Be prepared to shell out for the subscription service – while there’s a decent library included, you won’t get the “good stuff” without subscribing, though there is a decent free trial.
**Also note that you cannot log into multiple devices or profiles (!!!) with the same subscription account.**
That means that if Amy and Suzie are using the same switch but Suzie doesn’t want Amy playing the game with her Switch profile, mom and dad are buying two subscriptions just to get the same content for each profile.
While “they can share” is generally a valid answer, it’s really not great subscription management. It also doesn’t work if two people in the same family are geographically separated and want to play together. Does not make sense for a family game.
The subscription also brings in a ton of familiar songs – but wait! Does that mean I’m paying AGAIN for songs that were in previous versions, that were already created and sold to me? YES! You might think that the $60 price tag would pay for those, but I guess not. DON’T FORGET that you’re paying for the subscription service to keep accessing those (previously created and paid for songs).
So why is this game $60?
I don’t know.

As the title says, there are ads in this game. When playing this game we had to sit through an unskippable video advertisement for their monthly subscription service. They also fill the song selection screen with songs you can only play with their subscription service. Which by the way, is $25/year — The same price as a Nintendo Switch Online Membership. Effectively doubling the price.
They try really hard to show you all the songs you CAN’T play. Constantly shoving the subscription service in your face. It’s gross. The whole experience is tarnished by the constant ads. Please don’t reward this nasty marketing behaviour by giving Ubisoft more money.

Way too expensive for the fact there are Not that many free songs. The good songs you need to buy/ upgrade with a subscription that you pay monthly. If I knew this I would not have paid this much for this game. Very dissapointed

I have all the Just Dance games–and granted, I’m going a bit nutty with all this staying at home during the pandemic, but this game may be my favorite. The songs are a great mix of genres, and the choreography has enough familiar moves to make the game comfortable to jump into, but it also has some new moves that I don’t think I’ve seen in the other Just Dance games. And the backgrounds–wow–they are amazing. It’s crazy to think how far the game has come over the years. Five stars for sure!

El juego en si es bueno, pero me parece que trae muy pocas canciones libres y hay que pagar por las demás una membresía, honestamente sale más práctico descargar la app gratuita y compartir en tu pantalla desde tu cel, pagas la misma membresía y te sale mejor que pagar por un video juego que para mi resulta que solo es la misma app que puedes descargar gratis pero muy cara,

Heads up to those who want a nice packaged game case to hold the game inside. It’s completely busted and looks like my dog chewed it but If you don’t plan on keeping the boxes like I do then it’s not a problem. The price was amazing and the only thing I care for is their game working. Which it does so I’m rating this 4/5. It only seems fair to deduct one because of packaging.

I have kept up with the Just Dance series from the beginning and own almost all of them to date – Parts 1, 2, 3, 4, Summer Party, Greatest Hits, ABBA, Michael Jackson, JD2014, JD2015, JD2016, JD2017, JD2018, JD2019, JD2020– and now JD2021. Not only are they incredibly fun, but they also serve as my primary workout regime. In 2012 I had cancer surgery which kept me off my feet for some time, and Just Dance really helped me bounce back and lose upwards of 60 pounds that first year with very little modification to my diet. I continued to dance literally every single day for about three years, resulting in not only a slimmer, more toned body, but I also FELT better than ever. Unfortunately, after my cancer resurfaced in 2016, the ensuing surgeries and permanent nerve damage have prevented me from exercising on the level I used to, but I do still like to pop these games in a few times a week and was happy to pick up the latest. But enough of my sob story. I only wanted to mention these things now so any criticisms I might make come off as more credible and not just the rantings of a casual player who simply can’t keep up with the steps or hold the controller properly. Trust me, I know these games inside out by now, lol.
I will try to avoid writing my usual thesis – but no promises, lol – and just say that, in short, JD2021 is a decent-to-good installment of the series. In terms of interface and gameplay it’s about the same as the last few entries, which I think is a good thing because it finally found a format that works. I used to dread popping in a new game each year and re-learning how to navigate the damn thing, lol, but if you have played any Just Dance game in the last five years or so this will look familiar to you. The motion tracking on the Switch joy-con is fair, though some simple and straightforward moves such as pointing your hand to the sky or turning around in a circle still fail to register on occasion, and the graphics are colorful and fluid and you get to play as a variety of whimsical characters. There are also a ton of new player icons, titles, and artwork to unlock if you’re so inclined. The Just Sweat and World Dance Floor modes return, as well as a small selection of songs geared toward small children specifically. (And I’m sorry, I may be 38, but that Alphabet Song remix is dope.) My only sorta-gripe is with the choreography itself, which this time around seems to rely more on bizarre hand posing rather than actual footwork and movement. As a single player just looking to stay fit I don’t necessarily feel like I’m benefitting from much of a workout as I do with previous titles, though it might still be fun for small groups and gatherings.
As with every new Just Dance game in recent years, you also get a free 30-day trial of Just Dance Unlimited, which is basically an online database of over 500 tracks from games past, though a Ubisoft Club account is mandatory to access it. Regarding Unlimited, I strongly advise disregarding any 1-star review which tries to tell you this is an “incomplete” game. You get 40-ish songs on the cartridge, which is more or less the standard and quite reasonable for the retail price point. What you’re paying extra money to access, and is completely optional, is access to almost every song from previous Just Dance games. It’s an entirely different service unto itself and absolutely nothing in this game is locked behind a paywall. Please, please educate yourself before making (or buying into) such claims. I do happen to subscribe to Unlimited on top of continuing to purchase the new physical game releases every year, and find it completely worth it. Like I said, I try to dance several times a week, if my body is up for it.
The tracklist itself will be hit or miss depending who you ask. Each year it gets a little less mainstream with heavy emphasis on world music and underground techno beats, which is not necessarily a complaint for me but I can see why others may be disappointed. That said, there is still a pretty good selection here of popular radio tracks from the likes of Harry Styles, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, and even Eminem. (Personally I would have liked more 80s and 90s music.) All in all I think JD 2021 is a solid entry in the series, embodying the fun and whimsy of the earlier games but with a modern polish that doesn’t compromise the gameplay itself. (For a few games there is was SO stylized to the point where you couldn’t even see what your dancer was supposed to be doing.) At this point I really just appreciate that they keep making these games at all and continue to appeal to a wide range of demographics. So, whether your goal is to shed a few pounds or just goof around for a few minutes, everyone should find at least one thing here to love.

Video games and dancing are two of my favorite pastimes, and somehow I had never bought Just Dance before! I am a former Zumba and cardio dance instructor and have to admit this can also be a great workout. I already went through 40 songs of Just Dance 2021 this morning (game just arrived yesterday), and it was a blast. There’s a great mix of moves from hip-hop, modern, Zumba, etc. and while I only recognized five or so of the songs, it was still enjoyable. From a workout perspective, it can be a little heavier on the right arm and quad, so I suggest switching up the legs and also using the left arm more instead of just mirroring the game – as long as your right arm is mirroring, you’ll still get the 5 stars. I am pretty certain I’ll be subscribing to the unlimited soon.
