    I've been playing DDR for a long while and I have mixed feelings about this new installment. First off, the songlist is decent, but there's no challenge to them. A 12 in DDRX is really like a 9. I know I've seen harder steps. Challenge mode doesn't even cut it until the very end. Shock arrows?! WHERE DID THIS COME FROM?! I rather have our old-school Challenge mode I've been playing DDR for a long while and I have mixed feelings about this new installment.

Shock arrows?! WHERE DID THIS COME FROM?! I rather have our old-school Challenge mode back. Story mode is just flat-out weird. EVERYONE is a dance freak. Everybody knows everybody, so word will get around quick. Like every DDR installment, you have to get through all the episodes to get new songs. The characters improved a whole lot! Many of them really fit them nicely. There are also 3 new characters to play with. And yes, they finally brought back Alice! Another shocker is that there's no point system. Yup, no shop. Everything that you earn, you keep. No more dancing 20-something songs so you can finally buy [insert a really hard song here]! Finally, the two new MCs, Justin and Wii-Dog. I'm sorry, but they're so annoying. You can only shut them up while you're playing a song. Anywhere else and you must endure their stupidity. They do bring some life to DDRX, but try listening to them say, "Yo, these tracks are the dung diggity" or "Nice choice, Governer!" without snickering or laughing. It's stupid. It'll make you say, " I want the old MC back!" So, my judgement: Rent it or just wait until it hits the arcades. Expand

    The song selection for this game includes some very good sounding songs, and while you might not have heard of many of the licenses, most of them are good. The story mode also gets more involved. I disliked the removal of the shop, though, and this is the seventh DDR game in the PS2 series alone that does the same thing to different music. The announcer is also annoying; one of his linesThe song selection for this game includes some very good sounding songs, and while you might not have heard of many of the licenses, most of them are good.

The announcer is also annoying; one of his lines takes several seconds and has actually made me lose some songs. Expand

    Dance Dance Revolution X broadly sidesteps innovation and serves up another entry where enjoyment's purely a function of how much you like the set list. If you own any other DDR games, particularly last year's SuperNOVA 2, it's hard to recommend shelling out cash for this one -- aside from the new tunes, I've seen it all before.
  2. With an impressive song list and up to eight-player LAN capability, this DDR will definitely get the party started!

    DDR SuperNOVA 2 outdoes this title in every way and that's a game that's been on the market for close to a year.
