Michael Jackson The Experience
Name a better dancing game for the Wii
So if anyone has noticed, this is a Just Dance installment. Even if they say it's not you can look at it and tell. And as far as not liking Just Dance goes, I can understand why. I was one of those people. But considering the dancing rhythms game out there for the Wii, Just Dance and this game are probably the best fit.
The graphics are colorful but visually easy on the eyes (not as ugly as Boogie). Sure they might be too bright but it's fits the theme.
The song selection of course will be great (which I we know will surpass that of a DDR or any other game out there). Having a collection of great MJ hits to dance to isn't probably a new idea, but is a good one.
Ubisoft has made quality work. Add to the fact that because MJ was a performer the difficultly of dancing will range from easy to hard. This will be a great improvement on JD, which had some actual nice songs, hidden jewels if you will.
You might easily pin this as something like what was done with the Beatles and Rock Band. But like that game this is a good gift for any fan, or casual gamer who enjoys the music.
It's an ok game.
The game itself is good if you're a big Micheal Jackson fan. The dance moves are usually the same as in the videos, also you can unlock little dance videos from MJ's choreographers, or people who just downright danced for the game. What I always find funny is looking at the legs of the in game dancers because those were videotaped with photoshopped glow around it. What I honestly dislike is, even if you do get the gold move the game won't recognize it. As well as the fact that in general the choreography is pretty hard. Over all an ok game.
Perfect MJ Tribute
Got the game on the day the preorder shipped, and I am thoroughly pleased with the game.
It plays well, albeit a bit too reliant on perfect motions, and really gets you into it.
The song selection is vast, and the entertainment value is high.
You get to pick whether you want to follow MJ's choreography, or the back up dancers, and it gives you a difficult for both.
The only real thing I didn't like about this game was it's lack of a tutorial. There is no way to learn how to play, other than simply playing. You catch on fast, but it would have been nice to have one.
All in all, the game is a good one, and I will be playing it for a long time, I'm sure.
I love this game
this game is everything i wanted and more. It has all his great hits and famous moves. I had so much fun just singing along with the songs and feeling like i was making my own music video. If u like Michael Jackson you will like this game. As a MJ fan i recommend this to anyone. Yea it is made by the same ppl as just dance but i like it way better. you can choose to be either the back dancer, MJ, dance partner with their own difficulty. The dancing is not as easy as it looks sometimes and very fun. As for the background and graphics they are amazing very interesting its like being in the music video. I'm so addicted now
Wii love to Just Dance to MJ!
This game is awesome in so many ways. Sure does make you sweat though if you really get into it. Only reason I gave the gameplay a 9 is because it's hard lol. MJ is not easy to mimic lol... But his song choice is nice..Love the different options, some songs you can be MJ himself or you can be the backup dancer, some songs are Duo's, again you have a choice who you want to be. I have to say my favourite MJ song is beat it and I totally rock the dance for that song!
If you are a huge MJ fan this game is for you. I been a huge MJ fan since I was a kid and can totally appreciate this game and what it's worth.
Dont judge a game by its cover!
Ok when i saw the commercial for this game I was like, who would play that dumb game.(Im a big MJ Fan tho) So anyways my cousins got the game when I went over their house that weekend. So I played the game and I was HOOKED! We played for 5 hours. It is so fun! Especially with other people. I got the game for Christmas and ever since I i opened it ive been playing it. It is so fun. The only thing is make sure you have a big area to play because they will not count the moves or you can get and ok intsead of and excellent. My best is Thriller. I got 5 stars and an 11465!!!!!!! Get at me lol!!!!!
Worth The Money
I received this game as a Christmas gift. I swear, it is the best money my friend ever spent on me!! I play a few times a week as a great exercise routine. I haven't gotten my husband to do try it yet, but I keep trying. I took it to a friends to just try and she bought one about a week later. Then she calls and has me come over and play so she can kick my butt!! Didn't happen, she only won two, but it was so much fun it didn't really matter!! Any one who likes Michael Jackson songs, will love this game!! Highly recommended!!
I LOVE THIS GAME
I bought this game because I love Michael Jackson and I fell in love with this game...I had a baby 14 months ago and was having a hard time losing weight, I lost 6 inches since Christmas dancing with this game. You can just stand there and move the controller and get perfects, but what fun is that?!!!!!...Excellent work out...my kids and I enjoy playing this game daily...Quick warning, if you have not danced or moved, I suggest you stretch beforehand or you will be very sore the next day.
Great Party or Family Game...
My sister got this game for Christmas and brought it up to my house. We had my whole family playing it. It was so much fun. I had to go out and buy my own so I could play it more. This game is a lot of fun. There are a lot of songs however I wish there were more, or at least be able to unlock songs. If you can unlock songs then I just haven't yet. Yes sometimes you have to ask which one is Michael, but hey they did their best. It is a great game and will give you a work out.
I had the opportunity to try the game out at New York Comic Con 2010. It was easily one of the best exhibits on the floor and constantly had a crowd watching people dancing on the stage. While the XBox and PS3 will support higher resolution graphics, I don't think it's necessary to enjoy the game. It takes a little time to figure out what some of the movements are supposed to be, but the Wii tracked pretty well and the overall design is a big jump from Just Dance.
