I love playing this either alone or in groups. In groups, even people without Wii controllers find themselves either really enjoying the facial expressions of the "real" participants or doing the moves anyway.

I have both Just Dance and Just Dance 2. I'm abysmally uncoordinated, so I don't care about the scoring. Never going to hit that accuracy. But it keeps me going, and even if I have a tendency to stand still while trying to "get" the arms initially, the arm movements get my core engaged too.

Actually, I think the game works better for exercise if you aren't obsessed with the scoring--you're more apt to make bigger motions.

My hubby bought JD2 as my reward this week for doing great. How fun!! I put it in and an hour later, I was dripping and according to my HRM I'd burned 972 calories! I'm hooked!

Impossible standards just make life difficult.

Weight loss is a lot like hiking. Instead of looking up at the top of a hill/mountain and thinking I won't be able to do it, I just keep my eyes 5 ft. ahead of me and eventually, I'll make it to the top! Just like weight loss, if I look at the 66 pounds I need to lose, it is overwhelming. I'm just going to concentrate on 10 pounds at a time. Before I know it, I'll reach my goal!

Just Dance was one of the games we inherited when we got the Wii from my husband's co-worker, and for Christmas, my BIL gave me Just Dance 2. We played a little with it on Boxing Day, but so far all I've been able to do on my own was the Mash Potato!

I love this game too - just got it and have only even tried a few songs, but I couldn't believe I was sore the next day! It made me sweat and my heart pump, but didn't feel like my muscles were working that hard (YAY!). It's a big part of my workout plan for tonight.

I'm trying to get back to doing Wii more since it's been sitting there for a while and I even have some of the Wii fit games, etc.

I think the sweat drops are how much it will make you sweat - honestly, I don't remember the gears, but I've only had it on a couple times.

Have fun dancing!!!

I picked up Just Dance 2 the other night, because I wanted something fun to motivate my wife. The elliptical is "boring," and she doesn't want anyone knowing her weight, so she doesn't use the Wii Fit.

I played Just Dance with them for about 75mins last night until I had to go pick up my oldest daughter from her dance classes. She's been dancing for 13yrs. I left the wife and 11yr old daughter dancing.

I came back 45mins later... they're STILL dancing! I had to make people stop and go to bed after they'd been at it for 3hrs straight (small breaks though). My two daughters, both dancers, had a blast doing Ballywood numbers. I wish I could upload the video of them having a blast, even after the oldest had been at the dance studio for 5hrs last night, BEFORE her Just Dance time.

My abs are super sore today, along with my legs and arms. Wife is stoked about doing more of it tonight, too!

Questions that I have, b/c the instruction manual is lacking. When looking at songs to dance to, what are the gear and (sweat) drops? I figure they're difficulty (gears) and how much you'll sweat?

You never regret the workouts that you do. You regret the workouts that you DON'T do.

If I can do it, YOU can do it!

I'm investing sweat equity into... me

I worked out with Just Dance 2 for the first time this morning and I loved it! The Sweat Mode is cool because it gives you a goal to reach :)

I tried Dance Dance 2 on the Wii today for the first time - I am glad no one was home to watch me LOL. It was a challenge to watch the lady dancing and then look at the little ques at the bottom of the screen that lets you know what moves are coming next. Once I learn the routines I should be fine - but it was hilarious. I only did 10 min this morning but i will go back to it later on today. It was fun!

If you put Just Dance on challenge mode. There isn't much time in between songs and it goes for about 40 minutes.

I completely understand your point and you're right that if you don't have motivation and you find something that does give it to you, then it's worth the extra $10 for sure for you.

Me too, I got Walk It Out when Amazon had it as a gold box special. That's how I get all my games, I put them in my cart (don't buy them) and when I check my cart each day it will tell you at the top if the items in your cart have decreased in price or not.

I've saved so much money that way, not to mention no taxes and no shipping (if you buy $25 worth). I watch my pennies in everything that I do.

I'd like to get it, too, but am also waiting for a dip in price ($39 to me seems high, I hold out for at least $10 off!). I got Walk It Out for $20, and it's already helped me lose a few pounds and inches in two weeks, so it was definitely worth it. Plus my kids like it.

I know, I'm a penny-pincher. But I get great bargains!

I agree with KWANGAWOO. Wii Just Dance is my favorite Wii exercise game and I too find the sweat just pouring off me when I work out, but realize that I'm still having great fun! It's become my "go to" exercise when I really don't feel like exercising.

To be honest, as far as video games go, I found Wii Just Dance to be very reasonable -- I picked it up for $40 CAD. Most video games are like $70!

I read great reviews on this game on Amazon. I plan to add it to my growing pile of Wii exercise games when I see a really good price at Amazon (or locally) for it.

I love Wii Cheer 2 (have 1 too but 2 is better in my opinion) as well as Walk It Out.

hey there......thanks for this info. I love to Dance and so, it comes at a perfect time for me. I don't love Dance, Dance Revolution because of the mat, and this sounds like the perfect alternative.
Thanks again!
Have fun!

This is by far my favorite exercise game for the wii! It is so much fun and if you can go for an hour will help you burn a ton of calories, at least according to http://www.healthstatus.com/calculate/cbc , although I'm not sure how accurate that is? All I know is that the first time I tried this out I barely made it through 2 songs and even now, after a month of trying it out, after 15 minutes, sweat is pouring down my face! I highly suggest it!
