Christmas is coming:
There are many telltale signs that Christmas is just around the corner; TV shows suddenly become bombarded with adverts for this year’s must have toys, shopping centres and stores start blasting out Christmas music and Ubisoft release their annual Just Dance game.
So far all have been achieved but in this review we forget the cheesy Christmas signs and put all of our effort into "Just Dance 4" on the Nintendo Wii to see if the game brings anything new to the series or if it proves to be a case of seen it, done it one too many times.
Time to dance ... again!
I am sure by now that all gamers must have heard of the Just Dance series but if you haven’t (why not?) the games started out on the Nintendo Wii in 2009 and have proved to be the biggest hit on the console as players get the chance to get their groove on to a number of modern and classic songs which has proven to be a family and party favourite.
In the previous three games in the series there has been gradual drip feed of new inclusions but this has led me to wonder if there was anything left that could have been added to freshen things up a little or if Just Dance 4 simply felt like an add on of new songs.
Just Dance 4 does feature a couple of new things in the form of a slightly expanded Just Sweat mode which comes complete with a calorie counter and intensity tracker that will prove to be something novel for those who play the game for a workout rather than for fun. Secondly the game features a new battle mode which enables players to play against each other over five rounds of dances battles with specially choreographed songs and this mode is pretty neat and will undoubtedly be where the main new fun lies.
Let’s face it really the Just Dance games are not really about the having a vast array of game modes providing they have a nice variety of songs at your disposal and Just Dance 4 certainly has these in abundance with many different genres featured which will ensure that there is plenty to get to grips with for the relatively low price which the game sells for. Even if you forget the game modes and look at how much song packs for other games sell for as DLC then taking all things into consideration Just Dance 4 proves pretty decent value.
