5.0 out of 5 stars Cynical me says- brilliant!!!! 5 Jun 2011
By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had NO hopes of this game- I just wanted to try it for the completeness of judging every Kinect title on its own merits, without the partisan prejudice of others.

I loved it. I AM NOT a Jackson fan, and to say that it was really great fun must prove something! I've tried all the other Kinect dance games and been very unimpressed to date (the only one I liked was Zumba Fitness, which even with an early patch crashed repeatedly like an Airbus). This went through the songs in full, and had a separate, if not exhaustive dance learning section for the song I chose. The video performance was a little more involved, with some helpful six foot zombies bouncing around behind my slightly low res avatar.

It's Ubisoft again- who produced the slightly flaky, but best of breed early fitness game, Your Shape Fitness Evolved. However the Kinect game compares to the remote shaking Wii version or to the original gyrating moves in the real music videos- I don't CARE- THIS IS REALLY GOOD FUN! So far very few Kinect titles have made it past the rental stage, but this has to be one of them.

Destined to become a hit with ex Philippine prison inmates, I'm sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you ever want a workout "this is it!" 23 April 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Now unless you are a HUGE Mj fan then this is the game for you.

The graphics are amazing the game is amazing what more can i say? Not many games let you listen to the whole track of a song and this does. It's also a great workout, every time i do this i end up feeling like i have been to the gym, and that's great because who enjoys going to the gym? Well some people probably do but the point I'm making is if you want a good workout then this is great because you get so lost into trying to get the stars on the game...let me explain..throughout the track every move is counted, by the timing and the accuracy and is built up into points and goes to the top left of the screen and turns into stars out of 5. Back onto the workout side of things I've sided away from my workout DVDs and turned to this, i love MJ and for this game to have been brought out is amazing, never could i do the moves on my own (although attempted and failed) this is a little bit of a tutor to some of his moves, OK it's not bang on most of the time, but hey who cares! You don't realise how much work your putting in! :)

The game consists of the stage surrounded by fans and your silhouette, you also have backing dancers to go with the hype. (you can use the dancers to judge your next move or what you need to do) to the right of the screen at the bottom you get your move cards, OK i will whole heartily admit that you can't see them very well but the more you play the tracks, the more you get used to them, (I've learnt the whole of the thriller song already so i know what's coming just need the cards to remind me!

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing 3 May 2011
By Dotty
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
What a truly disappointing game. The promise and potential of the title as well as the source material itself (some of the most exciting and truly unique choreography ever) made this game something I was genuinely excited about.

Seeing limited versions on other platforms and then experiencing the innovation of Dance Central on the Kinect, this made the this version seem like the absolute perfect fit for the title. At best, the Wii version for example still involves some very limited tracking, while the Kinect version promises to track your whole body and furthermore actually put you into the game itself (providing a projection of the player instead of an avatar). As such I awaited this release with baited breath. But simply put, the game cannot hold a candle to Dance Central and worse still does no justice whatsoever to the source material.

Choreography here is shockingly poor, basically you are asked to pose in order, following backing dance routines rather than trying to emulate Jackson himself in any capacity. Furthermore the difficulty allows for absolutely no learning curve or indeed progression, given that songs have a set difficulty that cannot be changed. The genius of Dance Central is to offer a truly fluid choreography which flows from move to move and that develops from easy to harder to hardest. As such moves remain fluid at every difficulty and yet are elaborated upon as you progress. In this game however, each song has only a few options (dance, dance and sing, "performance" for the most part, though less in some cases) and each option has just a singular and set difficulty.

Seriously. All the haters on here have no actual point. There are pauses in the dancing part here and there. Yes.

It's called MJ EXPERIENCE! It's about the whole performance, thats the point to it. Singing and dancing together.

Ok.. so I did Thriller to start out. And indeed I got a reeeeeally high score. Also.. it shows you yourself in a mad electricy looking selfness. It's rather cool!

The moves are spot on. It scores you on how close you get. One guy complained there were no difficulty levels. Can I just point something out with that? What were they gonna do, limit the moves? It's better to play through the whole thing and just get scored on how good you are. It doesn't attack you for being quite poor or average, it just moreso tells you when you're doing really awesome. This is a proper game.

Now my opinion is clear but I'll state it anyway. I love it. I really don't think you could feel closer to becoming MJ. Period. If you're mad, then dress up like MJ to do the dances.. 'cos you'll sure as hell look like you're MJ on the screen if you're good enough. OK.. a Michael version of yourself then hehe. But thats it :)

I bought this to dance to, and it does EXACTLY what I expected it to do. If Dance Central looked this awesome to dance along to, it'd be a total treat! Dance Central is NOT A BAD GAME! It's also a high scorer. But this is a specific game, and indeed I score it top marks because it does what it's meant to.

People.. this game's 15 quid. Grab a hold of yourself and turn on one click ordering ;) I'd say buy it now but that's a rip haha ;)

Please, do thank me for my review after you fall in love with this game :)

Happy MJ'n :D
