Sweat, Blood and tears. That’s what you get when you turn on this game with the family. Sweat from your brow, Blood from accidentally smashing the controller into someone’s face and tears because your 3 year old “that’s not how Moana dances, dad”.

 

If you’ve lay any of the previous year’s titles then you know exactly what you’re getting into. This game is fun filled with tons of hours of fun put into a simple dancing game. The ultimate party game or family game night fun, there is no end to the amount of time to can spend dancing with friends and family, for fun or to win.

 

Gameplay

If you’ve never played A Just dance before, you’re in for a treat! Just Dance 2019 is a fun and exciting dance mimic game that will keep you dancing for hours. The dancing itself is very active and in time with the song you’re dance too, the moves range from simple dance movements to huge, professionally choreographed dance moves that you’ll probably look ridiculous doing. The modes are stretch across Kids Mode, Singleplayer, Local Multiplayer or the online multiplayer mode that allows you to dance against other players and watch yourself climb the ranks live as you bust a move or a knee if you’re me.

 

Design and Visuals

Just Dance is as insane and whacky as ever, bring some crazy characters into the dances and adding some awesome flashing lights and videos to go with your insane moves! The game is well designed with clean finishes to all the menus and in game HUD. Short and sweet, Just Dance nailed the simplicity of the games visuals by making it as perfect and boisterous as possible.

 

Music and Audio

Being a dancing game, you’d expect there to be great audio and music in the game. Unfortunately this is not the deal, the music lacks and I only recognized a few songs, however, if you pay to play and purchase the pass to the subscription based DLC then you get all the latest tracks and music, with your first month free (Compared to 3 months free on previous titles). The audio quality in game was experienced through Samsung 5.1 surround sound home theatre system and on a LGTV speaker system for comparison; Both were equally as good, with the obvious differences in the home theatre system quality, but the LGTV audio still put out quality sound and the game didn’t cheap out on the qulait y of the formats in the audio, which is expected but yeah, doesn’t always happen.

 

Overall

Overall, this game is a ton of fun and a heck of an exercise! Playing on your own can be fun, but the real fun comes in when you party up and play with friends. Experiencing this on both PS4 and Switch has been an awesome experience and I felt no comparison is needed in consoles as the game is that clean and finished.
