    Fun family/friends game!

    If you ever wanted to learn MJ's moves, this is the game to do it in. I wish there were more songs only because I'm a big MJ fan and have heard most of them that's been circling around, but the selection they have here is great too! Everyone can get moving and sing and dance along too. Working with 1P play right now, will upgrade to 2P when I clear out some more stuff in my living room. Kind of hard to dance on the carpeted floor for some of the moves, but if you have a hardwood or tiled floor it works REALLY well on some of the moves that you want to earn points for. Doesn't work well with a small space, make sure you have space in your play area! This is 49.99 at the store and online, but if you have a game stop near by, they have this game for 39.99. I made sure I told BB so they could price match it and I'd get the discount. I love buying my electronic and gaming products from BB only not only because of the rewards program they have, but for their quality of hardware products. I'm glad they have the price matching because I honestly go strictly to BB for these types of products. Definitely great for all ages. For this one, I had to set the sensor on top of my TV in order for it to pick up all of my moves. Our TV is set on a temporary TV stand and it's basically at our heights 5'3-5'5.

    Santa brought this game for my 3 year old who LOVES Michael Jackson and his moves. It provides fun bonding time for both of us and gets us active. (Even my 19 month old dances). After about 3 songs, I have worked up a good sweat and still want more. My sons attention span isnt as long and will usually end up dancing and then watching the "video" while I dance. I also love that you can unlock instructional videos the more you play. It is a great way to learn the actual moves and they break it down for you. In researching this prior to its release, I thought that Thriller wasnt on it, but was so happy that it was- it is our favorite song and provides about 8 minutes of action. Most of the songs on it are his big hits however there are a couple songs on there that are slower or arent as well known that dont really interest my son or I. I would have preferred to see "rock my world" or "Dangerous" instead of "Earth Song" or "Money". I also love how they are pretty much mini versions of his videos as far as the graphics go. It really gets you in the mood to dance. I will definitely keep dancing and much prefer this over Just Dance however it could be because I am a Michael Jackson fan and know all of the songs on the game. It is a great way to make exercising fun and interesting!

    I played Just Dance 2 at my niece's house recently and although I'm not a great dancer it was alot fun and a lot more of a workout than I thought it would be. I'm pretty lazy about doing exercise but it seemed fun so I thought I would buy one for myself. Didn't know alot of songs on the Just Dance videos so when I saw Michael Jackson, I just had to have it being an 80's fan. It is so much fun you don't even realize you're getting a workout until after a couple of fast paced songs. On many songs, you can either play as Michael Jackson or as a backup dancer which their moves are suppose to be harder. And the graphics are really cool. Each song starts out as the actual video which is very reminiscing for me. Paid $40.00 for mine which came with the glove. Well worth the money to me! The only thing I wish it did was keep track of calories you are burning as you are doing it which I believe the Just Dance vides do, but otherwise great game!

    If you're a fan of Michael Jackson, you're going to love this game. The songs are arranged kind of like an iTunes library, where you can see title of the song and album cover. Gameplay is challenging, as it should be. You can't just expect to know how to move like Michael, especially playing for the first time. Definitely a great workout game, although it doesn't feel like work. You'll either feel like a pro mastering the moves, or you'll be laughing as you try to keep up. There are a few things about the game I'd tweak (such as being able to unlock dance lessons before actually having to try the dance) but all in all it's GREAT fun! I wouldn't say that the motion sensor is spot on with what you're actually doing, although I do feel it scores accurately most of the time. You definitely can't complete the game with one sitting. It's one you can come back to time after time. Very extensive collection of songs, and not just the all-time greats like you'd expect.

    I am undoubtably the worst dancer in the world. I have absolutely no skills whatsoever, however, I am a huge MIchael Jackson fan so I thought I would give the game a try. I am glad I did! While even the "easy" songs are hard for me, I am having fun with the game and most importantly, I am moving and sweating! I have gained a crazy amount of weight since I started driving a cab a few years ago and with my 45th birthday rapidly approaching, I knew I needed to get off of my rather large butt and do something! Since I hate everything there is about exercise I needed to find something I would do on a regular basis that I would enjoy and wouldn't be too difficult. Well, I have definitely found it! I am glad I bought this game and I know doing it at least 4 to 5 days a week with working on my diet, I should definitely lose weight!

    I bought this game as a birthday president for my daughter. I was reluctant at first because of the price. I am not a game person but have played this game every weekend for a month with my daughter and her friends. The music is straight from the cd's. The movements represent the Michael Jackson videos perfectly. The graphics are nice and as you play the game you unlock dance move tutorials. Some dances can be easy and other's hard. You can be a backup dancer or Michael on certain songs. Michael wears the same clothes in each song as he did in that video. Very well done!!! I feel like I am at a concert. Hard to break yourself away from playing it is so fun. It is even funnier to let someone play who has no rhythm. This was a great investment, Michael would be so proud.

    I played Just Dannce 2 at a friends house on New Years Eve and had a blast and he told me the MJ the Experience is way better. So the wife and I and our 8 year old daughter a huge MJ fans so we purchased MJ the experience and have not been disappointed. It has all of his huge hits and yes there are some slower not so well known songs but it does not take away from the fun, entertainment, and workout you will get from this game. It is great for an adult party or to play with your family. It is great for all ages even if you can't dance worth a lick like me :). We love playing with our friends and family to see who will have the highest score at the end of the song.. You can unlock secret training videos if you do really well. Buy your copy today it is well worth the purchase whether you are a MJ fan or not.

