  1. I can’t dance… no seriously, I can’t. That said, I have a lot of friend who love to go to clubs and love dancing. So I figured what the heck, I will give it a try.This game ROCKS! It is one of the funnest games I have ever played. Let me break it down for you.PROS:1) Anyone can play. The game teaches you the dance moves. Then it gives you some practice trys. Then you get to “Perform”.2) The game gives really good feedback. When you miss a move, it shows you which part of your body wasn’t moving right by outlining it in red.3) The tracks are pretty good. There is a lot of music you would hear at clubs today and some that you haven’t heard for a while.4) The sound and visuals are pretty cool. I thought I would get bored listening to track during practice, but you really don’t because you are concentrating on what is happening on screen.5) Watching your friends play this is AWESOME. If they are good dancers (particularly hip-hop) it is a great way for them to perform. If they are not good dancers… well it is fun to watch them pretend.CONS:1) You are going to need a lot of space. That should go without saying (this is a dance game).2) Don’t let your friends record you playing this game and then post it on youtube.If you have a Kinect, you must buy this game.

  2. I debated on this one . . . I can’t dance, I’m a total klutz and I have injuries in my back and lower body. But the price was right and I went for it. I’m glad I did. It is the most fun Kinect game I have ever bought! I’m having a blast, losing weight AND learning how to dance. The songs may not be everyone’s favorite, so far I like the few I’ve played but you are not buying this just for the music. The purpose of this game is to get you moving. Even if you think the songs stink, you almost don’t pay attention because you are trying so hard to learn the moves. There are 3 levels – Easy, Medium and Hard. I’ve started at the Easy level. As you progress the other levels are unlocked. The songs are also laid out with dance style difficulty displayed – the songs near the top of the list are easiest to learn and they get progressively harder as you go down the list. All the different levels make this game triple the size. If you are not an experienced dancer, you can easily play this for a year before you’ve reached all levels.The Kinect does a good job of following your moves. It missed a few of mine but that is to be expected; nothing is perfect. The fun factor is here but the exercise factor is off the charts. I played this for 1 hour and I had sweat pouring off me – literally! I have used workout DVDs that didn’t make me sweat this much. If you have a bad heart you can still play this game but I would start on the easiest level and don’t over do it. You may only be able to do a handful of songs on the game but for $16 that’s not bad. (Talk to your doctor as well.) If you need to lose weight this is a great game. I also mentioned I have a bad back; I’m able to play but some moves do cause a little discomfort. Listen to your body and do the best you can. I think some of the moves are actually helping my back. There is a lot of hip action and this loosens the back muscles.This game isn’t just for kids. I’m over 40 and had a blast. I highly, highly recommend this game.

  3. I like the game but I have to say my expectations where too high. I’m not even sure what I was expecting but I can say that it was not what I got. Not that its a bad thing cause the game is still fun just thought it would be different.I do however like that it has different levels from easy, med, hard. Though you will not be able to go straight to hard on some of them (not sure about all) without having to master the easy then unlock the harder ones.The variety of music in my personal opinion sucked! I knew most of the songs and still wondered why the HECK would they even put them on there when there are CLEARLY better ones out there. So with that said I don’t play the songs I don’t care for, this would not seem so much of a problem but… a majority of them for me suck and there for I don’t get the full experience. (This is my fault, I should have looked into the song choice BEFORE purchasing). But I would rather it be out there so you can look into this yourself.Another thing I had hated was that if you don’t know the move and your trying to learn the steps the guy talking to you will tell you, you have 3 times to get it right and even when your going through some of the motions and get it right and sometimes when you don’t, it will still drag on until you get it correct. Other times it will just give up on you and move on to the next move. Annoying much? YES! This defeats the purpose of learning it? How does it expect you to learn them?Then there is the the “dance battle” where you and someone can battle it out and see who wins. This is fun. But this is the only time that a second player can enter the game, and even so you have to switch and take turns so you can’t actually do anything side by side.You can also rank up and earn gold stars in each level of songs. There is a feature for exercising too that you can turn on and see how of a work out your actually getting. This was a cool feature.This game would be easier to learn dance moves than say (Black Eyed Peas Experience)This one it lets you learn at a slower pace. Though the moves are more basic and you do have to hit this more spot on than (BEP Experience). So you have to keep that in hand when you purchase stuff like this since its all sort of a give and take, learn and go type thing. Basically its like this- If your a good dancer and are doing the moves flawless the sensor will not pick it up. If you go with the flow and are just more or less goofing off then it works better. This is only MY opinion though.There is so much more to this but I pointed out the things that I wanted to say. I do NOT regret purchasing the game. Me and my family can laugh at each other attempting to dance and get a very mini work out too.
