There is nothing I like more than a bit of dancing, in fact I even sometimes go along to the local PopDance classes. It really helps lift the mood and is a fun way to get fit. The kids also like to dance, our infamous bedtime disco’s going down a treat each time. That’s why when I was asked to review Just Dance 2 on the Wii I was more than happy to oblige.
I like the Wii console as I find it so much more intuitive than the PlayStation. In fact, it’s the only computer game console that I have ever used with any longevity, mainly for fitness games and the iPlayer but it’s a start. Considering the hubby actually collects computer games consoles this is high praise.
Just Dance 2 is a really fun game which you can play with the kids or if you have some friends over it might make a for fun after a few drinks. It’s really simple you just hold the Wii remote and the nunchucks and copy the moves on the screen. If you have two left feet like the hubby this will prove a challenge but gets better after a couple of pints of lager. The soundtrack is perfect, all the classics (well, the ones I consider classic and dance to at PopDance) and it’s really tempting to sing along as well. The inclusion of Wham makes it ideal for me as I can relive my youth, of course Toddler Boy likes the Beastie Boys, but then he would!
We have been dancing and laughing like mad, I hate to say it, but it has bought some real joy to our household. I’m off to buy Just Dance now, as I think I have discovered another fantastic way to get the kids to do something other than watch the television. Oh, and I quite like it. Ahem. Well, there is a sweat mode so it’s part of my fitness campaign. If you want to make Christmas Day go with a swing, quite literally, you can buy a copy here.
