Just Dance 2021 contains one of the best tracklists the franchise has ever had and makes meaningful improvements to the World Dance Floor and communicating players' performance to them while they dance. However, some childish maps and poor choreographies bring this tracklist down slightly. The core gameplay here is still good and I hope next year Ubisoft is able to fix some of the key issues this game clearly had being developed under COVID-19 restrictions.

Just Dance 2021 is not a revolution but a confirmation, like every year. But, like every year, he also reiterates that his is a winning formula, which shows no sign of fading.

Just Dance 2021 works fine with solid choreography, but with very few base game changes, Just Dance Unlimited feels like a much better option.

Just Dance 2021 is a solid entry in the franchise, though it might get stale next year if things don't change. However, its improved performance and bombastically entertaining song list will still get you on the dancefloor this time around.

Just Dance 2021 continues the franchise in precisely the way fans expect; beyond the 40 new tracks, this is virtually the exact same game as last year, and that is totally fine. Happy songs, bright colors, and fun animation make for a welcome good time, and the exercise certainly doesn't hurt. If you have never tried Just Dance, take the leap. It's much more fun than you think it is.

Having most of the content locked behind a subscription is a slight killjoy even though prices aren't ridiculous, the constant upsell of the service could also be toned down. But lovers of dancing will feel right at home here as there isn't a better dancing simulator out there and despite a few niggling issues Just Dance 2021 is great fun.

Just Dance 2021 is a continuation proposal that doesn't propose anything very new for this year, however, it doesn't stop being fun and a safe bet.

Just Dance 2021 fails to ever feel like a fully fleshed-out game, especially for the £50 price tag. Although the new tracks and the World Dance Floor mode are fun enough, it's hard to justify spending so much on a game that adds so little, and expects you to purchase more with thinly-veiled in-game advertising and upselling. If you love the series then you'll be investing no matter what we say, but we can't help but feel that Just Dance as a franchise has been resting on its laurels for far too long now.

Refined but not innovated, Just Dance 2021 represents the series in stagnation. It still entertains, but the past few entries have seen little in the way of positive change. A couple of the prior editions on Switch are arguably better.

Just Dance 2021 just keeps doing the good things that the previous titles of the series were doing, without offering many innovations.
