Just Dance 2019 he is shameless about what he presents: flat, partying fun. You will think that we live in glory days from the beginning of 2000 after only a few songs. It provides almost everything you can expect from this kind of title, with only a few issues related to design and transactions, to slightly ease the mood.
Just Dance 2019 contains 40 tracks on the disc. These are quite well-known pop hits, RnB and Club from last year, and I recognized most of them, even though they do not match what Da Youf approves these days. Think about the Finezja Bruno Mars and Havana by Camilla Cabello, and you'll be on the right track. There were other cool older selections, such as Elton John's Still Standing, but in general, you've looked at the previous 18 months for titles. In general, I did not think it was the strongest set list I've ever seen, but it's definitely a useful service.
Songs can be unlocked, but you'll discover that all the main songs have been sorted out quite quickly, and the only ones that need time to unlock are rare remixes and harder versions of existing songs. So you are not long protected from the main content.
The gameplay is of course the main goal here. On PS4 and Xbox consoles, you can use the peripherals of various dance companies, and on the Switch you use the Joy-Cons function that detects motion, but for those of us who do not have any of these options, consider an interesting alternative.
You can download the application on your smartphone, and then connect it to the console and hold it in your dominant hand and let it follow the movement. You also select the menu functions using your phone, so you can leave your controller alone after synchronizing. I noticed that it works better than expected and had a great sense of tracking my movements. All you have to do is remember that it will not track anything if your hand holding the device does not move at all, but the overall rhythm seems to move your body in a natural way that keeps the phone moving.
I have a Huawei P20 Pro, which is a large phone, especially in its housing, but it turned out that it works great. I could imagine a little slipping if you do not have a decent grip because of course there is no strap on your wrist, but in total I have not experienced any opportunity in which I threw the phone across the room.
What you're actually dancing is a kitschy, cartoon-styled image on the screen that dances, and you're going to reflect every move he makes while playing the song. In general, it works quite well and I think projects and photos are quite interesting, even if they were quite trivial and too colorful all the time. I would like there to be a mode where you can only practice one specific part of the song because I had to repeat the whole song if I missed one trick.
Other major offline modes are sweat mode, which is an intense mode for exercise, and a baby mode that is designed to let small creatures take over your home in your home. Indeed, I spent many hours with my nieces and nephews who sing loudly and repeat their favorite song many times, so I definitely say they found the game exciting.
Completing the songs and gaining better results brings you Mojo, the currency in the game that allows you to play a gambling game to unlock various features, stickers and designs for your profile, as well as several additional songs with remixes. This is a very mobile game that I think is the point. I really did not see any incentive to polish cosmetics that were not very interesting, but I suppose if Ubisoft gets some extra money out of it, it's more power for them.
The game on the Internet is interesting in some respects, because there are seasonal events and I can only describe it as a joint dance like "battle boss fight", in which you and other players have to join forces to complete the challenge. It gives the game some longevity, but we all know that this is an annual release and everyone expects you to receive another title next time. This is a series with ten installments from 10 years.
My feeling of hatred for this game appears when you finish 40 songs and wonder what else you are going to do. Then, the game will insidiously offer a Just Dance Unlimited subscription, with a 30-day free trial, after which you have to pay the real amount of money. Just Dance Unlimited is a way to get access to over 200 songs, many of which you like to dance.
At this point, it becomes clear that all this is a way to get you to pay for the Spotify-esque subscription. Even worse is if your children love the game and require that you get them for them. It occurs in prices similar to Spotify, around R70 in local money for monthly access or R50 for only one day if something like that happens. The only reason I do not hate him is that the 30-day free trial is included, and I'm sure I'll end up with that title by making a fool of myself against my favorite songs and leaving him.
At the end of the day, Just Dance 2019 is a modern game created in a modern game climate in which different forms of gamification and monetization are the norm. I did not think it was enough to discourage me, I just looked at it with cynical contempt.
At the end of the day it is a pleasant experience, and even more fun with friends or family. It has a clear interface and design and provides everything that it needs professionally. It is not deep, but it does not have to be that way when everyone laughs and sings together.
The results are here at the end, but it is not really a game that is easy to get – I can only compare it with others in my field, and it's a premiere title in a very niche field that says something.
Just watch your credit cards if your children are nearby.
