My kids ages 17,8, & 7 love this game. It would be a blast for big families or parties. Has alot of MJ's popular songs and you get to learn all the famous dance moves!

Let me start by saying I am a 42-year old male. In other words, I grew up when Michael Jackson was at his peak. If you are in that demographic, you should really try this game. It is a blast to see how the developers have translated some of the great songs/videos from the 80s and then YOU get to be a part of them.
One down side, if you do not have a wireless mic/headset, the game is much more difficult to play at max volume. But, if you do, you can sing and dance right along with all your favorite Michael Jackson songs.
I gave the title an "8" because, as surprised as I was to see "Dirty Dianna" and "Heal The World" in the track list, I was disappointed that some of my other faves were not included like "Man In The Mirror." Also, had I not had a wireless headset, the fun would have been somewhat muted.
In short, lots of fun for anyone who has ever enjoyed Michael Jackson's music.

I try to think of myself as a decent dancer. I have rythm and I'm not the guy everyone stares at on the dance floor and says " does this guy realize what a tool he looks like?" That being said, MJ I am not, not even close not even a little, but most dances use or incorporate MJs moves so I thought it couldn't be that difficult to mimic some of the mans moves until I got this game.
Your arent mimicing his moves your doing them and there really isn't any help to do them at all in this game. There are practice videos but the teachers blow through the moves and they don't break it down so you need to be darn quick and remember every detail.
This game really is like your a backup dancer going on tour with the King Of Pop and its not forgiving at all. I enjoy Micheals music, I even thought I could do a couple of moves, hey we all moonwalk, but this game is out of my skill level. There isn't an option to change that by the way. The lower level is just more forgiving on you screwing up a move.
I recommend this to huge MJ fans, and to truly skilled dancers. My daughter enjoyed it (age 6) but thats because she got to use the mic. If your looking to use this for parties or a workout, I recommend Dance Central.
The only fun my family really had was laughing their butts off at dad looking like a fool. So it was worth the rental, if only for hurting my pride a little.
