Dance Central


$49.00 Released November, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Great song choices. Something for everybody. Very fun. Rock band is to drums, guitar, singing as this game is to dancing. Great exercise.

The Cons:More songs included with the game would make it even better. Only one player can dance at a time. CG characters are lame.

Dance Central is a dancing game designed to work with the Kinect camera tool for the Xbox 360. The interaction resembles what is found with Zumba Fitness, but the emphasis is more on gameplay than on fitness.

This could be considered a simplified version of Dance Masters, which has more layers of complexity. Gameplay involves the camera tracking the body's entire movement set, and rating accuracy in time with the music. Learning individual dance moves can be done in Break It Down mode, and a step-by-step instruction mode teaches complete dances for each song. Beginner and expert modes are available. The soundtrack includes modern hits from pop, hip-hop and R&B artists.

    Erik: Agreed. It is amazingly fun. It's good enough to buy a Kinect for this game alone. Nov 25, 10
