You've got girls in cat suits, a disco dancer, and a gun-toting lunatic named Strike. Reproduction in whole or in part in any form or medium without express written permission of GameSpot is prohibited. But the real showstopper here is the motion capture. Our song list ranges from classic Motown such as The Temptations, Marvin Gaye and Aretha Franklin. Two dancers attempt to outdance each other with a large variety of different moves. Founded in 1997 and based out of San Francisco Bay Area, Busta-Groove! If PaRappa left you wanting more games in that vein, Bust A Groove makes for a good follow-up. The characters and backgrounds are varied and extremely colorful.
. Review Hoping to capture a bit of the same success that PaRappa enjoyed, 989 Studios has brought Enix's Bust A Move named Bust A Groove here to avoid confusion with Taito's puzzle series to the States. Graphically, Bust A Groove is great. The great music and graphics go a long way, and again, the motion capture is really terrific. Another honor for us is being voted one of the Best Local Rock Bands In The East Bay.
We can do that as well! You pull off moves via a series of onscreen controller commands. Bust A Groove won't draw nongamers in like PaRappa did, but it's still quite a bit of fun. Also to find out where we are performing next make sure you sign up for our mailing list below! The dances branch out into different patterns, and you must sometimes choose one of two possible dance paths. Rather than clone PaRappa's feel-good style and use button presses to play music, Bust A Groove has you pushing buttons to control one of several dancers in an all-out dance-off. A meter at the bottom of the screen lets you know how both dancers are doing, and whoever has a higher meter at the end of a song wins. GameSpot and the GameSpot logo are trademarks of GameSpot Inc. The music in the game is also varied, ranging from house to disco and just about everything in between.
Miss a beat, and your dancer stutters, unable to perform his move. Contact Jeff Lyons for availability and pricing: 408 981-6451 or send an email to jeff busta-groove. The gameplay is pretty basic. A few changes have been made in this domestic release. Strike, while he still manages to sneak two pistols past the doorman, must have had his flask confiscated at the door, 'cause he now packs a can of soda in the small of his back. You can also catch Busta-Groove! Click Here to see for yourself! A few songs may be a bit annoying, but they all provide an interesting take on a different musical style.
If you would like to make your party an absolute success, then let the professionalism, talent, energy and sound of Busta-Groove! The dancers move extremely well, better than any motion-captured movement I can remember. The characters are, essentially, clean versions of the club kids you keep seeing pop up on various daytime talk shows. If you perform your moves on time and in sync with the beat, you'll do well. . .
