Just Dance (Wii)
Advantages: huge amounts of entertainment, cheap to purchase, burn calories
Disadvantages: could do with a better play list
I bought myself Just Dance when it first came out and had high expectation. I eagerly put it straight on the wii when it came in the post and I saw a few of my favourite songs come up. Its quite hard to get the hang of what the dancers are doing to begin with but onces you have played it a few times you can pre-empt the next moves. As the moves scroll to the left at the bottom of the screen.
You only need one wii controller but make sure you put it into your right hand because even though you are moving both arms as instructed to do so the computer is only picking up one arm. A little frustrating I think. I think wii should have built it so you have two controllers.
You then get scored on how well you are copying the iconic moves of the songs. By scoring Good, Bad and Very Great. A pink of blue depending whether you are player 1 or two fills up on the more points you score.
This game is best played as two players and you can compete against each other. But up to four players can participate.
There are 32 songs from the 70's, 80's, 90's and 00's. Some of the sings includes:
Katy Perry - Hot 'n' Cold
MC Hammer - U Can't Touch This
In The Style Of Irene Cara - Fame (cover)
Deee-Lite - Groove Is In The Heart
Technotronic - Pump Up The Jam
Cyndi Lauper - Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
Trashmen - Surfin' Bird
Blur - Girls & Boys
and there are many more to choose from...
On the bottom right hand corner of the screen the words come up, so you and your friends/family can sing along if you so wish while one of you is trying to dance along. Although you might find yourself laughing hysterically and not singing when watching your other half bust some of his best moves. Recording it on a camera is a must, so you can relive the enjoyment the next day and the other half can relive his embarrassing moves. hahah.
I was a bit dissapointed wih some of the songs though. Like with any other computer game there was about five songs which in my opinions where not worth dancing to. They were very old songs and some I didnt even recognise.
All members of the family with love this and even children will be able to pick up the moves and join it. We often play this when we have family or friends around.
Also helpful if you are planning on losing a few calories as this game will soon have you building up a sweat. Far better than spending a few hours running on one spot in the gym. You dont even feel like you are exercising. But you feel the aches of your bones the next day if you have had a good dance.
This game has got cheaper since the release of Just Dance 2 and retails around £14.99 and is sold in many places includes Amazon, Play, Game, HMV, many supermarkets to name a few.
I have given this four stars instead of five because if could have done with a few slightly better more upbeat songs. As a few of the songs are quite slow and pointless to dance to or unrecognisable.
I absolutely love it and cant wait to try Just Dance 2
Summary: Simply the best game of wii by far
