Space Channel 5: Special Edition – Review

Why would Ulala endanger the lives of the very people she's rescuing? Simple: because a patriotic, war-frenzied populace pumps up the all-important metric that keeps Space Channel 5 in business: ratings. Throughout both games, Ulala eschews the dry, boring facts for slick packaging—a revealing outfit, provocative dance moves, sensationalistic headlines like "Evil in the Galaxy Revealed"—to drive the ever-present ratings meter higher and higher.

EyeToy: Play

Game Description:  Move your body to be a Kung Fu Superstar, Dancing Diva, or even a Window Washing Maniac!

EyeToy: Play – Review

Like Karaoke Revoution and the Dance Dance Revolution franchise, EyeToy: Play is inclusive rather than exclusive. It encourages people of all ages to join in the fun rather than feel excluded from some odd club they have no interest in being a member of. More than Metal Gear Solid or Final Fantasy Whatever, EyeToy is the killer app that can draw people who have never played a videogame in their life before towards the PlayStation 2.

Amplitude – Second Opinion

I don't think I'll disagree when Erin says that Amplitude sounds an awful lot like top-forty radio. Whether that's a good thing or a bad thing probably depends heavily on individual tastes. Still, Frequency's more underground selection of music did give it a big advantage. Frequency was as much about discovering a song as it was about playing it.

DDRMAX: Dance Dance Revolution

Game Description:  The global smash-hit dancing sensation comes to the PlayStation2 with DDR Max: Dance Dance Revolution. The most robust DDR title ever, this is the definitive version of the game, and has gamers jumping to their feet with more than 65 songs, including licensed tracks and international dance hits. The power of the PlayStation2 enables full-motion music videos and high-resolution graphics. Game modes include an edit mode, which allows players to customize their dance routines, and a workout mode that tracks calories burned during play.

DDRMAX: Dance Dance Revolution – Review

The most amazing thing about all of the DDR games is the sense of accomplishment and growth that beating a tough song provides. With other games I've felt similar feelings after beating an especially tough boss or solving a taxing puzzle. But when I truly master a song in DDRMAX, the sweat on my face and the swift beating of my heart magnifies the feeling.

Amplitude – Review

The more I play Amplitude, the less inclined I am to simply call it a music game without adding a hefty disclaimer. Both Amplitude and its predecessor, Frequency, take the player to another more intimate level of the music creation process.
