After recently popping up all over the place - thanks to a few odd cameos and numerous sporty spin-offs - the Mario gang has invaded yet another franchise; Konami’s Dance Dance Revolution series.
Even if you're not on intimate terms with Konami's DDR games, you're almost certainly aware of them. You use a 'dance' mat instead of a controller: a large, pressure-sensitive D-pad that rests on the floor to dance on as prompted by the screen. It’s so, so simple; playing Mario Mix makes you jig about like a goofball, a universal body language that needs no translation. And, if you’re hoping to tackle the harder settings of Mario Mix, be warned: the effort of it will turn your insides into human milkshake.
