  1. As far as Dance games go, this is the undisputed winner.
  2. The addition of Xbox Live and the fact that you can play with four players in battle mode means that owners of both PS2 and Xbox should definitely be leaning towards this one.
  3. If you are looking for more popular music you might want to check out "DDR2MAX" for the PS2, but if you are in the mood for some killer techno tunes and house music then Ultramix is the ultimate selection of high-energy dance beats.
  4. It's more like a frenzied full-body execution of the instructions on a binary punchcard, but it's addictive and fun. [Jan 2004, p.83]
  5. This Xbox installment would have benefited from a slightly easier set of songs to make it less difficult for new players to pick up, but, beyond this caveat, it's the most feature-rich version of Dance Dance Revolution ever.
  6. DDR hasn't evolved much since its console debut on PSone, but the graphics, song list, and online options of Ultramix make it the best entry in the series since "DDR: Konamix." [Jan 2004, p.148]
  7. There are no more than a handful of truly danceable tracks. The rest are either slow, boring, or both. [Jan 2004, p.64]

    I've always wanted to try out the DDR machines in the arcades, but it seemed like no one was going to try it, so I never did either ;) I've always wanted to try out the DDR machines in the arcades, but it seemed like no one was going to try it, so I never did either ;) It always looked like a good time though, and man was I glad I picked this up with the included game pad, it's seriously hard to figure out what is happening at first, and then fatique sets in... If you need to get some exercise, and enjoy it, then this game is for you! Graphics are cool...8 Cell shaded anything is always nice :) The songs are mostly techno, with a few other songs to mix in... not terribly great on any account... 8 The fun factor is a 10 though... as it's quite the unique game all around. Also, the included game pad to dance on, is pretty unique, and makes for quite the party toy ;0 Expand
