  1. DDR Hottest Party is the quintessential game in the series. . It gives you quite a workout, and the new features are truly new and make it worth a purchase. Don’t miss this one.

    Fans of dancing games won't be disappointed. [June 2008, p.74]
  3. Not only is Dance Dance Revolution: Hottest Party the first traditional DDR game to hit a Nintendo platform, it also may be the best version on any platform yet. It's incredibly refreshing to see a new incarnation of this game have such a great set of new modes to go along with the tried and true.

    Dancing Stage Hottest Party has some nice handtricks, special arrows and amusing discohits. Too bad the game modes are a bit on the slim side. [May 2008]

    Dance Dance Revolution has been luring gamers off their sofas for years, making the franchise a perfect hit for Wii fans. [Nov 2007, p.105]
  6. While the game keeps its proverbial foot-tapping format, players must also wave their arms using the remote and nunchuk. New gimmick icons also enhance the gameplay, particularly the frozen arrows (which require two successful foot stomps) and confusion blocks.
  7. I think it had some great additions, but the grading was discouraging because it seemed to be a little harsh.
  8. As a Nintendo gamer I am glad that this Nintendo system has earned itself a ‘true’ Dance Dance Revolution game, even if I was a bit disappointed with the Wii specific controls which I disable every time I turn the game back on (I am not sure why the game was designed to not save that setting).
  9. Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party is a solid entry in the series and a great place for the uninitiated to jump in.

    I loved playing this with my stepdaughter. Getting the kids up out of their seats is getting harder as so much is going on online and inI loved playing this with my stepdaughter. Getting the kids up out of their seats is getting harder as so much is going on online and in computer games- the Wii was the perfect solution. The music is fun because it's popular and the dance moves are pretty good (I dance a Lot!). Full Review »

    I play this game with my half-sister which is quite fun but we dont have dance pads which makes it quite bad. Theres this one song which iI play this game with my half-sister which is quite fun but we dont have dance pads which makes it quite bad. Theres this one song which i like but i dont know it. I tried to find it online but just kept getting errors. Anyone know where it is? I find the menus a bit too pretentious at times but some of the loading screens give a glorious visual distraction from the colour explosions in game. The characters are lifeless and yelping which at first i found annoying but later grew to appreciate. (After all the designers were trying to give a gritty commentary on the current rich-poor divide in east china). The wii console is an impressive bit of kit but they really need to change the name if they really want to make a dent in the electronic game market. After all with Sony's Move and the Sega Dreamcast coming out soon how will they cope? The song choice is admirable at best with some songs relying too heavily on the verse-chorus-verse dynamic which has worked well in the past. I cant dance but I feel like I can. (Am I just dancing inside?) I think come christmas time this will be in peoples end of year lists and hopefully some stockings too.

    Sorry for my bad spelign but this is my first time on MegaCritik
