played a few songs from Dance Central 2 this week when I was visiting Mall of America.

Did the Numa Numa song on easy, VERY easy song but I didn't want to do it on a harder difficulty cause we were about to head to a movie.

My wife and I did a dance battle on "this is how we do it" very fun, 2 play dance battles work great.

I did another song the next day "technologic" very fun routine, will work up a sweat fast with this song.

Does anyone know for sure if you need the original dance central 1 disc in addition to the code in the instruction manual to import DC1 songs to DC2? Or do I just need the code and the 5$ fee? I would like to trade in dance central before its value plummets in the next few days.

I got Dance Central 2 this week as I'm reviewing it next week. :D

2-player is fantastic - you can play any song in multiplayer without picking a separate multiplayer mode, and both people get to use their own profiles and earn Achievements. The workout mode seems a lot better and has a lot of Achievements to keep you coming back to it. Menu navigation is much better, with the option to use a controller (YES!) or voices in addition to the already solid motion controls. Anyone who liked part 1 will love 2 as it fixes almost all of the first game's problems.

Dios, you do not need the first game's disc to export; just the code from the manual.

DC2 got a 9.5 in the lastest OXM.

They said similar things, game is better than first one, 2 players works very well.

Haven't really read much about the career mode. I assume it's something like RB.

Yeah, I'm surprised the review embargo is so far ahead of the game's release date. At Co-Optimus we didn't want to run it too early like that.

The reviews don't really surprise me considering Harmonix has really yet to disappoint me in terms of rhythm games. It's just a matter of waiting all over again though.

Has anyone put up a full 100% song list for dance central 2? Also, what characters got cut from dance central 1? I don't see that lady gaga looking girl anywhere in the videos.

You mean Dare? Dare didn't seem to make the cut unless she's a hidden character. So far only ones from DC1 who've made the cut are...

Angel
Emelia
Miss Aubrey
Mo
Taye

Everyone else is new.

I Always swung with Emelia, I don't know why. Though me and my friend also have a weird joy of playing as Miss Aubrey because of the sassy bitchiness.

Speaking of characters, exporting DC1 songs unlocks Mo's DC1 skin in part 2.

My friend kept hounding me that she wanted Teach me how to dougie (sp?) in this game. I honestly never heard the song before but her favorite song in DC1 was Teach me how to jerk. Wonder if it will ever be available as DLC.

What the game really needs IMO is a song or two from Moby.

Party Rock Anthem would make this game a day 1 for me. Song isn't the best when you're sober but when you're hammered drunk it's amazing!

For what it is worth, the song appears in Just Dance 3.

Can you please tell me what songs and/or modes are available in the demo? Also, does it look like a second player can join in?

I need to hurry and get a post up about this on Co-Optimus, so I appreciate it.

club can't handle me and bulletproof are the 2 songs

looks like you should be able to play 2 player but my wife isn't here to jump in

dance now/dance battle/break it down

edit: confirmed 2 player dance now and dance battle and voice commands in menus and break it down work
