"You GOTTA see the moves of this here baby!!!"

The Good
I honestly admit, I stole some moves from this game. This it my first Bust-A-Groove game and I was in awe of the dance moves this baby had to give. Dang, this game is awesome!

There are several characters with different kind of styles so, practically anyone could find their favorite hero to play. My personal favorite was this gun slinging cool-looking punk (in the middle cover art). I don't know what his style is called but dang, they look good.

The game is practically a versus mode. Either you against the computer or you against a human - which then was mostly with my ex...uh...nevermind.

Each player gets they're chance to show what they've got by pressing the buttons at the right time. If you get all the buttons correctly for a straight number of rows, you'll end with a spectacular finish (this is the part where my hero fires his guns)...when that happens...the girls go wild...Now I know what it feels like to become Backstreet Boys.

In many ways the concept is similar to Tekken. You "fight" your way to the final boss, and you are rewarded with a final cutscene.

The Bad
There was only one character I liked...I couldn't push myself to play any other characters as they didn't fit my "style"...hehehe. Some movements do look awkward I must admit...but it's probably totally subjective opinion.

The Bottom Line
This is much cheaper than getting dance lessons. The memories I had with this one...
