    Have you played Audiosurf? This game was the Audiosurf of dancing games, years before Audiosurf. Same strength -- you could dance to any song you had! But I remember it having the same weaknesses too -- the step sequences felt generic and often didn't sync up viscerally with the music. Plus, in the PS2 days, uploading your music and waiting for the game to generate levels was a slow and clunky process. Seems like a good example of a game that was a bit ahead of its technological time -- it'd be great to see someone have another go at the concept. But, in the age of DLC, it's probably too much to hope for, right?

    3 points for the gameplay experience and 3 for the ambitious and - at the time - new concept.

    If you like rhythm action games but get bored of their limited and cliched choice of.licensed music, this game is made for you. It works well with most CDs but stumbles on a few, and its a shame there's no online aspect, but you can put in your own dances and swap them with friends who own the same disc, or CDR, so it has great replayability. Every CD you own or get later is effectively an expansion pack for Dance Factory. Expand

  1. I still think a music-customizable rhythm game could be amazing, but Dance Factory falls short of the ideal. [Jun 2006, p.94]
  2. The game's not perfect by any means, but this is an idea that is long overdue, and I, for one, think it deserves some props. [Jun 2006, p.113]
  3. Fun dance patterns, not great music, make dance games worth playing. It's an interesting idea that doesn't quite work. [Sept. 2006, p.106]
