  • Summary: Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix 3 allows players to compete online and go head-to-head with other DDR fans from around the globe, talk live to other DDR players as well as download new songs and other content. Ultramix 3 also features never-before-seen offline modes that cater to the casual, beginner and advanced dancers. 'Freestyle Mode' lets newcomers to the series dance to any song without having to follow specific dance steps on the screen. Although players are not beholden to any choreographed moves, the game recognizes their dance patterns and will reward players for completing different step combinations. More seasoned players can enjoy the 'Quest Mode' where they can travel from city to city and build the ultimate dance team by completing challenging songs and routines. The game's 'Jukebox Mode' allows players to enjoy more than 65 upbeat tracks from the game and use them as background music. By serving up the hottest dance tunes, comprised of remixes, dance anthems and popular hits, DDR keeps everyone moving and grooving. DDR also returns with the classic 'Workout Mode,' which gives gamers a method to track the progress of their dance/exercise routines and see how many calories they have burned. Expand

  1. You'll never catch me playing this game in the arcades but having DDR on my Xbox ready to humiliate myself in the privacy of my own home is undeniable fun.
  2. If you don't care as much about getting really into the dancing however, the basic pad is just fine.
  3. A splendid dancing game although the new hit songs mostly suck and some the other songs have been recycled over and over again. Plus there are not that many new ideas compared to Unleashed 2. [Apr 2006]
  4. If you're still charmed in the slightest by the Dance Dance Revolution franchise, then Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix 3 will likely put a big grin on your face, and if you're anything like me, it'll complement those unstylish dance moves just fine.
  5. Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix 3 incorporates a bunch of new modes and switches up the songlist, but for many less-than-expert players will seem a little too similar to previous games.
  6. A bigger pad would help in the future.The other problem is the selection of game modes to choose from.
  7. 60
    This is certainly a solid addition to the series, but overall it's hardly worth upgrading from the previous outing.

    Exaclty what the fans are looking for! Some may say that Konami doesn't change anything around, but IT'S A DDR GAME! There's no need for anything new! The fun of it comes from clearing difficult songs and showing off! Expand

    The quset mode is great, adn all the new modes and stuff are cool, but I would have liked to see a better song list. Its a bit too Ghetto.
