Just Dance

Just Dance is a rhythm/dancing game designed especially for the Wii. Unlike other dancing titles, there’s nodance pad controller required. Instead, up to four players can dance together at once, each using a Wii Remote to follow the choreographed motions of the silhouetted character on-screen. Just Dance features more than 30 licensed tracks covering a wide variety of musical genres, so players can step to the beat and learn real-life dance moves from music spanning the 80s, 90s, Disco, Rock and more. During play the lyrics scroll so players can also sing along to the beat. There are three different game play options in both the solo and multiplayer modes.

For gameplay there is NO button pushing.

You simply hold the Wiimote in your right hand and then dance around trying to mimic the character on screen. The controls are all movement based. However, sometimes the instructions scrolling across the bottom of the screen are out of sync with the dancer and at times the game’s ability to detect your motions and movements is poor. Overall the game is fun and gets you moving. This is a great multiplayer game so it can be used effectively with large groups or at family functions.

The ESRB rating for the game is “Everyone 10+” with two content descriptors. The first is “Mild Suggestive Themes” and the second descriptor is “Lyrics”.
