**READ ON TO GET EMILIA'S CLASSIC DC OUTFIT CODE** 100% run and gold stars! Performing "Commander" by Kelly Rowland featuring David Guetta on Hard for Dance Central 2 and Xbox 360 Kinect and choreographed by Marcos Aguirre. (Twitter: @mea5678) "Commander" was made available for download on the Xbox Live Marketplace on 4/17/2012.
Emilia's Classic DC outfit code: At the "Enter Cheats" section, quickly press Left-Left-Up-Right-Right-X-Down-Y. A chime will sound if you've entered the code correctly.
Summed Up: Waacking returns to Dance Central! While there's still fun new choreography to encounter in this DLC, the surprisingly large number of recycled moves may discourage those DC gamers looking for an entirely fresh routine on which to spend their money.
The first time choreographer Marcos Aguirre introduced waacking to Dance Central through Lady Gaga's "Marry The Night", it was a revelation. It's still welcome in this latest DLC release for April, "Commander", but I couldn't help but find parts of the routine dull, all due to repetitiveness.
Quite a few moves in "Commander" have been regurgitated multiple times across several DC tracks, and it's making me wonder what the reasons are for using these same moves over and over since Harmonix's work is typically stellar.
(NOTE: To keep my point about the increased ratio of recycled moves factual, a rudimentary count amounted to 26 recycled moves out of 61 total moves--about 43%--in the routine.)
The difficulty also doesn't seem to measure up to its "Hardcore" rating. Granted, waacking is fairly technical and there's better tracking for it here than there was in "Marry The Night", but the detection is still somewhat forgiving, so aside from that and the tricky two-count backspin, what else is there here that would warrant a six out of seven in difficulty? Personally, I consider Frenchy Hernandez's "What's My Name" routine as even more complicated than this, and that's ranked four out of seven under "Tough".
In closing, this routine for "Commander" only barely earns a recommendation from me. Four months ago, this routine would have been a must-own, but after seeing some of these moves used across at least four other previous routines, I'm inclined to tell most people that unless you really like the song, you should just save your points for the next DLC to come down the pipeline.
