Skills
24 October 2011
  • 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.

  • Summary: Plucking up the courage to hit the dance floor can be difficult, but Dance Central 2 does an excellent job of getting you moving and shaking to some great tunes. Its multiple difficulty levels and in-depth tutorials make things accessible for newcomers, while expertly choreographed routines and some frighteningly technical moves mean even pros can be challenged.
  • Pros: Challenging choreography, Smooth animation makes routines easy to follow, Excellent training mode, Two-player battles are heaps of fun, Wide-ranging tracklist
  • Cons: No online multiplayer

Dance Central 2 Review

  • Summary: While a ton of fun, the first Dance Central game lacked a bit of polish. Now with time and knowledge under their belt, Harmonix comes back hard and fast with a fantastic second installment of their kinect-enabled dance franchise that will knock your little socks off.
  • Pros: Simultaneous two-player dancing, Improved Break It Down mode, Make your own playlists, There's a story now
  • Cons: Figuring out why you're missing moves can still be tough, Free-4-All minigame is hit-or-miss

Dance Central 2

Total Xbox
11 October 2011
  • Excerpt: For the next iteration of their hit franchise, Harmonix could have just released another 30-plus songs and some minor tweaks — the sophistication of their user interface and gameplay would’ve still trumped their Kinect competitors’. Instead, in Dance Central 2, they’ve not only overhauled everything and added new features, but also blended it all together to form a genre-defining package that offers incredible flexibility, a plethora of options, and true game-like feel.
  • Pros: + Smooth, seamless solo/co-op experience; extremely entertaining Versus mode; much-improved Break It Down mode., + Tons of songs spanning greater breadth, difficulty, and fluidity., + A welcome, challenging, and satisfying career mode.
  • Cons: ? Will anyone ever have a shot with Miss Aubrey? Hang in there, Angel.

  • 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.
