Product Description

Requires Kinect Sensor - not included

DanceEvolution is an all-new concept where the game responds to real dancing, with Kinect for Xbox 360 demanding players move their body to the beat and position of their bodies against a variety of on screen markers.

DanceEvolution will offer users the ultimate dance club vibe, and boasts the most realistic and exhilarating dancing experience to date. Kinect for Xbox 360 allows players to watch their actions in real time and also save two of their original routines for use as back-up dancers in the game, no controllers required. As players dance in tune to the game's music, they can also take snapshots of their favorite dance poses, save to local albums and share the fun with friends. Utilising Xbox LIVE for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, players can also challenge up to four friends around the world and enhance their experience with dance sequences, theme packs and more.

Featuring 30 tracks spanning club music classics, Hip Hop, R&B, Pop, and Techno, DanceEvolution dancers can groove to their favorite songs. The game also offers three gameplay modes for the ultimate dance experience: Dance, Lesson, and Status. In Dance Mode, users compete to become the 'Dance Master' as they play and unlock their favorite songs and dance along with a friend. Lesson Mode offers a tutorial service, and Status Mode allows players to check their play records and review the titles they have earned. Players can also compete to determine the ultimate dancer with multiple difficulty levels including Light, Standard, Extreme and Stealth.

3.0 out of 5 stars Only DDR & Dancing Stage fans need apply... 11 Dec 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
It's been a while since a game has had me torn so much as Dance Evolution. I have grown up with the DDR / Dancing Stage games from Konami, and this is the latest title in the company's Bemani "rhythm action" franchise. Indeed, this game has been so carefully targeted at the Japanese market that it sadly doesn't quite fit into the Western way of gaming...yet.

The big thing that will put most casual dance game players off is the songlist. While the development team (of which legendary DDR music producer Naoki Maeda was a key member) have tried their best to include a range of styles and flavours in the mix, the big thing that they forgot was to include any songs that a casual player would actually recognise. In fact, every song here is either an original track created by Konami for one of the DDR games, or it is an old Eurobeat song (a hyper dance style which has only ever been commercially successful in Japan). So straight away, people will be left wondering what on Earth they are dancing to. Personally, I adore the songlist as it holds a lot of very fond memories of playing the older DDR arcade machines, but it's important to know that this isn't just another vehicle to promote the Lady Gagas and Black Eyed Peas of this world...

As for the gameplay, I'm sure that most people will compare it to it's biggest rival currently, Dance Central. While that game allows you to employ a gentle learning curve, breaking each routine down bit by bit until you have perfected the moves, Dance Evolution throws you straight in at the deep end with barely even an armband to help you float.

4.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE this game, you'll probably hate it 14 Feb 2012
By randall
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Basically i love this game. But then again you'll probably hate it. The songs are totally japanesed focused, if you werne't a hard core Dance Dance player the concept of this game will probably elude you. People say its just match the shapes on the screen, yes it is on lite mode. Give it time and get to master level and you'll be close to a heart attack.

If you're a fan of super eurobeat music and like your dance routines you'll love this game. no, it doesnt teach you to dance, no the songs arent ones you will ever have heard of, and no it isnt easy.

If you want a fun game to embarrass / injure your drunk friends with on a friday night this is it. play against an opponent instead of one at a time. play over xbox live with a 10 year old japanese girl who will thrash you.

Spend some time, unlock the harder levels and song packs, dont just stand there tyring to match the ripples and shillouttes without doing the whole dance and enjoy being able to watch your previous attemps dancing in the background next time you go on.

Highly recommend this game

5.0 out of 5 stars Best dance game out there 6 May 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've played Just Dance 3. I've tried Dance Central 1 & 2. I've played this one and although I feel there is a big limitation of songs on this game - the dancing just feels "right". Rather than copying static cards - this game actually shows you on screen what to do. So you trace the lines with your hands, hit the bubbles, etc. I love this way of dancing - it's easier to follow than static cards. However, these movements won't really teach you any cool dance moves. You might look a bit special but it's fun and to me, that's what's important.

What might bother people is the music selection. There is Club, R&B, Pop & Para Para. None of them are top hits. I think they were just from Konami's music library but in my opinion they are a lot of fun - I would love it if they used top hits you can dance to but the music isn't bad. There also isn't many of them. There's about 20-25 of them. People who are familiar with Japanese Anime & Manga would recognise the kinda genre that is Para Para. If you usually like Anime intros and outros - then I think you would like this genre.

I also think it's a bit too easy. After about a day of playing on it - I could get A on Extreme on some songs whilst eating an ice cream. But it just shows it's a game for everyone - I have only ever got a AA once.

But overall, great game, highly recommend! Unless you're into all that hip hop top hit stuff. If you're in it for top hits then Dance Central/Just Dance is a way to go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeded my expectations 11 Jan 2014

I've been a fan of the Dance Dance Revolution series for quite some time so I was more than slightly suspicious of this game. However it turned out to be far more fun than I ever expected. Yay \o/

4.0 out of 5 stars You will probably either love it or hate it 12 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
I love it, the picture in picture of you attempting to dance is off-putting/hilarious (delete as appropriate.) More hilarious if you are playing with friends. You can turn it off though which I do if I am playing it on my own. The picture has a time lag also which means it is almost impossible to actually synchronize with the on screen dancers. It does require a lot of practice to learn each dance if you want to get good ratings. Be prepared for low grades for a long time at first as it is pretty unforgiving and expects you to match the moves perfectly. I also own Dance Central 3 and I actually like them both equally, even though a lot of people seem to prefer Dance Central 3. You won't recognize any of the songs unless you are into Japanese pop (which I wasn't until I got this game!) The tempo of all of the songs is pretty fast, so you will definitely get a work out.
