Dance Dance Revolution SuperNova 2 brings a new set of songs into the Dance Dance Revolution world. As usual, depending on the songs you personally enjoy, this could be a good or a not-so-good thing.
I always find it fascinating where one person says they hate game X because the song set sucks - and then another person says they adore game X because the song set list is to awesome!! We all have very different tastes in music. It is well worth it to look at the song list for yourself and see if the songs appeal to you or not. No game will ever have 100% songs you love - but there should at least be a few that you're going to enjoy playing.
I have several DDR games and I use SuperNova 2 as my "warm up set" before I move on to the other games. So when I go downstairs to where my DDR mat and such are set up, I'll start with this SuperNova 2 game. It tends to have slower songs that get my muscles and legs warmed up. So it has Unbelievable, Got to Be Real and Take On Me (with the actual music video). These are all relatively slow but are fun to dance to (for me!) and get me moving. After I do two sets of these three, I pop out the DVD and move on to the actual high energy songs I plan on playing with for the afternoon. Then when I'm winding down I'll go back to these to end up with.
What if you hate the 3 songs I mentioned? Well luckily for you there are tons more :) So what one person likes, another person hates. It's the way these games work.
The graphics are certainly nice enough for a PS2 level system, and I've played it on everything from a little laptop to a bit high definition TV. It works fine in all situations. Right now I have my laptop set up in the basement with the mat and I can see the arrows and moves quite easily on it.
I have played with workout mode, but really it's easier for me to just hit 'sort' a few times to get them into the most-played order, play through the few songs I want to warm up with, and then move on.
I like the steps on the songs I play, but again your mileage may vary depending on the songs you tend to play with.
In general I suggest you look through the full song list and if you see things here you like - enjoy! If the songs just don't appeal to you, there are certainly enough other DDR games for you to choose from. For me this is a keeper!
