The revolution is far from over, it seems. For a franchise that took forever to reach our shores, DDR has become one of the most prolific game series in North America, hitting every platform under the sun and getting a generation weaned on videogames up out of their chairs and jumping around like idiots.

But the series doesn't rest on its laurels, generally adding something interesting or at least new each year. Ultramix 4 features most of the play modes you'd expect, from the standard game quest to workout mode (where the game tells you how many calories you're burning and tracks your progress from one play session to the next), to a great selection of 10 different party games and a fantastic video edit mode, where you can splice up available background videos for a particular song for your own, unique presentation.

Just hope you're not prone to seizures or something, because the backgrounds in Ultramix 4 are some of the most glitzy, neon-laden, strobe-filled levels you'll ever see. They're actually very distracting.
