Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

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.
