What You Must Look Out For When Getting The Dance Dance Revolution Game

Nov 13, 2007
If you are purchasing a DDR music game for yourself, you are already doing the right thing. This is a total fun center for your entire family, but most importantly, it is a vista for getting some much needed exercise through music and gaming. It will quite certainly be a big hit in your house right from the kids to the aged folks present in your house.

There are many dance revolution music game versions available in the market today, so you will face some difficulty in selecting the one you like. The consoles are like to the classic arcade consoles, so there you will not be inundated with an option for decision, but you might be in a bit of a spot when you are choosing for the dance pads. The dance pads, as you know, are the crux of the game. This is where you control the game from. Therefore, you must be particular in making your selection here.

First, let us see what kinds of dance pads are available with the dance revolution music games. There are basically three types of pads the soft pads, the ignition pads and the metal pads. Let us tackle them one by one.

1. The soft pads are made of a very soft and thin material, which is much similar plastic. They are flexible. They do have a grip on the floor, but this grip will not last with all the jumping about you will be doing with the game. That is the reason why these pads will slip under the feet after a while, and there might even be accidents if someone slips and falls on them. After sometime, they will want replacement. You must buy soft pads only if you want to cut costs or if you are just a beginner to the dance dance revolution game and want to get a feel of it first.

2. The ignition pads are better on the feet because they are thicker than the soft pads and have an inner lining of foam. Due to this, when you jump on these pads, you can feel the bounce. Your game experience will be better here, but even ignition pads will wear off and you will have to replace them soon.

3. The metal pads are the best in quality. They sit squarely on the floor, and do not wear out even after long years of play. They also look sleeker. But they are much more expensive than the other two types of pads. You must invest in them only if you are an avid DDR player.

Today, the dance revolution music game is compatible with all gaming consoles, such as Xbox, PlayStation, GameCube, etc. So, you can get exactly what you want. Just see that your DDR will be compatible with what you have got back home. Also see that there is a joystick or keyboard option in addition to the dance pad.
