    I picked up Michael Jackson The Experience as a skeptic, but I had a lot of fun dancing with my sequined glove despite myself. There's not much of a game beyond mastering the choreography, but it's worth it if you ever wanted to dance with a legend.

    Two decades after my first virtual encounter, he may no longer be a system-seller, but Jacko's still got all the right moves.

    Michael Jackson: The Experience is indeed a good way to dance along to your favourite King of Pop routines, but that's really about it.

    The game works well as a tribute to Michael Jackson, although it could have included some more extras for the deceased singer fans, and also a better gameplay.

    If only the game gave you more encouragement to improve.

    As a tribute it's more souvenir than towering statue. [Christmas 2010, p.69]

    Dance Central can eat its heart out.

    I must admit I was slightly hesitant at first when it came to picking up this game, as I was devastated when MJ died. But once I slipped on that glove, and began breaking it down oh so low to 'Billy Jean' I felt Michael was alive again, living through the rhythmic undulations of my pelvis! I especially like the bonus levels, racking up points touching as many prepubescent boys possible while the timer counts down is almost as thrilling as the real thing! Or so I've heard. The glove is a great addition to the package too. I've often fallen back onto my sofa, in a sweaty mess after a good 2 hour session of the game just to let my gloved hand do the walking... wink wink. It's almost like Michael is in the room with me. This is a must buy for die hard fans. Expand

    Great music, great choreography, great features. Of course it helps if you like the music (which I do), but at the price this game is available for now you can't really go wrong. We bought 3 dancing games with our Wii and this is easily the best. Fun exercise anyone? Expand

    Dance the night a-way-yay! Every time I play this game I end up running MJ songs through my head for the rest of the day. For an MJ fan like me, this is a good thing! I think this game is getting a bad wrap by the critics. It's a fun dance game, especially if you are already an MJ fan. The critics may be panning it but look at the USER scores. We players seem to like it quite a bit. I would recommend it for fans of the dance genre and MJ fans in particular. This is well designed and a lot of fun, plus it brings fans along on a trip down memory lane. Expand

    Michael Jackson was the greatest entertainer of all time. This game could have hacked it, but they are doing his legacy justice. The choreography in this is pure Jackson and there are some great tunes. They went for some of the obvious choices for the songs (of course Thriller is in there) but there are some lesser known but no less tasty tracks here as well (Don't Stop Till You Get Enough and Ghosts are 2 favorites of mine). Being that the game is based on Jackson's dancing, expect the challenge to be big here. But don't get discouraged, it's way too much fun to pass up. And when you nail some of the tough moves, you really feel like a bad-ass. Expand

    Graphic: 6.5/10; Audio: 9/10; Gameplay: 7/10; Loving to Michael Jackson's music: 10/10; OVERALL: 8/10. I recommend this game, if you are Michael Jackson's fan. Expand

    Michael Jackson The "Experience" is flawed and very terrible, the soundtrack saves the icon. Though, the gameplay is terrible, for fans of the King of the Pop and the guys that loved Just Dance this is probably a most own for you. It's a casual game and casual people will love it because it has some nice touches, in my case i think this isn't an experience . People just play the Move and Kinect versions. Expand
