4.0 out of 5 stars Good game, horrible interface (update), January 8, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Just Dance 4 (Video Game)
I bought this game as my family enjoyed Just Dance 3 and wanted to have an updated game. The songs are a good mix of old and new. The interface is somewhat lacking however. Instead of just moving your arm up and down and swiping across or using the controller to pick songs Just Dance 4 opted for a "push button" motion. It requires that you wave your arm around until you get near what you want, then point your finger in front of you as if sticking your arm through a fence to push a button on a wall. Once you're "locked" onto your selection, you pull your arm straight back towards your chest. Repeat this 3 or 4 times to get to dancing to a song. Beyond the interface, everything else is just as expected for the Just Dance series. Fun for the whole family, just make sure an adult does the navigating.

TL;DR

Pros
-Good mix of songs
-Good gameplay

Cons
-Interface is not easy to navigate (check update below)

UPDATE
After finally signing into Xbox Live(which I mostly never do), I've installed the latest update for the game which gives the ability to use the controller! It makes it so much better. Just wanted to let everyone know that the biggest annoyance has been fixed and the game is much more playable.

Yes, the interface is awful to use, but you can use the controller for it, which saves this game.

You're absolutely right. After updating, it does now give this functionality. Thanks for the heads up! I've updated the review to reflect the update.
