  1. C’mon folks, it’s DDR. If you’ve got the slightest interest in dancing to the beat on your Xbox 360, this is the way to go.
  2. It’s not new, it’s not innovative, but hey – it still works.
  3. Generally a polished and highly playable rhythm title that delivers in spades when it comes to play modes and options. We just can't help but feel like that titular revolutionary spark has faded in recent iterations.
  4. It's just like last year's game, but with very few changes.

    But like its contemporary cousin Guitar Hero, it creates a beautiful illusion from physical interactivity, well-chosen music, and pop-cultural style. Despite the pronounced lack of innovation, DDR Universe 2 shows us that getting lost in a stream of arrows to rump-shaking club tunes is still captivating.
  6. For DDR newcomers, then, Universe 2 is the complete and definitive package. Longtime fans, on the other hand, will be left wondering how so little extra content can justify so full a price tag.
  7. When it comes right to down it, DanceDanceRevolution: Universe 2 is the type of game that only series fans will love. If your idea of a fun evening is laying down a dance pad and stomping around until the downstairs neighbors call the cops, then this title is right up your alley. However, if you are not, nor have you ever been a professional dancer, there's very little here to make this title worth your time.
  8. 57
    The stake through the heart of Dance Dance Revolution Universe 2 is its refusal to adapt new gameplay mechanics or inventive modes. We’ve been playing the same DDR for the last ten years and it’s high time that gamers stood up and demanded an overhaul of the formula.
  9. If you like Dancing games then this does what it says on the box, however you would probably be saving your cash and going off down to the arcade instead.
  10. The Bemani series is like a vampire that just won't die. However much Konami drives a stake through its heart with extremely poor graphics and un-original gameplay, which literally bleed it dry.
