Victorious: Time to Shine maintains the positive vibe of the TV show (you won't find any raunchy lyrics or racy outfits here), so fans of the show should enjoy the familiar songs, setting, and characters. In terms of gameplay, Time to Shine is a middling effort that lacks the depth of titles like Dance Central and The Black Eyed Peas Experience. The biggest thing missing is that players have no way of isolating and slowing down the more complex dance moves to practice them before incorporating them into the routines themselves. This lack of ability to practice could easily prove frustrating to players, despite the game's forgiving nature of mistakes. Time to Shine is a fun game for fans of the show, but it is unlikely to win over players who take their music games a little more seriously.
