Were you fan of those dance off games that were big in arcades back in 2009 and 2010? I remember going to the Weirs Beach board walk for the summers and having lines of people waiting to jump on the dance pads that had arrows on them and try to master the moves of the popular dance songs. And, if you weren't dancing or waiting to dance, you were standing around and watching the people dance. Some may have looked crazy, but more the most part, you couldn't help but be impressed by the dancers as they were always breaking a sweat as the slayed the different dance moves, trying to score the most points by not missing dance steps, to be declared the dance champion. While I never mustered up the courage to jump on the stage and dance, I did wonder how much fun it would be to try.
Thankfully, years later, you can now dance in your own home with your family to some of the best songs of today. Yes, you may look silly, but the excitement and fun of it all is what matters. And, when you get dancing with friends and family, you can help but get your heart racing, and you always have a smile on your face, as you are having a blast.
A few days ago, I was sent a copy of the new Just Dance 2017 game from Ubisoft to review with my family. It couldn't have come at a better time as we were having family and friends over for Thanksgiving. I don't know about you, but after the meal is eaten, I find we all retreat to the couch or sit around the dining room table, chit chatting, but wanting to do something more fun. This is where Just Dance 2017 fit in perfectly and provided us with hours of laughs, memories and fun. :-)
Here is more about Just Dance 2017, which would make for a great family gift this holiday season...
The biggest music video game franchise of all time is back with Just Dance 2017! Dance your heart out to top 40 favorites such as Worth It by Fifth Harmony and Sorry by Justin Bieber.
The whole family can get up and moving with the improved Just Dance Controller app, which allows you to play with up to 6 players at once.
This year’s version also features an awesome new dance mode called Just Dance Machine, where players use their dance energy to power up a spaceship and send some stranded aliens back to their home planet!
What is new about this version of Just Dance is that you don't need a game controller to play. Instead you download the free app to your smartphone and use your phone as the controller as you move and groove about.
Pretty neat, huh? And, this app, which is easy to download and install, lets 6 players be connected at once. So, my girls and I were able to dance along their cousins and my parents at the same time, without having to sit it out or wait a long period of time for our turn to dance and shine.
The Just Dance app lets you navigate the game menu with ease, so you can choose your favorite song to dance to and set the player mode, without needing to pick up a game controller, which I really think is neat and so convenient.
I think the hardest part of the this whole dance game experience is choosing which song to dance to, as the game includes 40 of today's hottest tracks, plus over 200 more songs when you sign up for Just Dance Unlimited.
You can get the full tracklist at Justdancegame.com, if you are curious what songs you can choose to dance to. Don't worry of lack of selection, as all the tracks are perfect for letting loose and letting your inner dancer shine through.
We had a blast trying out the new Just Dance 2017 game from Ubisoft. I wish I could have shared video I took and photos, but my relatives were not up for me sharing photos and said if I did, they would share baby photos of me in my birthday suit as pay back. So, I opted to leave the photos out. :-)
But, even without photos, you can tell that we had a blast with with new dance game, and I know you and your family will, too. You don't have to be a dance pro...come on, I had fun and I was born with two left feet and no rhythm. So, if I could do it, you can, too!
This game is a blast and one you will want to pull out when family and friends come to visit. It provides hours of endless laughs, and will be a game you will also be talking about when you get together.
So, what are you waiting for? Pick up the new Just Dance 2017 and get your dance crew together, and get dancing. You are going to love this game!
