Our Wii has died and come back to life more times than I would like to admit. But, thankfully, it has come back to life every time (hint, if yours does this, unplug it for a couple days, let it take a “chill” and then try it again. Hopefully that works for you, too!).
It’s a good thing it comes back to life, because the girls have a great time playing all of the Just Dance games. It’s a great way for them to get moving in the house and also burn off a little energy before bed if they are a little wound up.
The newest one they like to play is Just Dance 2014. Of course, it has all of the newest popular songs on there and some fun dance moves just like the others we’ve played. Some of our favorites include:
- Katy Perry – “Roar” (which is a free download).
- Lady Gaga – “Applause”
- George Michael – “Careless Whisper”
- The Village People – “YMCA”
- Gloria Gaynor – “I Will Survive”
- Disney’s Aladdin – “Prince Ali”
- The Girly Team – “Flashdance…What A Feeling”
- The Sunlight Shakers – “Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In”
Just Dance 2014 is the sequel to Just Dance 4 with over 40 of the hottest tracks! There are some brand new and popular songs, as well as some classics. As an option, if you have a USB microphone, you can even sing along with the Wii version (as are other versions, too, I’m sure).
By far, the most popular and favorite is Aladdin’s Prince Ali. The girls have such a fun time dancing to it…however, they wish they could both be Jasmine. We do have to work on taking turns and also who gets to be “player one” and the boss of the game (dancing and lessons, yep!)
Of course, even though their little sister can’t play along, she has a great time trying. Just hearing the music and seeing it on the screen gets her excited and she starts shaking her booty.
Fortunately, her sisters are very understanding and give her a lot of room, too.
(What, you don’t have toys everywhere in your living room at the end of a long day? That’s just us. Pshaw…don’t tell me that!)
They have added some fun new features to Just Dance 2014 to improve it even more.
World Dance Floor: Dance with anyone anywhere in the world in Just Dance’s first-ever online multiplayer mode! Players join a virtual crew – made up of real-life friends or other Just Dance fans – and compete based on different themes (“Boys Vs Girls”, “Crew Vs Crew”). Players can also track their standing on global leaderboards, check out fun stats about other players around the world, and see community updates.
On Stage Mode: Own the spotlight in this new mode where one player will dance, lead two back up dancers, and even sing if they want! As the star of the show, the player can take it seriously and show off how talented they are, or just goof off with friends.
Party Master: Puppet Master mode has upgraded to the Party Master mode to give the player controlling the GamePad even more options to MC the party. Choose the next dance move, pick new songs, and even dish out silly challenges to up to four other players!
Custom Sweat Mode: Players can personalize their Just Sweat workouts by creating custom playlists and tracking calories. There’s also a new option to track calories in all gameplay modes, even outside of the dedicated Just Sweat mode.
