The new DDRs are out!
Two new additions to the DDR franchise, Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party 3 for Wii and Dance Dance Revolution X2 for PS2, were released this past Tuesday. I’m still looking around for reviews; for HP3, one DDR novice posted a positive review on Amazon and the buzz on GameFAQs has been pretty good.
The balance board mode for HP3 seems to be working well by all accounts. I still haven’t heard anything about doubles or workout mode for either game. Maybe I’ll see if I can test either game out at a store. So far they are only being retailed in bundles.
Update: Here’s a good, thorough review of HP3 on Diehard GameFan. The reviewer raves, but also points out that selling the game only in an expensive pad/game bundle, punishes the fans who already have pads from 1 and 2. Come on, Konami – at least give us doubles mode (or triples or quad) so we have a reason for all that plastic.
