Just Dance 2023





Just Dance 2023 


You guys know me. I am open, honest and transparent. My reviews are all about my experiences. I am very disappointed with Just Dance 2023. I need to give you guys some background here. I found out about Just Dance when Just Dance 2 was released. I started with Just Dance and have played every single Just Dance game since then. We have recorded Just Dance videos for our YouTube channel for over a decade now. Aside from the original Just Dance we have used the Kinect sensor on the Xbox 360 or Xbox One. The Wii Remote controls on Just Dance were not always accurate.

Just Dance 2023 comes out and we are shocked to find out that Kinect support has been dropped. Just Dance 2023 plays on the Nintendo Switch, Playstation 5, and Xbox Series X. We were given a code for Xbox Series X and the phone had all kinds of connection glitches. So we requested a code for the Nintendo Switch and our contacts at Ubisoft provided that. They also gave us a code for the Playstation 5 but we never redeemed it. I did some research and found that the camera does not work so well on the PS5. So it was another use your phone as a controller. Why can’t we use controllers?

On the Nintendo Switch one controller is used and held in the players right hand. I am baffled as to why two controllers were not used for the control scheme. We have tested all kinds of theories and cannot figure out why the Nintendo Switch does not score properly. We have recorded numerous videos of the songs of Just Dance 2023 and it shows me doing the moves properly and getting one to two stars. Some songs score superstar on the first try. Others took me three to five tries to get the normal five star score. It has been an extremely frustrating experience.

There are only a couple of Kids songs in Just Dance 2023 and no real official Kids section. This is another major bummer with Just Dance 2023. There are songs with content families will find offensive. There are also some dancers that will offend many families. What is more offensive is the game not scoring properly when the moves are done perfectly. On the Kinect sensor I would score five stars to megastars the first time I ever saw a song on the super majority of songs. I am unable to duplicate that one Just Dance 2023. I am not a big fan of the menu layout in Just Dance 2023 either.

The graphics in Just Dance 2023 are neat. The music is clear. There are plenty of good exercise moves to do within Just Dance 2023. There is an exercise mode within Just Dance 2023 as well. There is a storyline within some of the songs in Just Dance 2023. These dancers go through portals to meet, dance battle, and recruit other dancers. I found the whole thing pretty cool and looked for it while I played Just Dance 2023.

Just Dance 2023 wants to connect to Ubisoft servers in order to play the game. Having to be online might be why many of the songs do not score accurately. The songs can be downloaded to the local device. We deleted all kinds of content and downloaded the songs to the Xbox Series X and Nintendo Switch. The thing is we could not find a way to force the game to let us use the offline versions of the songs. I reached out to Ubisoft support a month ago and have still not heard back. Three songs also get an error when we try to play them and will not load. There are no real physical copies of this game. The cases come with a download code not a disc or cartridge.
