Just Dance 4 (Video Game Review)
Just Dance 4 contains over 43 tracks to get the party started. The mix of music is outstanding and will apply to all generations of music lovers. Have you ever heard a song on the radio and thought I could dance to that? Well Just Dance 4 gives you the opportunity to do that from your very own home without having to go out to crowded bars and clubs. Gamers are told to watch the figure they see on their television and to follow them as if they were your own reflection. It is a lot easier said than done--especially for those have two left feet.
Pictograms flow across the bottom of the screen to show you what the next move will be which is really helpful. If you wonder how your doing then glance at the top and you will see your score bar. The graphics are superb and helpful with everything meshing together nicely. The Kinect works well with the video game and takes it to the next level. Just Dance 4 is perfect for novice to veteran players.
Just Dance 4 features impressive choreography with sparkling routines that make the player feel like they could have been a dancer in real life. Fans will enjoy the extreme mix of upbeat arm-pumping fun with the booty shaking excitement of other tracks. The songs have been designed to make the player truly feel they are out in the club and having a ball. It is a perfect chance for busy parents to get away after a hectic day at work. Pop in Just Dance 4 while the kids are out and dance your troubles away! I have found the title is a great stress reducer and would recommend it over yoga or meditation any day.
If you need some extra challenge then jump into some Dance Quests. They are there to add extra challenges to every song, and it also adds tons of replay value to the game. Players can grab a friend and go head-to-head in several multiplayer battles. You can also use the title to burn off those extra calories from the pecan pie at lunch with "Just Sweat". This mode actually features an actual calorie counter so you know exactly how long to dance to burn off that slice of pie!
Just Dance 4 beats out any other fitness title and is a perfect way to get in some fun exercise. The best part is the diversity of tracks which can fit any mood that you are in. The game even has a cheerleader workout which my daughter loves! Just Dance 4 has little to gripe about with its amazing soundtrack, vibrant graphics, fun gameplay and exciting multiplayer options. If you are looking for the perfect dance partner--then Just Dance 4 is for you! Now, time to get up and shake that booty on the dance floor! Let's go.
