I ordered the disney DDR off of ebay last week, can't wait to get it. I already have the dance mats because i had it before, gave it to friend for their kids, and they sold the game but gave me the mats back. emoticon It is for the playstation 2, but since we have two of those, at least when i want to do it i won't have to fight everybody for it! I am excited because it is more music i know, you know hannah montana and all that disney stuff! By the way since starting my wii fit 2 weeks ago i have lost 5 lbs. Woo hoo me!

I think that the ones on the system will be similar, but the ones that's "plug and play" (they don't use a game console but just plug into the TV) will be watered down.

However, there is DDR:Mario Mix on the Gamecube that is definitely watered-down.

I wonder if the disney one will be of the same difficulty, or if it will be a watered down, simple version...

Anyone check out the Disney DDR? My DD wants to get one. She said it comes with 2 game pads. May want to check it out myself.

Id like to say its nice to see a parent researching a game for their kids. My husband and I are gamers and it frustrates us when we hear news reports on how games/music/movies are causing children to misbehave or causing adults to destroy their lives. Blaming the games rather than personal responsibility. Of course those are the only ones that get on the news I suppose, someone standing up saying they review all media their kids get or how they budget their time to meet their obligations just doesnt make good dramatic news.

I saw an excert from a humor site that sums it up some.

Yeah I love the Chrisitian idea - they sell it at Lifeway stores - but I just can't make myself exercise in front of the computer - besides the fact that the computer is in my dd's bedroom & there wouldn't be room for a mat anyway...

there's one for the computer--with multiple packs of music that can be combined into one. (unlike the video games, you can have all the songs available from all the versions).

I wish I knew who to contact to get a Christian version of DDR created. There are Christian songs that have the same beat and it'd be easy enough to substitute.

all DDR mats on the Wii connect to the Gamecube Controller ports on the side of the Wii--and all are compatible.

The DDR mats for other game systems connect differently, so do make sure it's either a Wii or Gamecube version for what you get.

Do keep in mind that some third party (not made by Konami) mats don't work with Hottest Party 2, but I think there might be a work around by plugging the 3rd-party one into the second slot while having a name-brand one in the first slot...but not sure about that.

OOOO! I can't wait for the Disney one that's PERFECT!

I wonder how you can play with 4 people though? I wonder if it'll use the same mat as DDR - 'cause if it doesn't of course I'll wait fot it but if it uses the same mat I could go ahead & get DDR while I wait on the other (I've got b'day $ burning a hole in my pocket! LOL)

about difficulty--no, there's no difference.

All DDR games (no matter what game system) have multiple levels of difficulty and also allow you to turn off such things as jumps, eighth-note steps, and freeze arrows.

This is a little off topic, but I have heard that the Leslie Sansone Walk by Faith dvd is good. You can check it out on Amazon and read the reviews.
On topic, I think I would like to get DDR for the wii too.

Thanks so much for the comments - I can't be too conservative if I'm thinking about buying it - eh? LOL But since they don't make the Christian version for the tv just the computer then I dont' have much of a choice.

Thanks for the screen shots - I only saw one girl that was pretty trashy - zebra print hat & underwear - I mean shorts! HA!

I think I may have to buy this with my b'day money after all.

Is there a difference between DDR 1 & 2 other than music? One's not harder or anything is it? Cause I need as easy as can be... I've only seen 2 at Target...

not sure about either. The one song I was truly insulted by ("blow my whistle") isn't on a Wii version of DDR--it was on a PS2 version.

A lot of the songs of Hottest Party 1 are disco type songs. As for the dancers, you can pick which one you use for each player (although you can't actually block any of them from being used)--some are scantly clad, but still covered, and not quite as realistic as what I would think Guitar Hero seems to be (don't really have any to compare).

I'd say it's hard to compare for you, since you seem to be pretty conservative. (Not a bad thing, just hard to say what you would think about it based on what I would think.) I'd recommend possibly renting it and seeing what's in it. Or you could look through the song lists from the link given below (might have to do a "show" on the songs list to see them), and possibly look up a site to find screen shots of the game to look at the characters.

I used it for the first time yesterday. I honestly dont recall what they were wearing, I want to almost say disco style but I really cannot remember. I dont remember it being offensive, but I dont have children in the house so my idea may be different. I do remember my cousin having it for another game console years ago so it couldnt have been too bad (my aunt is pretty strict about that sort of thing).

You can chose the song list. Took me awhile to find it, and it was from random button pushing so not sure how I got there, but you can set up song lists so that the game goes from one to the next. Or else you can just pick one at a time.

I pretty much sucked at it with my poor coordination, but I really enjoyed it at the same time.

do you like it? Are the people dresses decently for my kids to see? (Guitar hereo they are pretty scantly dressed) Is it worth the $? We probably won't know many of the songs unless they are older from the 80s - we almost exclusively listen to the Chrisitan station - so I'm wondering if we'd still enjoy it.

Can you pick the songs you dance to or does it pick them automatically?
