Just Dance 2014 is a dance game developed and published by Ubisoft. It is the fifth installment in the series and the first to be released on the PS4 and Xbox One. It is the first installment to include a year instead of a number in its title. The game was released on October 8, 2013 on 7th-Gen consoles and the Wii U, November 15, 2013 for PS4, and November 22, 2013 for Xbox One.
Like the other games, you must mimic the dancer's moves. The dance moves are rated either X, OK, GOOD or PERFECT. The Wii remote, PS3 motion controller, PS4 motion controller/camera, and the Kinect sensor are the judges on how well you are in sync with the dancer.
The game has returning features like Mashups, Alternate Routines, Puppet Master Mode (now Party Master Mode), Dance Battles, and Dancer Cards.
After you dance, you will get Mojocoins that help you boost up your dance rank. The Mojocoins also help you unlock Dance Mashups, new Dancer Card avatars, Alternate Routines, Battles and more.
Just Sweat includes various different routines that have dances to specific songs. The sweat routines, unlike Just Dance 4, have a choreography that goes along to a song in game. Just Sweat mode allows the dancer to select what songs he or she would like to dance to. When dancing the game tracks calories burned.
The Xbox One can support 6 players at once, and the PlayStation 4 gives the player the option of being tracked by the PlayStation 4 camera or move remote.
Difficulty levels of songs by number (1, 2, 3, or 4) have been replaced with Easy, Medium, Hard or Hardest.
- On-Stage Mode: A brand new mode available across all platforms. This mode puts the spotlight on one particular dancer's performance with two back-up dancers supporting. The "star" of the routine dances, performs, and sings along with the track to accrue points. The star can take the role seriously and show off how talented they are, or goof off and be silly with friends or family dancing in the background.
- World Dance Floor: brand new feature available on all platforms. The World Dance Floor is Just Dance's first ever online multiplayer mode. The feature allows people from different parts of the world – or even just your neighbor down the street – to dance together to the same song at the same time. Players join a crew and dance to different themes ("Boys vs. Girls" "Crew A vs. Crew B") that pit various crews against each other. In between songs players can check out global leader boards, fun Just Dance stats, and community updates.
- Just Sweat: back and more robust than ever. The Just Sweat calorie tracking feature is usable in any game mode. Available on all motion control platforms, now players can opt-in to track calories regardless of what mode they're playing. For those Just Dancers who really want to personalize their work out, players can create customized playlists. The playlists can include any Just Sweat routines in whichever order the player prefers.
- Just Dance TV: lets players browse through and share their favorite Autodance videos. With the upgraded Just Dance TV, a Themed channel has been added, and players with the coolest uploads will rise to the top in the all-new Spotlight channel. There is also the ability to share any video you see across Just Dance TV on Twitter or Facebook, the option to follow specific players, and the choice to receive notifications when new content is posted.
- Autodance: updated; lets the players create funny video vignettes of their routine. Players can customize their videos and make each one completely unique: from custom borders, to color filters, or even changing the proportions of people's hands or heads, the changes are quirky and fun. For the Xbox 360 version, you need a Hard Drive to use this feature.
- Karaoke: new feature available on all platforms that have a microphone. Tracks a player's voice and gives Mojocoins based on how accurate the player sings. Microphones for the Wii version need to be bought separately in order to use this feature.
The game contains 46 music tracks (54 in total).

Behind The Scenes
- The previous games in the main series had routines containing solo females by female artists to be first on the list. In this, the first song to appear on the list is Kiss You, which is by One Direction (all-male band), and it has a dance crew of four males (or the six player mode on the Xbox One in which have 3 females and 3 males). This is the first game to have male dancers and artists and non-solo routines be the first on the list in the main series. That is the first game of the first song in the menu is not a solo female.
- On the PAL cover, a male dancer in a red suit with spikes is shown. However, that dancer does not appear in the game.
- On the Wii, downloadable tracks cannot be directly put on the SD card when buying it, and if they are on the SD card by transferring them in the Archives list in the Extras panel, they cannot be played from there.
- This also occurs on Just Dance 2015.
- The Mashups have Gold Moves again, but not all of them do and some Gold Moves do not count as a move.
- Just Dance 2014 is the first game in the main series since the original Just Dance to not have Non-Stop Shuffle as a feature.
- Every DLC comes with an avatar looking like the dancer. This is the only game to include this.
- This is the first game to have the font named Exergamer Viet, which looks a lot like Tungsten Bold.
- The game holds record for the highest count of Spanish songs, with 4 (María, Limbo, Follow The Leader and Can’t Get Enough).
