Other GamePeople columnists have reviewed this from their perspective - huh?:
Family Gamer (360)
Returning Gamer (360)


Dance Paradise has been released on 360 Kinect and been provided for us to preview/review by the publisher.

Believe it or not we are still playing it. Here are some extracts of what we made of it in chronological order:

"Dance Paradise misses the mark with vague controls that undermine any real sense of dancing. Even next to the old Dance Dance Revolution games, this was a disappointment..."
- Returning Gamer (Mon, 27 Dec 2010)


"Dance Paradise simplifies Kinect's dancing, but loses a little of the excitement along the way. However, for families with kids over 12 this is the best Kinect dance game so far..."
- Family Gamer (Wed, 17 Nov 2010)

Dance Paradise Announced

06/10/2010

Dance Paradise focuses on multiplayer challenges in an increasingly crowded cohort of Kinect dance games on the 360.

Dance Paradise joins the array of dancing games for 360's Kinect - Dance Central, Dance Masters and Michael Jackson The Experience.

It offers something different with a greater focus on its two player head to head mode. As with other Kinect titles, the dancing is controlled by the camera sensor that tracks limb movement. This offers not only a freer experience but the ability to improvise more move combos.

A partnership with Universal brings an impressive track list with music for all ages. This includes the following:

Dance Paradise will be released for 360 on 10th November.

With so many different perspectives it can be hard to know where to start - a little like walking into a crowded pub. Sorry about that.

But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.
