I think of myself as being fairly coordinated and fit, but I have struggled with this game. I bought it for my children, and it is too difficult even for me. My 8 year old refuses to do it at all, and it is impossible for the younger ones. Now I am the only one who does it, and even on the 'beginner' settings, usually average a 'C' on most dances (you receive a grade of A-E on each dance with 'A' being the highest).
I wonder if it is just me since the game usually gets such high reviews, but it just doesn't seem intuitive for me. I feel like I need some kind of start up tutorial. There are 2 dances on one setting which seem to offer a bit of instruction, but we just happened into that setting (you don't automatically start the game for the first time that way). After you finish those, the regular dances begin.
Part of the confusing part is that on the beginning you only have a step every few beats, but the avatars are constantly moving.
Perhaps the game does have potential if I can ever figure it out, but in the meantime, I feel like an idiot and have been searching for some kind of user's guide. If you know where I can get tips, please let me know!!
