  • Summary: In addition to including features from the previous game, PS2 gamers will now have the opportunity to participate in exciting head-to-head DDR online competitions for the first time ever. The 100 top scorers will be recognized through an interactive ranking system, letting novice players test their dancing mettle against top-notch DDR experts. Players can also go online to access new challenge missions which will be refreshed periodically, allowing players a way to continually expand the DDR gaming experience. Whether players are looking to dance to the hottest tracks in town, choreograph, edit and create their own dance steps, or use the ‘Work Out’ mode to burn off excess pounds, DDR Extreme 2 will offer players of all ages an interactive and fun way to get up and groove. The game’s support for the EyeToy Camera continues to add depth and dimension to the gameplay. While using the camera, players can access fast-paced mini games and use both their hands and feet while dancing and watching themselves on TV. Keeping players on the dance mat is more than 100 minutes of energetic dance music, including exclusively-licensed dance hits as well as smash-hit songs, such as "Genie In A Bottle" and "Oops!...I Did It Again." Also adding to the impressive line-up of songs is new music by the famous video game musician Yuzo Koshiro, whose credits include composing music for hit games such as Streets of Rage series, Revenge of Shinobi and Shenmue.

    Quite arguably one of the best Dance Dance titles to be released on the PS2.
  2. If you're currently, or ever have been a fan of Konami’s Dance Dance line of games, DDR Extreme 2 is a must have title that will keep you dancing for many nights to come.
  3. As with most of these dancing games you either “get” it or you don’t. For those that do, you won’t find a more comprehensive or fun dancing game out there.
  4. Dance Dance Revolution Extreme 2 doesn’t do anything new or “revolutionary”. It’s still a solid game that diehards of the series will eat up, but for those looking for some added spice will be left wanting until Konami ships out the next one.
  5. DDR Extreme 2 makes some great strides to attract new players to the same old franchise.
  6. While there is not much new to offer to the genre, it is something to pick up if you enjoy the rest of the series.
  7. 60
    Nothing terribly new and exciting, just another solid entry into Konami's dancing series.

    The songs stay in my head for weeks after playing. I play this game everyday. Every minute I play is pure music fun. And even better, I have a DDR drum pad to play the game with, which puts an entirely new and fun spin on the game. Without quiestion, the best DDR game out there today! Buy now or forever live in shame! Expand

    I love the new DDR Extreme 2. To me its better that Pump It Up. It has great songs, in my opinion. I love the new Workout Mode where you have separate game play as opposed to DDR Extreme , which calculated your total calories during regular game play. Expand

    Significant improvement over DDRX, but the arcane unlocking system and subpar workout mode keeps it from being great.
