Review: Just Dance 2024 Edition explained to parents (Preview)

Just Dance 2024 Featured Ecran Partage

What parents need to know

Just Dance 2024 is part of the Just Dance franchise. The concept of this game, like its predecessors, is that players must dance by imitating as much as possible the characters on the screen. The songs to which players are invited to dance are known and generally popular. However, it is not possible to add custom songs.

To play Just Dance 2024 Edition, equip yourself with a controller (or your phone), play the song you want from the selection of the game, and dance to the rhythm! This game can be played alone or with friends.

As of today (the date this article is published), we know that the 2024 edition of Just Dance will feature the following songs:

  • “How You Like That” by BLACKPINK
  • “Tití Me Preguntó” by Bad Bunny
  • “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” by Whitney Houston
  • “Flowers” by Miley Cyrus
  • “Sail” by AWOLNATION
  • “My Name Is” by D Billions
  • And more, which will be announced later by Ubisoft.

Evaluation

There are no scary scenes or violence in Just Dance 2024.

Some dancers wear leotards, but nothing too shocking.

Since the songs are chosen amongst the known and popular ones, they may contain somewhat inappropriate words and phrases, but nothing particularly vulgar.

Songs can be about alcohol, being sexy, or depression.

The Just Dance+ subscription gives access to playlists made for children, in which no foul words appear.

The principle of the game encourages dancing, moving, and exercising on personalized playlists, but it also encourages a lot to pay the Just Dance + subscription.

It is a game that requires you to move a lot and to do cardio. However, the songs all have their level of difficulty, and it is possible to dance them all with practice.

The Just Dance + subscription gives access to seated dances and to dances with no jumps.

Acheter le jeu une fois donne accès à une quarantaine de chansons. Ensuite, l’abonnement Just Dance + donne accès à du contenu additionnel tel que les meilleures chansons des jeux précédents ainsi que du contenu exclusif pendant 12 mois

Just Dance 2024 has a base cost, but it is possible to purchase the Deluxe Edition and the Ultimate Edition. In addition, the game often suggests to purchase the Just Dance+ subscription, which gives access to the best dances from previous games and to exclusive content for the first 12 months after release.

Be careful to cancel the automatic renewal if you no longer want the subscription!

Finally, playing online multiplayer requires you to pay for the subscription for your console AND the Just Dance + subscription.

Local game modes

Just Dance 2024 is available in digital format (download).

It is possible to find game boxes in stores. However, they do not contain a cartridge or a physical disc, but only a code to enter into the console’s online stores (Playstation Store, Nintendo eShop or Microsoft Store). We recommend buying the game directly on the Internet since it is not necessary to buy an empty box, especially from an ecological point of view.

Online Game Modes

To play online, it is necessary to have the Just Dance + subscription AND a subscription for your console:

An internet connection is required to dance to Just Dance+ songs, to be able to see song previews, and to download them each time.

Our opinion

The concept of Just Dance 2024 is in line with the franchise: dance to well-known songs by imitating the movements of colorful characters. It is a great activity for an evening with friends or family and to motivate yourself to move more.

However, the emphasis new editions of Just Dance put on the Just Dance+ subscription can become frustrating in the long run. It is worth noting that the Just Dance+ subscription doesn’t give access to ALL the dances from previous games, but only to a selection of those that are considered the best ones.

In conclusion, we recommend this edition to older children, to teenagers, and to adults who like rhythm and dance games. It’s a good game to party and to move to music. However, we do not recommend it for epileptics because of the particularly flash special effects nor for very young children because of the themes of some songs.
