Just like every other Just dance I guess

While its focus is on Disney songs and characters, Just Dance: Disney Party is very similar to previous Just Dance games. Players dance in front of the television, mimicking the moves of characters onscreen (typically kids or young adults dressed up as the characters from the film or show providing the music). The movements of Xbox 360 users are picked up by the Kinect sensor, while Wii players use the Wii remote to let the game track their movements. Kids can play songs in a non-stop shuffle or make their own playlists. Wii users have an added game mode, letting them pop onscreen balloons to earn more points. Minor Language - word hell in one of the songs Retails for $24.99

Just Dance Summer Party can leave the uninitiated huffy, puffy and feeling like their arms and legs have Jell-O in them. Of course, players can take the easy approach and just waggle an arm holding the Wii remote. The game also features some nice stretching techniques preceding a few of the dances that work rather well.

The music is a bit hit and miss at times, and the game certainly won't wow visually, though the dancing silhouettes look fine. Still, this is a decent dance title.
