Critical Reception

The reception for Just Dance has been fairly negative with some reviewers stating that the cover tracks in the game are mediocre and the presentation of the game being "simple, plain & uninspiring". The setlist has also been subject to criticism, with most of the songs not even fitting the party dancing feeling the game attempts to create, with song such as "Dare", "Who Let The Dogs Out?" & "Eye Of The Tiger" not really songs one would dance to. The game has been put under the microscope by dancers and choreographers and they found the dances to be simple but not always fitting to the songs.
