Summary Children's Technology Review: This DDR (Dance Dance Revolution) kit (sold with a dance pad for $80 or without for $50) is designed for the Xbox 360. The dance pad plugs into the USB port of the Xbox 360; no other controller is needed. If you like DDR, you'll find a challenge along with some new modes of play in this package£not to mention the 65 fast-moving songs that represent a variety of genres. The word "universal" in the title is supposed to mean this game is for everyone; a goal it only partially fulfills. Our testers found the screens to be cluttered (sometimes making it hard to see the arrows), and it is easy for very early beginners to feel rejected, when "failing a stage." Also, one of the levels features a wriggling female form that will£let's just say£distract male dancers from the arrows. Another minor quirk: what's the different between "basic" and "beginner" in the level menu? That said, if you're looking for a DDR option for the 360, this is a good choice£due in part because it uses a tried and true DDR format and has some new modes of play, such as a relay mode, where dancers take on a marathon race. There are also modes called Edit, Quest and Party£11 in all. The Xbox Live option lets you post scores online or download (for a cost) additional songs that can be saved on your Xbox's hard drive.
