Just Dance (Wii)
Advantages: Fun, dance and good music
Disadvantages: You do need a fair bit of room for more than one player
The Wii is already known as a console that brings family and friends together, and opens the gaming experience to more than just hardcore gamers. Several "party" games like Wii Sports, Wii Fit and others do just that and turn an ordinary evening into something fun. Just Dance does this as well.
I bought this just before Christmas and found it was quite hard to find. It was one of the Christmas hot buys - seemingly everyone wanted it. Lots of people at work were all talking about it. I had to buy it. Every year since we've had it the Wii has been a big part of Christmas and this year was no exception.
Just Dance is a dancing game. Load the disc in the drive and click through the easy menu system using the Wii-mote to get to all the different songs you can dance to. There is a wide range of genres of music, including some older tracks from the seventies all the way up to the latest contemporary tunes from the likes of Kylie Minogue and Calvin Harris.
The aim is to mimic the dance routine the figure on the screen performs. Up to four people can play at once, as long as they have a Wii-mote - each gets a different colour and icon to identify them. Cue lots of shaking, arm-moving and hip-wiggling, and ultimately lots of laughs. I think this game does appeal more to women, but I know of a few men that have had a go at it and have really enjoyed it. I certainly love it.
The songs are rated for the difficulty of the routine and the level of exertion on a star system. Three stars is the maximum for both and there is a good mix of all levels, from beginners up to something that looks like an aerobic workout!
It can be difficult sometimes for a small living room. We had two Wii-motes and sometimes the actions wouldn't register because of obstructions. And you need quite a bit of room to do the dance routines. On the whole though I think this is a great game that will give you a good workout as well as a real laugh. Perfect for a girl's night in OR a gathering of friends. I love this game.
Summary: Great dance game and evening in
