DDR Universe 3 boasts crisp, high definition graphics, and each song is accompanied by the artist's music video in the background, making it one of the most visually appealing DDRs to date. That combined with depth of gameplay, adjustable difficulty, and fun multiplayer modes make it a great addition to the Dance Dance Revolution canon.

Some of the best modes include the Quest Mode where you'll travel through Dance Dance city completing dance-off challenges to work your way up to Champion. Game Mode, which is unique to the Xbox 360, is similar to the traditional arcade mode where you complete songs of your choice in stages. Another great feature is that you can track your weight and calories burnt in Workout Mode. And for newbies, there's a Training Mode where you can learn to dance using guides like handclaps, a metronome, and speed adjustments. Party Mode is a collection of fun multiplayer modes. There's even a whacky single-player mode called Quad Mode where one person uses four dance mats, plus a Freestyle mode where players can use any steps they want as long as they stay on beat. All in all, there is something for anyone who wants to dance.
