DANCE YOUR BLUES AWAY

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - REVIEWS -

Un­doubt­edly Kinect’s best ti­tle, Dance Cen­tral is back with its sec­ond in­stall­ment. Af­ter let­ting our heels cool for a year, Har­monix has tried to im­ple­ment the sug­ges­tions of fans. There are a lot more char­ac­ters and dance crew with each adding their own unique fla­vor to the whole. The out­stand­ing new fea­ture in DC2 is that now two play­ers can si­mul­ta­ne­ously shake their booty. The main menu is now voice en­abled, and you can start the game by say­ing, "Xbox, dance." If you need to pause, the game re­sponds to the com­mand "Xbox, pause." The fit­ness mode of the game is still there for health freaks. There is a new Crew Chal­lenge Mode where a fresh dancer tries to move up the ranks by tak­ing on the best dance out­fits .By suc­cess­fully beat­ing them you un­lock new teams and out­fits for the dancer. You have a varied range of mu­sic from hip-hop tracks to elec­tronic. The songs are a mix­ture of old school and modern, in­clud­ing Lady Gaga’s “Born this way”. DC2 fea­tures a new built-in store to en­able you to down­load new tracks or im­port tracks from the orig­i­nal game.

Dance Cen­tral 2 is pre­dom­i­nantly the same game but as two can now boo­gie to­gether, it is a bet­ter party game. There is no sig­nif­i­cant change in terms of graph­ics but the char­ac­ters look sharper. Now the game mak­ers should add a fea­ture where ac­tual peo­ple play­ing online can com­pete with you.
