Just Dance: Just Okay

For those of you who liked the dancing part of Raving Rabbids, here comes Just Dance where you - er, just dance to the tune of 32 songs.
Each song has your avatar facing you and performing dance steps, which you match.
It takes a while to get used to the controls, but it's not that hard. I got a good score on most of the 32 songs available. The trick is to think that the person on screen is your reflection, and get as close as you can to matching their movements as possible; if you’re off by a bit, the game will give you some slack.
Besides, the game gives you all 32 songs up front, so there’s no need to unlock anything, and it’s great as a party game with three other players.
You can play a single song; a best of tournament where it’s a best of 3, 5, 7 or 10 songs; a “Red Light, Green Light” version or the “Last one standing”: last one makes a mistake wins.
So how’s the songs? Well, they’re not the latest chart toppers, but I like the selection from “Eye of the Tiger” to “Fame” to Acceptable in the 80s” to “Le Freak”
But this game has problems. First off, there’s no love for the single player; it’s play it party style or not at all.
The game has trouble recognizing some movements and the cord between the Wiimote and Nunchuck gets in the way a lot.
The thing that will turn a lot of players off is this game has little presentation to it; it’s about as bland as you can get. You get the songs, you dance to the songs, and you repeat.
But if you like dancing with friends at a party, then you should give Just Dance a try. RENT IT.

This game was a lot of fun! I liked how the only thing needed was the wii controller! Also, it was a fun family game that my whole family could play and it was easy to explain and even the elders enjoyed it. I really liked the song section too!

This game or Dance studio in a box was awesome. It actually got all 4 of my children on their feet and moving around. They had a blast with it.
