Hit the Living room floor with Dance Central 3

Dance Central 3 is loaded with fabulous moves and songs, which is fun for the whole family.  My family enjoys having fun with Dance Central 3.  We already have a few favourite moves and songs :) such as the Macarena, Backstreet boys, J-Lo, YMCA and many more...

Dance Central is a fabulous Kinect for Xbox 360 game by Harmonix Music Systems Inc.  There are lots of new features on Dance Central 3 such as the all-new multiplayer mode so up to eight players can enjoy it together.  The diverse soundtracks attract everyone in the family as it has songs from 70s, 80s, 90s and present.

Dance Central 3 has innovative game modes such as "keep the beat", in which dancers can earn points based on the rhythm of their movements.  "Make your move" is one of the challenges, in which dancers invent their own dance moves then compete to see who can master a routine created on the spot.  If we want a less structured dance party we can put it on "Party" mode that keeps the beats rolling and lets us drop in and out to dance with ease to the best songs.  "Party" mode is our family favourite :)

There are over 40 songs in Dance Central 3.  If you have the "Rock Band" series, original "Dance Central" and "Dance Central 2", you can import and expand the library to have more than 140 songs and routines.  This video takes fans behind the scenes with the Harmonix team for an in-depth look at the characters, their new looks and era-specific venues. 

I like the different skill levels that we can choose from and the "Rehearse" practice mode, in which we can learn the original choreography step by step and then dance.  When we do the wrong moves the corresponding limbs on the dancer in the game becomes outlined with red, so we can correct the mistake to score better. The voice commands to select from the menu option is really fun because we just say a song we want to dance to and start dancing.  

The game can also be played with a mobile companion app and track our fitness goals or challenge friends on Xbox Live.  Although rated Teen, I think this Kinect Xbox 360 game is fabulous for the whole family as the weather is getting cooler :) and we spend more time indoors.  This game would make a wonderful gift.  

Hit the Living room floor and have a house party with Dance Central 3, which is available to buy now.
