Great Game, Missing Promised Features
Michael Jackson Experience 3D is an interesting game. Ubisoft created an entirely different music game mechanic in their swipe system. As you play the game, you slowly improve a little MJ statue with your performance points, in turn unlocking more songs, and difficulty. By completing the objectives for different songs you unlock background features like dancers, special lighting, and you unlock gloves and alternative outfits. Gloves do special things, like 2x your score, erase missed swipes (which is usually the COMs fault anyways -_-) and give extra PERFECTS. The timing of your swipes gives you a PERFECT, GREAT, OK, BAD, or MISS score. Also you unlock On-Demand Performance, when the COM plays the song for you, which I think is there excuse for not just including a 3D version of the original music video.
There are exclusions of songs that should be there like You Rock My World, Wanna Be Startin Something, and Jam. My biggest complaint is that before its release, Ubi told of an online dance battle system. Now released, the game DOES NOT HAVE IT. But the stupid Vita version does. PATCH THE GAME UBI! PATCH IT!
Also, there is one thing I haven't unlocked...What is it? The internet leaves no clues...
