I wish I could tell you. The best I can explain it is that I played on the harder settings even when I really sucked (what am I talking about, I still do suck, lol) But eventually you pick up the rhythm of the steps and your feet just follow...just get in the groove...it's almost a zen moment really.

Funny thing is that if I go to the arcade I have trouble doing even basic...I keep tripping on the raised grooves on the pad and find that the spacing is way farther apart...still, practice makes perfect.

Unfortunately it's a hard to find game and lots of people want it (me included). Many try to turn a big profit for it on eBay...sigh...one day I WILL find it decently priced...and it shall be mine (insert evil laugh here)

As a side note I just finished my DDR for the day and managed my first B on Expert (Hottest party version)...I think it was on Summertime. Also good to note I turn off hand movements and gimmicks...that's not really cheating...is it?

Welcome to the team!! Oh my GOODNESS I so suck at the Wii version of DDR - (bounce between beginner and basic) but I have a BLAST doing it :D

a Few of the songs are not my favorite (kharma chameleon and 99 red balloons) but others are just freaking AWESOME. I've unlocked a few stages and hope I can unlock more music.

OK I should be in bed.... but I'm going to go grab some water instead *wave* welcome to the team

I have hottest party, but I never play it. I don't like much of the music, sadly. I LOVE the Mario DDR music though! Heehee. I'll be moving to Hottest Party soon though, as my boyfriend has done and worn-out super hard on Mario DDR and is ready to move on. We often work out together. I guess we'll see how it goes :)

i love ddr but only have hottest party. i'm on difficult and probably won't ever be able to do expert because i just don't want to move my feet that fast.

i think you should post your question about mario ddr in one of the ddr spark team forums.

I am so bad at DDR (the wii version) and I am still mastering basic... I burn about 100 calories per half hour...

emoticon to the team! Although I don't have Mario DDR (I've got the new Wii version)I seem to have the opposite problem as you. I always think that I burn way less calories than the counter on the game says, but since it IS the only cardio I do, maybe I just have nothing else more efficent to compare it to. Don't forget though that the counter doesn't count all your mis steps, maybe if it did your score/calories burned would reflect that more? I'm still working on Difficult mode and yes, those double-taps are killer. Let us know if the HRM makes a difference in the readout, it might incourage me to get one myself.

Well off to DDR some more. Later!

I am new to this Team. My name is Arielle Haze, and I am between Hard and Very Hard on Mario DDR. I get lost on double-taps still, but I'm getting it. DDR is so much fun, but it seems to take longer playing DDR than jogging on my elliptical to burn 100 calories. Do you think the DDR calorie monitor is right?

I am getting a heart-rate monitor soon, so hopefully that will help me tell with more accuracy!

Do any of you use DDR as your ONLY way to do cardio? My boyfriend does. I do the elliptical, DDR and Karen Voight's DVD "Fit and Slim"

Nice to meet you!
