    So i bought Kinect with Kinect Sports and DAnce Central.
    Firt i played Kinect Sports and it was horrible. It was like 2006 i started playing Wii and back than it was something new.
    The firt try was great, amazing and fun. Now with Kinect it was a pain in my ass when i tried boxing, soccer and the other sports. Okay i was shocked first but i said to myself: Not so bad maybe Dance Central

    I started Dance Central and i was shocked. Again some very poor rehash from a Wiigame with a few better graphics and awfull control. So i bought Kinect for 150 bucks with a game for 200 to get a god damn copy of a system i allready have.

    Who put this together???!!! Obviously not a dancer who knows how to teach!
    This is SO about making money. Anyone who has danced knows you have to give basics especially to non-dancers; 1. count out the moves: 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and... and must show more than 2 or 3 actual steps when showing the move initially, and more than once before going into it.
    2. state how many moves there

    2. state how many moves there are and in what sequence; i.e. Evacuate the Dance Floor: 8 ganks, 8 smush, 8 tap fronts, 6 double p e's, etc.???? There is NOTHING to guide one as to how many of each step to do and in what sequence to do them in.
    And the "performance" cannot be slowed down to get that information. Obviously the people who put this together were only interested in getting it out for the $$$, not teaching which is a real shame. Would be really confusing for anyone who doesn't know how to dance, learn steps and do a full routine.

    Dance Central is a lot of fun, and it'll make you appreciate dancing more, but the lack of worthwhile multiplayer is very disappointing.

    If you have a Kinect and are looking for a fantastic party game, don't hesitate to pick up Dance Central and start shaking your booty!

    In the end, Dance Central is definitely the best dance game on the Kinect and really showcases the Kinect quite well.
