This review is from: Michael Jackson The Experience - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
You can trust the other great reviews this game is getting from the public. I am usually more of a 1st person/3rd person shooter i.e. modern warfare, resident evil, action adventure games.. However, my wife is a huge michael jackson fan, so I figured we would give it a shot. The game song tracks are awesome and the moves are pretty darn close to the real michael jackson moves.
I give the game 4 stars b/c of the design of the game. Nobody usually likes to sit through tutorials and such, but if you're not a dancer; these tutorials can be very handy. The game basically makes you jump straight into dancing to michael's moves or the backup dancers if available. The only way to unlock the dancing tutorials is to gain stars. You gain stars by how well you do when dancing to the songs. For a beginner, you'll be lucky to get an average of 2 stars per song.. It takes 250 some odd stars to unlock the thriller tutorial! Kind of a bummer, but the good news is by the time you have that many stars, you'll probably be pretty darn good. (I know what you're thinking, 1 full star off for not having the tutorial available...? Well, you will understand if you buy the game. Dancing does not come natural to the majority of people.. So something for game developers to think about.)
Fun for 1 - 4 players (local)
Only need 1 move controller (doesn't allow/need the use of two move controllers)
Dance moves are accurate
Great workout as well
Singing, it is cool that they allow you to choose whether you want to sing or dance in the game. However, this is no Rock Band when it comes to singing. It's just a simple kind of sing along. Words are provided and a gauge to see if you are on key. A great option if your friends don't like to dance or more over, look like a fool trying to dance!
Tutorials should have been available from the beginning.
Awesome game overall. I would recommend this product!
