Michael Jackson The Experience for Nintendo Wii
A fantastic dance game featuring Michael Jackson
Alright, everyone knows grown men shouldn't be playing a dance video game unless its Dance Dance Revolution at an arcade that still stocks games that were popular a decade ago. This game is one of the few exceptions. Michael Jackson was not just the King of Pop, he was the ultimate entertainer and a phenomenal dancer. Every guy wishes they could dance like Michael Jackson. Thanks to this game, I'm taking a step in the right direction.
Modes of play: There are many different ways you play this game. There is practice mode, which will allow you to get better without having to worry about failing. Once you're confident in your dance skills you can try competitive mode. There are a total of 26 songs in this game, including epics like Thriller. You can invite a friend over for Co-Op play, which will have the two of you playing together for a common cause (which is to dance like the Gloved One, of course), or going against each other in a one on one battle. Invite a few more friends over and you can play 4 player multiplayer mode, which is just insane and a great way to entertain people at a party. Heck, this game could be the whole party.
Songs: Some of the songs available in this game include Thriller, Beat It, Smooth Criminal, Billie Jean, and Black or White, among many others.
Graphics: This isn't really a graphics-driven game, so it's not really an issue that the graphics feature what appears to be a green-screened Michael Jackson with various backgrounds behind him that relate to the music videos for the songs being played. The graphics are really a non-issue. The interface is still really good.
Controls: Nintendo really shows off the capabilities of the Wii Remote (which is like 6 years old now!) with this game. Each player only needs one remote. You do not need a Wii Fit Balance Board for this game.
Overall rating: 9.0 out of 10. This game has received stellar reviews online, and I can see why. It's a great way to entertain up to 4 people (and actually a lot more as everyone likes to watch people try to dance) for hours at a time.
