Our family is a big fan of dance games and party games for the Nintendo Wii. We bought the original Wii the same day it was released (lucky us!) and since then, we've played just about every version of the Just Dance games. This week was the first time we had a chance to play Just Dance Disney Party.
Every time I get a new Just Dance game, I expect it to be exactly like the other versions and am always surprised at the differences. Of course there are similarities: You dance to music and try to get better each time.
Just Dance Disney Party is different in a few key ways. #1 - All of the music selections are kid-friendly, Disney songs. #2 - The game proceeds as an adventure that encourages the kids to collect stars and pop balloons. #3 - The dance moves are Waaaayy easier than any other Dance game.
Of all the Just Dance games, my kids liked this one the best. The moves are so much easier, the music slower, and they like popping balloons and collecting stars. They felt like they were really good at this game.
As an adult, the music was horrible. I wouldn't want to dance to it....ever. Of course, I danced along with the kids and tried to collect stars. But I was over it after a song or two. I prefer the music on the other Just Dance titles.
To be fair, I am not a Disney fan at all. I think most Disney movies (with the exception of Pixar collaborations) are super boring, so this definitely impacted my view of the music.
As a kids game, it's great. Like the other Just Dance games, you can have two to four kids dancing at once. They love to compete against each other and work together to collect as many stars and points as possible. Parents do not have to worry about inappropriate lyrics or images with this game.
There is still time to pick up a copy in time for the holidays. You can find Just Dance Disney Party at Amazon for under $20 or at Toys R Us.
