Template:Infobox videogame Just Dance 2015 is a game in the Just Dance series and is the sixth installment in the series. The game returns to the Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. It was released on October 21, 2014 in the NTSC region and on October 23, 2014 in the PAL region.

This is the second game in which a year instead of the game's installment number was used in the game's name; the first was its predecessor, Just Dance 2014.

GameplayEdit

As with the previous games, the aim of the game is to follow the on-screen dancer's moves, either with the use of a handheld remote (Wii, Wii U, PS3, and PS4) or a camera (Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PS4). There is a smart phone app called Just Dance Now, that tracks player moves by the phone as shown in E3 Ubisoft Conference Demo, and was released on 25 September 2014.

Sweat Routines, Mashups, Non-Stop Shuffle (after it's absence in Just Dance 2014), and Extreme Versions, Alternate Routines and Sweat Mashups also returned.

With the new Community Remix feature, you can be the coach in Just Dance! Record yourself dancing to one of tracks with your console camera and share it in-game for other members of the community to vote on. The Just Dance development team will then create a playable remixed gameplay that other players can dance along to!

Challenge people around the world using the Challenge Mode feature. The great thing about this is players don't have to be online at the same time to challenge each other.

Even when not playing at the same time, with the new Challenger Mode feature you can dance and score against previous performances of other players — from friends and family to top ranked Just Dancers.

Just Dance Wall also enables you to share your stats and wildest dance performances, vote on other fans videos, make friends, collaborate, and more!

World Dance Floor online multiplayer mode, dance with anyone anywhere in the world, join a virtual dance crew, compete on different themes and check fun stats and rankings!

With the Karaoke mode, you can sing along to the song by following lyrics displayed on screen. You can take it seriously and show off how talented you are, or just goof off with friends.

The upgraded Autodance™ feature records players while they’re dancing to create short, funny and shareable videos. Autodance videos are now automatically generated while you’re dancing, so you can instantly share it once the song is finished! For the Xbox you will need a hard drive to have this feature.

CoversEdit

Menu and DesignEdit

Similar to Just Dance 2014, Just Dance 2015 has remade the menu to be modern and simple but unique for the players to scroll through. By selecting a song you can play Party Master Mode for it (Wii U only) and a new playlist option to create a playlist for the player to play without losing it. The World Dance Floor is now present at the bottom of the screen, and the news material is present at the top. Difficulties have been removed from the game. At the start screen, you can now be able to access Uplay by pressing a button on your controller ("+" button for Wii U, "X" button on Xbox 360/Xbox One, and the square button on PS3/PS4).

Behind the Scenes Edit


ReceptionEdit

Critical ReceptionEdit

Just Dance 2015 received mixed-to-positive reviews by critics; Metacritic lists the Xbox One version of the game with an aggregate score of 70 out of 100 based on 17 critic reviews.[1]

Zack Stein of IGN gave the Xbox One version of Just Dance 2015 an 8.0 out of 10; describing the game as "a welcome, surprising reinvigoration of the series", Stein praised the game for continuing to provide an overall experience catered to a casual audience, jump-in multiplayer, along with improved Kinect motion tracking in-game, and the higher-quality production of the per-song background videos, but criticized the user interface for being "as confusing and frustrating as ever" due to irregular design choices and behaviors. In conclusion, Stein felt that "It would be easy to dismiss Just Dance 2015 as the 'same-old-same-old,' but that would overlook this finely tuned party game’s special-effects-laden dance numbers, complete with chorus lines and elaborate sets and costumes, and the social integration that holds the world-wide Just Dance community together."[2]

Game Revolution, giving the game a 3 out of 5, felt that the game's soundtrack was "high-energy" albeit catered to a casual audience, noting that "singles like Pharrell's Happy' provide a strong pop basis while oddballs like a Tetris track or an unfortunately obnoxious song about a fox explore the far reaches of danceable contemporary music." Still, Just Dance 2015 was praised for its forgiving motion detection and multiplayer experience, concluding that "of my own preferences regarding the music genre, dancing remains somewhere out of the lead when it comes to interacting with sound and visuals, though Just Dance 2015 hits on every requirement I have from anything asking me to move my feet without a pad to stomp on."[3]

