Thanks to Digital Praise for giving us this game to review!
Top Hits is the second expansion pack designed for the Dance Praise 2 engine. It offers 35 new songs and a new arcade game. It’s nice that the original Dance Praise can play the new tracks from this expansion, though you’ll miss out on the Rock ‘n Block game.

How to play

As the music plays, arrows trickle down the screen. As they line up with the arrow grid on the bottom, you have to press the corresponding arrow on the dance pad. As you play on harder difficulty levels, the number of arrows and complexity increases. The arrow grid on the bottom shrinks as well, requiring you to be more accurate.

There’s a new game mode called Rock ‘n Block, in this game you have to use the dance pad to activate shields surrounding your base. You have to protect your base from asteroids. There is some protection but a direct hit to the base will end your game.

Graphics

The expansion pack does not enhance or change the graphics of the Dance Praise 2 engine. The max resolution this game supports is still 1024x768; it looks decent being stretched by my wide screen monitor.

Sound

The music selection is great; there’s a wide variety of music styles. The sound quality is good and the announcer isn’t annoying, so that’s a plus. Rock n’ Block didn’t have earth shattering sound effects, it just played music from the game in the background.

Stability

I have not run into any problems or glitches playing this game. If you want to play Dance Praise 1 songs/expansions it will prompt you for the CD which is a bit annoying.

Appropriateness

This is a game that has God honoring songs; I find no fault here. It’s a great game for families, churches and youth groups.

Final Thoughts


This expansion adds over thirty songs to your collection. The song selection is great and there are many good artists here. There’s a wide variety of music genres and there’s something to please everyone. The asking price of $24.99 is fair. The Rock ‘n Block game is probably my least favorite of the arcade add-ins. The dance steps weren’t super challenging so hardcore DDR players may be disappointed. This is a good addition for the casual player who owns either Dance Praise 1 or 2.

Final Score
Gameplay: 14/20
Graphics: 8/10
Sound: 8/10
Stability: 5/5
Interface: 3/5
Appropriateness: 50/50
Overall: 88%
