Glitchy Tasty's Jayce Diaz reviews Dance Paradise for Kinect. While the game has a few good ideas and a wide variety of music, it ultimately falls flat as a whole. He writes:
"A few things should be noted with this game; it is NOT a dance simulator. This game is not Dance Central, and it doesn't try to be. Harmonix opted for choreographed dance routines and specifically timed steps; With Dance Paradise, Smack Down Productions chose a more approachable method which has players repeating a series of random dance steps that more or less fit the genre."
