Nintendo Wii


History was made in September 2006 when Nintendo released their new game console Wii that has taken the hearts of many gamers around the globe. Its innovative way of playing is so refreshing that they are must-haves for every household. It is so much fun to use because it’s interactive; which also presents a challenge for the producers because they have to constantly think of games that would be good entertainment for just about everyone.

Today, they have moved a level up with the introduction of their newest dance craze Just Dance. There was a time when dancing was so popular in arcades and later on found their way to households using dance pads, otherwise known as dance mats or dance platforms. Last year, Wii released its own version of dancing, Just Dance.

Just Dance functions on a different level because you don’t have to push buttons and unlock levels or any progression of that kind. All you have to do is - just dance. You just have to follow the dancer on your screen doing the actual steps to the beat of the song. This Wii game offers songs from different genres with a wide range of difficulties from easy to the most difficult.

Being a first, the game has areas that they could definitely improve upon. Generally, dancing has to be perfect in timing and execution; and the same goes for Just Dance. People who are into dancing or what you would call “natural” find it quite easy to follow the tempo and the dance steps; but for beginners or those who haven’t really done much dancing it can be quite a problem.

Likewise, some find it challenging enough as points is given for every step correctly followed and you get a total score at the end of the song. Others just find it simply boring. If not for the “red light/green light, Strike-A-Pose” point system of elimination, where the Last One Standing is declared the winner, there really is nothing to do that resembles a challenge. You can, in fact, easily memorize the moves and steps and just flail away.

Just Dance could have also fared better with the graphics and layout department. The dancers are dressed appropriately according to the song and everything is colorful and vibrant but the “main characters” you have to mimic are just silhouettes, which could have been more realistic if they didn’t appear like shadows. The design is overly simple where they could have added more creativity to improve it.

With all these flaws, the game can still be great entertainment as a family activity or when you want to keep guests occupied. It can be quite competitive for small group gatherings with the multiplayer phase which allows up to four players to dance off and see who’s the greatest. It can be a delightful experience for “bonding moments” where happy memories are made to last a lifetime. But if you’re not the sentimental type, this might not be your cup of tea.
