    This is another game that only has one goal. 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. ThereThis is another game that only has one goal.

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.

    If you really love Michael Jackson songs then buy it. But if you don't like his songs and you're not a very good dancer don't waste your money to buy it.

    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 .

    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 EnoughMichael Jackson was the greatest entertainer of all time.

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. Collapse

    The game is competent but not compelling, adequate but not outstanding. Unless you are a big Michael Jackson fan it's a rental at best. Unless you can find that version with the glove. Now that will provide hours of fun and amusement.

    With Jacko's tunes and moves to work with, this should have been so much better. [Feb 2011, p.96]

    Michael Jackson: The Experience falls short of being a great dancing title because of its own faults and that of the system on which it's running.
