Critic Reviews for Dance Central Spotlight

Dance Central Spotlight has fewer features than its predecessors, but it still has the moves to keep the party going.

The dancing is fun, as it always has been in Dance Central, but a number of discarded features and bugs make this the weakest game in the Dance Central series

Dance Central Spotlight is a lean but thoroughly enjoyably sequel that shifts its focus toward the core dancing experience.

If you have an Xbox 360 and a Kinect handy, you'd be better off just picking up prior Dance Central games on the cheap and reaping the benefits of an extended library, better multiplayer, and more game modes. But for everyone else who bought an Xbox One and has a Kinect collecting dust, it's a great way to bring some life to your next party.

Dance Central Spotlight is a very good formula to follow for future music games with a cheap cost of admission and the chance to build your own personal collection of songs.

So back to the original posit that this newest generation of consoles is filling up with HD remakes. At a cost of $1.99 per track times ten tracks, you are essentially getting the game for free and the tracks at half price. This update to the Xbox One costs less than two cups of coffee and is far more than just a new coat of paint. Come for the new and improved features, stay for the far better soundtrack.

While not the best "game" there is, this is one of the best displays of the latest Kinect technology. The move to digital is a great choice, as is giving you the ability to compile the soundtrack of your liking in the long run. There just needed to be a lot more meat on the bones of this meal, as well as the ability to get to the main course a bit quicker.
