Just Dance, metascore 47

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Just Dance, metascore 47

That's it, I'm only looking at UK sites from now on since they seem to be the only 'journalists' that can actually write and have a good sense on the gaming community that they are representing. I'm getting tired of this site too with too many trolls and fanboys crowding out any logical argument that might be possible. Man the internet was and still is so full of promise but is just getting dragged down by illogical whackos with a soapbox :(

It should be worst game ever to sell 5 million copies when all is said and done. I'm glad a third party publisher has finally figured out the recipe for success on Wii.

What about Mario Party Wii?  It was so, so bad.

It's one of the best party games you can find in any console, especially if women and alcohol are in the mix.

 I trust this guy.  He knows what he is talking about.

There are no buttons to be pressed, no unlockables, no tiers of songs, no progression of any kind.

Yeah. Since when did games need any of these things? Especially unlockables, which is one of the most annoying "features" of current games we're forced to put up with. Even Nintendo can learn from this - it's idiotic when playing Mario Kart or Smash Bros at someone else's house with a group of friends and being forced to play with less content (less characters, vehicles, stages, etc) simply because the owner did not yet "earn" it.


edit: Wanted to add to those claiming this is the "worst best-selling game ever," that this game is getting great user reviews. The game is being praised, really. This can't be said about the other low scoring high sellers like Deca Sports or Game Party.

 

While unlockables aren't always the greatest, I don't really buy all of what you said.

What is wrong with a memory card?  I know some people don't have memory cards, but they are very inexpensive.

Buy one and put all of your saved stuff on it.  You know, like when you take your Miis to your friend's house.

 

As for Deca Sports, at least it is Mario Party Wii bad.  Now that games was just horrible.

The Wii doesn't work that way.



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

I think IGN is right. If I attach the controller to my fan I get the same score as I would get playing serious.

This game lack any form of gameplay since the motion detection is broken.

I only see this game working with NATAL.

As far as I know, you cannot transfer Smash Bros Brawl / Mario Kart Wii data. I'm forced to bring my own Wii around if I want to play with everything unlocked, and I do, as the people I know don't bother getting everything (thankfully the Wii itself is tiny).

What do you think about that? I think these kind of unlockables are more harmful than good. Buying SSBB first day, wanting to play it with friends, but unable to actually try out all the characters... I don't see how that benefits me at all.

"Just come back after I unlock all the characters and stages, guys!"



This game is a prime example of the growing disconnect most mainstream gaming journalists have with the tastes of the gaming population. Sure this game may suck to their target readers, which are 16-25 year old guys, but what they don't seem to understand is that this is not the only audience that likes to play games, and they do not represent the only gaming tastes out there.

There really needs to be some reviewers out there that better repressent the new expanded audience. Because clearly this game is fun to SOME people, selling as much as it is. I'd say right now, amazon is the best (and really the only) good choice to look for true mainstream opinion on games like these, as mainstream reviewers will only critique them based on their narrow 25 year old male vision of what a game should be.

The Wiiviewr on Youtube is a good one.

Megan Fox is a 10/10 to most guys.

Your mum however is 3/10 but to you she's 10/10...if you wanna nominate yr mum to be put on the cover of FHM/Maxim/Sports Illustrated, the editors of those magazines won't allow it even though she's a 10/10 to you.

Putting yr mum on the cover of FHM/Maxim/Sports Illustrated would ruin their reputation.

The same goes for the reviewers of Just Dance. If the reviewers gave Just Dance a score of 10/10 their reputation will be ruined.



But gaming isn't just restricted to the FHM crowd, and they like you are pretending it is.
