Product Review: Just Dance 4

I think from my previous posts (here, here and here) it's fair to say I am a little bit of a fan of the Just Dance series of game so I was pretty darned excited to receive a copy of Just Dance 4 to review (along with a rather snazzy pair of t-shirts, one of them personalised with my name!).

If you're unfamiliar with the Just Dance games, it's a music video game where players are judged on their ability to mimic on-screen dancers performing a kick-ass routine to well-known songs.   In Just Dance 4 there is a new battle mode where you can challenge friends to a dance-off in six rounds of dance battles and there are four player dance routines making it the perfect choice for a party or when you have a gang of friends. A couple of drinks later and you think you're a superstar. 

I personally like the dance quests feature and the "mojo" that was introduced in the previous version of the game. The level of mojo depends on how well you did at the game and how many of  the six song challenges you managed to tick off. Once your mojo bar is filled you unlock rewards which is a real incentive to keep playing. Rewards include dance mash-ups and alternative choreography.

As I have mentioned on previous reviews, as well as being a fun game, it's also a great workout.  If like me you're a little exercise-shy and prefer something more fun then give it a try. A couple of dance routines and I'm panting. Who am I kidding, one go at the Blues Brothers and I'm gasping for water...Some of them are that energetic! You can use the Just Sweat mode as in previous versions but it has a great new added feature and you can see how many calories you have burned however I'm not sure how accurate this would be.

I love the majority of songs but there are a few on there I don't know, which could possibly be a sign of my maturing years and I do tend to skip past songs I don't know. It could just be me but I find it much harder to dance to a song that I am not familiar with so I stick to the better known ones like "What Makes You Beautiful" by One Direction, "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepson and "Moves Like Jagger" by Maroon 5 ft Christina Aguilera.  My personal favourite though? This one.

I'm actually quite good at it and now I have an aim to beat my own score every time! Whilst looking for that on You Tube I've just discovered the alternative choreography for this song and now I am DESPERATE to unlock it!

And I have to say, I pretty much rock at Hit 'Em Up Style. If I do say so myself.

As with all the previous Just Dance games, number four is fabulous fun and if you're looking for a good interactive game to play with family or friends this Christmas, you can't go wrong! 

I'm off to perfect my Las Ketchup moves now...
