    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.

    If you're already into Just Dance and consider yourself a die-hard Michael Jackson fan, there's no doubt that you need to have this game in your collection...but being a fan myself, I found the final product a little lacking.

    Michael Jackson: The Experience is fun but just knowing how much more could have been done ultimately is disappointing.

Those games are usually repetitive and dull, but this game is one that stands out from the crowd. The only goal in the game is to get a high score on different songs by copying the on screen dancers moves. It is surprisingly fun and fun to watch. It also is quite sensitive to your movement, but there is little warning to what is coming up. There are lots of songs at a variety of difficulty levels. But, with few unlockables, and a big price tag, it does take away some of the greatness. This would be a solid purchase on the $18.99 rack, but even even with that fact, this is a great party game.

I want to get more games for him that promotes motion and he likes to dance. He likes this game quite a bit, but it's me who finds herself playing this usually. I thought I'd introduce my son to a little "old school" and he is mildy interested in it but likes the dancing. Myself, I enjoy the nostolgia the game brings me and its great fun to learn the routines I've seen in old MJ videos. I think my son is having more fun watching mom make a fool of herself than he is playing the game, but i'm all over it :-) Full Review »

This sort of game usually isn't for me, but as someone who used to enjoy his tunes way back in the day I found myself watching as my wife played and then started playing myself. This is loads of fun, it's a great game to get moving with and harkens back to an earlier era in music. It's a good take on the dance genre and appeals to me more than a game like DDR would.
