After being sorely disappointed with the DS and PSP versions of Michael Jackson: The Experience, this 3DS counterpart seems like a curious-enough release. After all, it is made several months after the others, and as such, it probably may not just be a simple rehash/port of the DS/PSP game.

Guess what? It isn't.

From what you can expect by now, Michael Jackson: The Experience is a rhythm-based game featuring the King of Pop dancing in one of his many different music video environments. There are 15 songs in the game, and considering the price the game can go by now, that's a steal and already well worth the money!

=The following songs are:=
THRILLER (You may make your purchase now)
Beat It
Smooth Criminal
Black or White
Billie Jean
Leave Me Alone
The Way You Make Me Feel
Blood on the Dance Floor
Don't Stop Til You Get Enough
Remember the Time
Speed Demon
Rock With You
and lastly, the newly released single, Hollywood Tonight

And each and every song is amazing and fun to listen to. If you count this as a video game soundtrack, then this may as well be one of the best video game soundtracks ever.

Like a good rhythm game, the notes sync perfectly with the songs being played (at least on Medium and Expert mode). The gameplay itself consists of swiping the stylus to make lines or such to match with the notes of the song (Which are represented by what motion you must make with the stylus).

I got this because I saw it used for under $12 at the store so I picked it up. I really like Michael Jackson a lot and I like playing rhythm games and with that in mind this game delivered. There are a good amount of unlockables in the game and you can even unlock the ability to just watch the songs without playing - which is nice.

The 3D function in the game works really well - I actually think the game looks much better playing in 3D than in standard 2D.

There are 15 MJ songs here - luckily all are available from the get go to play - the game pretty much pays for itself since you're essentially buying a greatest hits album with great quality original recordings from the King of Pop himself. The coolest part of this game is that every song is themed to mimic its real life music video counterpart - meaning, when you play "Rock With You" for instance, Michael is wearing his famous diamond glitter jump suit from the video - complete with the 70's lasers and fog! And this goes for every song in the game. You can unlock different gloves, which aid you in your performance/give you bonus points when you hit combos, etc.

As for the playability of this game it's decent enough. You swipe the stylus in different shapes in time with the music - as you would expect from any rhythm game of this type and it worked fine but my one big complaint is drawing the full circle shape - it just didn't register that I had drawn a full circle, counter clockwise or clockwise, and I got a "miss" because of it - sometimes it worked sometimes it didn't - maybe it's just me but the fact that I can do all the other shapes, even the half circles, just fine leads me to believe that full circle shape is a bit wonky.

When it has came down to Michael Jackson, musically he was one of the most influential and dynamic entertainers of all-time. While he was definitively troubled during his final days on Earth, it was his dancing, singing and his all around star power that has made the most everlasting impact on his fans. But with Michael Jackson: The Experience, the dance games has delivered well on the Wii and the Xbox 360. But for the Nintendo DS last year, it failed to moonwalk. Now, the new version on the Nintendo 3DS, it is exactly the same loss of stride. While it is fun to watch the moves through some of Michael's biggest songs, it honestly isn't as good as is with the home consoles. While you do have a lot of Michael's hits like Black Or White and Smooth Criminal, it just isn't as fun to play. While Michael Jackson will always be remembered as the King Of Pop, Michael Jackson: The Experience was just not what the Nintendo 3DS needed.

Michael Jackson the experience on the 3DS is just like the ps vita version. Where you have to do a certain amount of stuff to make your videos better. But if i were you this game doesn't work to good in 3D because you have to draw the lines with your styles on the bottom. So if you get this game don't play it in 3D because it's hard enough in 2D but if i were you i get the ps vita version i know it's the same thing but the controls are a lot better. But if you only have a 3DS then this is for you.
