Musical variety, but questionable controls make a mixed bag.

Get Up and Dance is a fun way to get active with friends. There are a lot of different options for game play, although most of them seem to be very similar. The one exception is the Talent Show mode, which adds an interesting level to the game. The lead/backup dancer option is a good idea in theory, but in practice, it makes the already busy screen confusing. It's far too easy to get distracted and end up following the wrong dancer, especially if you are new to games like these. Also, the scoring in this game feels inaccurate (more so than other games of the genre). The result is that this isn't the strongest option for a group dancing game.

On the other hand, the fitness mode is more robust (although still not phenomenal), so if that's your primary interest, you might want to give it a shot. There are no unlockables or downloadable content, but this comes in at a lower price point than its competition, so that may not matter.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
