    This year's edition of the Just Dance series lifts the game beyond its former releases thanks to its focus on treating players to various extras the more they play and integrating the online component so smoothly into the regular play.

    Just Dance 2015 is still a party guarantee with catchy songs and lots of movement. It does not have a lot of innovation and many group songs are not fun to do alone, but we are happy to see the World Dance Floor is back.

    Just Dance 2015 is still one of the best party games around, but the formula really needs to be refreshed.

    Overall, Just Dance 2015 is much like its predecessors, but in the struggle to do something ‘new’ with the game, Ubisoft has added a lot of features that are not really worth your bother.

    More than a proper sequel, Just Dance 2015 is an expensive data disk: the fun is definitely still there, yet after five years the series seems to be in need of some significant brand new features (or at least of a whole different business model).

    The new Just Dance 2015 brings what the audience expects: a large musical assortment, along with fun and creative choreographies. Where this game does not stand out is on its variety, as it lacks significant improvements and additions to its experience, possibly as a consequence of a release policy that produces one Just Dance title per year.

    Ubisoft’s Just Dance series kicked off with a bang on the Wii with young children and families getting involved in the new craze. But with soUbisoft’s Just Dance series kicked off with a bang on the Wii with young children and families getting involved in the new craze. But with so many games in the series including spinoffs, could they be milking the game too much like Activision and Guitar Hero? The game does include some new features but, it is possible that these could have been implemented as DLC in last year’s game.

    So, the game still uses the classic Wii remotes to trigger the moves you pull from the on screen choreography and scores you points on how well you actually did pull it off.

    The target is to get the highest points you can in each of the different songs available. The songs have been updated to new tracks of this year and the graphics have been polished for the Wii U.

    One nice little feature is the community remix where the game records you performing your favorite songs and also shows you how other people playing the game do the same. This can be both helpful and annoying, as if you can’t do the move in the first place, trying to copy someone else doing it while they watch you can really put you off.

    The game can also be connected to your smartphone using the Just Dance Now app, so you can take your dance moves on the go.
    As said before though, new songs could’ve been added through DLC to previous games, and also an update to the software could have added the smartphone connections features just as amiibo have been added to Mario Kart and Hyrule Warriors.

    Just Dance is still as fun as it was when it first released back in 2009 if you enjoyed it then. But I’ll be honest, it’s just starting feel repetitive if you haven’t skipped a few. The new features are good, but they just don’t warrant a £40 purchase for updated songs which could be added as DLC.

    After seeing how much Just Dance 2014 brought to the table, with tons of alternate routines, a slew of new features, and an amazing variety ofAfter seeing how much Just Dance 2014 brought to the table, with tons of alternate routines, a slew of new features, and an amazing variety of tracks, I was expecting Just Dance 2015 to bring the same style and charm. However, this game fell flat of my expectations.

    There are a few good features, such as the new Community Remix mode, which lets players put themselves in the game, but overall, there's nothing really new about this game. In fact, it feels like a lot was omitted from this game as compared to Just Dance 2014.

    First of all, Just Dance 2014 had tons of different modes and alternate routines for its songs. Almost every song in the game had an Extreme, Sweat, or Alternate routine. In Just Dance 2015, there are only 4 Extreme versions (which aren't even called Extreme versions anymore), 3 Alternate versions, and only 1 Sweat version (for Calvin Harris's "Summer").

    Secondly, the Party Master mode is severely lacking. In Just Dance 2014, many songs within the game had Party Master modes, which let you use the GamePad to choose which moves came next. In Just Dance 2015, there are only five songs available in this mode, which makes it get boring pretty fast.

    Another big problem is the lack of any new DLC. There were about 5 new DLC songs for this game, but the rest was all recycled material from past games. Just Dance 2014 did have some recycled songs, but a wealth of new songs as well, including Wake Me Up by Avicii and Can't Hold Us by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. What's more is that while DLC usually comes monthly, DLC came about every other month for this game. It's just not worth it to add DLC that infrequently when most of it isn't even worth buying.

    A new addition in this game is the Just Dance VIP mode, which lets you dance along to a certain song with a celebrity or Just Dance choreographer. This idea looks good on paper, but in all honesty, it doesn't really add much to the game, since you're essentially following along to the same routine, but with a different person onscreen.

    One of the possible main reasons this game was poor in comparison to Just Dance 2015 is that Ubisoft is also maintaining its other Just Dance-related game, Just Dance Now (which lets you play a multitude of Just Dance songs with your smartphone). I understand that Ubisoft is having a hard time maintaining both games, but honestly, no one really uses Just Dance Now (or at least, no one is willing to pay for VIP passes for all of the songs). Ubisoft could simply do away with Just Dance Now and focus on its main series.

    The announcement of Just Dance 2016 at E3 is only 2 months away. We all know they're working on a new one. I, along with many other Just Dance fans, are hoping that the next Just Dance game will be a vast improvement on this one.

Annoying tracklist, few songs and alternates, and there's literally no other game mode than Party Master and World Dance Floor, both glitchy as hell. Expand
