Just Dance 2014 Review


Another year and another Just Dance video game has arrived at retail. As with previous Just Dance games, players are judged on their ability to mimic on-screen dancers performing a routine to a chosen song and will have a blast doing it. The series is known for its undeniable fun gameplay and this year’s version is no exception. Minor tweaks here and there to the already proven formula make this game instantly accessible and entertaining.

How did Just Dance 2014 fair? Read our official Just Dance 2014 review and find out.

To bring you all up to speed, Just Dance 2014 is a music video game, developed by the good people over at Ubisoft. This marks the fifth main installment of the immensely popular Just Dance series. The game relies heavily on what made it popular in the first place (crazy, fun “dancing” mechanics) and couples it with some of today’s biggest dance hits. If you have yet to test drive this series, now would be a great time to start.

As expected, players mimc on the on screen movements with wild dance moves and is better played in a group setting. The wild times that my family and I have had with this series over the past few years have been amazing and it’s old but reliable control scheme still get us up and grooving. It never seems to fail when we have Just Dance blaring through our TV speakers, someone in my family is up and dancing. I have had a number of family members ranging from my 3 year old daughter to my 57 year old mother dancing away in my living room and we all have a blast.

There is a reason why Just Dance is the world’s #1 selling dance game. It’s entertainment that everyone/anyone can enjoy and is an absolute blast to play. The game features a host of new features such as:

World Dance Floor: Dance with anyone anywhere in the world in Just Dance’s first-ever online multiplayer mode! Players join a virtual crew – made up of real-life friends or other Just Dance fans – and compete based on different themes (“Boys Vs Girls”, “Crew Vs Crew”). Players can also track their standing on global leaderboards, check out fun stats about other players around the world, and see community updates.

On Stage Mode: Own the spotlight in this new mode where one player will dance, lead two back up dancers, and even sing if they want! As the star of the show, the player can take it seriously and show off how talented they are, or just goof off with friends.

Party Master: Puppet Master mode has upgraded to the Party Master mode to give the player controlling the GamePad even more options to MC the party. Choose the next dance move, pick new songs, and even dish out silly challenges to up to four other players!

Custom Sweat Mode: Players can personalize their Just Sweat workouts by creating custom playlists and tracking calories. There’s also a new option to track calories in all gameplay modes, even outside of the dedicated Just Sweat mode.

All in all, if you’re looking for a fantastic game to play that will get everyone yelling and dancing, Just Dance is your game. The series has proved to be pure joy and puts a smile on anyones face who is brave enough to try it out. It’s fun, simple, provocative and gets the people going (10 points to whoever can guess that movie quote).

Just Dance 2014 is another solid entry to the immensely popular title and is recommended by yours truly.

Overall Myvideogamenews score: 8.0 out of 10.

As always, thanks for reading.
