Rated 8 out of 10 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...
Rated 9 out of 10 by BeastDealer123 This game is a Thriller
I love this game I've played it for about a week and its A-mazing. Now first the gameplay, the songs are perfect for the 3DS. I'm really glad they put in Hollywood Tonight and some songs are difficult, especially Thriller on Expert I swear I open my mouth every time I start. Graphics are good, but if you're the person who likes PSP and isn't really into DS go for PSVita HD, but for some reason when you put it on 3D it looks better. Sound is perfect there's nothing wrong with it. I think this game will last quite a while because it gives something to do when you've played all the songs unlock challenges and gloves, outfits. But one thing if you don't like MJ that much don't buy it. You have to really like him to enjoy his game.
Rated 0 out of 10 by TheSmoothCriminal Needs some tuning in the motion.
I noticed that in the videos, MJs moves seemed to be kind of slow. MJ wasn't a normal dancer, his moves were perfectly timed and he didn't use any excess motion. I also wonder if the game will use the Elite Beat Agents style like on the DS version. I like the EBA style, but it would be nice to see use of the gyro or a karaoke mechanic. Another cool thing would be unlockable 3D music videos and Mii or create your own character. Ok, I asked for alot but also please put in some other songs and downloadable content like Michael and Legacy songs and new skins like J5 era Michael. Oh boy i'm needy.
Rated 0 out of 10 by john99999 GOOD or ok
I'm not a mj fan but I do like his songs but the motion seems kinda messed up. so I might want it or maybe not I'm not saying its bad its just not great its high OK maybe low good.
I like just dance more thought
Rated 0 out of 10 by RayTheUlitimateGamer I agree with dolphinboy
I LOVED this game on Wii even if the motion sensing wasn't accurate. Im looking forward to this one. Even though the regular DS and PSP versions were pretty weak, I don't think I can resist 3D MJ dancing!

This looks really good for the 3DS and Michael Jackson is now in 3D.
