  1. The first game that offers an honest-to-goodness single-player experience that uses the tried-and-true gameplay from almost a decade of games to reinvigorate dancing solo.

    While SuperNOVA is more of the same idea, it takes everything that made DDR a smash hit and turns up the volume a notch.
  3. 80
    Surprisingly combining depth and simplicity, Konami will really have to up the ante on the next one.
  4. There's not a whole lot more to tell in this turgid tale of DDR madness. The new modes may draw in a few extra players that previously haven't tried out these titles, but fans of the series know what they'll be getting in the end.
  5. If you're not a serious DDR fan, then playing any one of the games in the series means you've basically played them all. Still, SuperNOVA is a riot to play against live competitors, and makes a perfect entry point for series newcomers and a must play for any fan.
  6. Basically, Dance Dance Revolution: Supernova is primarily a party game and if you use it in that capacity, I’m sure it will be money well spent. The addition of a robust single player experience also adds a new dimension to the DDR series.
  7. There's the usual workout option and a confusing career mode, but you'd be better off just going to a decent club. [Mar 2007, p.117]

    An entirely enjoyable update to the series. The Stellar Master mode is fun, the song list - while being a bit 'mainstream pop' - is An entirely enjoyable update to the series. The Stellar Master mode is fun, the song list - while being a bit 'mainstream pop' - is passable, and the gameplay is extremely solid. Great game. Expand
