Short and sweet review......

I'm a 33 year old bloke, so I make sure I play this either alone, or while being 'crazy' when in mixed company (while insisting in public that it's only something I bring out for a laugh at parties).

I absolutely love the game. I'm a terrible dancer, always have been. I got this game with a bundle, so wasn't expecting anything from it. To say I was was pleasantly surprised is a massive understatement.
I won't go into detail, as other reviewers have done that, but I will say that it's great fun, addictive, great looking and a brilliant workout.
My other half says I look massively camp while dancing away, but I don't care. When it comes to this game I am camp...and proud!

It does everything we hoped the Kinect games would do. Namely be really fun, ingenious, and beat the Wii at it's own game.

If you have a Kinect, it's a must buy.

I'll make this short and sweet... I freakin' love Dance Central, the game was the only reason I bought an XBOX (I'm a woman in my thirties and thought I'd never own an XBOX). I love the Dance Central playlist (hip hop, r&b and dance) and the choreography is very authentic, the stuff of music videos. I originally had a Wii but I wasn't feeling the avatars, playlist and choreography of Just Dance, just wasn't my cup of tea, it had a more universal commercial feel. The animated avatars/characters on Dance Central look great and the dance environments provide a great atmosphere (unlike Just Dance). As much as I loved Dance Central 1, it wasn't perfect!

HOWEVER....

With Dance Central 2 Harmonix fixed every grip I had with Dance Central 1.

TWO PLAYER MODE
Now two players can battle each other simultaneously, with the previous version of Dance Central you had to perform separately and compare scores after the second player had perfomed.

FREESTYLE MODE
Freestyle mode in the middle of the choreography is now optional (for new routines), I personally didn't care for it as I wanted to perform choreographed moves from start to finish without interruption.

WORKOUT MODE
The workout mode has been developed to meet the needs of consumers wanting to use dance central primarily as a fitness tool. DC2 offers continuous songs using playlists so you don't have to stop every few minutes to choose another song/level/dancer (keeping ones heart rate up). Also the ability to switch off free style mode, aids with the quality of the workout.

BREAK IT DOWN MODE
Enables users to learn the choreography step by step outside of the game mode, DC2 now allows players to jump straight to the moves you have problems with.

I've read all the reviews here on Amazon and all good. The reason I still add mine is that I've learned to rather trust reviews from people that are actual users and bought the games, than websites where the reviewers were given the game for free to review. It's not to say we don't have some crazies here on Amazon from time to time, but at least you get a broader point of view from a group of people from different backgrounds. Hope mine helps as well.

What I want to point out from the word go is my rating of this game. The reason being is that I truly, and deeply WANT to give Dance Central 2 a 5-star rating on all accounts, but when I sit down and think about it (or when I'm standing and dancing around) there are a few small quirks that keep bothering me. These are not that crucial to hinder your gaming experience, but are enough to, well from time to time, discourage the average or below average dancer into not playing the game. This part was present already in Dance Central 1, and somehow made its way to Dance Central 2, but now a little more so. Let me explain this part. That some songs are easy, others average and then hard on difficulty, that we all understand. Where the problem is that when you know for a fact you are doing that move 100% correct and Dance Central still does not pick it up. If this were only me, I'll accept it, but amongst my friends we total 8 that have the same problems, at the same moves, with the same songs. As no one expects Kinect to be perfect at this moment, it was the one area I had hoped DC2 would improve on. Unfortunately, from the first "easy" song, DC2 clearly has problems recognizing basic moves, by which I mean "not difficult moves for any person to master".

So first and most important

Its a great game and improved greatly from the first version.
They have included 2 player modes, co-operative and versus which was lacking from the original.
The graphics are improved as well,its easier to identify what you are doing wrong and the moves are explained in a slow mo detail if needed.
They have also added voice recognition, which doesnt work perfectly (maybe its my accent) but is great when it does.

The game is five stars - I remove one for one reason only.
You have to pay 400 MS points to download the songs across from the original.
As you have already paid a considerable amount for the original disk this seems very stingy indeed.

The transfered songs can now be used as two player -which is good, but dont seem to work with the voice recognition at all.

Overall a great fun experience that deserves to sell well -but Microsoft you are a bunch of tight ****s
