You know what it’s like with danc­ing games. No one wants to be the first to demon­strate their un­co­or­di­nated flail­ing moves first. Just Dance 4 has been avail­able on the ri­val con­soles for sev­eral weeks, but Ubisoft has saved some­thing spe­cial for the Wii U ver­sion. In mul­ti­player, you can add a fifth player in to be the pup­pet master. Use the Wii U GamePad con­troller to de­cide the chore­og­ra­phy in real time, choos­ing from a menu of dance moves as the whim takes you. Oc­ca­sion­ally, you’ll be asked to strike a par­tic­u­lar pose, which gives the win­ner of that mini chal­lenge ex­tra points – use­ful in a grudge match. There are also some Wii U ex­clu­sive tracks. Aside from that, there’s lit­tle else dif­fer­ent from the reg­u­lar ver­sion. It’s still easy to fool the game into think­ing that you’re nail­ing the moves, when in fact all you’re do­ing is mov­ing one hand. Which doesn’t make this the most dif­fi­cult game in the world.
