I usually don't review a video game until I've played it for weeks, but I just have to write about this fantastic new Dance Dance Revolution mix! It couldn't have come at a better time, since I've been playing my older mixes so often that I was getting desperate for new tunes. So far I am simply loving this new release - there so much new stuff to mention! I guess the biggest new addition is the revamped Mission Mode, which gives you various dancing challenges progressively, and they get mapped into a kind of chart. Playing this mode unlocks items that appear in the new Shop (things like special songs, dancing courses, and new outfits for characters), and then you "buy" these items with points you earn from playing the game! It's insanely fun, and it makes you want to play on and on (I got in three hours the day I bought the game)! There are tons of characters (basically everyone from all other mixes), and the graphics are slightly updated with more cool close-ups (although the shading on Alice's face makes it look like she has beard stubble!). There are about 70 songs altogether, with only a few classic repeats from past mixes (not counting new remixes of songs), and several of them are my favorites from the arcade (I love the goofy ones like Speed Over Beethoven). The whole game just feels totally polished, and I'm going to play it until my legs fall off! Let's DDR!
