The new Kinetic is the newest big thing in video games. What’s going to decide if the Kinetic fails or succeeds are the games. The first games that will play Kinetic better be good ones because they will decide if other developers come on board and make games for the Kinetic.
One of the first of the games to use the Kinetic is Dance Central. So you are probably wondering if Dance Central scores a 10. Read on to find out how Dance Central scores.
Dance Central is for sale for about $45-50. You should have no problem finding this game in the stores but you may have a problem finding the Kinetic which you will need to play the game. So on top of the $50 to get the game you will need the Kinetic which is another $150. If you are already getting a Kinetic though then its priced along with other games for the Xbox 360.
Dance Central is a dance game like DDR but you do not need a pad or controller to play this game. This is not the only dance game that will play on the Kinect. The other game that will play on the Kinect is DanceMasters from tmakers of DDR.
Dance Central features is a more mature game then DanceMasters. DanceMasters is rated E while Dance Central is rated T. The reason for the higher rating is the language used in the music. Another difference between the two games is Dance Cnetral features 32 songs on the game with additional donwlodable content for a few dollars. DanceMasters has only 30 games with additional content also costing extra. The songs on Dance Central are more main stream and more top of the charts kind of songs.
An example of some of the games on Dance Central include Crank That, Hella Good, and Poker Face to name just a few of the songs that are on the the game. The game features mostly music from the 2000’s but there are some classics as far back as the 70’s with a majority of the older songs coming from the 90’s. While you will probably not like all the songs on the game there are at least a few that you will enjoy.
This game is going to be the next party game. You will enjoy playing the game with friends. The game could be fun on its own but it is best with friends. I have a feeling though there will be plenty of kids working on there dance moves on their own. The game even has a training mode to teach you the dances.
The game is great but has some small problems. They should have included more classic songs so that parents would enjoy it more because this has the potential to be a great family game. However with the Teen rating families will probably want to play DanceMasters instead. One problem with the game is it is going to take lots of room to have two people play at once. You will want to keep lamps away from players they could get broken.
Overall Dance Central is a great game that is lots of fun. You will get to get off the coach and get a work out while you have fun. This is a great game for a party. However this is a game that is going to be enjoyed by older kids and young adults and not the entire family.
