Buy This Game, 17 Dec 2006
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars
I bought this game just the other day mainly because i was curious as to what a breakdancing game would be like, i actually didn't expect it to be that good because it is aimed at such a niche audience and i thought it would not need to be a good game for people to buy it because it would rely on the game being unique. But i couldn't have been more wrong.
I have waited years for a game like this and i don't think the game could really be much better - really, i'd say this game is probably in the top 2-3 games i've ever played.
The character movements have been captured perfectly, the transitions, moves etc just all look incredibly life-like and the way you achieve moves and combos is very challenging just like in real life - you have to put in some good practice not to crash your moves or miss beats.
There is one thing i can fault regarding this game, and that is that in battles there is a 3 second break when one man exits the floor and the other enters, which would not happen in real life, but thats it, there are no other things i can critisise this game for - its just awesome.
If you have ever breakdanced, been interested in breakdancing, are a breaker, or simply like hiphop music, dancing, or a great, different, challenging game - this is definately for you.
If you don't have any sence of rhythm though, do not buy this game, you must have the ability to hit beats or you will not even be able to keep up simple moves like toprock and six-step, let alone freeze on the breaks and carry out decent transitions.
But basically this game is amazing and you won't be dissapointed, if this game actually appealed to a wider audience it seriously would be up there with pro evo and san andreas.
Buy it. :)
