Bring home the ultimate party starter and join in the fun!
What can we say about the new Just Dance 2014? Yes it has new songs to dance to and the graphics are slightly better than previous versions. Even with the new songs though, don't get too excited. Personally, if you are going to make a dancing game, you would think they would pick better songs. I am getting tired of the old songs and songs you have barely heard of making the track list when there could be such better ones included. Are there better ones? Yes if you want to pay for them. I think spending the amount on the game should be enough to include those better songs in the first place.
What do we think of the new interactive features this time? I could care less actually. I don't dance to this game with anyone besides my family, so I have no intention of connecting with people all over the world to see me dance. Again, this is personal and others might enjoy this part of the feature.
While as a family we enjoyed the game and have spent many hours playing it, I find it lacking in the above things mentioned. Hopefully they will change this like they did with numbering it by years instead of release number.
Party Master: Puppet Master mode has upgraded to the Party Master mode to give the player controlling the Wii U GamePad even more options to MC the party. Choose the next dance move, pick new songs, and dish out silly challenges to up to 4 other players!
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.
On Stage Mode: Own the spotlight in this new mode where 1 player will dance, lead 2 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.
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.
