While Harmonix is “Centralizing” their fan base, Ubisoft is continuing to keep every single gamer in the mood to groove to the songs that rocks the living room. Just Dance is virtually on every platform, including “Just Dance Now” releasing to mobile devices so you can dance anywhere.
Just Dance is comfortably the number one dance game worldwide, diminishing the likes of Dance Central, Dance Paradise and others. And to think we thought Dance, Dance Revolution was the greatest game ever at one point.
Just Dance 2015 embodies the same concept as all of its previous installments. The player simply follows the onscreen cue cards displaying which move to perform whether you playing alone or as a group.
Just Dance has always provided some of the most creative visuals to represent each song title. And the performers equally are the most energetic group of individuals you’ll find anywhere.
To start, you’ll choose your dancer card that best represents you. Then, it’s on to the Just Dance wall where you can pick what song you’re ready to dance to. As you have a blast dancing and following the choreographers, you will earn and unlock new items such as dancer cards, new modes and more.
Introduced in Just Dance 2014, with a microphone you can also perform karaoke and sing along to your favorite tunes, earning additional Mojo points based on accuracy.
Just Dance 2015 also includes Community Remixes that allows you to perform with different personalities from all around the world. By using your camera and uploading your video online, the team may choose a portion of your performance to enhance the experience.
A few other modes include the challenger mode where you perform against friends and World Dance Floor where players play through a pre-chosen playlist provided by the Just Dance team.
As always, Just Dance provides you with an astounding soundtrack that includes Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Ylvis, Maroon 5 and so much more. Even kids will dance like there’s no tomorrow as Disney’s Frozen biggest song “Let it Go” by Idina Menzel is also part of the lineup.
Just Dance is one of those games that grow on you. It provides a great experience for the family, supported by dynamic new features that keep you interacting online and offline. Just Dance 2015 did it again.
