7 cert, Mi­crosoft, Xbox The big­gest com­peti­tor to Ubisoft’s Just Dance fran­chise, Dance Cen­tral has had an up­date just in time for Christ­mas. Not only does it of­fer new team bat­tle modes – you can go head to head in a se­ries of minigames and dance-offs in teams of four – but it also has a story mode. Yes, a story mode. In­stead of just aim­lessly wan­der­ing through the var­i­ous songs, hon­ing your skills for the fam­ily party, now you have a pur­pose. In fact, Dance Cen­tral 3 doesn’t re­ally need a plot, let alone this rather weak one, but we’re stuck with it. You are a mem­ber of Dance Cen­tral In­tel­li­gence, seek­ing to foil a plot to de­stroy Dance Cen­tral. The way to do it? Travel through time learn­ing dance moves. But at the end of the day, the ba­sic build­ing blocks of Dance Cen­tral re­main. The bet­ter you copy the on­screen moves, the more points you earn. The higher the level , the more com­pli­cated the moves. If noth­ing else, it will give you in­spi­ra­tion for your of­fice Christ­mas party.
