  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.
  2. The game succeeds, though perhaps not as brilliantly as past iterations. Musical taste is always a subjective criteria, but more objectively it could be argued that SuperNOVA is a case of too many musical cooks spoiling the broth.
  3. It'll be interesting to see where the series goes as it makes its first steps into the next generation, but DDR SuperNova is a great sendoff to the Playstation 2, and should be part of almost any DDR fan's library.

    While SuperNOVA is more of the same idea, it takes everything that made DDR a smash hit and turns up the volume a notch.
  5. As fun and addicting as it ever was. It sports exceptional production values, a lengthy, unique set of songs, and to put the icing on the cake, ravishing online capabilities.
  6. The bad news is that this edition doesn't really do too much new for the DDR series, aside from a nifty planet-cruising mode and a diverse song list. But the good news is that most of the crazy toe-tapping fun that you found in previous games is still present and accounted for, and this is the best the series is going to get for this generation.

    Surprisingly combining depth and simplicity, Konami will really have to up the ante on the next one.
  8. The success of any rhythm game is largely determined by its selection of songs, and Dance Dance Revolution SuperNOVA is the first American release that can compete with its import brethren.
  9. 75
    With its massive song list and skill-based gameplay, Dance Dance Revolution is back and better than ever...Easily -- and by far -- the best game of "smash-the-arrows" in town.
  10. You know if you're going to like this game or not. Go look up the song list. It's well done, and really just a question of whether or not you'd like to add these songs to your collection.
  11. PSM Magazine
    You don't muck much with a winning formula, and the latest Dance Dance Revolution incarnation is another solid entry to the franchise, forcing you to dance with the on-screen arrows until you keel over dead from exhaustion. [Dec. 2006, p.82]
  12. In spite of not being dramatically different, Dance Dance Revolution SuperNOVA is a good game. As they say, it’s got a good beat and you can dance to it. And really, that’s all that matters.
  13. 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.

    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. Full Review »
