    Bottom line, regardless of age, gender, or experience, this is a game that everyone will have fun with.

    Just Dance 4 beats out any other fitness title and is a perfect way to get in some fun exercise. The best part is the diversity of tracks which can fit any mood that you are in.

    Just Dance 4 is the obvious choice when you feel like you want a party game to play with your friends. It has developed a lot since last time, the songs are really good and its choreography is very entertaining and easy to pick up. Dance Central has to look out.

    Because of the unlockable songs and modes Just Dance 4 feels like a game more than ever. The Sweat mode is an exciting option for those who'd like to keep fit by dancing. But it is a shame that some obvious changes haven't made the cut.

    Start up, choose your song, have fun. It is as easy as that. And you can even enjoy the dancing with up to four players. Nonetheless Just Dance could improve on a level of motion recognition. Sometimes it still is too easy to mislead the system into giving you credit for something you didn't do properly.

    It's been a long time since we've been reminded of how fun it is to just cut loose without caring how you look--and Just Dance 4 gives every opportunity to recall that carefree joy. [Feb 2013, p.85]

    Overall, Just Dance 4 is a great addition to the series. While it's not much of an upgrade on its predecessor, this is a title that will not fail to get people on their feet to dance at a house party. This is the most fun you will have in multiplayer with Kinect and a great stocking-filler this Christmas.

    Just Dance 4 is another good iteration in the series, with an expanded soundtrack and some new features.

    Just Dance 4 is a hard game not to like. It's completely unpretentious and simply exists to make you have fun, hopefully starting a party in the process.

    Just Dance 4 is less of a sequel and more of an annual update, tinkering and tweaking with existing game modes in order to please its fanbase. Even so, an excellent soundtrack coupled with alternative routines, mashups and dance battles ensures that Ubisoft's latest continues to provide hours of entertainment.

    A serious rival for Dance Central on Xbox 360. Crazy and fun, Just Dance 4 goes arcade, becoming a perfect game for parties with family ad/or friends. We think the tracklist could he improved, but obviously this is just an opinion. To sum up, a great game for Kinect and very, very entertaining.

    Just Dance 4 gives you the illusion of dancing with its flashy backgrounds, brightly dressed dancers, and high-scoring gold stars. But it does this by sacrificing accuracy and feedback: You probably won't become a better dancer after playing this game. If you can accept these limitations (or just want a decent fitness routine to do at home), you'll find a lot to like here.

    For those holding out for a fresh new dance experience, this isn't it, but for those wanting more of the same with a few extra options, tweaks and songs then this is a solid package. There is plenty of fun to be had in Just Dance 4, with or without friends, and players will certainly not be wanting for entertainment.

    Sure, Just Dance 4 doesn't bring much in the way of new features to the party, but if all you want is to have one hell of a fun, energetic, and hilarious time, there really is no party quite like a Just Dance 4 party.

    While I might sound overly critical at times of what Just Dance 4 offers, it is undeniably fun and that is ultimately most important. Despite the fact this game seems to have fallen into a schedule of yearly releases, Just Dance 4 is well priced and comes with a good variety of tracks, modes and multiplayer options.

    It's a fun scoring system, but it can get frustrating if one player is significantly better than the other. [Christmas 2012, p.94]

    The good news is that the basics, such as its over-the-top style, four player functionality, and diversity of tracks have returned. The bad news is that the opportunities this series has had to improve, like their unhelpful dance cards, crummy menus, and sometimes shoddy motion-tracking have gone unfixed.

    It's simply a bit of fun. [Issue#91, p.77]

    Just Dance is now synonymous with quality and fun, and that's what you will get if you play Just Dance 4.

    As with previous iterations in the series, 'Just Dance 4' is a fun romp in which anyone can participate and is as accessible as ever to the casual gamer.

    In conclusion, Just Dance 4 is a good game which utilises the Kinect in an impressive manner.

    There is no doubt that Just Dance 4 is lagging behind Dance Central 3 in terms of features, modes, and even just accurately sensing your moves. But sometimes that added depth can be a pretty big barrier for entry, especially in such a physically demanding game genre. Just Dance 4 may not have all of the right moves, but bust it out at a party and everyone is sure to be on their feet.

    GREAT game; a party game that is so much funnier than DC series, up to 4 people (=maximum laughter) can dance at time and all dances have a unique background to admire and distinct dancer to follow. its fun to play but after a day or two of constant play you have to give yourself a break, since you can get bored of the same song/dance routine even if there are over 40 song to dance to + extreme and alternative mode to keep the fun going. buy. play. laugh. cant wait for gangnam style Full Review »

    This is a VERY fun game. Although the choreography is pretty easy (which is a bit of a problem if you're a fan of Dance Central) they're fun to dance along with, and the dancers and backgrounds are nicely designed. There are some cool features too, like Just Sweat, mashups, and alternate routines. There's even Just Dance TV, where the game records you dancing so you can upload it for the world to see. The only problem I have is the song list. There are many good ones on there (We No Speak Americano, Rock N Roll, Good Feeling, ect.) but some are kind of bad (Everybody Needs Somebody to Love, Can't Take My Eyes Off You, ect.). I recommend this game if you want a fun dance experience that's great to play by yourself or with friends. Full Review »
