Gameplay

The concept of the game remains from previous Just Dance installment, with players mimicking the dance moves of on-screen dancers for a score. There are four new dance modes, including 'Just Dance Mode' where players can get together and dance for an unlimited duration. 'Non-Stop Shuffle' where gameplay is nonstop, 'Medleys' which include 5 short pieces of different songs which are mixed together.

'Duets' allows for players on the same console to dance together. 'Dance Battle Mode' is a team mode that features up to 8 players support. 'Just Sweat' mode is an exercise focused mode which set objectives based around completing dance sessions.

Track List

Here is the list of the 48 original songs. 3 of them are exclusive routines and 1 is a Warm Up routine.

Trivia

  • This is the first Just Dance game to feature DLCs, alternate routines and duets.
  • This is the first Just Dance game to have the squares cropped into a different shape (in this case, a circle). It is followed by Just Dance 3 (which did the same thing), the Wii and PS3 versions off Just Dance 4 (cropping the squares into a "D" shape), and Just Dance 2018 (which crop the squares into circles with sharpened edges).
  • This is the first game where Gold Moves appear. In the previous Just Dance installment, the moves with bonus points exist as Shake Moves.
  • This is the only game in the series where, in duet routines, the lyrics are displayed at the bottom center and the pictograms slide from both sides of the screen.
  • This is the first Just Dance game to have store-exclusive songs. It is later followed by Just Dance 3.
  • This is the last Just Dance game to only be available for the Wii. Just Dance 3 opened compatibility to Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, Just Dance 4 to the Wii U, Just Dance 2014 to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and Just Dance 2017 to the Nintendo Switch and PC.
  • In the files, the Contest Winners extractions have incorrect codenames; Sam's routine appears as contest3, Mandy's routine appears as contest1 and Liana's routine appears as contest2.
  • This game was the best-selling third-party Wii game.[1]
  • If the player get 5 stars on every song, the home screen will show up having a yellow background and have star shapes appear. This feature later reappeared on Just Dance 3.
  • A player cannot choose which coach to follow in a Duet; the people holding onto the first and third Wii remotes will have to play as P1, while the people holding onto the second and fourth Wii remotes will have to play as P2.
    • However, if you have 2 Wii remotes, connect them to the Wii, and then disconnect P1's Wii remote, you can play as P2.
    • This also occurred on Just Dance Summer Party.
