Summary: Prepare to look like Ace Ventura in a tutu and button up shirt with hiking boots unlaced... this actually teaches you how to do the movements, which may make it seem like you are dancing instead of DDR where you are more just stomping to the beat. Likely why konami is going with dance masters now. So far it appears you can be one of two avatars a skinny white girl or skinny black guy. Either way, you have to try to match their movements in time.
Do you Karaoke? DDR? Like to put on a show? This is the game for you. But it's not Dance Central....

Summary: It was with great curiosity and some hesitancy that I picked up this game. All the reviews I had previously read were accurate. So as a recap: *Hyper and not-quite dancing* -Music is very J-Pop/Asian Dance Club/most people won't know it/you should be drinking Red Bull and Lattes. -Dance moves are more akin to someone doing interpretive dance, or doing a routine for a show. You feel like you're a performer, if not *the* performer of the song.
Summary: this game is fun, but i didn't know alot of the songs. when i discovered i had dance MASTERS instead of dance CENTRAL, i bought central and liked it MUCH better! my mistake. it's not a bad game but you get more for your $ with CENTRAL.
