Excerpt: There are many dancing games on the market, with many of them being quite entertaining and successful. If I’m honest with you, I’m not a very good dancer, so I end up being quite proud when I bust out a robotic-esk dance move, making me think in my mind that I am the best dancer on the floor. After playing rival dancing games such as Dance Central and Just Dance I have managed to adapt to the gaming side of the dance floor and have found myself to enjoy dancing titles.
Conclusion: Out of the few dance games I’ve had the opportunity to play on; I’d definitely say this was by far the hardest. For a party game everyone can play on and probably all enjoy, I would suggest looking elsewhere. But for those who enjoy dancing and are pretty good at it, the strong multiplayer option in Get Up And Dance is definitely the way forward. For all those wannabe dance stars, this is the game to be playing.
Pros: Lots of multiplayer option. Good list of Songs. Inclusion of a career mode is a great inclusion.
Cons: Even the one star songs are unforgiving. Rehearsal is probably a waste of time.
Summary: The market is bloated with dancing games right now and it's hard to care about which one to buy. This might play into Get Up and Dance's hands as it's pretty average and could fulfill a wide variety of party game needs. Those with a more serious interest in dancing games might want to look elsewhere for a title with a larger selection of tracks like Just Dance 3 or a much more specific taste, like The Black Eyed Peas Experience.
Excerpt: Get Up and Dance is set to give enthusiastic PS3 and Wii party-goers a whole new range of dancing diversions. By including group play, is this the start of re-enacting Glee in the living room?..
Conclusion: „Get Up and Dance“ erfindet das Genre wahrlich nicht neu und kupfert große Teile von dem Ubisoft-Hit ab. Dennoch ist dies ein komplettes Tanzspiel, das zwar eine etwas kleine Auswahl an Liedern hat, aber durch die verschiedenen Modi durchaus Spaß machen kann.
