Summary: HOW TO PLAY: Dancing "gumbies" constantly flow down 4 differently colored parts of the screen. Walk left or right to position yourself, perform the dance move, then move on to the next position and perform another move. You will not be performing a cohesive dance routine; instead, you'll be performing mostly random moves to each song. Sometimes you'll get a move specific to a song, but it's rare. The game is fun with a group and it provides a great workout.
Summary: Other than a good song selection, I'm really disappointed. Slow loading times, boring dance sequence, the Kinect loses you frequently, and if you miss a move you hear "Boo". Get Dance Central instead.
Summary: If you like dance games, buy Dance Central, period. Forgo Dance Paradise. I'd rate Dance Central 10 out of 10, while Dance Paradise at 3 out of 10. Why? Alot of reasons...1. inferior menu interface, very crude, bare bones.... 2. very slow loading the song/dance you select...3. no area where you can first learn the choreo for a specific song...4.
Summary: I own Dance Central (and several other Kinect games) as well as purchasing this game from Amazon on its release date. My friends all love playing Dance Central, its only weaknesses being (in my opinion) the track list and lack of additional songs on Xbox Live. Enter Dance Paradise, a game that's had three months to improve on the quality of games released at Kinect launch.
Summary: I purchased this game when i purchased my kinect sensor and this game is horrible. When i was making the moves it would boo me and say that i missed the moves although i was doing each move correctly and sometimes a question mark would pop up on the screen. The dance moves are for a two year old they are slow and boring and not at all what i expected. The song selection is good. I am completely not satisfied with this game it definately needs improvement.
Frustrating, but might be fun on parties n with friends!

Summary: I got this game last night. I played for 30min, and I leave for NY today so I am just giving a preliminary preview. I will update once I'm back and play it more! I played about 5 different songs! The movement detection is not good at all. It kept telling me that I'm missing moves when I was actually doing them, my avatar would stand still.. and sometimes I didn't yet shift from one move to the other when my avatar already had started doing the next move for me!
