One of my most anticipated Kinect games was Dance Central, I am a huge fan of the Just Dance series from Ubisoft and I felt that Dance Central would be taking that title and improving it by tracking my entire body.
And it does, it’s apparently very good and really quite entertaining but it has a fatal flaw that has dropped it from being number 1 on my list to somewhere near the bottom.
The thing is what I enjoy about Just Dance is that my entire family can grab a Wii remote and dance off against each other. I get to look like and idiot and my kids get to beat me at games. It’s fun.. and that is why I game.
However Dance Central doesn’t really have a multiplayer mode, apparently the way it works is that you each take turns dancing as Kinect can only track 1 dancer correctly at a time, and then at the end of the song you get to see who wins.
The lack of a substantial multiplayer component pretty much kills this game for me, I think I will rather pick up Just Dance 2 and wait for Dance Central 2 to come out with the required multiplayer being dropping money on this one.
