    Don't expect to be blown away by weeks of fun, but prepare yourself for an hour of pleasant challenges and a strong take on how to make dancing games work on handhelds.

    A slick port of a proven formula. Michael Jackson fans, of which there are many, will find much to enjoy.

    Michael Jackson: The Experience is a game that manages to get most everything right. The gameplay is uniquely suited to the touch screen, the visuals are top notch, and the spirit of the game captures the fun of Jackson's music videos flawlessly. It's a shame, then, that there's so little of it to go around – and that you're only getting about half the package with your initial purchase.

    The imprecise controls, and surprisingly small song selection hold the game back.

    It's all just a bit sad really, and while devoted Jackson fans will find more reason than most to gloss over the practical shortcomings of the game, they run the risk of being left even sadder.

    Michael Jackson The Experience is a gateway to some great music, but it's not very fun to play.

    When a game's so terrible it makes you yearn for the days of Moonwalker on Sega Genesis, there's a problem. Michael Jackson The Experience should have been one of the premier music titles for iPad. Instead, it's one of the worst.
