Excerpt: I have never been a huge fan of dancing games because I believe that I’m not a very good dancer, but that all changed when Just Dance arrived at home and I gave it a try – now I consider myself a dancing superstar.
Excerpt: While dance based games have been popular for some time now, the arrival of Kinect has ushered in a new wave of dance game experiences. The full body motion sensor tracking changed the landscape, since your entire arsenal dance moves could now be judged, not just your feet or hand movements. Now one of the biggest names in dance games has arrived on Kinect, with the release of Just Dance 2014.
Excerpt: In Just Dance Kids 2014, the popular dance series lets younger players groove like a champion. Thanks to Kinect’s innovative tech, Just Dance Kids 2014 can get players up and dancing like never before. The game opens with a simple, effective tutorial that makes sure players of all ages can get into the mix, which was a wise inclusion. The players can dance solo, dance as a team, or use more simplified gestures instead of full body movement.
Excerpt: To our surprise, Just Dance 2014 marks the first time we’ve actually been impressed by the color-drenched, purposely nonsensical franchise. Sure, we’ve enjoyed the mindless fun of the previous incarnations, but JD2014 ’s incorporation of online multiplayer, karaoke, and a stronger fitness angle transforms that guilty pleasure into an unexpectedly well-rounded experience.
Pros: + Thoughtful inclusion of new features like online multiplayer and karaoke., + Alternative choreography can both surprise and challenge.
Cons: ? Did the game’s dancers really wear those animal costumes?
Conclusion: Just Dance 2014 exerts no pressure, and demands no skill. It just invites you to have fun with it, whoever you are and whatever music you like. It’s wildly silly, creative and colourful, relying on daft, characterful choreography and to evoke a party atmosphere that puts everyone at ease. There’s not a lot here that wasn’t in Just Dance 4, or even Just Dance 3, but the series’ talent for getting people up and dancing is still unmatched.
Pros: Daft, accessible choreography, Cool extra Wii U features, Modern pop-heavy soundtrack
Excerpt: Ubisoft has announced the biggest party of the year with the release of Just Dance 2014 for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, and Wii U. Just Dance 2014 takes the spotlight with fun game modes and a huge selection of entertaining songs that will get you up and moving in no time. Just Dance 2014 makes it easy for anyone to look like a professional dancer, because it aims to be more of a party game and leaves out all the super technical stuff that you may expect a game of this nature to...
“We’re up all night to get lucky” – Just Dance 2014 Review
25 October 2013
Summary: Don’t let dancing be a ‘guilty pleasure’ – it can be good for your health, breaks the stereotype that we are all couch potatoes, and most of all it is a lot of fun. While I’m surprised that Just Dance 2014 continues the tradition of not letting us import our old tracks, it offers plenty of new features to make the series innovative instead of iterative. Now, if you will excuse me, it’s time to pull off my best robot moves to some Daft Punk. “We’re up all night for...
Pros: Game is a visual piñata full of neon and crazy, Diverse and fun soundtrack, Awesome mashups and alternate choreography, Non-punishing gameplay is fun, even at high difficulty, Never feels like a grind
Cons: Can’t import from previous games, Couldn’t get any JDTV items to load, Kinect feels pretty imprecise at times
Conclusion: Just Dance 2014 doesn’t do anything to drastically overhaul the already polished formula, but the addition of online play is worth the price of admission alone for Just Dancers struggling to get their corn chip-laden lazy friends up off the couch. It’s a far more connected social experience than previous games, but one still best served by gathering an energetic bunch in the same room to perform a hilarious full-body dry heave to set to music.
Pros: Finally adds online play, Interesting mix of songs, New Sweat mode, Accessible for all skill levels
Cons: Emphasis on multiplayer means it's really, really weird alone, The vibrant design can get a little too busy

Già in quest’ottica, le due serie di cui sopra dovrebbero essere lodate e acquistate senza batter ciglio, giusto per permettere a una delle aziende più importanti e impegnate del settore di...
