    Overall, this latest game is unlikely to disappoint fans of the rhythm genre and this series in particular. It has a good selection of songs, the control system is spot on (presumably since the team has spent years refining it), and there are some nice returns with great new features.

    Just Dance 2020 is better than previous games in the franchise and does not disappoint. It offers what fans are looking for: new songs to dance. All of them are accompanied by a wide variety of options and modes that are enjoyed especially in the company of friends and family. However, the fact that our stats and data are recorded also encourages us to challenge ourselves.

    If you’re looking for a fun party game or just want to improve your dance skills – Just Dance 2020 is a must-own. My kids and I had a ton of fun with Just Dance 2020. If you’re a parent like me looking for a video game solution that gets your kids off their butts and moving, I highly recommend Just Dance 2020.

    Is Just Dance 2020 “the ultimate dance game”? Probably not; while an improvement over last year, there are better entries in the series. But it still offers fun exercise and enjoyable family entertainment. Just be sure to be subscribed to Just Dance Unlimited as that’s what will keep you dancing beyond the first month. Happy anniversary, Just Dance.

    Perhaps this is, at least for a newcomer, a bit like showing up halfway through a movie and complaining about it, out loud, to absolutely no one's interest. There's something genuinely fun about playing Just Dance 2020, and while there's nothing surprising, there really doesn't need to be. As a product, this works. However, it doesn't always feel like a game. It feels, at times, like interactive marketing, and while that may be fine for some, it's hard to believe no one out there is going to look at this and feel like it's anything more than a commercial you can play.

    As a ten-year celebration for the franchise, Just Dance 2020 is mostly the same, for better or for worse. While it strips some of the innovative features of past entries, the eclectic and energetic songlist will get any party pumped up all night. Just make sure you get Just Dance Unlimited for a better time.

    Just Dance 2020 keeps the formula of the Just Dance series that so many people love and that's the game's main asset. It's also its biggest liability, as the game shows too little in terms of new, relevant content to stand out compared to its closest predecessors. This is a very fun game with new, updated tracks but for those who subscribe to the Just Dance Unlimited service, owning Just Dance 2020 will turn out to be redundant.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I'm a HUGE Just Dance fan. I've been playing that game franchise for over 5 years and I still love it with the new songlist and choreography. For Just Dance 2020 being the eleventh game in the Just Dance franchise celebrates 10 Years of Just Dance. It includes the standard 40 tracks in the base game which is pretty much the standard for any Just Dance game. The menu is very much almost identical to Just Dance 2019, but the good bonus there is the fact that the option to make your own Playlist is there from launch this time. The previous game did had that feature in a later update. The songlist for Just Dance 2020 in the base game is very much on-point much like previous Just Dance games with a bunch of hit songs mainly from the 2010s and the years 2018 and 2019. So yeah, expect to see Lil Nas X's Old Town Road (Remix), and Billie Eilish's bad guy in the mix, alongside with a Katy Perry song. There is also noticeably a few more K-POP songs which is awesome since the BLACKPINK song from Just Dance 2019 is surprisingly most played. There is a few unknown songs that you'll eventually enjoy it, of course there is a couple of pre-2000s songs (unfortunately covered again. *sigh*), and there is actually a few 2000s songs. And of course Baby Shark... really.

    Much like before, the Just Dance Unlimited feature used in the previous four Just Dance games first debuting in Just Dance 2016, is included in Just Dance 2020 making it the fifth game to have this feature. And you'll be blown away that the number of songs in that online subscription based catalogue has hit 500 and still growing with new exclusive songs and past Just Dance favorites added in throughout the year to keep the game fresh. If you ask me, that is where you'll get the most playtime out of it. So even though the game allows you to have 1 month free for the start, I would suggest paying to get the most out of it while potentially waiting for the next Just Dance game to get announced at E3. Kids Mode is pretty much a staple with 8 songs + Unlimited for the kids to... enjoy.

    For other things, the game finally brings back a few cool features to those on 8th Gen Consoles and Switch, being; Skins, Co-Op mode (once known as the Gem Mode From Just Dance 2016/17), Sticker Book which this time you'll be collecting stickers based on all moments of previous Just Dance games in this book), and even the Similar Songs screen that shows after a song has finish to keep the party going (you can always hide or show this in the Options Menu). One big new feature is All-Star Mode which is Just Dance's version of Career Mode. With that you help the Panda mascot go to his party by picking up coaches from the previous iterations of Just Dance from Just Dance 1 all the way to Just Dance 2020 where after that, it'll unlock the song High Hopes by Panic! At The Disco. There is also one extra song which requires you to use a code being the song Get Busy by Koyotie. If you are wondering what the alternate routines are like, well... the extreme bit is that most of the alternates are Extreme Versions which they are mostly enjoyable to learn but difficult to master. The cool thing is that the songs in the Base Game apart from the code song and the Frozen 2 song has unlockables which you can get; an avatar for playing it once, a sticker for playing it three times, and the gold avatar for Megastar which for some requires practice. For the Extreme Versions, just get Superstar on the original. And Alternates, just dance the original 5 times.

    So in summary, Just Dance 2020 celebrates 10 Years of Just Dance in style, even if the menu is the same as 2019. World Dance Floor is the same, Kids Mode is something, the returning and new additions are awesome including how you unlock stuff, Unlimited is a must-have for longevity even if it requires an active online subscription, internet and money, and yeah. That is Just Dance 2020 in a review. As always, I can't wait till hopefully if it is titled Just Dance 2021. Just Dance 2020 is a fun game and a decent workout for anyone which I highly recommend playing.

De ce côté là, Just Dance 2020 fête les 10 ans de la licence avec quelques petites nouveautés intéressantes, notamment le mode All Stars qui nous rappel de très bons souvenirs. Le choix des nouvelles chanson peut être discuté mais de toute façon, le catalogue énorme de Just Dance Unlimited mettra tout le monde d’accord. De toute façon, Just Dance 2020 a toujours le même gameplay et c’est pour ça qu’on l’aime. Il améliore même un petit peu la reconnaissance de mouvements aux Joy-Con et est plus que jamais la référence et la valeur sûre des jeux de dance et de rythme compétitifs. Un très bon Just Dance pour cette année! Expand

One hour that comes with a hefty price and a very very limited catalog of songs. The catalog covers general categories, so among the 40 with the game, you will end up liking and dancing on 5 top. Ubisoft's tactic to get you to pay an expensive monthly fee to access all the songs that had already been part of their catalog is simply nasty. Even after you do start the trial, Ubisoft released an online-only game, and their now-famous server's poor performances will ruin the fun, crashing 4/5 before or during the songs. A nightmare. The bet on having kids ask their parents to pay that fee is pure evil. Sold it already. Expand

    Very lazy, very repetitive. Don't get this game. It also has awful songs like Baby Shark so they can pander to the mainstream. Ugh
