Just Dance 2 is the newly released dance sequel from Wii. The game is designed to get the nation moving and grooving to a whole bunch of different genres of songs and styles of dance.
The songs can be played either in full or part, depending how much you would like to dance. The songs and their choreographies differ from robotic dance moves in Benny Bengasi's "Satisfaction" to tribal dances in Sorcerer's "Dagomba".
Graphically, Just Dance 2 sticks to the simple template that Wii games tend to have. The sections are clearly defined by large simple text like 'Just Dance', 'Just Sweat' and 'Dance Battle.' The on-screen choreographer that you must mirror in order to get points is a simple outline of a girl or boy's body, with clothes to match the type of song and dance.
This game would be great for parties, or having a few friends round. It's fun to play by yourself and there are plenty of songs to keep you going for quite a while. The game has the longevity for it to be replayed a good few times without getting bored but it's definitely more fun with a friend or a group.
Overall, Just Dance 2 is a fun way to get a bit of exercise whilst improving your dance moves. The graphics are a little bit boring and some of the songs such as Junior Seniors "Move Your Feet" and Outkasts "Hey Ya" are a bit dated and could have been replaced with more up-to-date songs - although Katy Perry's new single "Firework" is available as a download. But dancing to songs such as the Jackson Five's "I Want You Back" and Tina Turner's "Proud Mary" more than make up for that.
