Just Dance 2017 (Wii)
Party 25 October 2016
The next installment in the popular series of dancing games developed by Ubisoft. The series allows the player to feel like the professional pop dancers who accompany the greatest stars on the top scenes of the world. In Just Dance 2017 the basic gameplay mechanics remained unchanged in comparison to the previous entries in the franchise. During the game the player must repeat the movements of the dancers displayed on the screen and the system (which, depending on the gaming platform employs different controls) will grade performance and technique. The game, as usually, is filled with licensed hits of such performers as Queen, Shakira, will.i.am, David Guetta, Sia, Justin Bieber and PSY. It is worth mentioning that Just Dance 2017 is the first installment of the series that was released also on personal computers.
Let's Sing 2017 (Wii)
Party 14 October 2016
A karaoke party game which is another installment in a series developed by Voxler Games. The player's goal is to sing various in-game songs (30 of them in the base version) to the best of their ability. Among the songs included, one will find top radio hits, such as Avicii - Waiting For Love, Jason Derulo - Want To Want Me, Zara Larsson - Lush Life, LMFAO - Sexy And I Know It, Robin Schulz ft. Francesco Yates - Sugar, or Twenty One Pilots - Stressed Out. When singing, the player watches the official clips and lyrics are displayed at the bottom of the screen. Depending on the game mode chosen, the player can put their vocal skills to the test when singing alone, accompanied by another player, or in turns. One is also required to remain calm as either the instrumental or lyrics can disappear at times. Let's Sing 2017 offers simplistic visuals typical for the genre. Interestingly, the player can use their smartphone as an equivalent to a microphone in both the cases of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions.
