Kids say (1 ):

The motion sensors work pretty well and the dancing is more free than what is offered in DDR (where you are limited to always stepping on specific spots on a dance mat). With this dance game you are encouraged to jump, slide, crossover your feet, as well as just move. The pace and difficulty of the dances gradually increases as you unlock the harder songs. Younger kids will have fun with the minigame where you use kicks to knock lounge lizards off the screen.

While there is two-player option, it is not split screen head-to-head competition. Each player takes their turn with the one set of motion tags and scores are compared. Also, there are only 12 music tracks (including "Run It" by Chris Brown and "Don't Stop the Music" by Rihanna), a very small number compared to more robust DDR titles. Choose this game for families looking for active gaming but who do not own a console gaming system. If you own a console system, the DDR games have more depth.

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.
