    If you enjoy older style rhythm games, you'll probably get a little bit of fun out of this, but I highly urge you to wait for a discount or price drop before taking the plunge.
  2. Feel dirty. [Apr 2012, p.118]
  3. Falls short of its price point - the only difference between this and the $5 app version is the playlist. [Apr 2012, p.56]

    It's also little more than a glorified back catalogue and the PS Vita launch line-up is stuffed to the point where this is almost entirely redundant. Unless you really like Beat It. Taptap!

    You'd get better interactivity in general from buying his Greatest Hits album and tapping your foot. [Apr 2012, p.109]

    It's just come down to 11.99 on PSN (UK) and at this price it's a steal..
    I have little interest in Jacko, but appreciate that this kind of
    thing is perfect for an on-the-go console...
    Graphics are very good, sound with headphones is nothing short of stunning, and it's crazy addictive...
    There are some brilliant challenges, loads of unlockables and plenty to keep you going until the inevitable DLC packs come along...
    No, it's not worth £20, but half that? Definitely. The best 1gb of fun you'll have on your memory card for a while - surprising amount of fun to be had!!
