Spoiled By Just Dance!,
This review is from: The Hip Hop Dance Experience - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I was super excited to see Hip Hop Dance as a selection in the Vine program. I love dancing and find the Wii Just Dance series to be a fantastic way to have fun and get fit without feeling like I am killing myself at the gym. But in general I was disappointed with the game.
While I liked the music and felt the graphics were good, the overall pace of the game was lacking. I like to keep moving when I dance, so I immediately clicked on "Dance Marathon" for non stop dance fun. Unfortunately, it isn't non stop fun because if you get low rankings it is game over. For someone looking to move and not so worried about scoring this is a turn off. Next I went to choose my own music. This included "break" periods where the dancer rolled on his head and did other moves that are impractical and impossible for all but the most advanced dancers - hey what is up with that! I thought the goal was for me to dance not watch someone show off.
The switch from one song to the next was not as intuitive as the Just Dance series. And it felt like a longer lag time between song changes - much like the first version of Just Dance.
Personally, I doubt I use this game much. I will stick with the Just Dance series and that is to bad because this had a lot of potential it just did not deliver.
