Excerpt: dance. It’s not a catch-all term, though, as most of us are about as natural and graceful on the dancefloor as a lump of coal. We all have it in us to learn a few moves, to get by without years and years of training, which is why , like its predecessor, is an absolute marvel to those of us with two left feet, and much less with a few pints in your gut.
Excerpt: Falling in love with somebody that doesn't exist is one of the most soul-crushing feelings in the world. Like when you meet a girl in a dream, and you're totally going to get married and make babies and stuff, and then you wake up. It's torturous. This is very much like what has happened to me with Dance Central 2 and the mesmerising Miss Aubrey. She was in the first game too, but didn't have quite the same impact on me then.
Summary: Parents need to know that Dance Central 2 is the follow-up to one of 2010's most popular Kinect for Xbox 360 games, with a focus on teaching players contemporary dance moves. Some of those moves might be a bit too suggestive for young players -- just as some of the song lyrics will walk the line with parents. More offensive lines (such as those in Lady Gaga "Bad Romance") have been edited out, though.
Conclusion: Even though it's more of a remix than a revolution, Dance Central 2’s improved modes, multiplayer options, and base functionality make it difficult for anyone fond of the first game to pass up. Nimbly straddling the line between technical and accessible, the series continues to be one of the best dancing games out there, if not one of the best games on Kinect period.
Excerpt: The rhythm genre, for the most part, has been over-saturated these past few years. After the sucess of titles like Gitaroo Man, PaRappa the Rapper , and DDR , the market started to flood with Guitar Hero after Guitar Hero iteration, until finally, it imploded , with basically only Harmonix Music Systems remaining. Thankfully, Harmonix kept things fresh with the much needed keyboard instrument, and of course, the Dance Central franchise, which took the country by storm.
Conclusion: Recommended for 8+, simply due to the moves required to get a decent score, even on easy. There are some questionable lyrics but nothing you won’t, or haven’t, heard unbleeped on the radio.
Summary: Dance Central 2 is the best reason to own a Kinect. Dance Central 2 makes substantial improvements over the original, and if you don’t mind the feminine dance routines the game is a lot of fun to play. Dance Central 2 is the most fun while playing multiplayer, so be sure to find some friends willing to bust a groove with you while you play. You won’t regret it. Dance Central 2 is by no means perfect, but it’s easily the best dance game on the market.
Conclusion: Written by me on Gamerheadquarters.com this game is just like the first but with a lot more options. if you need to work on a move, all you have to do is select it instead of playing the whole "Break It Down" routine, very helpful and time saving. also, i got to keep all my songs from DC1 and the new songs are great. also, the voice commands and genius and so very helpful. i like that i can do playlsits and keep track of my workouts.