Steve Hannley of Hardcore Gamer was more critical of Just Dance 2015, arguing that it did not provide enough differentiation over Just Dance 2014 to be described as anything more than a "track pack". Hannley felt that the game's social features, although well-designed, would not appeal to what he believed was the game's target audience (those playing the game for exercise, not wanting to dance in public, or are "underage"). The game's soundtrack was also criticized for being the worst in series history for "clearly catering to teeny boppers and in doing so [leaving] out practically anybody older than 21 with decent taste in music", and containing fewer "good" songs than 2014. In conclusion, giving the game a 3 out of 5, Hannley argued that "Just Dance is a series that's hard to hate as it genuinely wants players to have a good time, but 2015 is a misstep. Hardly anything has changed and practically nothing has for those who don’t partake in the online functionality".[4]

As of December 31, 2014 Just Dance 2015 has shipped 5 million copies.[5]

Players score points by accurately moving their bodies in time to the music and scrolling indicators. Some songs reference alcohol: "La cerveza y el tequila (the beer and the tequila)"; "It's mix Moscato,"; "Pop your Pérignon." A handful of songs contain suggestive material: "So let me get you/In your birthday suit"; "Now there's a backseat lover/That's always under cover"; "School girl sleazy/...Little skirt hangin'/Way up her knee"; "Boy when you're with me I'll give you a taste."[6]

Trivia Edit

  • This is the first Just Dance game since Just Dance 3 to be released in the United States and Canada/NTSC region before Europe and Australia/PAL region.
  • This is also the first game since Just Dance 4 to have more than one all-female dance crew.
  • This is the first game in the main series where trios appear as Classic routines.
  • This is the game with the Third fewest number of songs in the main track list in the main series, after Just Dance and the second being Just Dance 2017. Just Dance had thirty-two songs, Just Dance 2 had forty-seven, Just Dance 3 had forty-nine, Just Dance 4 had forty-three, Just Dance 2014 had forty-seven, and this game has forty-two.
  • Since its absence in Just Dance 4 and Just Dance 2014, the duet Mashup returns in this installment. Dance Crew Mashups are also introduced in this very game.
  • This is the second time in a Classic routine of a song that the lyrics are on the middle of the screen, rather than having it on the bottom left side of the screen. This was first used in the duets of Just Dance 2.
  • The Mashup background has returned to the kaleidoscopic style, similar to the one used in Just Dance 3.
  • This is the first time in which one coach from a non-solo mode was used alone for a Mashup or party master mode.
  • This is the first game in the series to have themed Mashups.
  • The game holds the record for introducing the fewest captions for its own new dancers. This could be attributed to the fact that there are only five Party Master Modes in the game.
  • The game contains many dance crews. The reason for this is that the classic routine of You're On My Mind is a Dance Crew Mashup.
  • The Battle Mode and On-Stage Mode do not return in this game.
  • This game seems to suffer from many bugs. Later copies of the game may not have these bugs.
  • The Party Master mode has gone back to being a Wii U exclusive feature.
  • Rock n Roll, a recycled DLC from Template:G, has the wrong price tag ($2.99 instead of $1.99). This also happened to Gangnam Style in Just Dance 2014.
  • Whenever an alternate routine is unlocked, it will most likely have a message near it. Here are the attributed messages for the alternate modes:
    • The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?): "Feel like sleeping in the tent?"
    • Happy: "Ready to sing like a crooner?"
    • Diamonds: "Find out how you can dance while sitting!"
    • I Love It: "Ready for the changing of the Guards?"
    • Bad Romance: "Are you ready for the hardest Just Dance song ever?"
    • Walk This Way: "Are you old school?"
    • It's My Birthday: "Ready to celebrate your birthday in India?"
    • Papaoutai: "Can you dance African?"
      • Summer and Let It Go are the only exceptions.
  • The cost for DLC alternate routines is $2.99/300 Wii Points in this game, even though in the previous game, such DLCs were worth $1.99/200 Wii Points.
  • This is the first game since the original Just Dance to not receive a nomination for a Kid's Choice Award.
  • This is the first game to have a DLC routine that was released later on a certain console: in this case, it's the Sing Along version of 'Let It Go on Xbox One.
  • On the Wii version of Just Dance 2015, there is a glitch where an avatar that has the price of five or twenty Mojo Coins will have its price changed to fifty Mojo Coins. The glitch will continue on to the next avatar after the game has been reset after the said avatar has been purchased. Later copies of the game may have this bug fixed.
  • If saved data from the previous Just Dance games is found by Just Dance 2015, the avatars for the following tracks are unlocked:
  • When making a new dancer card, it will automatically detect the console's selected country and use the flag for the country in question. For example, if your console is set to England, your dancer card will contain the U.K. flag.
  • This is the second game to not have a beta dancer in the PAL cover, after the original.
  • The menu and gameplay has looked similar to the 7th Gen version of Just Dance 2016 and Just Dance 2017.
