    The new game modes are great and the tracklist is wide, fun and almost perfect. It's still the same game gameplay wise, but at least it offers some new ways to play. Maybe next year's edition will think more about the user experience, which is the biggest flaw on Just Dance 2016.

    I am still missing the return of the battle mode, but with new additions like Showtime or World Video Challenge as well as the well-known colorful and beautifully weird art-design you can’t go wrong with Just Dance 2016 if you’re looking for good clean party fun.

    It's hard to deny that it is a fun thing to play with family and friends – even if the formula is in dire need of a shake-up. Its focus on having fun over meticulously learning dance steps makes its a great game for all ages, though it's “if it ain’t broke, then don’t fix it" approaches wearing a bit thin.

    Despite my qualms, I had fun playing Just Dance 2016 -- but then again, it’s hard not to. It’s still a favored party game and one that has almost perfected the fun-for-all game model. Heck, it’s reached a point where it’s thrown in some mediocre new modes and a subscription model just to keep itself fresh, so in some cases you can call this a success. However you can also say that Just Dance is a dying breed, one that is taking its last breath to capitalize on the streaming craze that’s enveloped our little gaming world. I say we don’t think about it too deeply, and just dance.

    Just Dance 2016 is a fun party game but its movement tracking does not offer enough precision to appeal to more competitive players. The track selection on the disk is a little lacking; with only a handful of big hitters available unless you are willing to pay for Just Dance Unlimited.

    All in all, Just Dance 2016 is the same Just Dance that millions of party people in varying levels of enthusiasm and sobriety have enjoyed for seven iterations now (not counting the multitude of spin-offs). Nothing's really changed there. What has changed, though, is how badly Ubisoft wants to get in your phone, your living room, and your wallet.

I've owned every JD game for the Kinect - hey, it's a great workout. But THIS? Terrible song selection, No World Dance Floor (Online) and a SUBSCRIPTION for old songs? Dance Central had a one time charge to import ALL the previous songs to DC3. Why this decision? It's like they're trying to kill the franchise.

    Bought the game had a blast with the wife and kids....until day 2 when the trial subscription ran out. Then half the songs that we liked were locked out.

    NOWHERE ON THE BOX DOES UT TELL YOU YOU NEED A SUBSCRIPTION.

    So let me get this straight. I pay $40 for the game then I have to pay monthly to use half the game.

    Negative ghost rider,

    so I paid $40 for a game demo basically.

    F that noise.
