Have Game, Will Play: Dance Central Spotlight

Dance Central Spotlight is a bit slimmer than its previous releases. There are fewer songs and no narrative. But that’s ok. What makes the Dance Central series fun is still present  – moving to the beat. Dance Central Spotlight comes with 10 songs, an integrated store to purchase more*, a fitness mode and a way to practice all the moves. I wasn’t sure if it was coming back but I am glad it did.

*Many songs previously purchased for Dance Central 1-3 will be free to redownload once available for Spotlight

  1. I guess but it hasn’t introduced a ton of new songs either. I’m excited to play DLC I already bought for DC2/3 with it.

  2. It’s just sad to see that Xbox 360 owners who have supported the previous DC games are not going to be able to move forward in the franchise. Even if it didn’t introduce many new songs, I’m sure it’s an upgraded version of DC3 which would be nice to have.

    As someone who owns all 3 DC games on the Xbox 360 and has no intention of ever having an Xbox One… I think Harmonix has left behind a lot of customers. I don’t see Harmonix surviving very long if it is going to rely on the Xbox One and Xbox One’s with Kinect more specifically.
