  1. You won’t find a more comprehensive or fun dancing game out there, at least until they release the next DDR.
  2. There may be some presentational issues that need to be ironed out, and the quest mode feels like an unneeded addition, but for the most part Universe belongs among the dancing elite.
  3. Even though it doesn't attempt to evolve the series any further, Dance Dance Revolution Universe is a fantastic game with more visual pizzazz and replay value than any DDR before it.
  4. It's unusual and unfortunate that the inaugural DDR on the 360 fails to implement the coolest thing that's happened in dance games recently – inputting and grooving to your own tracks.
  5. DDR Universe offers the standard sorts of changes and upgrades you'd expect from this nearly decade-old series.
  6. 70
    While Universe doesn't do anything to reinvent the wheel (or the dance pad, as the case may be), the game does a great job of bringing the total experience to the next generation of consoles.
  7. 30
    DDR Universe is the gaming equivalent of an alien fetus belching out "The Star-Spangled Banner" -- a disaster of a title that digests any good DDR has given us into one of its many stomachs, producing something so foul that it could power Earth for centuries.
