MICHAEL JACKSON THE EXPERIENCE HD is a beautiful app just to watch. The developer's ability to animate Jackson's moves and facial expressions and incorporate his music videos as well as bring diversity of songs into this game make it a real treat for MJ enthusiasts. The game, itself, however doesn't soar to quite as high praise as the graphics and music. The rhythm part is intuitive and essentially just follows the songs, but the hand motions and "shape" that players are supposed to mimic with their finger swipes from Jackson's onscreen dance moves can be quite frustrating to master, especially for younger players. Parents may want to explain their policy about in-app purchases to their kids before they play because there are a lot of them here. Overall, a visually and musically impressive app.
