A perfect fit for the entire family, DDR UNIVERSE 2 brings back familiar modes from previous games and expands on them with the debut of Freestyle Mode on the Xbox 360 and the introduction of the enhanced Quest mode. In Freestyle Mode, players can dance any way they want without using the signature arrows – making it perfect for kids or anyone with two left feet. Quest Mode allows players to build their own unique character and advance through a set of missions to complete all of the gameplay challenges.
Delivering added proof of the game’s universal appeal is the soundtrack, which draws inspiration from four decades of both classic and current smash-hits to deliver the most complete music library of any DDR game to date. From the 70s, 80s, 90s and today, DDR UNIVERSE 2 has songs that fit everyone’s tastes. For those who want an even wider array of music, they can take their game to the online universe via Xbox Live, where they can download new songs as well as compete head-to-head, and even have access to exclusive DDR-related items. The game’s crystal clear high-definition graphics provide vivid colors and life-like character animations, easily making DDR UNIVERSE 2 the sharpest looking DDR game ever.
As with all previous DDR game releases, DDR UNIVERSE 2 features a Workout Mode, which challenges would-be dieters to dance off those extra pounds. With the ability to track calories burned and provide vigorous exercise, the Workout Mode in DDR is the perfect alternative to more traditional forms of exercise like the treadmill. Because of its health and fitness benefits, the game has appeared in health clubs and school physical education classes around the country, spawning an ever-growing sub-genre of DDR fitness fanatics.
