Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix – Review

At the same time, DDR, even in North Americanized translations like Ultramix and the PlayStation 2's DDRMAX, still retains some of its foreign quirkiness that is far more intriguing than Britney's Dance Beat or American Idol, America's comparatively vapid offerings to the dance subgenre.

Taiko Drum Master – Second Opinion

The optimist in me looks forward to the day when "drumming game" can be seen not as a novelty, but as an accepted subgenre. Wishful thinking, I know.

Space Channel 5: Special Edition

Game Description: It's the 25th century and our intergalactic space reporter dives into an adventure where she must battle with a series of dastardly villains! Are you ready to save the universe through the medium of dance? You must first battle wicked space nasties, the Morolians, who have attacked and subdued innocent Earthlings with their dance-inflicting ray guns. In order to break the Morolian's hypnotic grasp, Ulala must mimic the aliens' exact dance moves by keeping the beat with pauses timed to perfection. But the adventure isn't over just yet; Ulala must also face another group of intergalactic terrorists who have designs on world domination.

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.
