JUST DANCE 4

Ubisoft
Wii (also on PS3/PSN, Xbox 360/Kinect, Wii U)

Dance. Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance! Hang on – 1, 2,3... uh, that must be Just Dance 6. Give it a couple of years.

But out of respect for Chic we’re gonna say it anyway – Yowsah! Yowsah! Yowsah! Now that’s out of the way, we probably should attempt to blurt something vaguely relevant to this year’s model of Just Dance4, which you’d know if you’re paying attention - upon the page. Well, screen. It’s just plain white when we’re doing this, not pretty green (you know you’re soaking in it) like you see it. You lucky buggers!

Anyway, essentially JD4 is more of the same – another selection of songs, although not quite as adventurous as JD3. OK, so there’s They Might Be Giants’ ‘Instanbul (Not Constantinople)’, The B-52’s’ (YARGH, we’re in apostrophe hell!) ‘Rock Lobster’ and the official funkiest song in the history of everything, Stevie Wonder’s ‘Superstition’, but otherwise save for a bit of Rickrolling and the surprise assault of Europe’s ‘The Final Countdown’ it’s mainly standard chart boing-boing-boing-yo-buttocks dance fluff. Oh, and there’s some boy band called One Dimension or summat. Woo.

As usual, you follow various brightly-hued silhouettish beings about the screen – or more to the point you try to. The better you emulate, the more pointies you get. The more pointies you get, the more profit you get. Hang on, that’s underpants gnomes theory...

There are new dance battles – if you ever wanted to let Skrillex loose on Ricky Martin with a wubwubwub battering then here’s your chance - plus missions for each song and some alternate routines. Meanwhile, the ‘Just Sweat’ exercise mode has been tweaked a tad. Curiously you still can’t import tracks from any other JD or its many variants, a potential cash-spinner that Ubisoft seem somehow oblivious to.

JD4’s about as innovative as, ooh, most any modern chart song. But don’t the kids love it!

take me back to the start...
