On May 08, 2002, Britney Spears released the PlayStation 2 version of Britney's Dance Beat, which had been previously released for the Game Boy Advance in March. The PC version would be released on June 19 that year.

The PS2 version is an enhanced experience in every way from its predecessor, from the graphics, to the quality of the music, and the gameplay mechanics. It also contains footage from her music videos and voice acting provided by Britney herself. It was also the best rated out of the three versions, with 63.29% on GameRankings and 63/100 on Metacritic.

Story-wise, the goal of the game was also modified. As opposed to the GBA version where you had to help Britney prepare for her tour, it was now the player the one that was auditioning to become her backup dancer, having to defeat several other aspirants.

The blurb read:

She's young, beautiful and talented. Her dance moves are as hot as her songs. But only the best dancers can join Britney Spears on her world tour. See if you have what it takes to back her up!

  • Choose from a variety of dancers to represent your skills

NGL I have like 3 copies of this game for PS2 and one for PC. Like 5 years ago I was searching everywhere for it. Finally bought it online. Then immediately after doing that I find it everywhere now, even to this day. And I occasionally buy another one just because it was so hard to find for the longest time I didn’t ever want to be without at least one copy 😂

The nostalgia this gives me :gobaby_cheering_yes_yas_wow_proud:  I remember spending hours on my giant computer trying to unlock the little behind the scenes video of DWAD

Yessss only I had the PS2 version.

 

Am I the only one who thinks Britney doesn't sound much like herself in the game?

You were meant to play this with a dance mat but I’d sit for hours happily playing with the controller, good times 

Oooh, ahead of her timeney. I only ever played it with a controller.
