Must of the reviews I read on the Zumba games were pretty negative, but my sister really liked the game, so yeah, everyone's different.

I'm sure whatever game we all think is the worst we ever played, there's someone out there that loves it.

I was thinking the same thing but I found out that when you pop in Dance Central 3 the Dance Central 1 songs you already imported should be there. SO you are only paying to import DC2 songs in. I have them both imported. It allowed me to trade in my DC1.

Ah, messed up tracking is bad. :-/

Do you import the previous Dance Central songs by citing a code from your previously bought games, or do you have to buy the songs again? I have Dance Central 2, and would be sad to lose my songs if I got 3. :o) (I'd love to try out the songs from 1 also!)

Well this time around the music was not as good. At least in Rush the songs were pretty good beat and reconizable plus they had some great dlc for that game. I only heard of one of the songs in this well except maybe sugar plum fairy. I guess now that Dance Central 3 is out and it has a very good list of songs becasue I imported 1 and 2 into it I have very long playlist that keep me going. The other grip of the game is the tracking. For some reason it still thinks its one day ahead and sometimes drops dates even if I save. I think the good added feature is the challenge mode where you can have another person or group of people try it out. I stil give it a 3 out of 5 but I kind of think Rush was better.

I am surprised to hear that move detection is worse in a later edition of a game. emoticon
If I am totally into a game, sometimes just having more/different songs is enough to make me want the next version, but I prefer them to be up front about it if that is the only significant change.
Thanks for the info!

I got Core for Christmas, and I have to say I really love it. I do not have any of the other Zumba games, but I actually like the music and it is keeping me a bit motivated to workout. I guess it just goes to show how everyone is different and how things appeal to everyone differently. I will say that I wish they had the option to use the control to make selections. A lot of times I'm working out with a toddler in front of me, and it wants to recognize his hand instead of mine, so we end up all over the place. I think that should be an option for all kinect games, personally.

I love all the DC games as well, they're fun and provide a great workout.

Thanks for the review, Lobo.
I have 8 more weeks of class then I think I will be setting up my PS3 and 360 w/kinect.
Hopefully, I can get into a routine in the couple of months I'm taking off before I start on the Masters in Leadership and the MBA! LOL

Okay Just wanted to put this small review out there of this game. If you own the prior version of the game then you are not going to see much of an improvement. The same still holds true with the animation of the characters in the game. It just seems the used the already made game and rolled it into this one with new songs. Which I have to add are not very good or memoriable. I tired it for a week and was tired of it. If you want a game to work out to that has good beats do a dance central game. I just was not motivated and the move detection that was not so bad in Rush is a little bit more iffy in this one.
