Just Dance 2014 

 

A lot has been said about the Just Dance franchise over the years. It is nice to see Just Dance 2014 make it to the next gen, and so close to the launch of the new home consoles. Family Friendly Gaming was provided a reviewable copy on the Xbox One. This is the first game we played with the new Kinect sensor.

Let me start off by saying the Kinect sensor on the Xbox One is more sensitive. I did not score as well in the Xbox One version of Just Dance 2014. In fact the Xbox One version of Just Dance 2014 is more hardcore than the Xbox 360 version. You will need to step up your game to get those five stars.

You saw the video on the Family Friendly Gaming Youtube channel. You saw it on the front cover of Family Friendly Gaming issue Number seventy-five. You read the press releases in the news section of Family Friendly Gaming. You know the Xbox One version of Just Dance 2014 allows for six dancers in certain parts of the game.

Organized chaos is the best way I can describe six dancers in Just Dance 2014. Also it can be a painful experience for those in the middle. Certain arm movements, and leg movements for that matter can connect with the person beside you. Let alone trying to do that pyramid. Make sure you have enough room to have six people dance.

The plus side to Just Dance 2014 is you get some exercise. In fact I can go around five to six songs before I need a break. Modes like Mash Up are absolutely crazy. They keep families on their toes while dancing around. It is easy to share your videos with friends and JDTV (also Facebook and Twitter).

One thing I would like to see Just Dance offer going forward is the ability to lock out, or lock down certain songs. I know there has been a huge problem with lyrics in certain songs in Just Dance 2014. It would be nice to allow families to lock those songs out of their games.

The next gen version of Just Dance 2014 is not that different in terms of graphics, songs, and dance movements. Which is probably because it was released so close to the last generation versions of the game. Still if you have an Xbox One, and would like some exercise - Just Dance 2014 is the only dance game currently on the system.
