Review of Dance Factory

Dance Factory is another game in the long line of Dancing Games.
If youíve ever played Konamiís Dance Dance Revolution (or similar) games, then youíll know what to kind of expect.
If youíve never played a dancing game, then basically youíre able to plug a dance mat into your PS2 and then itís just a case of following the on screen prompts that tell you when to step on the left, right, up, or down arrows.

Music That Lasts Forever!

So, do you like the idea of dancing games? A bit miffed that they come along with maybe half a dozen decent songs, but the rest are just terrible? Well your prayers have finally been answered.

How many times have you wished that you could use your own Music CDs so you could dance along to songs you actually like? Well it seems CODEMASTERS (at least) have paid attention to this wish, for Dance Factory has the amazing concept incorporated into the game that actually allows you to dance to your own collection of songs.

So how does this work? Well basically thereís an option on the main menu that allows you to use your own CDs. When selected, the game asks you to remove your game disk and insert your audio disk. The CD is then detected by the game and youíre taken to the screen that allows you to select which songs you want to play. You can rename the songs to the actual songs on your Music CD, and rename the Artist etc as well. Then itís a case of either creating your own dance step routine
or, if you canít be bothered waiting, letting the game do it for you automatically.

Gameplay is NOT where itís at!

So youíve just inserted your own music album, renamed the songs and artist(s), and had the game automatically create a dance routine for the songs youíve wanted to dance to. Whatís next?
Well, the next step is to actually have a go at the songs.
So letís select Kylieís Canít Get You Out Of My Head or Tom Jonesí Sex Bomb if thatís your preference, and start dancing.

Hang on a second, whereís the clever dance routines of the DDR games? Unfortunately, thatís where the smarts STOP with this game. The steps created by the game are hit and miss to say the least; unfortunately more miss than hit.
Sometimes the routines may be spot on, close to DDR standards, but, more often than not, they fall way short than what is to be expected from a dancing game.

Features make the world go round

How would you like to create your own dancing alien? Well you can with this game.
By earning points, you can then ďdressĒ your Alien like a Hip-hop Artist or even a School Kid.

You wanna have yourself in game? With the use of the Sony EyeToyô, you can.

Unfortunately, thatís it. Maybe an Online Capability would have improved the game, but not by much.

OUR PLEDGE: We promise that we have fully played 'Dance Factory' before writing this review. The scores given above are our honest opinion and were not influenced in any way by the manufacturer or distributor of the game.
