According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Lyrics
Parents should have no concern with the content of DDRMAX. No one bleeds, nothing explodes and even the occasional bad words in the songs have been edited out.
People who don't own a dance pad need to buy one before playing this game. The game is totally meaningless without it.
People who have never played a DDR game may want to try the original Dance Dance Revolution first, as there aren't that many easy-to-dance songs in this mix.
People who own other U.S. DDR games will love the new songs, new interface, and new features like freeze arrows. People who have imported all the Japanese DDR games will find roughly a dozen new songs, but none that are that impressive.
People who like rhythm games in general will like DDR, even if it takes them some practice to get used to using their feet to keep the beat instead of their thumbs. People who like games with action, adventure, or a deep storyline.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers will obviously have a tough time dancing to a beat that they can't hear. may want to try the original should look elsewhere.
