Just Dance 2024 Edition PS5 Review
Summary: Just Dance 2024 Edition ticks all the right boxes on the PS5 for dancing solo or with others.
Dancing Queens & Kings!
Welcome back to the dance floor with JUST DANCE 2024 EDITION that is available across multiple gaming platforms (including cross play) and thanks to Ubisoft, we had the chance to check it out on the PlayStation 5.
While the game mechanics are similar to last year’s edition in that you use a smartphone as the controller to monitor your dancing. The goal (hopefully) is to match your moves with the on screen dancer and cues and better you dance, the more points you are awarded – additionally you can dance solo or against friends, family and frenemies, both locally (up to 6-players) and online as well. However the new element to 2024 is that you can now join players who own Just Dance 2023 Edition in order to share dance routines from both games which is a clever twist to the franchise as you can share the gaming love.
Apart from dancing solo or with others, there is also a very intensive workout mode that really ramps up your heartrate and provides an excellent fitness routine for those looking at something a little different. Further, there is a new challenge mode that allows you to battle players from around the world asynchronously as you are awarded points in order to climb the leader boards.
New owners of this game also receive a free one-month trial that really expands the track listing thanks to its comprehensive library and lots of Disney songs for younger gamers. So yes it is a subscription service but well worth it for players who love to dance. And what about the controls? In order to play the game, you simply download the Just Dance app for your Android or iOS device and then link it to your PS5. Presto! You’re ready to dance, however you still need your DualSense controller to navigate the main game.
The link between the smartphone and PS5 is quite responsive and the overall gameplay really hasn’t changed since last year as it’s all about being physical, dancing and more importantly having fun. If you haven’t played a Just Dance game for a while, this is probably the perfect time to jump back into the franchise if you love dancing. It’s also a great party game with friends and family. In terms of different platforms, I imagine the gameplay would be very similar across all platforms and for PlayStation 5 owners, it’s a flawless experience.
Graphics / Audio
Graphically, Just Dance 2024 Edition on the PS5 is quite a colourful game with stylised graphics that again are reminiscent to previous editions. Apart from the almost psychedelic colours, there are some great special effects to help make the gameplay more immersive and in order to maximise the experience, playing it on the big screen is a must.
However the highlight of the game is the awesome track listing that boasts 40 new songs to the franchise which is a mixture of different genres (Swan Lake by The Just Dance Orchestra), classics (I Wanna Dance With Somebody) and new songs (How You Like That). This is a great collection of songs and with the one month trial to the subscription service, there is plenty to choose from to give you some fantastic tracks to dance with.
