  1. You won’t find a more comprehensive or fun dancing game out there, at least until they release the next DDR.
  2. This is the most well-rounded DDR version yet and with Xbox Live downloadable content coming in the future, its appeal will last even longer.
  3. 87
    While we would have hoped for better multiplayer support and the ability to add your own tunes, DDR Universe is about as complete a dance game as you can make with a ton of upcoming downloadable content and a variety of modes including online play.

The quest mode was amazingly confusing and the package offered absolutly no instructions on this gametype, but it's not impossible to figure out, and once you do, its quite a fun and original game mode. The tracks are awesome, theres no other words for them, Grandolin, Castlevania, Young Man Blues and Drivin' are the standouts for me, you also can't go wrong with big names such as Chris Brown, Depeche Mode, Steppenwolfe and New Order, the soundtrack is the greatest part about this game. The challenge mode is more designed for the expierenced players, because after the first fews levels things get crazy. If you can afford another mat, this is a great multi-player game as well. There is also a good deal of downloable content. This is not neccisarily a "Must Buy" but if your a fan of the series, or you have been interested in the game, this is a great edition to get started on. Full Review »
