    Step Rhythm to Beyond the Next Level.

    Rated on July 17, 2006 by discobiscuits0

    Step aside, DDR. In the Groove provides a sense of uniqueness to almost every aspect of the rhythm-based games. The first thing I noticed were the graphics. The colors of everything just work tog...

    Indie dancing games suck. . .<br /> This game should be called &quot;In The Dork&quot;

    Rated on February 06, 2007 by 2deluxe

    Good: Lots of challenging step patterns that the hardcore folk will enjoy. Bad: Nerd factor through the roof; lame American style song selection; Kyle Ward is an untalented artist (just like fellow...

    Great Dancing Game...Better than DDR

    Rated on February 11, 2006 by corbaddusa

    In the Groove is a dancing game where you have to hit the arrows with your feet when they pass over the cue bar. It has a great song selection, from rap to classical. BPM ranges from about 100-320. ...

    DDR is high school. ITG is College.

    Rated on June 26, 2005 by Gear-Box

    It's certainly full of changes, but it's not revolutionizing anything but player's attitudes.

    Rated on June 30, 2005 by goodcooljas

    So here it is, the game that was supposed to revolutionize the dancing video game genre which is currently controled by Konami. While the game certainly is different from the acclaimed Dance Dance Re...

    One of the best music/rhythm games out there.

    Rated on March 10, 2006 by maxerAA

    If you didn't know, ITG is just like DDR. you have 4 arrows at the top of the screen, and you have to hit arrows as they come up. DDR started this, and ITG made it better. I already described the...
