Dance Dance Revolution SuperNOVA 2 review

What it lacks in innovation, it makes up for in enjoyment

For

  • More than 70 songs
  • Dancin' like a mad fool
  • Great party game

Against

  • Most J-pop songs are locked at the start
  • No innovation
  • Music videos aren't synced with music

Guitar Hero and Rock Band may be all the rage these days, but the music genre owes its heart and soul to the granddaddy of them all, Dance Dance Revolution. The latest incarnation of Konami's foot-tapping franchise doesn't really bring anything blazingly new to the table but what it does, it does well and there's more than enough here to keep fans, both old and new, busy for hours.

The concept behind DDR is simple. Music plays. Arrows move up the screen. You hop around like a dancing fool trying to step on the corresponding arrows in sync with the beat. Do it well, and move on to the next level. Do poorly and you'll be booed off stage. Although some advanced players are elevated the game to performance art (if you don't believe us just take a gander at YouTube), a big part of the fun is playing the game with friends and knowing that you're all going to look dumb. Yes, it's a hit at parties.
