Dissapointing to say the least
on 4 December 2013
This was purchased as a bit of entertainment in the home, however I feel it has been poorly put together (as you can clearly see from US reviews of this game). The game tells you when there isn't adequate lighting, so I knew this should work fine (it has on other things like playroom).
Upon starting a song, and quickly have an issue with the game trying to distinguish between the players, a little annoying but with some time we got around it. When you get the song started and start dancing and it becomes apparent very quickly that that game doesn't seem to be scoring you correctly. You can mess up completely and still get a perfect, and when you feel you did something good, get an X for fail. This was tried this with just one person in front of the camera, and had exactly the same problem. I even stood directly in front of the camera for a whole song and didn't move, I got 4 stars for it. Not what I was expecting to say the least.
I don't normally write reviews on Amazon as normally the reviews they already have accurately represented the item being sold, But this time it isn't the case. Obviously there may be some enjoyment to be had at parties etc, but the big fundamental floor that it doesn't seem to accurately track your body movements and is very unreliable ruins what could have been a fun game. Please don't be fooled like me into thinking it would be a good purchase to put your camera to good use, do some research first, you might just save yourself some money.
