Critic Reviews for Just Dance 2017

Just Dance 2017 is a very predictable update to a long-running series of dancing games that shines in visual design and unique choreography but is very loose with its tracking of your body movements. It’s not going to teach you to be a professional dancer, and it honestly doesn’t really teach you how to be good at Just Dance itself. That said, it’s still a whole lot of fun to play, and the songs that aren’t locked behind a paywall are varied and, largely, recognisable

Just Dance 2017 isn't a bad port on the Switch by any means. If you have a family that doesn't mind looking stupid in front of the TV together, it's easy enough to scrape together a collective of Joy-Con and mobile controllers to have a party (easier than it is for say, Bomberman R or Fast RMX, for instance). Plus, the three months of Unlimited will last you long enough to likely get your money's worth.

A new installment of an endless franchise. A funny game when played with other people, but the Unlimited does not have its full potential and there are some issues with the movement tracking.

For one of the earliest Nintendo Switch experiences I’ve had with the console, Just Dance 2017 was a disappointing departure. Though its slick and easy to use interface combined with the Switch-centric Tabletop Mode are boons for those looking to dance, there’s little substance here, certainly not enough to recommend shelling out cash for Just Dance Unlimited or even playing this game instead of just turning on the radio and dancing to your own routines. It will likely please casual fans who don’t know any better, but if you really want to learn how to dance wait for the inevitable full-body VR trainer or just roll it on back to Dance Central, the undisputed dance trainer of the last decade. You’ll surely learn a lot more, and it’s still great at parties.

As fun as only Just Dance can be, this game is a great example of what this series make well... But doesn't includes any real changes or new features.

The usual funny, colorful and loud Just Dance, with a way more improved playlist and a new mode. If you like to dance and party, it's the right choice.

Probably the most definitive Just Dance game yet, but maybe it should be the last?

While a step up from last year in terms of included tracks, Just Dance 2017 doesn’t bring a lot new to the table — the meat and potatoes lies in Just Dance Unlimited. The Switch version specifically functions as well as you might expect, offering up an easy second player controller courtesy of readily-available Joy-Cons, though the experience becomes difficult visually once undocked. At this point, it’s what you’d expect from Just Dance, but on a new platform. Consider this tiny cartridge your portal into Just Dance Unlimited as I imagine 2017 might be where physical entries to the series end.
