Conclusion: but it seems like they are rarely animated or have special effects like they do in this title. The second thing is the music mix. The games that you dance to, for me, were a great mix of songs that I knew, songs that I had at least heard once and songs that were new to me. The songs also feature great dance choreography with (where possible) a setting that relates to the song. For example, I love the song “Rasputin” by Boney M.
Excerpt: Just Dance 2 will make you look like a tit. Especially if you're drunk, though this is exactly what most people will need to be in order to even contemplate having a go. In the sobering light of the morning it's far too hard to get somebody willing to step up as your dance partner: the average member of our team would rather have a gurning image of Alan Sugar tattooed painfully onto their stomach, for instance.
Better than original, but lots of suggestive songs, moves.

Summary: Parents need to know that this game is rated "Everyone 10+" because it contains some suggestive lyrics (mostly sexual in nature) and some sexy imagery, including silhouettes that stroke their bodies, gyrate their hips and buttocks, and so on. In order to play the game, children will need to imitate these moves and will be exposed to the suggestive lyrics. Overall, though, this is one of the tamer music games when it comes to controversial content.
Conclusion: Having not had an opportunity to play through the first game, I didn’t know what to expect from Just Dance 2. I’m not a dancer, and I generally don’t enjoy games that require me to flail wildly with the Wii Remote. Just Dance 2, however, is just plain fun. The controls aren’t exacting enough to elevate the experience to Elite Beat Agents status, but in a group setting, Just Dance 2 has a good vibe that’s contagious.
Excerpt: Last year Ubisoft dropped a bomb on us in the form of the original Just Dance , a game so simple yet so, so fun. All you did was dance, there was no rhyme or reason to it, you just did it and it was a blast. Now the game wasn’t perfect, heck it was far from perfect, the controls weren’t responsive, the graphics we’re… shocking and once you had enjoyed all the tracks that was it, nothing more to see here, but it was still fun, a rare example of a game being better than...
Excerpt: was the epitome of what the Wii's motion controls allowed gaming to become, where you could just move around and play the game (as the Kinect looks to expand upon on the XBox 360.) The reaction from Wii owners was overwhelmingly positive, moving over 4 million copies of the game, while the reaction from the gaming press was rather negative, viewing it as yet another thin casual title for the Wii without any of depth or features that would make it a quality game.
Excerpt: A realisation that may come as a shock to much newer players in the gaming world: games are meant to be fun. That’s right, not necessarily the most realistic looking, not the smoothest running, not the most cinematic, but the most fun. Why would I preface a review with such a strange and out of character statement for me?
