DanceDanceRevolution, like the many previous iterations in the series, earns praise for its accessibility and its ability to get players up and moving. Unlike many of today's modern exercise games, the DDR franchise actually makes the process of getting active and exercising a fun one. Players don't have to follow confusing workout commands or keeping track of calorie journals. They simply choose a song, start dancing, and the calories burn off naturally. This version incorporates a whole slate of songs never before seen in previous titles, allowing those who have played other DDR games to have a fresh, different experience with this one. The DDR series of games has a long track record for excellence, and this one fits into that legacy just fine.
