I just received Dance Paradise over the weekend and I really enjoyed it. I like it for exercising and for the family. Our whole family enjoyed this game. I like that the people that show you how to do the dance look like gumby, flexible people without normal facial features. They actually make the game kind of fun. If you are looking to do something fun with the family, this would be a good choice.
We switched it to 2-player mode when I got home, and were amazed... at the lag and lack of motion detection. We would do the most basic of movements, such as marching in place, and it would not pick up our movements. Yes, we were within the Kinect range of sight, not too close and not too far away. There was also nearly two feet between us. My wife was confused since it was working a lot better for her earlier. So we switched it to one-player mode, and it worked pretty well.
While playing this game, I was worried that maybe the Kinect itself had a problem with two players. We tried Kinect Adventures and Dance Masters both in two-player mode; no problems at all. At this point it would seem to me that THQ did a sloppy job with the motion detection programming in two player mode.
