Summary: I bought it as a fun and cheap exercises tool (for adults too). I take a week to practice through the beginner level and start burning up calories and feel fun in the basic level. Totally agree that the game is not well written. It takes long time to load and you need to press "A" to go through the meaningless messages. Every time you fail a song, you have to go back and select again and again. Well, I see it as a chance to get water and rest a bit between songs.
Summary: I think this is my 3rd favorite DDR game on xbox 360. I do prefer DDR over kinect... I don't like any of the dances on kinect, so why even bother, this one get's much better exercise out of it.
Summary: My granddaughter (a 5th grader) got this for Christmas, and she loves it! It has good music and moves, and it keeps her busy for a long time. It's a great source of exercise as well as being challenging and fun. The bundle version comes with the dance mat that you need. A great gift and activity for teens and preteens, as well as adults.
Summary: What a fun, awesome game!!!!! It has been played day and night since 12/25/10! Very tiring for me (35), but nothing for my 16 year old cheerleader. Got it for her for Christmas along with an additional mat for 2 player mode (identical to the one that comes with this game bundle). I have read several comments that the mats doesn't work well on thick carpet. Well it works AWESOME on not so thick carpet. We have no problem with sliding, moving, etc.
