Michael Jackson: The Experience HD review
24 June 2012
Excerpt: Millions of you bought Michael Jackson: The Experience and probably realized, all too quickly, that it’s really hard to mimic the King of Pop’s moves. Really, really hard. Maybe you got the zombie part from Thriller down to a science, and maybe you’re kicking with the correct leg, but a whole MJ routine? Well, some things are better left to professionals.
Pros: Seeing famous videos recreated in CG, Attention to detail in MJ’s outfits and choreography, Largely familiar song list
Cons: Using both hands for harder levels, Only fifteen songs?, Seriously, fifteen?!
Conclusion: A solid rhythm game and probably one of the best to ever be on a handheld, Michael Jackson the Experience is a great offer for fans of music games or if you just love yourself some classic Michael Jackson songs. The audience may be limited because of the single artist in the game but if you can appreciate Jackson’s music or just love any music game than Michael Jackson the Experience HD is definitely worth checking out.
Excerpt: Michael Jackson: The Experience was released in 2010 in the wake of the singer's untimely death. It has been on virtually every platform now with the release of a Vita version at launch. Ubisoft always pushes a lot of titles out at a system launch and the PlayStation Vita is no different. While this version is better than previous attempts, it still falls short.
Excerpt: A rhythm action game based on the career of Michael Jackson has always seemed like a no-brainer. Jacko was no stranger to the realm of gaming, of course, having made plenty of contributions...
Pros: + Controls work pretty well, + Songs in the game are great
Cons: Only 15 available songs, Very limited game modes
Conclusion: With that being said, Michael Jackson: The Experience is not a bad game. It offers Michael Jackson fans some fun in listening to, and tapping along with, some of Jackson’s greatest hits. Whether or not you will like this game will depend on what you are expecting to get out of this title. If you want a full-featured, extensive experience with a large selection of songs to play, then the console version is definitely for you.
Excerpt: is an engaging experience as far as it goes, there’s just not enough of it. Anyone who is happy that there are only 15 songs probably shouldn’t be buying the game in the first place, and fans who totally dig what Ubisoft has done here will probably wish for two or three times the number of selections.
Conclusion: Yes, this all sounds very negative, but when compared to the same title on the PS3 for example, it barely deserves to be called the same game. Fortunately it is available at a lower price than many games, and is actually a rather clever way of using a touchscreen for a music/rhythm game, but there isn’t much more too it. It’s not a title I will never pick up again.
Pros: The MJ catalogue. Clever use of touchscreen.
Cons: Small set list. Feels a little like a high budget iPhone game.
