Just Dance 4 Wii review

Comment on site articles.

You've been asked four times now, it'd almost be rude not to

You know the bit in a generic cop drama where the hard-bitten inspector (you know the type: bald, angry, probably called 'Bootpunch', or something) stares the perp out over a bolted-down interview table and explains the facts? You know, spreads out the contents of a manila file, points threateningly at a grisly photo, maybe bellows a bit? That's this Just Dance 4 review. Imagine ONM with a trenchcoat on. Now you know we're serious.

Nice review, made me smile. Shame the game won't do the same...

Well considering i'm doomed to eventually have to play it at a party of some sort, it's heartening to know from the screenshot that i can drunkenly flail around to Rock Lobster. With an actual lobster/Fred Schneider/Fonzie hybrid throwing shapes on the screen.

That track's inclusion instantly makes this the best Just Dance ever. Granted, that's like saying the presence of corn made my latest poop the best ever, but it'll do for me.

So I have a blog now. Go read it, I'll get you a cuppa if you do.

70%? That's a little high for Just Dance, Joe.

Probably gonna pick up the WiiU version but good score, I've always enjoyed the Just Dance games and hopefully there will be some good songs to download until the inevitable Just Dance 5 comes out :)
Have an awesome day :D

I feel like I made my point fairly clear in the review, it's a good game on its own merits, but it's certainly not for everyone (including me).

Loopy, allow me to point you to a video I helped make for our Xbox sister publication. I'm on the left: http://youtu.be/8lSoupuFkLg NOW tell me I can't dance (actually don't, because I know it's true)

No, the original was a good game. Every game following that is nothing more than a DLC package passed off as a full retail game.

I see your point, but for me it's about intention and expectation. In a series that leads consumers to believe it's offering a true sequel, a rehash is a serious issue. In a series like Just Dance (or, in fact, almost all music-based series), this is exactly what consumers expect - the people buying Just Dance 4 are extremely unlikely to believe that they're buying something groundbreaking.

Why didn't they do just one Just Dance and you have the option of paying for more songs? Like all the Just Dance's rolled into one?

me personally, I have Just Dance 2. It's quite funny watching other people trying to dance. :D
