What’s that buzzing noise in the sheep shed? Oh, it’s just Ed
Yes, the blood-nutted troubadour
is just one act who features in this year’s JD model. He
joins numerous other current charty types – the usual suspects such
as Shakira, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Ariana Grande, Beyoncé, Iggy
Azalea, Selena Gomez, Bruno Mars - along with one or two songs that
somebody who’s older than 12 will know. Like what? Queen’s ‘Another
One Bites the Dust’ and, well, we guess a cover of Boney M’s ‘Daddy
Cool’ counts. Seriously, they could licence real Queen but not Boney
Yep, covers abound here, even that annoying ‘Blue (Da Ba
Dee)’ isn’t an original. We’ll forgive ‘Carmen (Overture)’ as Bizet
is kind of not alive now, but otherwise it seems lazy.
there’s much salvation at hand with Just Dance Unlimited.
Some 300 songs open up, with cool stuff if you hunt about a bit
(although Madness’ ‘Night Boat to Cairo’ is still missing – BOO!). A
three-month subscription comes with the game, which is decent – and
most people will be over the game by the time it expires.
Which isn’t necessarily fair, as it has lots to offer. While the
usual dance-dance-dance modes abound, along with workout and ‘World
Dance Floor’, there’s a very cool addition – a kids’ mode. While
those as musically snobby as us may argue the virtues of introducing
kids to some of the purely crap music here, we did delight in
watching our 6yo nephew bouncing around to 'Ghostbusters' (and it’s
not a cover!)
Your iPhone or Android device once again
functions as a controller via an app, or in the case of PS4 as
reviewed you can use the camera or the old bubble-on-a-stick Move.
An added bonus with the latter is that you can just sit on the couch
and waggle if you’re suffering post-PAX back and still score five
stars on most songs.
Despite another pretty shitty core song
list, Just Dance 2018 is polished to sheer(an) perfection.
