One day during the week my wife came up to me and said that she would like a new game for the Wii (the device that she never uses), Michael Jackson: The Experience. I tried to persuade her that this was a bad idea for two reasons; she never plays the games she has, and the fact that the game in question is poor.
I have not played the game for myself, but after reading a recent post of ours, its seems that this game might just be for MJ fans. Alan Ng reported that IGN only gave it 3.5/10 — now that’s shocking. We thought we would have a look at a few more reviews just to see if this was the consensus.
PC World has been more forgiving with the game, giving it four out of five stars. They loved the Michael Jackson choreography, and the fact that it was Ubisoft’s best dance game yet. However, what seems to let the game down is only having 26 tracks. Read the full review here.
Destructoid on the other hand seems to agree with IGN, having given the game just 5 out of 10. They seem to think that the game could have been so much more, saying that the Beatles: Rock Band, went out of their way to offer great content. Get the complete review here.
Eurogamer has also been generous with their review of Michael Jackson: The Experience, giving the game a 7 out of 10. They believe that Ubisoft could have given us more content, but at least it is still fun. Visit Eurogamer for the full review.
As you can see reviews are mixed, which side of the fence are you on?
