A nice 2022 iteration with few new features and a very good selection of songs.

There's no doubt that Just Dance 2022 has fallen into some of the traps of other annual games by not making it feel like a total makeover, but once you feel the quality of the choreography and see the improved visuals, you can't deny that Ubisoft is still trying to deliver an exceptional product where it counts: the dancing and song selection. Even as one who is slightly out of touch with current hits, most of them successfully motivate me to get off my butt and start dancing.

It's November and Just Dance is with us again! And it's great news, because it's as much fun as usual. Just don't expect any innovations.

The whole business model leaves a bad taste in my mouth and otherwise tarnishes a near-perfect, joyful experience. It also makes it that much harder to recommend — I’m loving it right this second, but that won’t be the case in a couple months.

Just Dance 2022 may be familiar, and it may bring little that's new to the table, but it's still a hell of a lot of fun.

Just Dance 2022 is a dance without revolution, but what a dance, ladies and gentlemen. Strong of a sensational line-up that ranges from the old glories of the past to the new stars of the present (even virtual), the last chapter of the series focuses entirely on the quality of the selected pieces and on choreographies of indisputable specific weight.

Just Dance 2022 is once again the best way to stay in shape. As every year, its arrival at home is a family activity that we enjoy very much.

Just Dance 2022 is okay. It's more of the same with some cool new tracks, a slick and smooth experience overall that plays it safe and works just fine as a result. However, it also constantly pushes its subscription service and ends up feeling a little convoluted and tacky as it spends more time flogging tracks you don't own over letting you enjoy the ones included with the base game. Fans of the series - or anyone who's just danced to even a single track from the series - will know exactly what they're getting here, but newcomers should be aware that they'll need to fork out more cash after buying the game in order to enjoy the full experience.

Just Dance 2022 brings great evolutions in the music backgrounds and has one of the best tracklists in the franchise, being a perfect indication for those who want their first title in the series. Even with these good points, not having anything new still gives the impression that the game is just a overpriced DLC and not being able to use other motion controls on the PlayStation 5 is a disheartening point for old PS4 players that only played using the PS Move or the PS Camera.

Just Dance 2022 is the latest entry in the long-running series from Ubisoft. Boasting a selection of tracks that will cater to a wide variety of musical preferences, there’s much to love about the game despite the lack of innovation from year to year.

‎Although there are few novelties of its last delivery to this, Just Dance 2022 celebrates another year when it comes to making us have a good time alone or in company. The themes vary a lot and some genres have been added that had not been seen almost in the game, to that, added to its different difficulties, we have a perfect title for any party or celebration.‎

Make no mistake. Just Dance 2022 is Just Dance 2021 (and 2020, and 2019) all over again. Also, make no mistake, this remains tons of fun. Sure, nothing has really changed, but if it ain't broke, why fix it. Sadly, while there has been a pretty strong improvement on the visual front, with the people behind this experimenting way more with the videos and the choreography, the soundtrack is one of the least impressive in the franchise.

Just Dance 2022 is the most interesting Just Dance in years. The next edition takes a few bolder steps than its predecessors, so it's worth giving it a chance. Be sure to go with Just Dance Unlimited!

Just Dance 2022 does not manage to eradicate the criticisms of its last predecessors either. The all-round package is simply not valued enough for that. Nevertheless, the current offshoot manages to convince on many points. The choreographies are excellently worked out, well thought out and extremely sweaty. Fans can access it without hesitation, but this time also newcomers.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, and Just Dance 2022 maintains the formula for both good and bad.

The modern dance visuals and the addition of popular songs in Just Dance 2022 will likely appeal to longtime fans of the game; however, those who are new to the series may want to opt for a version a few years older, and purchase the Just Dance Unlimited subscription instead, to save money and learn gameplay with songs that have easier dance moves. While unlikely at this time, the option to permanently purchase past songs as DLC would be a big benefit for Just Dance 2022, allowing players to pay a one-time fee for their favorite songs, rather than a monthly steep monthly cost for songs that may not get played.

With the unlimited subscription model, the playlist expands endlessly just as much as the enjoyment from the dances that come with it. Looks like there needs to be some work to be done on the experimental elements using the smartphone but it will still provide a decent amount of family fun and exercise.

Without reinventing the wheel, Just Dance 2022 delivers what it promises to do every year: offering the current hits to provide a big party on Switch. Though it doesn't have any significant changes to the series and has a few inconveniences because of the subscription service, the new release hits the mark in its music list, choreographies, visuals and gameplay criteria, making it one of the best editions in the popular dance series to date.

While the Just Dance series reek of a yearly subscription based model, it still is a lot of fun, especially with the bops released in the year to date. Can't beat dancing to your hearts content with your friends and family in this wholesome and colorful game.
