Dance Dance Revolution Extreme User Reviews
New styles of game play, still does DDR the way it's meant to be done, an enjoyable game to play with friends, party mode is great fun, even though it does stray from the main premise, Hands and Feet is interesting, licensed songs aren't that bad, videos are still colorful and interesting, and the game will satisfy any fan.The bad:
Series is getting a little old, mission mode can be downright frustrating, not as much songs as the average DDR game, you only get two mini-games in party mode without the Eye Toy, some of the Eye Toy games are a little boring, not much to unlock, graphics aren't the greatest (even though it doesn't really matter), and it probably won't attract much more newcomers.Summary:
You would think that the DDR era would be ending soon. I mean, prior to the release of this title, the series has been going on for six years, becoming insanely popular in arcades. Even though most of the fire has burned down, Konami is still bringing out the games, which is a good thing for any fan. As of most updates, this one delivers more than just new songs, we are getting a variety of new modes to freshen up the experience.
You can expect all the things DDR is known to do, such as an arcade mode that lets you dance to three songs at a time, which can get a little annoying after a while...
Over 100 minutes of music, including arcade songs and new songs just for the home version. Compatible with the Eyetoy accessory. Easy to pick up and play. Compatible with both PS2 controllers and dance pad controllers.The bad:
Not quite arcade-perfect graphics. Repetitive announcer & crowd voices. A few songs repeat from prior games.Summary:
The home port of one of the most recent arcade versions of the franchise, DDR Extreme continues the PS2's DDR series with over 60 songs and 100 minutes of music. This version includes several hit arcade & J-Pop songs from all the DDR games as well as other J-Pop & english songs to dance to.
The graphics are excellent but not quite arcade-perfect. The music videos remain generally intact for the arcade songs and are high quality but when you have the dancer on screen it makes the videos appear a little blurry and not as good as the arcade's videos were. The dancers are OK but look too polygon...
It's Dance Dance Revolution!!!!! Need I say more?It has a lot of cool songs like Tsugaru by De-sire,Move your feet by Junior Senior,and the Captain Jack song, Only You.It is fun and addicting.Also, it has cool minigames and cool features like the EyeToy function.It even has a workout mode!!The bad:
The bad part is that a lot of cool songs in the arcade version didn't make it to the PS2 version.Summary:
Overall, the game is awesome.It has 8 modes:
GAME MODE:Basic mode in DDR. This is like the arcade mode of the game. Here you play like if you were playing at the arcade.Has Nonstop and Challenge mode.
PARTY MODE:Contains minigames that you can play with or without the EyeToy.
MISSION MODE:This is the mode that you have to complete in order to unlock everything.Contains 100 objectives for you to complete.
ENDLESS MODE:The name says it all.Play all the songs without the possibility of parole,scratch that, without ever stopping to chose the songs.
LESSON MODE:Learn the basics of DDR.For newbies...
Better graphics quality.
Same DDR goodness.
Some great song choices.
Eyetoy functions are innovative!
Some superb songs are not here!
No Groove Radar???
Short time to unlock every song.
A big disapointment.
What happens next?
I, in my opinion, think that DDR is one of the most innovative and fun games out there. It combines great music with exercise. No other game is unique as DDR. As you may know, DDR Extreme originally debuted in Japan as an arcade game. It is my favorite version because it has over 100 songs! When I heard that DDR Extreme was coming here to US PS2s, I was both excited and concerned. What if it was more innovative but also disappointing?
It was a mixed reaction. (Review contains song spoilers!)
On one hand, I really enjoy the Eyetoy games. They are probably DDR's next big step. All of them are f...
This game includes many of your favorite songs from the origanal DDRs. It has about 65 songs each coming with different steps depending on what difficulty you are at. If you want to lose a couple of pounds and get into shape without going to the gym or to work out, this is the perfect game to do because it is fun, and it helps get you into shape.The bad:
Some songs are not included from the DDR Extreme that you will see at you local arcade and the song select system is a little bit different then the usual, but otherwise you will get used to it and you will soon grow to like it more.Summary:
Heres a list of the different modes and what they are used for.
GAME MODE: This is the main mode for DDR Extreme and is identical to the style of gameplay and difficulty found in other versions of DDR. Use Game Mode to also access NONSTOP MODE and CHALLENGE MODE play.
PARTY MODE: Play different minigames using the DDR Controller. Some games use the EYETOY USB camera for the PS2, and involve you hands-only as well as you hands and feet. There are some games that do not require the EYETOY.
MISSION MODE: Embark on a quest to become the most extreme dancer. The missions each have a seperate challe...
Lots of songs almost all of the songs that are new to Extreme. Some cool oni courses and alot of difficult songs for those who have a good pad and like a good challenge. Also there are some brand new songs that just debuted to extreme for playstation 2The bad:
If you are used to playing at the arcade you'll notice a few arcade favorites aren't included alot of my favorites weren't there but I have ddrmax and max2 for that. O yeah and its all in japanese!Summary:
Overall its a really good game! It seems as if its alot harder to make a AA on this game than the others but thats only if your pad sucks if you get a good ignition pad from redoctane then this is a good game for you. Theres lots of songs to unlock too but also another problem is only training mode and game mode are helpful if you dont know japanese! Its mixed with alot of english though so you shouldn't have a problem knowing what do to although it would have been benefitial to know what songs you unlocked by looking at information mode
