Just Dance 2 has been released on Nintendo Wii and been provided for us to preview/review by the publisher.

Believe it or not we are still playing it. Here are some extracts of what we made of it in chronological order:

"Just Dance 2 is full of personality and encourages everyone to get involved and shake their funky thing. A distinctive style and varied track list make this well worth it for anyone who wants to dance..."
- Microcosm Gamer (Wed, 02 Feb 2011)


"Just Dance 2 understands the platform and the audience as it looks to extend the success of the first game. Original interpretations of each song match strong presentation to create a technically compelling game for casual and hardcore gamers alike..."
- Tech Gamer (Tue, 07 Dec 2010)


"Just Dance 2 bucks the trend of childish dance games to offer an original experience with great music. It's fun on your own, and a great laugh to play with your mates..."
- Teen Gamer (Sun, 14 Nov 2010)


"Just Dance 2 Wii makes it look easy. But a dance game this well executed is no fluke - detailed understanding of the audience and perfect technical execution make this a stand out experience on the Nintendo Wii..."

Just Dance 2's impressive song list is joined by some intelligent dance modes to promise a worthy follow up to such a successful first outing.

Just Dance 2 leverages the first game's success with some stand out tracks:

Just Dance 2 also offers new modes. Team mode enables players to create their own dance team and dance-off with up to 8 players. Duet Mode has two players following different choreography mixing dance steps and poses that will respond to the choreography of the other. Finally, the new Just Sweat mode turns the game into a calorie killer.

Just Dance 2 will be released on the Wii on October 14th 2010 in the UK and October 15th 2010 in North America.

Just Dance 2 Wii enhancements look to repeat success of the first living room dancer's favourite.

After the surprise huge success of the First Just Dance game on Wii, Ubisoft are bringing it back for a second instalment. 40 new songs, more movements and 8 person multiplayer teams promise to keep us all dancing around like lunatics in our living rooms.

Building on modes and game play of the original, the focus continues on accessible choreography that starts simply and slowly teaches players complex dance moves. Alongside this a nod to health and fitness games is included with a calorie counter.

Tracks include:
