SuperNOVA 2 won’t engross those who have yet to be turned on by DDR’s catchy, rhythm-based gameplay. But if you’ve enjoyed the series and still want more, you can’t go wrong with this sequel.
There's nothing particularly wrong with it — no gigantic loading times, no huge bugs — but there's nothing overly special or new about it, either. SuperNOVA 2 is a solid entry into the series, and despite a few questionable choices amongst the licensed tracks, it's perfectly enjoyable. Still … if this is the best response that Dance Dance Revolution can hope for, is it time for the series to evolve a bit?
Like DDR? You're probably going to dig Dance Dance Revolution SuperNOVA 2. You've got 70 new songs to play through, a tried-and-true stable of game modes and a lagless -- at least in our play tests -- online experience to hook you up with fans as obsessive as you are. However, make no mistake about it -- this is the same ol' DDR with a new mode and a new track list. When my time on the mat was done, I felt like I had just gotten done with one of the 173 other versions of the game. There's nothing that makes this one stand out.
In the end, SuperNova 2 is a fine song expansion for those that enjoy Dance Dance Revolution. Long time DDR fans will be happy to have a new set of songs to dance to. In the end, SuperNova 2 really doesn't do a whole lot to add anything new or fresh to the dance game scene, and is thus “just another sequel.” Fans of DDR will have fun with this one, but may feel that the price tag might be a bit much for what comes down to a glorified song expansion off of SuperNova original.
The Video Game Critic
As usual there are a slew of Japanese pop songs that range from ultra-cheesy to insanely infectious. Supernova 2 also includes the ability for four players to play against each other(!), but would you believe that's on-line only!? There's really nothing super about Supernova, but the beat goes on...
DDR: SuperNOVA 2 doesn't bring much new to the table, but it does execute some of the tried-and-true series staples better than its predecessors. As a first DDR or a workout tool, it's a great place to step in, but series veterans should consider it yet another slight tweak on a game that's nearly played out.
I think that DDR: Supernova 2 is fine. I think that the music is a good portion of the game and I didn’t enjoy it almost at all. Now this doesn’t mean the game is a total loss, in fact it’s fine. I just wish that the music was more of a variety, something that all ages could enjoy. No offense to Justin Timberlake, but it will be a very chilly day in hell before I shake my booty to anything he’s doing. That music just isn’t my style.
Dancing Stage SuperNova 2 es la despedida de la saga en Playstation 2. Desgraciadamente no hemos visto en él lo que esperábamos, algo así como la entrega definitiva. En lugar de eso, tenemos un juego más de la franquicia, que aparte de nuevas canciones y pequeñas novedades como poder comprar objetos reforzadores y demás, no ofrece nada nuevo en términos jugables que realmente lo haga distinto a entregas anteriores o que muestre una evolución con respecto a los mismos. Sólo los fans MUY fans de la saga se harán con él hayan leído este análisis o no. El resto pueden hacerse con cualquier entrega de las disponibles en PS2, pues todas ofrecen una experiencia jugable idéntica.
Overall, it seems as though the PS2 is on its last legs and this is one last way for Konami to cash in. The recent DDR game on the Nintendo Wii is a much better game – there’s more up-tempo songs, and you’re also moving your arms plus the difficulty level of the random arrows makes it much more of a challenge. (If you play the game with the Eye Toy, you can also use your hands, but it’s nowhere near the level of fun that you get with the Wii version.) If you absolutely need to increase your music set list, you should hope you can get this game used or in a bargain sale. As a full priced game, it’s very difficult to recommend.
The game looks fine, with your large motion-capped dancer busting real dance moves while you jump around on the mat. The production values are slightly worse than last year, simply because they're the same as they were last year. And that's pretty much the story of Dance Dance Revolution: SuperNOVA 2; it's more of Dance Dance Revolution: SuperNOVA. If 70 new songs are worth 40 spent bucks to you, go ahead and ask this game to dance. Otherwise, wait for something catchier to come along.
