|The sweatiest video game franchise dances its way onto the Wii for the first time in Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party. Konami's exercise in aerobic action is designed to get up to four players moving their arms as well as their feet. Making use of the Wii Remote and the Nunchuk accessory, Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party is the first game in the series to take arm movements into account. Traditional modes like Free Play and Workout Mode return to the series, the all-new Friendly Synch multiplayer mode has each player moving in unison to get higher scores, and an updated Battle Mode provides increased competition. Digital dancers can boogie to an all-new, multi-genre, soundtrack featuring songs like "Summertime," "Disco Inferno," "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)," and "99 Red Balloons."|

Ever been to a party where the DJ plays one song that you almost like for every seven or eight that you don't, but you try to amuse yourself dancing to some of the crap songs anyway? This is kind of like that.
To say that the dancepad-based Dance Dance Revolution: Hottest Party features Wii Remote and Nunchuk integration is an overstatement. The only way you'll use the Remote and Nunchuk is by "swinging" them. The game doesn't even tell you how to swing, and there's no tutorial or practice mode either (we found that a quick shake of either gets the job done). So Hottest Party ultimately has Up, Down, Left, and Right arrows for the dance mat like every other DDR game plus two hand markers that scroll over the Left and Right arrows; it's DDR with six inputs instead of four.
The lack of deeper Wii Remote and Nunchuk functionality initially seems like a letdown since the game requires both (unless you disable hand markers in the options). But after diving into the game's Groove Circuit Mode -- the main quest mode where you'll complete audience requests at a variety of venues and unlock new songs, dancers, and stages -- you might find yourself actually having fun when you can stand the music. Shaking the controllers while stepping around is a blast.
Dance Dance Revolution, or DDR, Hottest Party for the Wii is incredible fun. It is also an awesome workout! :)
This is a review of the game alone. In order to play the game you need to have a gamepad. If you do not get the combo pack you have to get another gamepad that fits a Nintendo gamecube port to play this game.
*I picked up a gamecube dancepad by Powerplay Global LTD for $13.99 at my local Toys R US. Check out prices like this before buying the bundle, you might save more buying the parts apart from each other.*
The object of DDR is to dance along to the song and hit the appropriate pad arrow with your feet. It is a rhythm game that is based on remixes of popular songs. This version has songs from the past 40 years. As an added twist to other DDR games the Wii version has hand single that you have to swing either the remote or nunchuk in time with. So basically you have 4 arrows to hit and then the 2 hand singles also! :)
As a teacher I suggest that this is a fun game to get your kids up and working out on. There are studies out of California that actually show that kids playing this at lunch while at school lost pounds like mad. Some students even lost upwards of 50 pounds while playing the game! It is that addicting and fun!
There are many different modes for the game.
Basic Training. Learn how to use the pad and hand gestures
Dancing. Dance to different songs
Work Out. My personal favorite. Dance and burn off those calories!
Each song has 4 difficulty levels also! This helps the replay value of the game! :)
You can pick from different "dancers" and the graphics are fun to watch. The songs are great and catchy. I found I was dancing away for an hour and a half before I realized how much time I had been on the game. I was covered in sweat and had a big grin! :)
This is a great game. It is set up for 1 person, but you can play up to 4 people on it.
This is by far one of the best games out there for the Wii right now!
5/5. Heck 10/10 if I could. Awesome!
Not available in stores in our area, it was great to find DDR Wii on Ebay.
This game includes not only feet movement direction but it also includes arm movements. The arm movements seem very lame, and not at all with the expression of the music. Though it adds a level of difficulty, it is not a possitive addition to the actual expression of the dance. My children refer to
the arm movements as point bombs! There is still room for improvement to the graphics of this physical game. It would be nice to see top 40 songs of the year included in these packages. (Hip Hop / Pop / and Rap of 2007-2008) The songs seem very dated.
I got Wii last xmas.. The next week i picked up DDR Hottest party 2! Ive been playing it and unlocked all the songs, so I wanted to go back and see what songs hottest party 1 had. I have to say I like the songlist of HP1 better, altho "love shine" is a hard song to beat!
Some mats work with HP1, Will NOT work with HP2.. You need ADAPTERS..
I bought 2... just like original mats on ebay. Brand new, 1 inch thick foam.. awesome pads. they come in pairs for 29.99 free shipping! Also comes with 2 free adapters, and they are compatable for both DDR 1 and 2!
Its weird that the company Konami did that, I googled it and some said they did it coz the 3rd party pad makers were stealing sales...
Just be careful buying pads :)
Hp1 cool songs, love shine is a fun song to get "stuck" on.
Hottest party 2 saves it when you turn off nunchucks, you dont have to change it everytime you start the game.
Its actually better if you get DDR2 first, for the Wii its much more user friendly lol
HP2 u can unlock the option to use your Mii... lol
Great games for the wii!
Get the 1 inch foam pads, your body will thank you... :)
DDR for the wii is alot better than any other DDR ive played. I love how they get your whole body into the action, But with that being said i found the hand controls needed to to moved at the exact time not always fun. But other than that the game is a blast
