Dance Central 2 for Xbox 360 with Kinect Review [CLOSED Giveaway]

Dance Central 2 for Xbox 360 Kinect


We have been playing Dance Central since it came out. Our family enjoys laughing at/with each other and getting off the couch and moving. We were excited to hear Dance Central 2 was hitting the market. Especially since they had a few upgrades in this game that we were wishing for in the 1st game.

Dance Central 2 now offers:

  • Simultaneous multiplayer (yes, the Kinect now senses two players at once!)
  • Players can drop in or out at any point during a song so the party never has to stop
  • Voice controls and all-new routines to new soundtracks featuring Usher, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minai, Bruno Mars, Daft Punk, Montell Jordan and more
  • You can easily import your playlist from your original Dance Central game and have it all in one place now
  • Create a playlist function for non-stop dancing!
  • Learn specific dance moves or “break it down” and learn routines in small chunks.
  • Fitness mode tracks calories burned… combine it with a playlist and you’re good to go!
  • Fully integrated music store has over 40 additional titles available for purchase
  • Video yourself dancing and play it back with an onscreen dancer to compare your moves


Song Titles Include:

Atlantic Connection and Armanni Reign – Reach
B.o.B ft. Bruno Mars – Nothin’ On You

Our family is once again dancing our weekends away with Dance Central 2. The new playlist function, combined with the simultaneous players (that can jump in and out without stopping the game), and voice commands make this game even more enjoyable. Emma (age 5) and Ethan (age 3) tend to jump in and out of a game from frustration or distraction. Now Dad, Josh or I can jump into their place and continue without disrupting the original players game. The older kids like the new up to date playlist as well as some of the downloadable songs we purchased.

  90. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
