    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 . People just play the Move andMichael Jackson The "Experience" is flawed and very terrible, the soundtrack saves the icon.

    The only gamers which could stay away from this experience are those which don't like the king of pop. For those who like MJ or don't know enough about his music this is a must have. I really can't understand why I should prefer Just Dance 2... Are Improvised dance moves better than choreograph-ies made for music videos or live exhibitions? This really don't make sense!

Group dancing is spectacular (think yourself making zombie movies behind MJ...) and most of the songs make you sweat a lot.
    Unlocking tutorials is not a problem at all since some choreograph-ies let you take stars very easily ;)

    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.
