Conclusion: DanceDance Revolution is a fun game that will keep you coming back. It’s awesome track list of licensed music and more than fifty original tracks make this game a must-have for DDR enthusiasts and newcomers. Are you ready to Dance?
Conclusion: There’s tons of fun to be had within the confines of the ninety-dollar price tag that DDR: Universe carries. If you can pony up the cash and purchase that shiny new, Xbox 360, dance mat, then you’ll be in store for hours upon hours of dancing fun. There may be some presentational issues that need to be ironed out, and the quest mode feels like an unneeded addition, but for the most part Universe belongs among the dancing elite.
Excerpt: Need to get fit... Went out and bought an Xbox 360 before the Wii came out... Look no further! Konami's back with a new Dancing Stage title - the first to get a release on Microsoft's console. If you've never played before, the format's simple: roll out your dance mat, stand on it, if an arrow tells you your foot goes left, your foot goes left, if it tells you to go right, it goes right. Before you know it, you're dancing!
Xbox 360 Review - 'Dance Dance Revolution Universe'
8 October 2007
Summary: Dance Dance Revolution Universe takes dancing to a whole new level offering features and options not possible until now, designing a game that everyone can play and enjoy, including anyone with two left feet.
Excerpt: From "Rapper's Delight" to "Run It," DDR Universe has tracks to surely delight a vast audience. For some people, they've been waiting for a 360 DDR game to come out for a while. How well does this new mix measure up to the older Xbox and PS2 versions? A mixed bag of reactions sounds appropriate. In terms of music, there are only a handful of songs to survive the transition into the new game. "Ignition," "Put Your Faith In Me," and "B4U" are a few examples.
Excerpt: There was a time not too long ago when the music genre was an oddity in the United States; when the mere existence of a game like Dance Dance Revolution Universe was so unique that you almost felt you had to check it out. And fans of the series? They were just happy to be able to play DDR without having to install warranty-voiding mod chips in their PlayStations. Oh, those were simpler times, but not necessarily better. Gladly, those days are over.
Conclusion: In the end, I did want to see a bit more from Dance Dance Revolution Universe to really take it to the real next level. In a lot of ways Konami continues to improve things in this game, however a big part of me suggests that although this is a solid game there is only more great ones to come.
Excerpt: Fans of Konami's Dance Dance Revolution series have learned to expect a few things. But after buying yearly releases of their favorite rhythm dancing game and investing hundreds of dollars in costly dance pad accessories, the time has come to start the process all over again on a new console. Ready or not, here comes Dance Dance Revolution Universe for the Xbox 360.
