I love it when a dance comes together.

Good menu design, accurate motion detection, general polish

High barrier to entry, limited appeal to song list

When I saw the videos of people playing Dance Central in the Harmonix booth at E3 this year, I couldn't help but laugh. The ridiculousness of shaking around in front of the Kinect camera was hilarious. I couldn't see myself actually doing the same...

Kinect gets its first must-own title with Dance Central, a game that's as much about busting a move as it is about showcasing the potential of Kinect.

The spirit of dance is a wonderful thing. It's active, it's social, it's fun - but it's not the easiest thing to recreate in a video game. And while there have been popular dancing titles in the past like Dance Dance Revolution, to date the essence of...

Dance Central Review [360]

 

The first generation of games for Microsoft's new motion control device were always destined to be the experiments – the test cases to see A) what people will buy, and B) what developers can get away with. That may sound a little cynical, but just take...

Looks and sounds great ; Well-balanced learning curve ; A lot of stupid fun ; Great with friends

Occasionally misinterprets moves ; Track list won't be to everyone's tastes ; Strange progression system

Dance Central is a great game marred by some odd design choices, which emerge most likely as a result of its being a first-generation Kinect title. It's great to play and taps into the just-one-more-go mentality that has defined so many titles, but...

Review: Dance Central

 

Before I officially begin the review, I must state that I have been sold on the Kinect since its announcement. This is a legitimate piece of Star Trek technology that I can purchase from the local Best Buy and put in my living room, allowing me to...

I think it was Leo Sayer in 1976 that once sung, “You make me feel like dancing,” and that's exactly the sentiment that Harmonix's debut Kinect title evokes. Harmonix, who are undoubtedly the king of the music genre, have not only managed to create a...

Dance Central is as close to a killer-app that Kinect has to date and Harmonix has gone and proven that they’re not a one trick pony. If you're looking for an excuse to get Kinect, ladies and gents, may I present to you, Dance Central.

Dance Central Review for the XBOX360

 

You should be dancin', YEAH!!!

Best Kinect launch title; Shows off the Kinect technology properly; Revolutionizes the rhythm genre; Hand-swipe interface; Tracks limbs almost perfectly; Friendly tracklist and progression

Trainer could have better navigation; Flashcards could be more customized; Limited multiplayer

Dance Central Review

 

The dance revolution is over -- and Dance Central wins.

Wide variety of music and dance styles; great tutorial system; trademark Harmonix style and polish

Shoddy dance recognition for some steps; multiplayer and workout modes are weak; dancers are canned and egomaniacal

Dance Central Review

 

Dance Central welcomes wallflowers and hot steppers out on the dance floor with great routines and engaging visuals.

Great visuals are both invigorating and informative ; Wide breadth of dance complexity ; Helpful training mode ; Hard to resist dancing along with your friends

Weird photo functionality

Anyone who has played other rhythm games will be familiar with the scoring system in Dance Central. You earn points for busting moves correctly, and your overall performance is graded on a five-star scale. The Kinect tracks your whole body very well,...

Dance Central's premise of getting people off of their asses and dancing to the beat isn't a new one in the world of videogames. Konami's had years of success with its Dance Dance Revolution series, but that only gets you moving your feet, and arguably...

Of the Kinect-enabled titles available for launch, there’s been the most hype surrounding Dance Central. It’s buzz that’s hard to understand unless you’ve experienced the game, but it’s a buzz that turns out being completely justified. There’s room for...
