Britney's Dance Beat
Britney's Dance Beat is a one or two player music video game featuring songs and video appearances by Britney Spears. The story is that players must pass "auditions" to tour as Spears' dancers.
Gameplay involves pressing buttons in time with music. Symbols for buttons are arranged in a circle, resembling a clock dial. A pointer sweeps around the dial, indicating when to press each button.
The game contains five songs: "...Baby One More Time", "Oops!... I Did It Again", "Stronger", "Overprotected" and "I'm a Slave 4 U". Successful play is rewarded with "backstage passes" which unlocks features such as backstage video footage of Britney.
There's also a video vault. When you complete auditions you get backstage passes to unlock 360 immersive videos and behind the scenes footage.
The game also includes various remixes during behind the scenes footage, menus, and credits. It also has photoshoots during credits.
Versions of the game were released for Game Boy Advance on March 25, 2002, PlayStation 2 on May 8, 2002, andPC on June 19, 2002.
Reviews of the game are average. GameRankings and Metacritic gave it a score of 57.75% and 53 out of 100 for the GBA version, 63.29% and 63 out of 100 for the PS2 version, and 18% and 24 out of 100 for the PC version.
Entertainment Weekly gave the PS2 version a B+ and stated that "the game is just cheesy enough to make you stop, look, and bust out dancing." The Cincinnati Enquirer gave it a positive review and said of the game, "There's nothing groundbreaking about it, but in some ways, that's what keeps the game fun." However, Maxim gave the same console version a score of four out of ten and called it "a mindless version of 'Simon Says' to the masterful beats of 'Oops!... I Did It Again.'"
