Oha Studio – Dance Dance Revolution is a Dance Dance Revolution game for the Sony PlayStation console. The game features songs from the Japanese children’s’ TV show Oha Studio. There is no arcade counterpart.

As previously mentioned, the game primarily consists of songs from Oha Suta, but the game also features several Konami Originals, such as “Cutie Chaser (Morning Mix)”, “Brilliant 2U”, “Keep On Movin'” and “Make a Jam!”.

The core game-play involves the player moving his or her feet to a set pattern, stepping in time to the general rhythm or beat of a song. Arrows are divided by 1/4 notes, 1/8 notes, and so on (with differing color schemes for each), up to about 1/32 notes. During normal game play, arrows scroll upwards from the bottom of the screen and pass over a set of stationary arrows near the top (referred to as the “guide arrows” or “receptors”, officially known as the Step Zone).

When the scrolling arrows overlap the stationary ones, the player must step on the corresponding arrows on the dance platform, and the player is given a judgement for their accuracy (Marvelous, Perfect, Great, Good, Almost (close miss), Boo (complete miss)). Longer green and yellow arrows referred to as “freeze arrows” must be held down for their entire length, either producing a “O.K.” if successful, or a “N.G.” (no good) if not. Dance Dance Revolution X contains songs with Shock Arrows, walls of arrows with lightning effects which must be avoided, which are scored in the same way as Freezes (O.K./N.G.). If they are stepped on, a N.G. is awarded, the life-bar decreases, and the steps become hidden for a short period of time. (more…)

World Soccer Winning Eleven (also known as Goal Storm in the export version) is the first game in the acclaimed Pro Evolution Soccer series. All of the World Cup games are represented in World Soccer Winning Eleven, and respond according to actual team performance. For example, Brazil is much better than, say, Canada. The game looks good, even if the players are a bit simply designed. The control is solid and relatively intuitive, the only major problem being the placement of the defensive tackle and goal shot on the same button. There’s even the obligatory announcer, calling plays and adding that much heralded element of realism to the game, very popular in today’s sports games.

WorldSoccerWinningEleven-01eManufacturer’s description:
Yeah!. It’s just another polygon soccer game. Right, when you’re in the championship game, and when the cup is within reach, and you’re panting and sweating in the middle of the second half and you’re down by one-facing one of the toughest goalies in the free world, no less-and your star striker gets slapped with a red card, just try telling yourself “it’s just a polygon soccer game”. See how well that settles your nerves.
– Superior AI and realistic soccer play.
– Programmable offensive/defensive strategies.
– 3D polygonal characters.

It’s just the best #%$@! polygon soccer game YOU’VE ever played.
