About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Features:

  • Bringing the Show to Your Party – The celebrities, the professional dancers, the judges, the announcer, the costumes, the songs, the dances. They are all here! The celebrity in-game cast features a who's who of past contestants from Emmitt Smith, Mario Lopez, Joey McIntyre and Joey Lawrence to Laila Ali, Stacey Keibler, Shanna Moakler, Lisa Rinna and Monique Coleman. Choose your favorite celeb, strut your stuff, and then be prepared to receive your “candid” feedback from the show's 3 charismatic judges: Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodmand, and Bruno Tonioli – all of whom entered the sound studio so they could lend their actual voices and classic “critiques.”
  • 36 Licenses Songs – True to the TV show, Dancing with the Stars isn't like dancing your grandma's Viennese Waltz. You'll be jiving and tangoing to some of today's popular songs as featured on the show, like These Boots Are Made For Walking as made famous by Jessica Simpson, Independent Woman Part 1 as made famous by Destiny's Child, Bailamos as made famous by Enrique Iglesias, She's A Lady as made famous by Tom Jones, and The Final Countdown as made famous by Europe,! These body rockin', recognizable hits are guaranteed to get your dance party started!
  • All the Dance Styles From The Show – You'll compete in all the dance styles you love from the series. Show your traditional expertise with the Waltz, Foxtrot, and Quickstep. Let your sensuality show with the Tango, Paso Doble, Samba, Rumba, and Cha-Cha. Or let yourself go crazy with the Jive! They are all here and ready for you to show everyone what you've got!
  • Many Levels of Play – The gameplay is easy and engaging for all levels of ability, with Amateur or Professional levels of difficulty available. Beginners can start out slow with practice mode, before moving onto the dance floor to really strut their stuff. Additionally, you can perfect your moves with single-player before inviting your friends over for multiplayer in either head-to-head or duet modes. But your choices don't stop there! Do you want to be the lead or do you want to follow? You make the call, nail your moves, and then re-play from another perspective to really get your dance on!
