A solid effort with a lot of style, weighed down by a repetitive(if occasionally engrossing) story mode and an ill-suited but flavorful OST that can wear out its welcome way too fast. Very enjoyable while it lasts, but lacks lasting appeal.
A massive improvement over the previous entry, a songlist spanning the entire series which has something for everyone. Great visuals and welcome updates to the classic gameplay offers considerable replay value, but doesn't shine enough to be the definitive game in the series.
Invector tries to copy the best, and only manages to be a pale imitator. The only real highlight is the Avicii soundtrack, and even that gets old very, very fast. The end result is more confusing than fun, and neither the gameplay nor the music are strong enough to make it worth enduring at length.
DJ MAX Respect is nothing short of bliss for series fans old and new. A gorgeous interface, a massive selection of classic tracks with inspired new music, and enough content to keep players busy for untold hours. Apart from minor graphical nitpicks, DJ MAX's Respect biggest flaw is that it could make the PSP versions feel obsolete by comparison.
Groove Coaster is a lot of fun, but the Steam version's song list lacks the massive variety and replay value seen in the arcade or even the mobile versions. The core game is still an enjoyable experience, but until all the DLC is out, enjoying Groove Coaster to the fullest could be a very costly endeavor.
Just Dance is a very creative game, and a lot of fun, but to get the most out of it, you'll need to open your wallet for the Unlimited Experience, and put in a lot of practice. If you can put in the patience and the money, Just Dance has the style to make it worth your while.
Musynx shamelessly copies the formula of hitting falling notes to create a song as you go, but that's hardly a bad thing, even if it lacks innovation and the style of its predecessors. What it lacks in creativity, it makes up for with the breadth and depth of a massive, unprecedentedly varied soundtrack.
