One of the most popular types of games it seems these days with gamers of all genres is the interactive music games. From the early days of the games with the electronic game controllers that mimic guitars and drum sets, are the newest fad which include using yourself entirely.
With the Microsoft Xbox 360 Kinect, gaming has gone to an all new level. By being able to use your whole body and visually being put into the game, the Kinect tracks your bodys real movement making you the controller. The Kinect is great for all ages. My kids love playing the Kinect with dance games and interactive learning games and Mom loves her workout games!!!
Ubisoft has come out with their newest Kinect dance title, Just Dance 4. It is for other game systems, but playing it on the Kinect is always a little more fun, in our opinion. Just Dance 4 has different modes which include a Battle Mode where you are going to go at it and compete head to head against other players for all around and all over. And if you want to have fun and get a great work out check out the expanded Just Sweat mode which includes workout sessions, a real calorie counter and more. The kids like to make their own videos so the Autodance and Just Dance TV let them be the stars of the show!
Along with the game modes are unlockable alternate dance routines for extra music tracks. For those true music lovers Just Dance 4 has more than 40 new songs, ranging from “Good Feeling” by Flo Rida, Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass, “Moves Like Jagger” by Maroon 5 ft. Christina Aguilera, “So What” by P!nk, “Disturbia” by Rhiana. So many great hits including “You’re The First, The Last, My Everything” by Barry White and “Jailhouse Rock” by Elvis Presley, there is something for everyone. You can also download more tracks and new songs by using the online in-game store.
Just Dance 4 is made for all the other major gaming systems out there and if you’re lucky to have landed the new Nintendo Wii-U, their version will include a special 5-player Puppet Master mode which lets one player take up the role as the “director. Using the new Nintendo Wii-U GamePad the director gets to alter dance routines in real time, add comments by writing on the screen, and act as a professional photographer taking pictures and video of all the action going on!
