Just Dance Three was released October 11, 2011 and now on PlayStation Move and Xbox Kinect. This high-energy game will keep you dancing for hours. From family to friends, young or old, Just Dance 3 will get you off the couch and make you want to just dance. With awesome features like Just Sweat,  new playlist section,  and of course classic mode, duet mode, medley, and Simon says.  So go grab Just Dance 3, your friends, your controller, and some water, and let’s dance.


After reviewing Just Dance 2, Ubisoft made some awesome changes. One downfall that I mentioned about Just Dance 2, was that there was no unlockable rewards. That has now changed. There are now mojo points. I just love the word “Mojo.” It’s a fun word. While playing Just dance, I think I unlocked two new songs. You have to work hard to earn your mojo stars, but it is worth it. When you break 10,000 points on a dance, you can receive 5 stars.  These stars go toward your Mojo unlockable rewards. This improvement makes you want to dance harder, and longer, in order to see what else you can unlock.

I also mentioned the lag time with Just Dance 2. This is improved greatly. I used the lag time in Just Dance 2 to take a water break, but now you can take a break while the game is adding up your mojo points.  I tend to play Just Dance with a group of people, so it helps us want to play longer when there is no lag.

Just Sweat was a new addition to Just Dance 2, and it has only gotten better since the last game. There are workout plans and playlist. While playing Just Dance, Zumba came to mind. The dancing, the moves, and the workout that you get with both are amazing.

Another new feature that I learned about while playing was the four part choreographies. This was hilarious to me, because with the Just Dance 2, there was the introduction of the duets. Well this time, everyone can do something different. We were dancing to Beautiful Lair, and I was trying to do my friends part. I had to stop and start over. It was a wonderful addition.

There is also a new feature that rates players on a different criteria. I was always energetic while my friend was wild. She got upset because she didn’t feel like she was wild. Energetic and wild are the only two that we saw while playing, but I wonder if there are more rates.

There was a time with Just Dance 2, where I felt like they didn’t give a very detailed description of what the next move was. This has changed exceptionally on Just Dance 3.  I would also say the moves are a

little harder and a little more involved, but Hey! who wouldn’t want that. Well, maybe someone who had a hard time making perfects on Just Dance 2. We all need a little change. There are a lot more turns in Just Dance 3 than I have seen in any of them.

The graphic and song selection was wonderful. Just Dance always does a wonderful job of mixing music to get everyone’s attention. One thing that caught my attention about Just Dance is that you can keep playing this game over and over again. Try the songs that you may not listen to on a daily basis. Or you can try to be your high score. You could also just workout and trying to sweat more than you did last time. There are so many different features of game that makes it a must have. Dancing with someone else makes it better, and with a whole group makes it awesome.  I think my friend and I played Just Dance 3 for about two and a half hours. We were tired! We took water breaks between songs, and had a little chitchat about the changes. After playing Just Dance, we decided to skip Zumba for the night, because the workout was equal.

Final Thoughts:

If you are down for a good time, a fun work, and a few good laughs, check out Just Dance 3.  The improvements have made me very happy. I can’t wait to have a Just Dance Party and record my friends dancing around the house like they have lost their minds. This is game is for children and adults. You may not be able to hit all of the moves, but trying will be fun..


I rate Just Dance 3 10 out of 10.

Our horrible yet fun, dance mix.

I made here do this last song, and we were tired but I think about Fresh Prince every time i hear this song.

      I do know that off the top of my head, but when I get back home next week, I will let you know. I do know that they were different points for different songs. I think the song we unlocked with our mojo star was maybe 35 stars
