Just Dance is a great title that will be very difficult to turn off. When you are decided to play and dance with it, it keeps you entertained until you fall exhausted. It's not just a typical workout. Just Dance continues to impressively add new songs and choreographies. Many of them have great new moves. On the other hand, without Kinect, you will have a really bad experience. And we hope that Ubisoft will do something about controls to keep this series going.

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.

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!

I still think that, with the Unlimited Pass, there is very little reason for you to buy more than one Just Dance every, say, three or four years. If so, I think Just Dance 2022 is the best one so far, and the one you should buy, not only because of its improved choreographies and inclusion of half a dozen songs I love, but because it does feel more visually impressive and polished than any other Just Dance I’ve played.

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.

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.

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 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.

‎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.‎

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.

The title has surprised me brining a good music list with what were the conventional choreographies from past editions, but it lacks something more. The franchise seems to be entering a new stage, exploring choreographies with movement capture, 3D animation and stop-motion. All of those are well done and are likely to return in future games. But, just as I said in the Just Dance 2021 review, having good music and choreographies is not enough to make a good game. The menus and modes are neglected in a worrying way. It was disappointing to see the same menu [from the last edition] and the lack of additions or changes in the modes available.

Just Dance 2022 isn't filled with flashy new mechanics or game-changing improvements. But with a host of catchy new songs, Just Dance 2022 is an exciting continuation of the successful rhythm series.

‎Just Dance and its franchise never fails. There will always be songs that please someone they are with, the number of titles and different styles make it accessible to all types of audiences and the same you can set up in your living room a Disney party for your children with dances of the mythical songs, such as a K-Pop dance competition at the highest level with the original choreography of Korean pop groups.‎

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

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.

Aside from the in-your-face self-promotion, lack of evolution, and sketchy phone control, Just Dance 2022 retains the positive elements that have kept both would-be and accomplished dancers coming back for each new version. The starting setlist is relatively strong, and there are lots of options to craft the experience. How long the good times last probably depends on whether you’re willing to finally cave and buy into the Unlimited option to get your sweaty hands on those 700 other songs. There’s a way in which Just Dance 2022 feels more like a starter pack than a full game, but it’s still a great excuse for us sedentary endomorphs with multiple left feet to move and have fun.

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.

Still good opportunity to move your body with great music. But there are not real new options.

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.
