Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

Dance Factory has a few minor bells and whistles: a basic fitness mode that counts calories, an endurance mode that lets players dance through an entire CD, and unlockable avatars called "creatures" that are lame and have no dance floor flair. The only real drawbacks to the game are its cheap presentation (visuals aren't much more than a glorified screensaver) and occasional badly generated dance. A dance editor solves the latter problem, but unfortunately you'll just have to dance your way through the low-rent package. In the end, you'll be boogying too hard to notice.

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.
