Summary: New DDR songs to dance too, which is always a good thing. The load times thought... whyyyyyyyy??? If DDR can loads quickly on my old PS1 and PS2, why does it take 10 seconds to load a song with the same old visual styles on a modern console like the Xbox 360? Still fun with a good song selection allowing you to get past the American songs and the more technical challenging songs for experienced dancers.
Summary: This applies to the entire DDR games designed for the Xbox and 360. Crappy versions of the popular dance franchise developed for a Westernized audience who wants a break from playing first person shooters. This game tries to be clever by putting in a few Japanese licensed songs to spice up its weeaboo cred with people who can't afford to import it feels like instead some poor bastard's Stepmania (crap) song list.
Summary: Additionally the play lists aren't as diverse, at least not from what I've played & unlocked. The original DDR games featured classic disco tunes, modern hip hop & pop, the best of the electronica world, some fun ethnic-inspired tunes, and a bunch of random Asian techno acts for an eclectic but balanced mix.
Summary: I am new to this kind of games, so I am still getting used to it. But this sure is an addictive way to get exercise. The only problem I've had has been with the mat which tends to slip & bunch up a great deal on our thick carpet. After experimenting with a slip-proof pad for a throw rug & two-sided carpet tape (not much help) I hit on the idea of putting a chairmat (like those used under a rolling office chair) under the mat.
