Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I held off on the Wii version to get this for the Kinect. Major disappointment. I'm a Dance Central fan and couldn't wait for this game to come out.

I got release day delivery, and practically raced home from work eager to try out the MJ game. First song I picked was Smooth Criminal....the dancing was so-so, but I thought- surely it must be because I'm doing it on the easiest level....replayed the song in Performance mode....same moves, now singing was added to the mix. Not the Michael Jackson workout I'd hoped for....

All your favorite songs
Great stages (this is one area where I'm glad I got the Kinect version)
Really hard to get a dance move wrong
the kinect captures your movements and clothing to reflect it on your on-screen liquid avatar (think Your Shape in true color)

Hardly any dancing
Hardly any dancing
Where's the dancing?
Did they forget to add dancing?
Oh, and you can't turn off the singing mode

If you're hoping for an exercise/dance game, then this is going to disappoint. If you're looking for some relaxed, karaoke night, beer drinking game play-- then this might fit the bill.

***Update 4-17-11****Giving Kinect and extra star******
I went out and bought the PS3 version and gained a different reference point to review the Kinect version. The PS3 version is great for a workout, not as fun or natural as Dance Central on Kinect...or even as MJ Experience Kinect, but it's definitely a workout. Seeing the leg work on the PS3 version (which only tracks your right hand), if they had replicated this on the Kinect version, 90% of players would've been alienated because most of us are incapable of even [remotely] replicating the King of Pop's dance moves...

1.0 out of 5 stars Why did they screw up the kinect version April 14, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
The Wii version of Michael Jackson the Experence is very fun. You feel like the moves you're doing are pretty close to what you remember from the videos. You feel like you're Michael Jackson. The kinect version takes out what makes those games fun, dancing like Mike. I really hate ubisoft for messing this game up. All they had to do was create a controller free version of the wii game. Instead they wanted to crush the hearts of everyone looking foward to the kinect version of this game. You can't dance to every song. When you do dance it's slow and boring and feels nothing like how michael jackson does them. You can never get into a groove because the dancing is broken up by pauses where you just stand there for 3 secs. The singing portion works ok as long as the volume on your tv is turned down. However you don't have to sing you can just hum to the beat. The UI and navigating the menus is pretty good. Even the load screens are cool. Too bad the actual gameplay is horrible.

This game uses Ubisofts Virtual Projection Technology to put you in the game. You can see a silhouette of yourself dancing and singing onstage. This is very cool to look at, however not fun to play. A better implementation would have been a hard mode were you do the whole routine from the wii version by memory. Then on completion it shows you how you did next to the real mike avatar. That would've been very cool. Once again I really hate ubisoft for screwing this game up.

Buy the PS move or Wii version if you want to dance like mike and have fun.

1.0 out of 5 stars I am speechless! July 7, 2011
By lexi
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I made the mistake of playing the wii version first and that was so so much fun. So when this game came out I went and purchased a brand new Xbox 360 along with the Kinect to play this game. Needless to say, I have kept the Xbox and the Kinect, but this game went right back to the store. The whole time I was playing the game I was waiting for the "Michael Jackson Experience" unfortunately I never got it. The Que cards are to low on the screen and the games doesn't recognize some of your movements. Thriller is boring, Smooth Criminal was just upsetting, BAD was just plain bad and Beat It was the icing on the cake. If you have a phobia about looking fat, then this is not the game for you. If you have played the wii version, keep the memory alive and don't buy this game. If you are expecting to see cool looking dancers in the back ground and not a feminine looking guy doing aerobic exercises and you standing in the middle going what the "Heck" then this is definitely not the game for you!! My BAD for not reading the reviews before purchasing the game...sorry MJ

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible version! May 22, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
What would possess them to make the xbox version horrible? Maybe Sony and nintendo paid Ubisoft to make it this bad because xbox was running away with the kinect technology. The reason I bought the xbox was because of dance central and this game. There's no dancing in here and its so slow it doesn't seem like you are dancing like MJ. WTH?

Well at least dance central is still the bomb. Way to go ubisoft. Xbox you should be mad with them as they just seriously hurt your product on purpose.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun game, a must for MJ fans April 13, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I own Dance Central and love that game so I will compare Michael Jackson: The Experience to it. I had been anticipating this game for months.
When you first start, skip the MJ Dance School. MJ Dance School are videos of 3 dance instructors demonstrating signature MJ moves. However, they go too fast for most people to follow. I felt frustrated and hoped that this was not the only training video for the game since the dance break down for Dance Central was so good. After finishing watching all of MJ Dance School, I selected Solo. This is where you'll find the songs and then can select the practice mode.

MJ vs. Dance Central dance lessons:
In Dance Central, you select an animated dance avatar who takes you step-by-step for each move of the dance routine. You get to practice each move several times with feedback by the little boombox. DC takes you through the entire dance routine. In MJ, your dance instructor is a motion captured dancer who teaches you a segment of the dance routine one time. If you need more practice, you need to select that segment from the menu again. The advantages of MJ's practice mode is that you can practice just a segment of the dance vs. DC which you have to do the entire routine. However, DC makes it nice where there's no interruption of practicing the entire routine.

Dance Avatars:
In DC, you can select from a list of animated dancers. You can either use the default character for the song or change it. You can also unlock new clothes for the character. In MJ, the dance avatars are images of people captured on computer and they are dressed in the style of the appropriate MJ song/video. You cannot change them. In Black and White, what is really cool is that the avatars change several times in the song to mimic the music video.
