The #1 selling dance franchise for Kinect is back! Dance Central 3 surprised me with it’s GREAT selection of songs because I know them, I went to school with them, I can sing them and hey, I made dancing them look so fun that Miles took over my game. I’m dating myself by saying I heart Backstreet Boys! I was transported back through time to learn the best dance crazes from across the ages, including disco moves of the 70’s, hip-hop moves from the 80s and the hottest moves on the dance floor today – all set to an electrifying soundtrack of 45 chart-topping dance hits. And you can import your songs from Dance Central 1 and Dance Central 2. More friends can get in on the fun than ever before with a new multiplayer party mode for up to 8 players!! AWESOME! They can jump right into the game and get to dancing! Hot new moves, today’s top songs, and more ways to play. Check him out! He’s a little frustrated but he kept trying and I’m proud of him!
When I first got Dance Central 3 out of the box to play, Miles practically threw a fit because he wanted to play LEGO Star Wars The Complete Saga and I said nope, mommies turn. Plus he hated Dance Central 1 because it was way to hard for him. This one is still hard but that’s because I didn’t change the dance level to easy for him. And I just love his dance moves. Dance Central 3 features great new ways to get the party started! Walk up and jump right in with “Party Time” which keeps the beats rolling and gets everybody dancing! Or team up and go head-to-head in “Crew Throwdown”, featuring new mini-games like “Keep the Beat” and “Make Your Move!” Battle head to head to prove your crew truly owns the dance floor!
We had a few issues with the voice control system but that’s because I was learning what to say. I was trying to change the difficulty setting in the middle of his dancing. You can also use the Xbox glass app to DJ a party with this game, we love that app and have it installed on our phones and tablets. Between voice and the Kinect this game is controller free.
During my turn, I got my heart rate up really quickly, yeah, I’m out of shape and going to work on that more with this game and a few others we have now to play. It’s a great work out while having fun listening to music I love and moving to the beat.
Dance Central 3 has partnered with Usher to bring the global entertainment icon’s talents and passion to the most authentic dance game available! Fans can learn Usher’s routines for “Scream” and “O.M.G.” alongside the other 43 amazing songs on the soundtrack by practicing in “Rehearse”, where Usher himself provides voiceover instruction to help you along! Dance Central 3 and Usher are getting the world dancing this fall!
We received a sample because of our relationship with Xbox.
