The other day I was horrified to find out there's not one Dancing Stage/Dance Dance Revolution game for the Wii, but rather two of them! (official ones anyway) and the 3rd one is due out any time now. How did I miss that?! Well I ordered them both (Hottest Party 1 & 2) and 2 arrived today and 1 should arrive tomorrow:

It's the standard Konami game, but with some major changes/additions. For starters there are two "hand" gestures as well (shake wiimote/nunchuk) and tons of other new additions. For example some of the arrows you have to hit 2 or 3 times in a row (they bounce back down the screen as you hit them), others appear halfway up the screen, others randomly pick an arrow at the last minute, extra things are added that if hit will SHRINK the arrows making it harder (i.e. don't hit them) and tons more. Wow. Oh and you get points for moving the wiimote/nunchuk in time even if there's nothing to "hit" :)

All in all I'm very impressed, especially as there's a *4 player* mode so you can actually have 4 people on the screen at the same time, each with their own set of arrows. But seriously, who has a living room large enough for *4* dance mats?!