    I bought this last night and it is SO MUCH FUN!! I was 10 when Thriller came out and I've always tried to copy his dance moves on Thriller and Beat It, without much luck. With this game, I get to learn all of those steps and listen to great music! You don't need a lot of space and I totally worked up a sweat after the first few songs. I have a treadmill that is gathering dust in a cold basement but this got me up at 6am this morning to get in a few songs before work! It would be fun even if you weren't actually holding a controller and playing the game but just dancing along. Great variety of songs, easy, medium and hard levels and you can choose to be Michael or a back up dancer. I'm thinking a Wii dance party is in order! GO BUY IT!

    Loved dancing as a teenager. Love this now. Great exercise and entertainment. No expertise required. Was surprised and pleased to see little icons as the wii remote tracks your arm movements. does not track footwork nor grade you on that. As you use it more , more points are earned and you see more training videos. Easy to use from the beginning. It's fascinating how you can click on the training parts and learn stuff which looks great and simple now that they've decoded the movements. They show the dance moves slowly so that you can pick them up. I haven't gone through all to to see if they ever show how to moonwalk, but I don't care because THIS IS SO MUCH FUN! Makes you appreciate Michael Jackson as a great choreographer.

    This game rocks!! I love the lifelike images of Michael! He even has a dance school for the rhythm and coordinated impared, lol. I like how he has backup dancers and on some of the tracks you can pick to either be Michael or the backup dancers, but personally I pick MJ because its called the Michael Jackson: The Experience, not "Backup Dancers Experience". On Christmas day, my family and I played for and hour and I have to admit it was a pretty good workout too. Just make sure you have plenty of room to move around, because you are going to be doing a lot of dance moves. It is deserving of 5 stars!!

    First time I played this game at my friend’s party and enjoyed it so much. It’s a competitive game, since you are receiving a score for your moves. I especially liked the feature which provides the feedback while you are dancing (i.e. bad, good and excellent), so you know on the spot how you are doing. This game is a great for both, kids and adults entertainment and working out while having fun. The only thing I would improve about the game is better synchronization of music rhythm, the body motion and the game score. Sometimes, even if you hit the rhythm, the score doesn’t show your moves as “excellent”.

    Great Game for Dancers and Exercise

    I had no intention of buying this game and I figured it would just be like Dance Dance Revolution and I hate following arrows and stuff. This game is nothing like that. You just follow his choreography and you can usually play as MJ or his dancers depending on which difficulty you want. But these are all the classic short films that so many people grew up with and will remind you the time in your life when MJ ruled the world of all music. This is definitely a MUST BUY GAME for everyone whether you are a big MJ fan or casual fan.

    Awesome dance game for wii

    I got this game for Christmas. I told my husband this is what I wanted and he looked at me puzzled. I've never been much of a dancer but I have always admired Michael's dance moves. I've looked at video's online of his dance moves, but it was still hard to achieve. This game is great! You get to learn his dance moves, and if your not so great at them, they have tutorials on how to do the dance moves. The game is basic, 26 songs, but when you have a crowd of 4, this game is a blast! Even my husband jumped in on the fun. My 8 year old loves it too.

    This game was so much fun! I love that it has a great mix of old and new songs. It made it fun for all members of the family, brought back memories and I think is a great thing to have in your collection in Michael Jackson's memory. Just another reminder of what a great singer, performer, producer, dancer, etc etc he was. Michael was simply amazing & the level of fun playing this game is a reflection of that. Especially when you try to do the moves you just simply CAN NOT do. Lol. I love it.

    We bought the Just Dance 2 for wii and enjoy it so we decided to try this one as well. It truly exceeded our expectations for a musical game. Not only does it have all the essential Michael J songs, you can unlock part of the musical video and dance instructions. Did I mention you also get a workout while enjoying your favorites? True family fun and great for summer time exercise when it's too hot outside! We bought this on sale ($25) and it is entertainment for the whole family!

    This was a gag gift for Christmas for my boyfriend. I didn't think the game would even be opened. HOWEVER, he and the kids (17 & 12) absolutely LOVE IT. They are having so much fun playing. They play at least 3 nights a week for at least 2 hours. They play so much they already know the routines by heart! It is also a great workout. We think it is so much better than the Just Dance games. The graphics and the songs are awesome. The game ranges from Easy to Hard so there is something for everyone.

    I'm an MJ fan regardless of his indifferences. The man was a Genius at his craft. This is my first dance game, and boy is it a workout! I love all the songs on the playlist and the dances are almost spot on to what is seen in the music videos. This is a great buy.

    This game was so fun! My boys and I played until we were completely wore out. OK, until I was wore out. lol It was a great way to spend time with my kids and let them remember how great of an entertainer Michael really was. Although he was way before their time, they are big MJ fans as well. Definately recommend this to anyone whether you can dance or not!

    A waste of time for me

    I had expected this "game" to teach me some dance moves and allow me to get some good exercise while having some fun. Total bust on all accounts. The "game" is about waving your hand around, not dancing. I can score just as many points sitting on the couch and moving my hand. Not fun at all. No teaching either, at least not in the early stages. A complete disappointment to me. I wish someone had written this review before I bought it.
