Rather than sitting on your butt twiddling your thumbs while enemies bounce on the screen, Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) gets you on your feet dancing. It takes the controls out of your hands and puts them beneath your feet. Once the beat starts boppin' start your feet hoppin'. Hit the buttons beneath you, to match the arrows on the screen. Everything starts off slow, with a left-foot here and a right-foot there, but before you know it you'll be hopping back and forth like a bunny on a sugar-high.

Dance Dance Revolution Moves Your Feet!

More than just getting you on your feet and moving DDR puts you in the middle of the action. You're the hero, you're the star. An awesome perk is that DDR will turn you from tubby to toned in no time. It's totally easy to trim off the pounds with DDR from Konami. You can even buy the home version so you can keep the beat at home. Hit the arcades and dance up a storm once or twice a week and before you know it you'll be in tip-top shape.

Dance Dance Revolution Crazy Game Options

You can even play it multiplayer by dragging a friend out to the arcade with you. Each of you can hop on a control pad and dance to the beat of your fave tunes. If you feel like showing off your mad dancing skills, tackle both control pads by yourself.

Dance Dance Revolution Final Word

Check out your arcade and bust a move. If you're a real pro you can even take your act to a championship and score some prizes with your moves.

    Yeah the gameplay can get kinds stale. For the first two nights just keep the door closed all night and the power will go out 2 seconds before 6 am. I don't really have a strategy for the 3-7 nights.

    The gameplay does tend to get a little stale after a while. The camera itself is virtually useless unless you just want to see the layout of the restaurant. The only time it's helpful is when you watch foxy. If you don't check him regularly, he'll come at you. If you manage to close your door in time he'll bang on it, draining more and more power each time. Other than that, the camera is basically useless...
