Dance 'til you drop to one of the largest collection of
licensed music to appear in a dancing game. Tracks include
chart-topping hits from Mis-Teeq, Sugababes, DJ Sammi, Sophie
Ellis Bextor and Liberty X...
it's a dance game with a pink cover. So what do the sexist
pigs here do? Refuse to review it under the misconception
that they'll look uncool writing about a girls game. Well,
they may not have wanted to review it, but could I get anywhere
near it once they'd seen it in action? No!
may seem like just another dance game at first sight but there
is more to it. It features a range of play modes and three
difficulty levels from beginner to expert. The dance routines
have been professionally choreographed by graduates from the
Royal Academy of Dance and have been designed to exploit the
new eight-way dance mat.
not easy to get the hang of using the mat. You're going to
need a largish space and plenty of patience to get to grips
with it. You can play on your own or on one of the head-to-head
modes that allow you to compete against friends and family.
And there is even a handicap system that allows players with

does probably mean that your Dad will want to show everyone
that he still has the moves. Humour him... that's my advice.
this is only going to have a limited appeal as the songs will

TV sound down and play something else - the dance steps go
to the beat of the music, but if Bigben release add on discs
in the future, then this will be one series that everyone
will stick with.
the best dance game released so far - if you like that sort
of thing. The only real complaint is that it takes way too
long to get to grips with the mat.
