There is a new challenger in the motion controlled dance competition. How well does Dance Paradise for the Kinect perform? Read on to find out!

Dance Paradise is motion controlled dance game. If that sounds familiar, then you probably have tried other similar games like Dance Central or Just Dance. However, Dance Paradise does offer a bit of a different experience and is worth checking if you are a dance fanatic.

Kinectic Energy

Dance Paradise uses the [/kwlink 24809]Kinect[/kwlink] accessory for the XBox 360 to detect your moves. There are four colored tracks that moves towards you Guitar Hero style. Instead of notes, there are dancing figures on each track and you need to copy the moves when they reach the end of the track. You also need to move yourself physically around in your living room so that you are standing in front of the right track.

Most of the moves are easy to figure out and your XBox avatar will be on the screen to help you know if the Kinect sensor is detecting you correctly. However, some of the moves are a bit harder to figure out and there are no tutorials or practice mode available for the advanced stuff. Additionally, the Kinect doesn't always detect your moves perfectly, but most players should be able to play without failing a song.

Styles in Music, Dance and Fashion

There is a good collection of songs in Dance Paradise, 40 in total, including pop songs by Lady Gaga and rock songs by Fallout Boy. On your own, you can play career mode and unlock clothes and items for your avatar or just do free play.

Like all Kinect games, there can only be a maximum of two players at a time. When you play with a friend, you will share the four tracks in Attack, Versus, and Synchro mode. Of all the modes, attack mode has got to be the most fun. Overall, Dance Paradise is a decent offering to the dance genre.
