Cady and James have loved all of the Just Dance games that have ever come out. This year I got the opportunity to review Just Dance 2015. The kids were SO excited when it arrived in the mail and couldn’t wait to try it out.
Of course the first 15 (or more) minutes were spent scrolling through the song list so they could pick their favorites, and there were a LOT of great booty-shakin’ songs to choose from, including:
- “Bang Bang” – Jessie J, Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj
- “Best Song Ever” – One Direction
- “Happy” – Pharrell Williams
- “Black Widow” – Iggy Azalea Ft. Rita Ora
- “Maps” – Maroon 5
- “Birthday” – Katy Perry
- “Bad Romance” – Lady Gaga
- “Holding Out For A Hero” – Bonnie Tyler
- “You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)” – Dead Or Alive
- “Let It Go” – Disney’s Frozen
- “I Love It” – Icona Pop Ft. Charli XCX
- “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” – Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell
- “Get Low” – Dillon Francis & DJ Snake
- “Diamonds” – Rihanna
- “Walk This Way” – Run-DMC & Aerosmith
- “Don’t Worry Be Happy” – The Bench Men
- “Epic Sirtaki” – The Bouzouki’s
- “The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)” – Ylvis
As you can see, there is something to get every age group up and shaking what their mommas gave them. Or something. Here are a few of my kids’ favorites:
Another thing I really like about the 2015 version are the improved graphics. I tried to snap a photo from my television while the kids were playing, but it really doesn’t do the game justice.
I can’t put it all in technical language, but I was seriously impressed with the animation and just the visual display of the game and thought it was much better than previous versions.
“Can we play Just Dance?” Is a constant refrain every time Cady has friends over for a visit so I know that the kids loving playing the game. What I love is that this is something both of my kids enjoy doing, they can do it together, it is simple enough that they can be successful, AND it gets them up off their feet to play instead of keeping them stuck behind a tablet or computer screen.
I also really like that Just Dance has partnered with Stomp out Bullying to spread the message that it is okay for everyone to dance to their own beat. I love companies that support a great cause. Also, the songs and, sometimes wacky, choreography in Just Dance 2015 allow kids to let loose and be themselves while having a great time.
Have you ever played Just Dance? What do you like about it?
