Just Dance 2
Rating: E - Everyone

The title says it all "Just Dance". Put it on and just dance and if Grandma did the Lindy, even she may surprise you. The heart of the experience is in Dance, Dance Battle and Sweat although I did work up a slight dampness just dancing. Up to four dancers using only the remote held vertically mimic a mirror image. There is also a stick figure showing you moves that are about to come. I found that using both got me perfect scores. Your score is constantly shown on the screen in a way that doesn't interfere with your following the steps.

There is a wide selection of music - some made for duets, with different steps. And the controls and the motion-tracking work nicely and you can even imagine that the remote is a mic. There are plenty of different takes on competition and Dance Battle mode - but I couldn't get anyone to join it - too good?

Sweat is a new addition - set your goal for how much weight you want to lose, dial-up Mild, Tough or Intense and go for it. I haven't tried it yet but the combination of dance, songs and sweat will have me doing it or maybe - just dance, feels so good.
