I was given the opportunity to review Just Dance 4 this month! I am a huge fan of dance games. I think I own about all of them and I was so excited when I found out I was going to have a chance to review this game! The platform I play on is the Xbox 360 through the Kinect. The game is also available on Playstation and Wii.
I found starting the game relatively easy. I did download the update to make navigation a little easier. I actually really liked how you used a hand to navigate through the songs. To just pick a song you move your hand forward like your pushing a button. It is much easier than waiting for a circle to fill up like most Kinect games.
This by far is my favorite of all the Just Dance games. Ubisoft seems to improve this game every year.
Here are some of my favorite new features:
- I think it to so fun they record most of your dance to play back at the end. It is so hilarious to watch what you or others really look like while you are dancing!!
- I really like how you can pick your dancer at the beginning of a dance. Your not stuck being the same dancer in an ensemble number. There is also no confusion of what dancer you are suppose to follow like there was in past games.
- I loved the wheel of winners! The first time I ended up with a mash-up that included some dancers from past Just Dance games and the second time I got a new song!
- There are some great song choices. The artists range from Flo Rida to Elvis Presley. There is really something for everyone.
- Where I think the Just Dance games really shine is with it’s ensemble dance numbers. They are so fun to do with another player. I can’t wait to try this game out with some of my friends that are coming over for Thanksgiving!
- The only thing that I really did not like about this game was the Just Sweat mode. I was kind of disappointed that you couldn’t pick your songs and they pick them for you. I think I will just stick to the Just Dance mode when I work out.
Overall, I had such a great time playing Just Dance 4. My favorite dance number by far was We No Speak Americana! It was such a fun dance! I can’t wait to see some of my friends bust out those move this Thanksgiving!! Have you tried Just Dance 4 yet? What’s your favorite dance??
