  1. The replayability of Ultramix 2 is immense, with content downloads and Xbox Live player.
  2. Boasting an impressive amount of tunes to dance to, modes to play around with, and online and offline goodies to dig into, it's clearly the choice for dancing fans this holiday season.

    So while it's a great effort, it's not significantly, startlingly new by any means.
  4. Graphically, DDR Ultramix 2 is the best looking DDR game yet, with very cool looking menus that help personify the intensity of the title, and dancing backdrops with live captures, crazy psychedelic patterns and shapes interchanging, and nicely created cel-shaded dancers representing you.
  5. If you're already on the booty-shakin'-wagon, all the Live options make it worth a spin. [Holiday 2004, p.68]
  6. While it's fun, this is really just more of the same. [Dec 2004, p.183]
  7. The slow tracks still outnumber the fast ones; here's hoping the downloadable packages include a few more peppy songs. [Dec 2004, p.132]

    Another solid ddr, but it seems more difficult this time - maybe a little too much so. Worth owning though I think.

    Unforgivable slowdown and framerates mar what's quite possibly the best collection of music and steps for a DDR game ever.

    Since 1999 and its debut for the PS1, it has gotten better and better, and now---shame shame shame. This game SUCKS beyond any other DDR game Since 1999 and its debut for the PS1, it has gotten better and better, and now---shame shame shame. This game SUCKS beyond any other DDR game I've ever seen. It's even worse than Disney Mix! Shame shame, Konami. Ultramix 3 better be a lot better than this. This was one big fat waste of 40 dollars that could have been spent better. Buy DDRMAX2 instead, or if you give up on DDR, try Ratcht and Clank 3: Up Your Arsenal. Now THAT's worth talkin' about. Expand
