Dance Game improves

Still a remote control game, and some curse words.

Just Dance 2

Ubisoft's surprise hit game from '09 -- which went on to sell more than four million copies -- is back on the Nintendo Wii with JUST DANCE 2, a sequel that adds even more fun. As with last year's version, you hold the Wii Remote and dance away to 40+ dance hits from yesterday and today -- ranging from the Jackson 5, James Brown and Blondie to Rihanna, Katy Perry and Kesha. Choreographed by real experts, the onscreen silhouettes dance to each track and you must try to mirror their movements. You're then graded on your performance. Along with all-new songs, this year's game adds new twists including a 4-person dance-off contest (for up to 8 players), dance duets (stand side-by-side in front of the television and play cooperatively or competitively) and other modes. — What’s in the game? Minor Language - The words "hell" and "damn" can be heard in a number of songs, but harsher swear words are bleeped out -- even if it's still basically clear what the intended word was. One example: Avril Lavigne's "Girlfriend," which features the lyric, "Hell yeah, I'm the motherf--king princess." Minor Drinking - Many of the songs make references to alcoholic beverages (beer, Jack Daniels, etc.) and drinking alcohol, such as in the line, "trying to get a bit tipsy" from Kesha's "Tik Tok." Retails for $39.99
