One of the aspects that attracts the most attention are the choreographies. They are nice, colorful and know how to adapt to each musical theme. This delivery returns to take care of them, through 40 new songs among which are Naughty Girl (Beyoncé), Blackmail (Shakira / Maluma), Side to Side (Ariana Grande / Nicki Minaj), Love Ward (Hatsune Miku), as well as more issues out of pots like Super Mario Bros. in the case of Nintendo Switch , especially indicated to make the bow.
As in musical matters it is difficult to guess, it is best to take a look at the list. It is undeniable that there is a variety of artists, although not so much of styles, beyond the appearance of songs like “Another One Bites The Dust” (Queen). In short, that assessing a list is not easy,
although we should not forget Just Dance Unlimited , which returns with more than 300 songs for those who always want more. There are three months of free trial before moving to the payment format, as was the case in previous years.
Evolution to the “despatito”
Before entering to evaluate if this delivery is worth it, it is worth remembering that Just Dance proposes, for several deliveries, the possibility of using the mobile as a motion detector . Many of you may prefer the Move, the Camera, the Joy-Con or the Kinect. However, I consider that the possibility of using the mobile device through the Controller App is the great advance carried out by this series in recent times. End the nuisance of peripherals … and also can participate up to 6 users, each with their mobile.
Besides, I’ve noticed that motion detection is polished with each delivery. It is not perfect, but it is enough to have a good time in the company of friends, which is what it is all about. Mind you, watch out for involuntary mobile releases: it can be dangerous. Another notable aspect is the improvement of the interface , more direct, simple and elegant. They are small things that help make the experience more and more satisfying.
Elements of other years are preserved as such, such as creating playlists or counting the calories you burn with each song. Then there are things that change their name, but they are still there, as is the case of the remixes introduced in the previous edition. In a last link we have aspects such as more incentive to play, with a multitude of prizes among which we find collectibles and additional choreographies.
If you have been out of Just Dance for several years, this delivery can be a good option
There are few news, we will not cheat you. Just Dance 2018 integrates daily goals that gives us coins to get unlockable. However, it is the new little thing we found. In fact, that the game itself boast of putting the Kids Mode is quite significant of the situation. This modality is focused on the youngest of the house, with specific choreographies designed by experts in child development. It is a great idea, we applaud it, but its importance within the group is limited.
The conclusion is that if you have been hanging out of Just Dance for several years, this delivery may be a good option. Many contents and options that give for several afternoons of fun. If you tried the edition of the previous year, which certainly proposed more things, the feeling can be quite decaffeinated. Therefore, each situation must be assessed independently.
For example, if you have Nintendo Switch, your version is probably the most interesting one. Five choreographies are added that take advantage of the Joy-Con and, eye on this, the HD vibration . In particular, it is one of the few uses that are worth it to this day, beyond the courageous attempt he made in his day 1-2-Switch. Again, this knows little, and we will have to wait for if Ubisoft remembers that a saga can not live only by inertia.
That is precisely the feeling that Just Dance 2018 gives. It dances by inertia from the applause of its audience in the past. But you know, not even the stars are forever. The Just Dance series has shone all this time, but to continue doing so it must reinvent itself , even if that means structural changes that, surely, will bring controversy and risks. It is what has the weight of fame.
