HAHAHAHA how is that considered dancing?! I guess it needs to be on expert mode to start to look like real dancing?
I was over at Emily's sister's boyfriend's place this weekend and he just got Kinect's Dance Central (Not Dance Masters). We all got to try it. It was actually really fun. You do actually feel like you're dancing in the game and they teach you a plethora of dance moves each with their own goofy names (they might be the actual real names of these moves and I just don't know it) that are fun to laugh at. I'll tell you what, you get a pretty good work out when playing this game. Much more so than DDR I feel because you're actually moving your entire body and really dancing. The best part of the game is probably when you do "Free Style" where you can just dance at your feel will and it will record you and play back a 5 second clip of you dancing in a fast play back type deal. It looks really funny. Over all, the game is a lot of fun, especially for a party type situation. The camera worked a lot better than I had expected. Even when the room was pretty dim, it picked up the person pretty well. I guess it just doesn't work if it's completely dark.
My only criticism would have to be that the view of the camera is kind of limited and only one person can "play" at a time. The only 2 player mode was Dance Battle mode. In this mode, you take turns dancing. I guess that's pretty much your "Bring It On" type style dance battle. I'd like to see a mode where you can dance together. But I don't think the camera or software is smart enough to pick up 2 people dancing simultaneously. Never the less, it's still fun watching people dancing and you can dance in the background if you choose. But people will get sufficiently tired where they will want to sit out and take breaks so the limited amount of players playing at the same time isn't a HUGE factor.
