Get down on it

Of all the launch titles for Kinect, Dance Central stands out as the one with the potential to be the most ‘game-y’, due in no small part to the developer behind it. Harmonix has been ‘the’ name in the music genre ever since it first unleashed..

Very fun game. But if you don't know how to dance, at least basic moves you're in for the ride of you life =p

Most of my friends were sold on kinect after trying this game at my place one night. If you want to get a bunch of girls up and dancing this is the game to do it.

Lots of fun to be had with this one for sure, quite the workout as well.
Dance Central is definitely one of the better titles available for Kinect.

Top game, this and kinect sports is the reason why Kinect has sold so well! The menu controls are the best used in any kinect game so far! Just wish there was better downloadable tracks to buy!
