ace and friends thoughts

We've been Just Dance loyal fans since it's inception. Our household was anxiously awaiting the release of Just Dance 4. Since it's arrival to our home, we've been playing it non-stop. It's truly addictive! The game play itself is a lot of fun and quite entertaining. As the dance moves require you get up and move... you will definitely break a sweat.

There are many current hits that if you are a Top 40 fan like me, you will recognize and enjoy. Although some of the dance moves were a little advanced for our kids, all of us had a great time laughing and dancing along.

The noticeable new feature to this series is the addition of a Battle Mode, allowing players to compete in a six-round dance off. In addition there is the ability to unlock alternate choreography for some of the songs. My kids loved to challenge each other in the Battle Mode. 

The Sweat Mode has also been improved with the expansion of the mode itself. It allows players to get a pretty tough workout based on the choice of music selected. This mode also features an on-screen calorie counter to monitor if you are working hard enough (or just moving your remote fast or slow). Workout can be as short as 10 minutes to an intense 45 minutes session. This mode is fun and my favorite of all the different options. 

The only issue that I noticed with this {Wii} game in particular was that some of the arm movements aren't recognized as well with the Wii remote. The dance moves are pretty easy and are typically repeated throughout the entire song which makes it easy to dance and pick up.

Final Thoughts: Overall, Just Dance 4 surpassed my expectations. The game is certainly entertaining and fun for the whole family. Now go out and get it.... you will not be disappointed! Lots of dancing FUN!

This looks like so much fun. We have not tried the 'Just Dance' games, and I'm not sure why. The girls love to move! This might make a great holiday gift. The'battle mode' sounds just like something they coul get into:)
