I played off and on on the PS2 version (with dancepads of course) for 3 hours last night. I saw kids of every talent - some girls that couldn't beat a 1 footer, to a kid who beat a 9 with a c. That kid was a fucking machine. He was doing spins, doing everything, it was insane. Watched kids double pad, watched kids use their hands like it was a breakdance pad...
I've never played before, but I played for a while too. I started at a level 1, and i could do a level 3 by the end of the night. I beat BABY BABY GIMME YOUR LOVE, MAKE a JAM!, ON THE JAZZ, and AFTER THE GAME. I taught a bunch of people how to play, and people actually thought i was good by the end of the night.
I want this game for christmas.
