This review is from: Dancing Stage Hottest Party (Wii) (Video Game)
When I first played Dancing Hottest Stage Party, I found the movements quite hard, which was no doubt down to the fact that it was my first ever go on this type of game. I soon got into it, and it's now one of my favourite games! The dance mat is fun and easy to use, i've had no problems with it.
As previous reviewers have said, the hand controls sometimes don't seem to work, but they can be turned off. I keep them on and just move my hands about as I like! Luckily it doesn't effect your score too much. The songs are mainly dance and pop, and are cover versions. Luckily I am a big fan of this type of music, so that made the game more enjoyable for me.
There are several modes that you can play. To get a feel for the game, I would choose the Free Play mode to start with and use the "Beginner" setting. After you have got used to the dance mat a little, you can move onto the Groove Circuit Mode to take on different challenges and unlock new songs. You will be assigned a song or two for a particular challenge and if you complete the challenge then the song will be unlocked.
The game is great for getting a bit of exercise! I often find myself sweating a little after half an hour or so of jumping around the dance mat. There's even a workout mode where you can set yourself a goal for the amount of calories you wish to burn.
All in all, a very enjoyable game that is ideal for people who enjoy challenges, having fun and for those who like exercise!
