Dancing Stage Mega Mix includes a number of gameplay modes; including a straight conversion of the arcade game, the option to practice with favoured tracks, or master the basics via a tutorial mode. The hugely popular 'Calorie Counter' idea also returns, with users able to view how much energy they burn while in play, making Dancing Stage MegaMix an ideal and fun addition to the user's fitness routine. Players can also compete against each other using two dance mats or a separate controller with both aiming to accrue more points than their rival. Using either a PlayStation controller or a special dance mat accessory (available separately), players must match the relevant buttons as they appear on the screen. Bonuses are awarded for free-style moves, with additional tracks and hidden items unlocked as the game progresses.
Dancing Stage Mega Mix will have you working up a sweat to over 65 songs.
The 100+ minutes of music include licensed tracks, fresh dance hits, and cool new songs
Designed to take advantage of the powerful PlayStation 2 hardware and its increased storage capacity, Dancing Stage Mega Mix delivers never-before-seen in-game videos, new gameplay options, blistering 60-frames per second frame rates and the largest song library in franchise history.
Further enhancing the gameplay experience is the introduction of the FREEZE ARROW option that freezes on-screen arrows and forces you to modify your dance steps thus increasing complexity and adding a twist to the routine.
Popular gameplay options that return are the Edit Mode that enables you to customize your own dance steps, and the special Work Out mode that tracks the number of calories burned with every move.
