Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is part of Konami's popular Dance Dance Revolution series, which encourages kids to get up and dance and even features a Workout mode to track calories burned. Although there's no online component, up to eight players can connect over a local-area network (LAN) for multiplayer play. There are some very mild lyrics and references to alcohol (having drinks at a club), and some of the dancers' outfits could be considered a little skimpy. The game comes bundled with a dance mat for $49.99, or if you already have a dance mat you can buy the game separately for $29.99.
Is It Any Good?
When compared to the depth of gameplay and multiplayer modes offered by other Dance Dance Revolution series like Dance Dance Revolution Ultimate for the Xbox 360, DDR X comes up a little short. There are fewer tracks by well-known artists, the story mode is pretty shallow, the graphics aren't as crisp, and the announcer who talks over top of the songs is intrusive and annoying. With its low price point, DDR fanatics might still want to grab the game for the new songs, but it's not the strongest game in the series.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
