    This is what “Extreme” was always meant to be, October 13, 2005

    This review is from: Dance Dance Revolution Extreme 2 – PlayStation 2 (Video Game)

    I’m an enormous fan of Konami’s Dance Dance Revolution series, and play the game almost every day of my life. The concept is so simpe – just hit the arrows once they’re at the top of the screen, yet once you get going, it’s a lot more addicting than you’d expect. What’s incredible though, is that doing this for a long enough time can burn up some calories and tone up your calves. It was life-changing experience for me that out of nowhere got me from being lazy to athletic. It’s getting bigger and bigger every day in the US, but too bad it still isn’t as appreciated as it should be, thanks to monster franchises such as GTA and Halo.

    DDR Extreme 2 is the sixth installment that Konami has released in the United States (seven if you count the Disney Mix), and it’s by far the best one, and it proves to be a great comeback after the largely disappointing Extreme US (although that game is still the recommended one for beginners).

    Hardcore fans of DDR will be most pleased to see not just the menu interface returned to normal (with the songwheel, groove radar, etc., that were removed for DDR Extreme US), but also a significantly better list of selectable songs. Such classics as “Cartoon Heroes”, “Sakura”, “Colors (For Extreme)”, and a whole lot more, all made the cut and should not disappoint any true long-time lover of the series. By the way, instead of “Max Dot”, the “boss song” in Extreme 2 is “PARANOiA Survivor Max” (which is acompanied by the original “PARANOiA Survivor”). Also worth mentioning is that US players finally get a taste of the popular song “Butterfly” with the upswing remix as well as “Boom Boom Dollar (K.O.G. G3 Mix)”, also an old favorite. The selection of songs that everyone will recognize is also chosen much more cleverly. Instead of a bunch of songs from like 25 years ago like “Kids in America” and “Like a Virgin”, we get some recent electronica/dance hits from the likes of Sean Paul (“Get Busy”), Fatboy Slim (“Wonderful Night”), Delerium (“Silence”), and more, although I don’t understand what a horrible cover of “Oops I Did it Again” (not the one from 5th Mix AC) is doing on here (it’s not the year 2000, Konami, and almost nobody even cares about songs like that anymore). The choices for repeats from older DDR games is also great. One big problem that Extreme US had was that it overrepeated stuff that already made appearances, which hogged up a lot of room for better stuff. This time, there are less than ten repeats, and almost all of them are from PS1 editions, which gives a chance for old fans of those songs to play them with much better graphics and a much better scoring system. I must admit, playing songs like “Dive”, “Dynamite Rave”, and “PARANOiA” is much more enjoyable to do on Extreme 2 than it was on Konamix with that slow transmission and poor scoring system.

    Also worth noting are a few new features. Instead of simply playing songs over and over again to unlock new ones, you need to clear different stages in the all-new Dance Master Mode. Replacing Extreme US’s Mission Mode, Dance Master Mode is loaded with several different scenarios with certain songs and a certain task to clear in order to advance to new stages. Along the way, you’ll discover some unfamiliar songs on areas and must clear them. If you do that, they’ll appear in the shop for you to buy with your credits (received for clearing songs, DMM or not). This is a wise strategy that adds a plot to the game and allows players to choose which songs they want at the same time.

    Another addition is the Online Mode. This will allow players from around the world to go head to head with one another online, and yes, I’m sure that the population of onliners almost entirely made up of the masters that can receive an AAA on “PARANOiA Survivor Max Oni” with relative ease, but this is still a great way for those people to go seriously competitive without having to enter a tournament.

    There were only a few noticable flaws. One is that the Training Mode was made less intuitive, as it takes a longer time to set up your song, although I am pleased to see that Konami brought back the feature of slowing down difficult songs to practice. The Party Mode (a feature that was full of many different mini games) has been entirely removed from DDR, and while I won’t cry about that, the usage of the Eye Toy Camera is much lower, as the only time you actually use it is when you are playing the Hands and Feet Mode. One more thing, “Love Love Shine”, one of DDR Extreme AC’s most frequently selected songs (also one of my favorites), did not make the cut, but the similar “Candy*Heart*” is on, which also symbols that “Love Love Shine” is practically guaranteed to be on next year’s installment.

    With all things said, DDR Extreme 2 is easilly the best overall home version that the US can get their hands on so far. With an excellent song list, great new features, and…

    Great songs, annoying “game” plot to unlock them initially, February 12, 2006

    This review is from: Dance Dance Revolution Extreme 2 – PlayStation 2 (Video Game)

    This is a great game for exercising; nearly all the songs made me want to get up and move! I own DDR Max 1 and 2, Extreme 1 and 2, Flow (the rap DDR!), Pump It Up, and Into the Groove, and this is one of my most-played DDR games because of the awesome songlist.

    I love how modern and danceable the songs are, and I love that so many of my old favorites are on here (Afronova here I come!). I embarassingly enough love the silly pop songs like Oops! I Did It Again, Crazy in Love, and Genie in a Bottle, and then there are others that have become favorites to dance to like Butterfly (a fast remix), Spin Spin Sugar (in which the arrows get you to turn around, which is fun!), Block Rockin’ Beats, Get Busy (Shake That Thing), La Copa de la Vida (a great salsa-y track that gets me shimmying along), Pump Up the Volume, I Will Survive, Play that Funky Music, and Boom Boom Dollar.

    There is a huge selection of background dancers to choose from (which I don’t use, as the dancers don’t really dance along with the music or keep to the beat – I prefer to just see the background animations on their own), and loads of videos.

    The one thing I dislike about this game is that you have to play their rigidly-structured “game” in order to unlock songs, where you have to start dancing on a super-easy mode and pass lots of songs, while the songs you are given get harder and harder. There are some levels that have songs where the arrows come from the wrong direction or you have to hit the dance pad as many times as possible *without* hitting any arrows. This wasn’t fun to me; I really wish I could have just unlocked all the songs and special additions by playing the normal old way – selecting my own level and passing new songs. It would have been fun as an additional option but I didn’t care for being forced to play it to unlock all the songs.

    Even with this complaint, this title is well worth adding to your DDR collection. The songs are varied and fun enough to keep you playing for a long time.

    Hey,

    This review is for people who don’t really know much about DDR. Us hardcore players have written some awesome reviews of DDRX2, but I thought I would take the time to write a more simple review for people shopping for others or just starting. Here it goes.

    Welcome. This game is part of the Dance Dance Revolution series. It’s a game in which you really should buy dance pads to stand one first and foremost. Then you plug the pads into the system and play the game. The way the game is played you the player has to quickly match a series of foot placements on a large pad they are standing on, which ends up looking like dancing. I know people who have lost over 20 pounds because they went from gamers who just sat for hours playing games like Final Fantasy to DDR! So in the end you are simply following the prompting on the screen to music so it’s, again, like dancing, thus Dance Dance Revolution (DDR). The version is a version with more songs and more advanced features and I would sugguest it to even a new player, it’s the best! So, if you have an active child or you yourself want something that will really make you sweat and move, this is the game for you…soon you will be a DDR hero much like the other reviewers here are writing for!!!!! Good luck and hope my review was helpful…it’s an awesome game!
