I got the moooooooves like Jagger… – UbiChamps review of Just Dance 4

21 November 2012

Thank you to Ubisoft for sponsoring this post. Please click here to learn more about Ubisoft. I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective. #UbiChamps

Something I learned first hand this week is that it is pretty much impossible to be unhappy and dance at the same time. I was having a rough night, and though my friends were there to help, what I really needed was a distraction and some fun. So I popped a bottle of wine and put in Just Dance 4 on my Wii U.

After my first song, I was definitely feeling better. An hour, and half a bottle later… I was laughing, still dancing, and getting 5 star scores. Oh, and at some point I had lost my pants. (Hence why there’s no video/photos of me playing.)

Now, I’m not recommending you go get slightly drunk and lose your pants… but I am recommending getting Just Dance 4 for whatever gaming system you own. JD4 was actually the very first game I got for my Wii U. In fact, I got the game before I got the Wii U!

So the game play is pretty much the same—which is exactly want you want, an upbeat dance game. However, exclusive to the Wii U, Puppet Master mode. With this, a fifth person can control the gameplay and choreography moves on the fly.

Since I live alone, I haven’t had a chance to do this… But seeing how much fun my family had last holiday season with my Wii, I’m pretty sure this game will make it home this year.

My family and I are definitely not known for our dance moves. So this will surely be an entertaining time. Sibling rivalry is going to go to extreme hilarious means as I take on my brother in dance battles. Also, I predict my niece is going to kick all our butts across the board. (The fact the Umbrella by Rihanna is on there, yeah, she memorized that song when she was 3 and I’m sure she still remember the words.)

Thing that I’ve liked about the Just Dance series, it’s a lot of fun, but can also be included in a workout routine. And if you’re like me and holiday food—hello, turkey, potatoes, gravy, pie. omg pie—well, then more family fun also means dancing away to seconds, thirds, and even fourths.

Pretty sure you can guess which song I think you should start out with…

  • My 4-year old niece is taking dance now and she just loves it. I need to get that kid in front of the Wii – alas, the measly OLD SCHOOL Wii – with Just Dance at Christmas.

    Dancing is the way to go on a crummy day! My balance board wasn’t charged when I went to do Wii Fit yoga to de-stress pre-wedding, so I put on sunglasses and Just Dance 3 and Cee Lo and I worked it out together. It was WAY better than yoga, though I can’t say much for inner peace.

    • Erini

      haha, that’s awesome. 🙂
      G hasn’t taken dance yet, but she hopefully will soon.
      I think tomorrow night I’m going to have a “me night” and it’ll involve a lot of dancing.
