Recently I had the opportunity to review Just Dance 4 for the XBOX Kinect and the entire family was sold after the first dance. We just LOVE it so much, so the kids were excited to try out the “kid” version of Just Dance – Just Dance Disney Party.
Verdict: My kids LOVE Disney everything and they loved this version of Just Dance too. We’ve seen pretty much every Disney movie there is, so they were excited to recognize all the characters throughout the game and dance along.
The kids were able to easily navigate through Just Dance on their own which is great for those times when Mommy doesn’t want to boogie. There are three sections to the game – Just Create, Parents and Dance. Just Create is all about taking pictures and videos while dancing, Parents allows for parents to monitor progress and Dance is, you guessed it, all about Dancing. Just like with Just Dance 4, up to four people can play at once which makes it such a great game to enjoy with family or friends.
This version uses original music from many of the Disney movies and the shows from the Disney channel – my kids really liked that they were able to sing along to the songs while dancing. They included:
Classic Disney songs for the whole Family: Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Cinderella, Peter Pan, Tangled, Lilo & Stitch , Tinker Bell, Enchanted, The Muppets, Bolt, Mary Poppins, and Aristocats. Dances from the hottest Disney Channel shows: Shake It Up, Phineas and Ferb, Jessie , Hannah Montana, A.N.T. Farm, Wizards of Waverly Place, Camp Rock, High School Musical and Good Luck Charlie.
The game also has an added fun feature that my son really enjoyed called Balloon Mode that allows the players to earn more points while they compete with one another. Other options include creating your own playlists and Non-Stop Shuffle Mode for when you need to dance non-stop! I had to ask the kids to shut down the game because they were totally into it and not interested in stopping anytime soon. It made them sweaty and giggly and happy – another reason this game is a definite win as a family/kid game in my book.
