Dan: Easily the most commercial of the Kinect launch games, especially as it ties in with a host of well-known pop music acts. Yes, it's basically Rock Band with dance music, but it's very well done--and, interestingly, it has the best implementation of the motion control menus, beating out even the native Xbox Kinect menus.
Scott: The cool kid at the party without a doubt, Harmonix's dance game is a nearly perfect launch title for the Kinect. Smooth, easily navigated menus work better than any other Kinect game, and the way the game breaks down dance moves and gets players into routines is clever and addictive. I found myself shaking my hips to Lady Gaga in ways I never wanted to, ever, yet I felt surprisingly unselfconscious doing it. Dance-offs are multiplayer-friendly, and the title seems like both a great game for couples and a fun party experience, too. If you're buying a Kinect, you're buying this.
