Great example of what the kinect was made for, so much better than the imitation games used on the wii, especially since it requires and analyzes full body usage. Great variety of music, difficulty and options.
I wish this game was never created, because of how much fun it is for all of my friends and family which then forces me to partake in a dance off with videos and photos. This is the best game out there on Kinect.
Great fun, it gets you moving, and it's absolutely perfect for parties. Although it's disappointing to see so few features and unlocks included, the actual song selection, dance routines, and the accuracy of the Kinect implementation is what makes Dance Central worth a look.
When Dance Central works, the feeling is borderline euphoric - in the blood-pumping, serotonin-inducing way that only dancing can be - as you find yourself stringing moves you learnt individually into coherent routines. [Christmas 2010, p.94]
this game is the only reason why people should buy a Kinect. despite minor glitches with trying to capture motion, the potential of controller-less gaming is on full display with it. Dance Central has a fairly good choice of songs to dance to and the DLC's are worth paying for. it's the perfect party game for spacious living rooms with solid entertainment systems. it won't improve one's dancing skills or work up a sweat (unless you play 2 hrs straight on hard), but i like how it teaches simple dance moves and i bet users of this game will spot gym group class instructors or party-going clubbers who have stolen a few moves by playing Dance Central.
This game is most definitely the best display of what the Kinect can do. Not only that, but it is the best dancing game ever made. Sure, the options may be light, but it actually works. I'm glad the folks at Harmonix decided to focus on making the core gameplay great. Looking forward to Dance Central 2 and the inevitable Career Mode that will come with it.
Who put this together???!!! Obviously not a dancer who knows how to teach!
This is SO about making money. Anyone who has danced knows you have to give basics especially to non-dancers; 1. count out the moves: 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and... and must show more than 2 or 3 actual steps when showing the move initially, and more than once before going into it.
2. state how many moves there are and in what sequence; i.e. Evacuate the Dance Floor: 8 ganks, 8 smush, 8 tap fronts, 6 double p e's, etc.???? There is NOTHING to guide one as to how many of each step to do and in what sequence to do them in.
And the "performance" cannot be slowed down to get that information. Obviously the people who put this together were only interested in getting it out for the $$$, not teaching which is a real shame. Would be really confusing for anyone who doesn't know how to dance, learn steps and do a full routine.
So i bought Kinect with Kinect Sports and DAnce Central.
Firt i played Kinect Sports and it was horrible. It was like 2006 i started playing Wii and back than it was something new.
The firt try was great, amazing and fun. Now with Kinect it was a pain in my ass when i tried boxing, soccer and the other sports.
Okay i was shocked first but i said to myself:
Not so bad maybe Dance Central will be better.
I started Dance Central and i was shocked. Again some very poor rehash from a Wiigame with a few better graphics and awfull control. So i bought Kinect for 150 bucks with a game for 200 to get a god damn copy of a system i allready have.
