Gamedaily's Robert Workman writes, mention the words "Disney Channel" to any young kid and they're likely to fire off a list of their favorite shows. If girls don't go crazy talking about Hannah Montana, they'll probably scream and jump around over their admiration of Zac Efron and everything High School Musical. Suffice to say, they'll love Dance Dance Revolution: Disney Channel Edition, even if it has minor flaws that keep it from comparing to more elite entries in the series.
The song list will appeal to Disney Channel fans. You'll find a number of favorites, from Hannah Montana, High School Musical and the Cheetah Girls, along with a few popular theme songs from other shows. Konami also threw in a number of other upbeat, licensed songs, including selections from Wavegroup, NAOKI and Big Idea, among others. Selection is limited to around forty songs, which is just over half of what other DDR games offer. (DDR Supernova 2 clocks in with a whopping seventy songs) However, what's here more than serves its purpose, although some of the cover songs sound corny compared to other picks.
Long-time fans of the series may consider stepping aside from the Disney Channel Edition, if only because the game will seem half-baked compared to other games in the franchise. However, seeing as how this game is built specifically for younger audiences and fans of the cable network, they'll like what they find. The various modes, familiar characters and energetic gameplay are strong enough to overcome any obstacle – even the That's So Raven theme song.
