DDR games arenít something you play for the graphics. In fact, if they were any flashier, they might detract from the game, making it harder to play (and giving players massive headaches). Ultramix 2 delivers a club-type atmosphere, complete with flashing lights, some trippy background images and the ever present scrolling arrows. A few more cel-shaded dancers, as well as some video clips are also thrown in.
Other than the addicting gameplay, music is one of the real reasons people play DDR. With every ensuing release, song lists usually hit the net with fans cheering and booing which songs are included. Given that Iím not in one of these elite circles of DDR players, Iím not one to judge if the ďrightĒ songs have made it onto Ultramix 2. What I can tell you is that thereís something here for everyone, ranging from techno to hip-hop to J-pop, even a little classical is thrown in. The mix is varied and should give players more than enough to work with. As with the last version of the game, new songs are available for download over Xbox Live.
