Okay, so nothing's really changed visually. Anxious players haven't been treated to the flashy 60 frames-per-second style seen in the DDR 5th Mix import, and those original Solo Mode arrows are pretty ugly to say the least. Don't get me started on the announcer's silly comments, either ('I can see tomorrow in your dance!' isn't my idea of flattery), but since when has DDR ever been about glitzy graphics and amazing sound effects? It's all about the music.
Konamix finally offers the American audience one of the best DDR song collections ever assembled, hands down. Fans of 3rd and 4th Mixes get gems like 'Hysteria', 'Drop Out', and 'End of the Century', while 5th and 6th Mix nuts can play 'Matsuri Japan', 'Look to the Sky' and 'Groove' to their hearts' content. And remember 'The Earth Light' and 'Perfect Free' from Beatmania? They're all here, available to us at last without the aid of a mod chip.