- However, only two of them (María and Limbo) are entirely in Spanish.
- As with the last 3 games, Just Dance 2014 won a KCA award for 'Best Video Game'. It followed by the next 3 games is the series.
- However, this is the first time that it wasn't announced, but revealed after the show.
- Just Dance 2014 is the first game in the Just Dance series in the main series that has two songs by the same artist (Lady Gaga) on the main list without either being for any kind of special edition. It is followed by Just Dance 2015 (Katy Perry).
- On the Xbox One, the four player Dance Crew routines cannot support six players.
- This is because 4 cannot go into 6 evenly, unlike Solos, Duets, Trios and Six-Players which can.
- 4 players can jump in normally but when a 5th player is detected, it switches to 6 players. This exclude Six-Player routines.
- This is the first game in the series where the regional exclusives have male dancers.
- The first set of downloadable tracks (Roar, Can’t Hold Us, Wake Me Up, and
We Can’t Stop]) came with an avatar that looked like the dancers in the songs and another avatar that resembles some of the characters from Rayman Legends, another Ubisoft game.
- Roar has Barbara, Can’t Hold Us has Rayman, Wake Me Up has Teensie, and We Can’t Stop has Globox.
- For the karaoke function to work on the Wii, a handheld USB microphone has to be connected to the Wii.
- This is the first game in which the menu is the same on all consoles.
- Whenever the dancers load, a silhouette of Beauty and a Beat is shown before the dancer loads. This is also the case with Just Dance Wii U as well as future main Just Dance games (excluding 8th Gen versions on Just Dance 2016 and Just Dance 2017), although that game has some menu changes.
- Also, if the silhouette appears in song select behind it you can read JD5. This could suggest that the game was initially called Just Dance 5 for quite a bit of development.
- Any copies of Just Dance 2014 bought within October 2013 through September 2014 have errors in pictograms and lyrics.
- On the PS3, when 4 players play, then sometimes a player will drop out randomly and then they have to add themselves back in the game. It is unknown why this happens and it is some type of glitch.
- However, any copies bought after September 21, 2014 has fixed these errors.
- This is the first time that a 6-Player crew is an alternate mode.
- However, the Six Player Crew is considered the Classic Mode on the Xbox One, while the Classic Modes for the other platforms are considered the Alternate modes.
- This is the first game that doesn't include a Britney Spears cover song, and this continues to Just Dance 2015. Just Dance 2016 brought her back with Circus, although it is not a cover.
- C’mon, Timber, and the Charleston Version of Starships are the only mixed gender Duets with a female as P1 and a male as P2; all other mixed gender duets have a male as P1 and a female as P2.
- This is excluding the recycled downloadable tracks.
- The Gold Move effect for this game is used for the demo version of Just Dance 2015 at the E3 convention.
- This game, along with the name and some screenshots, was leaked on the Xbox website a few days before it was announced at E3.
- On the Wii, if the console has any save data of downloadable tracks, the downloadable tracks will constantly change orders whenever the software is started.
- Every song available on this game is also either available on Just Dance Now/Just Dance Unlimited or has an archive in the files.
- If save data from the previous Just Dance games have been found by Just Dance 2014, one is able to unlock the following avatars:
- This is the first game that is the most linguistically diverse, containing the 8 following languages: English, Spanish, German, Serbian, French, Italian, Portuguese, Korean.
- It is later followed by Just Dance 2017.
- Players who owned a hacked Wii would be able to get We Can't Stop on the game from the shop. However, on November 26th, 2013, We Can't Stop was removed from the hacked shop and was replaced by Dummy.
- Many songs on this game were accidentally revealed on some websites for the World Dance Floor and AutoDance back in 2013.
- The game was originally supposed to have a demo, as there is an unused locked Extras square with the words "Not available in demo version" in the files of the game.
- The said file also appears in the Just Dance Wii U files.
- The game was leaked two days on the Xbox website before it was supposed to be revealed. This also occurred for Just Dance: Disney Party 2.
- Just Dance DJ would have been added since it was shown in the trailer, but it was later canceled.
- The menu is affected by a glitch: sometimes, two song covers activate and animate at once.
- On the title screen in the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One version, the coach from Starships shows the pose that the player has to do (by raising his or her hand) to activate the menu control.
- While the Wii version now runs at 30fps, all other consoles run at 60fps.
- It would later apply to future main Just Dance games.
- On the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game, the pictograms move slightly upwards when they fade. On other consoles, they just zoom in, as in Just Dance 4.
- Starting with Just Dance 2015, this animation is used on all consoles.
