Summary: " Just Dance 4 " is a pretty hard game to sum up as it offers very little in terms of variety from any others in the series and seems to stick to the old saying; ‘If it ain’t broke, then don’t fix it’.
Excerpt: The Just Dance series has proven to be very popular indeed. Starting life on the Wii, the series soon found its way to other consoles when they received their own motion devices. It’s a series which has proven just how much fun making a fool of yourself can be. Being a safe sequel, Just Dance 4 doesn’t really cram in loads of fresh ideas, with much of its appeal being new songs to dance to.
Popular dancing game continues to entertain with new music.

Summary: Parents need to know Just Dance 4 is a music dance game where players follow moves presented by dancers on the screen. The songs feature some content that is mildly sexual and makes some references to alcohol. The "Comic Mischief" warning by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) is tied to a cartoon rabbit who rips off his clothes in a silly fashion. This game supports players dancing together around the same console.
Summary: Just Dance 4 has a nice selection of modes and offers up an entertaining time through a great soundtrack and stunning visuals. Motion control is decent for a game focused on fun and not tryouts to America’s Best Dance Crew , but could still use some work. It could use a tutorial section and online scoreboards, but the latter is not likely on the Wii due to the way Nintendo’s online infrastructure is set up (or, rather, that it doesn’t really exist).
Excerpt: You know the bit in a generic cop drama where the hard-bitten inspector (you know the type: bald, angry, probably called 'Bootpunch', or something) stares the perp out over a bolted-down interview table and explains the facts? You know, spreads out the contents of a manila file, points threateningly at a grisly photo, maybe bellows a bit? That's this Just Dance 4 review. Imagine ONM with a trenchcoat on. Now you know we're serious.
Summary: While Just Dance 4 may be just as entertaining as the last 3 entries to the series, the question still remains: has it improved greatly enough on the efforts of Just Dance 3 to warrant a sequel, or could it just be simply reproduced as new song DLC? The new modes just about justify the update, but Just Dance 4 remains a great-looking and fun game regardless, with only a few minor motion sensitivity and choreography troubles which hinder the all-round excellent dancing...
Summary: The Just Dance series stands alone as the go to part dance game across all consoles, making use of the various aspects of each console. Kinect on the 360, Move on the Playstation and the Wii remote on the Wii. The forth (main) entry in the series hopes to bring a load of new features, but is it worth the upgrade?
