What is Dance Central 3? The best-selling dance series game on Kinect for Xbox 360 returns this fall with Dance Central 3. Music and rhythm game innovator Harmonix Music Systems Inc. continues to expand on the Dance Central universe with electrifying new features that keep the party going, including an all-new multiplayer mode for up to eight players and the hottest, most diverse soundtrack yet, featuring songs by Usher, Cobra Starship, Gloria Gaynor, 50 Cent and many more.
Dance through time: Hit the dance floor with the hottest moves you've always wanted to learn from the past four decades as well as current chart-toping dance hits with the game's expanded story mode. Dancers will be up and moving through favorite dances from the past, including "The Hustle," "Electric Slide" and "The Dougie," and grooving to today's top hits.
Don't stop the music: With more than 40 songs on the disc spanning the hottest hits of yesterday through today's biggest contemporary dance songs, Dance Central 3 features popular chart-toppers and the most varied soundtrack in dance games. Continuing the tradition Harmonix pioneered with its "Rock Band" series, the library from the original Dance Central and Dance Central 2 will be importable into Dance Central 3. The fully integrated in-game Music Store will allow players to continue to expand their libraries, for a total of more than 140 songs and routines available at launch.
More ways to control the action Dance Central 3 takes the voice navigation in Dance Central 2 to the next level, enabling voice commands for nearly every selectable menu option in the game.

The third installment for Dance Central 3 comes with a new retro feel About half of the songs are those your parents (or may be even grandparents) will know. This makes a good family game and a good laugh. The game has been updated with more 4 levels of difficulty for "perform it" and the songs are divided into 7 levels of complexity. Luckily, the locked song feature from the first DC didn't appear again so you can skip to whatever song you like. I am not much of a dancer but I think there has been an upgrade in the move complexity and diversity Graphically it might be a bit lower compared to DC2 or it might just be deliberate to convey the retro theme. Character outfits are repeated but there are new styles that you have to unlock. I can't say much about story mode, since you will need to at least conquer the level 5 song to start and I am still clearing level 4 songs. There is one thing I particular don't like about Dance Central 3. On the previous DC when you chose a song you can choose to perform or rehearse it. Now you have to chose Perform it mode or Rehearse Mode then the song. This means, after you rehearse a song and perform it, if you want to repeat the process for a different song, you have to chose the Perform it mode or Rehearse Mode first, then go though the long song list to the song you want. I personally find it a tad annoying. On the whole, if you have DC and DC2, and you value the style, the AI dancers with faces, names and characters as opposed to the faceless ones on Just Dance, you won't regret buying Dance Central 3.
