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.

If you've played a Just Dance game before, any Just Dance game, you'll know whether or not you like Just Dance 2017. It doesn't add much to the series but is another bombastic, deeply enjoyable game to play as you accidentally break your living room furniture.

Just Dance 2017 may be a good dancing game for anyone who doesn't take themselves too seriously or wants to have a good time with friends, but if you bought 2016, then don't bother. The new Just Dance Machine mode is fun, but it's hard to justify a purchase unless you're a big Just Dance fan.

Just Dance 2017 arrives on the Nintendo Switch and with it, Nintendo's new system gains its first family and friends party game based on dancing. Thanks to its ambitious catalog of songs - of which 40 are included with the game and an additional 200 require a paid annual subscription - Just Dance 2017 on the Switch will be thoroughly enjoyed by enthusiasts both at home and on the go, thanks to portability of Nintendo's console. It may not be the most groundbreaking experience but it's certain to stand out as one of the most socially fun games available on this system.

Just Dance 2017 keeps the tradition of being the best game in the dancing style. Featuring a new musical selection and the same upbeat gameplay as before, Just Dance proves that it deserves the recognition of being the best party game out there. For the next chapter, a renewal featuring brand new gaming modes would be very welcome, as keeping the same formula could start to become repetitive in the long term.

It’s always good to end on a high note, and that’s exactly what Just Dance 2017 will be doing if it ends up being the final physical entry for the franchise.

It feels weird to assign a score to Just Dance 2017 — the game doesn’t stray too far from the path, but it’s never been a series that needs to. The game is all out fun and still a world-class party game, but treads the same ground as any other game in the last couple years. If you need to get the latest injection of pop music or haven’t touched the series in years, this game is an easy recommendation. While it isn’t too different from last year’s version (on the one before it), it is still the best Just Dance 2017.

Even if Just Dance 2017 isn't the greatest game, it's still a whole lot of fun. If you have previous iterations, I'm not sure the new modes or songs are a reason to upgrade, but if you don't have a home dance game, this is well worth picking up for kids or partying adults.

Slapping a score or a definitive verdict on a title like this is a particularly tough challenge. Does the Just Dance series deserve high praise? Yes. This particular entry? Maybe. Is the series innovative? Yes. This entry? Not really…Just Dance is brilliant at what it does – serving as a surprisingly jam-packed offering for solo players as well as being a great addition to parties, sleep-overs and gatherings of friends. Naturally, Just Dance 2017 is perhaps the best of the lot – simply because it offers the most diverse library of songs (when including Just Dance Unlimited) and an almost perfected offering of modes, but doesn't really feel like an essential upgrade if you have an entry from the past couple of years. If you are new to the series or are a diehard fan, willing to splash out for the extra features, then Just Dance 2017 is definitely the way to go. If you're happy with older versions of the game however, there is no need to rush into another purchase just yet.

Parents who complain that children spend too much time playing video games and not getting exercise will regret ever saying that if they purchase this game. You will be most definitely be sweating by the end of it. Just Dance 2016 is fun for the whole family, and I'd highly recommend it.

Just Dance 2017’s pros far outweigh its cons. The controls aren’t the best, as their inaccuracy is present from the moment you start moving, but there is a lot of fun to be had dancing and prancing your way to stardom, especially if you have young kids in the household.

Even with the weakest on-disc tracks to date, Just Dance 2017 is a massive step in the right direction. While last year’s entry was a massive miss, this one’s a definitely buy.

Few additions and a great new tracklist make Just Dance 2017 advisable to purchase for another year. Companion App works very well. Just Dance 2017 brings fun again.
