JUST DANCE 3

Ubisoft
Xbox 360/Kinect (also on Wii)

Everybody dance now! Or if you’re the Scissor Sisters, don’t. (Sotto voce) party poopers.

With the wheels leaping off Wii, the Just Dance juggernaut’s spreading its limber limbs to beefier consoles. That they now actually have motion control likely, possibly, maybe, perhaps helping a teensy bit.

Just Dance 3 has stiff Kinect competition from Dance Central (ooh, dance off!), so wisely sticks to its strengths. You could say DC is to JD as Professor Frink is to Barney Gumble, but that’s no slight on Just Burp... erm, Just Dance.

If we wanted a dance game at our party, we’d invite JD3. It’s easier for anybody to get into, especially with its two difficulties – party-friendly one-arm-and-boobs tracking, or ouchy-harder full body. Also, four can go at it simultaneously – just add alcomahol for lotsa fun with bandages and superglue. Before dropping wads on DLC, it has a beefier set list, with routines and characters tailored to each song – robots getting ‘Da Funk’, playing air instruments to Kiss’ ‘I Was Made for Lovin’ You’ and keeping mummy for Madness’ ‘Nightboat to Cairo’, an inclusion so inspired that we wanna hug whoever was responsible.

If those three songs don’t indicate the eclecticism here, try Wilson Pickett, Donna Summer, The Buggles, Bananarama and Queen – and that’s just for non gen-Y peeps. They can mindlessly suck on their Mika, BoB, Katy Perry, LMFAO and Duck Sauce, although we do lurve Cee Lo’s ‘Fuck You’, even if it’s the softcock butchered version here. There’s even a treat for How I Met Your Mother fans…

Elsewhere, ‘Just Create’ enables you to record your own routines and even upload them – finally we can immortalise the Michelle and Ferret dance! Otherwise, options abound from gameplay spicy-uppers to melting flab with ‘Just Sweat’.

Party perfect, JD3 is dancie num-nums.

take me back to the start...
