The march towards Christmas always brings out some of the biggest titles of the year. Case in point - Just Dance 3. That is right Ubisoft has grown this series into its third iteration. Family Friendly Gaming is so happy to have received a reviewable copy on the Xbox 360 (this game is also on the Wii and Playstation 3). It is fantastic to see this franchise move from a Wii exclusive to the Kinect and Move as well. Owners of those systems can now enjoy this awesome franchise.

I remember the first time I heard of the Just Dance franchise. I was at E3 at Nintendo's press conference. They were announcing the second game, and I realized we had missed the first one. Talked to some people, and we were reviewing Just Dance. Just Dance 2 improved upon the franchise, and there have been some side games like Just Dance Kids. Just Dance 3 is the meat and potatoes of the franchise and it brings it. I am personally sold on the Kinect and believe it is the best version of Just Dance 3. We can debate that if you like.

Ubisoft has done some really fun things with Just Dance 3. First off there are numerous dancers with all kinds of awesome visual effects. I love the golden moves personally. Earning stars to unlock additional songs brings an interesting twist. There are songs that can switch dancers during the song. This is a really cool effect. Some of the moves in Just Dance 3 could be considered suggestive. So bear in mind you may be moving (thanks to this game) in ways you have not done so in years. Or in some of our cases - never moved that way before. The dancers features are still whited out.

The music, the music, the music. How you react to Just Dance 3 all depends on the music. I found quite a few songs in Just Dance 3 that I enjoyed listening to, and dancing to. Ubisoft has a very nice mix in this home console game. There are songs ranging from all kinds of artists and all kinds of eras. I did not recognize any of the main songs in Just Dance 3 as being any form of Christian. After a gospel song in the Just Dance Summer Party this is a mild let down.

There are also an array of lyrics in Just Dance 3 that portray various opinions on different topics. I know that sounds rather vague. But I can think of no other way of explaining it. Different artists are relaying different opinions in the songs in Just Dance 3. Some of them you may agree with, and others you may disagree with. My suggestion is to check the song list and try and make a determination for yourself. There are songs in Just Dance 3 I like, and some I can not stand.

Let us start with the basics okay. Just Dance 3 includes over forty songs in it. You can then download more if you choose to purchase them. Up to four family members can dance together thanks to Just Dance 3. I would suggest being careful when swinging limbs around. I would hate to hear about a Kinect, Wii, or Move injury. There are leaderboards, and numerous songs to unlock. I feel that Just Dance 3 is worth the price tag. If you liked either of the first two, you will enjoy the third one.

One of the coolest features of Just Dance 3 is you can create your very own dances. That is right. You can decide what works well in terms of dancing. I was nervous at first when playing Just Dance 3. I was not sure how intense this game would be in terms of having me get the moves just right. Just Dance 3 is very forgiving, and kind. I found myself exhausted in more than one song. Just Dance 3 is a major work out. But it is a work out that puts a smile on your face. Well at least I was smiling - when I was done panting.

The most important lesson in Just Dance 3 is to get off the couch and get some exercise. I know some people in life that could use that lesson. Many Americans could learn this lesson. Sitting around in front of screens and eating is a danger to your health. Now if you are really over weight I would say start slow. Just Dance 3 can help you become healthier. It was a real pleasure for me to be able to play and review Just Dance 3. This game is one of the top tier titles we have reviewed this year.
