Kinect: Dance Central
9 New from
I just got a kinect especially for this kind of game. I've used the Wii for the last 2 years and while I've thoroughly enjoyed it it does have some limitations which the Kinect technology overcomes.
This game is so much better than Just dance or the MJ experience I own on the wii. Simply because of the Kinect's ability. It can tell exactly what you're doing so your whole body is analysed and compared to the dancer in the game. That sounds like it's going to be a whole lot harder than the Wii (and presumably PS3) dance games where as long as the controller is moving OK in one hand then you're home and free - but it isn't as the game is written in such a way that the easy level and easier dances are simple enough to get you into it.
There's no really fancy footwork on easy level but the arm/body movements are similar to that of the harder versions so it's a good way of easing you into it.
The practise mode is very good too, and really helps you to learn those moves.
The Kinect tracked me perfectly and rewarded me with very embarrasing pictures of my "freestyling".
I am enjoying this so much I'm going to order another copy of the MJ experience for the Kinect as I'm sure the technology will improve on the already very good Wii version of the game.
