Just Dance 4 packs 43 tracks, with a party-pleasing mix to suit both the thirtysomething trying to relive her Popworld-watching heyday, and the six-year-old who really, really likes Call Me Maybe. Essentially, if you've heard a song on Kiss FM in the past 12 months and thought, "Ooh, I would totally dance to that if I wasn't the wrong age for nightclubs", this collection has got you covered, and as a bonus you won't get sexually assaulted by a man in white jeans when you're getting a drink.
When games like this start to get later into a series, a staleness can appear, however Just Dance 4 manages to keep things fresh, the new tracks, new modes and improvements to returning features see this as a solid entry, it is an essential purchase for fans of the genre and another reason to get up and hit the dance floor.
Just Dance 4 is a triumph and goes to show that Ubisoft has definitely not been resting on its laurels, pouring more features into its premier music-related product to ensure that those that played other iterations are kept entertained, whilst the basic accessibility remains for newcomers. This is no mere roster update; this is pure dancing goodness.
Thought it was OK
A slightly extended Just Sweat exercise mode (complete with calorie counter and intensity tracker) and the song-specific lists of Dance Quests - both welcome enough additions - make their modest bows. So familiar it's basically an old friend by now. If you've liked it before, you'll like it now.
A decent sequel, with some fun new features, and proof once again that motion controls are the great leveller in terms of truly inclusive interactive entertainment. Good, clean, silly fun and with an ever broadening range of play modes and a much improved multiplayer. Day-Glo presentation still works great.
