Players: 1 to 2 Player Game | Release Date: 09/17/01 | Genre: Music
"Come along and sing a song and join our jamboree. M I C K E Y M O U S E!" From the moment you load Dance Dance Revolution Disney Mix, players will be dancing to remixes of their favorite Disney songs. DDR Disney Mix is the newly released sequel to Dance Dance Revolution. While the gameplay mechanics are the same as the original, the music is all centered on Disney. Fans that have mastered the original DDR or are looking for more music to dance to will definitely find something to like about DDRDM.
Gameplay is simple. Plug in a dancing pad, which is sold separately, that is about the size of the old Nintendo World Class Track Meet pad. Don't forget to pick up two pads so you can dance side by side with a friend. After selecting the song with the appropriate difficulty level, arrows will begin to fly up on the screen. When they reach the top, you simply step on the appropriate space: up, down, left, or right. If you haven't played the original and think this sounds simplistic, trust me-DDRDM will frustrate you while entertaining you. However, if you miss too many steps, it is game over.
If a dance pad is not available, you can use the normal controllers. But since this is a dance game, what is the point of playing without the dancing pad? Shell out the extra bucks and get ready to have a great time.
While dancing, your favorite Disney characters will appear in the background. Sprite versions of Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Pluto, Chip & Dale, and Hewey, Dewey, and Louie will dance alongside with you. While I found Dance Dance Revolution Disney Mix to be a fun and enjoyable experience, only players who are tired of the standard DDR gameplay will be disappointed. Everyone else should go pick this one up.
