Just Dance 3 is the latest instalment in the Just Dance dancing game franchise. It's a doddle to pick up and play, as all you need to do is hold onto a Wii Remote and copy the on-screen stick men's dance moves to gain points. With a whole host of catchy songs both new and old, there's bound to be something to persuade them to get up off the sofa and dancing around like there's no tomorrow.
With it's simple premise and controls - when not wanging the Wii Remote around, the menu's are navigated with simple pointing and button pressing - Just Dance 3 is a good game for kids and adults alike. What may cause a bit of frustration and confusion is the rate at which the moves scroll, and deciphering what the picture wants you to do before it's gone past - although plenty of kids may well not care how well they're doing.
With nothing in the way of sex, violence or swearing, Just Dance 3 is a thoroughly family friendly affair. The scariest things your kids may come across here are your dance moves.
Just Dance 3 is made for multiplayer sessions, and lets up to four people join in with the dances, each with their own Wii Remote. There's a few different modes to try - like the 'Simon Says' mode, where you need to follow the dance routine until a special prompt telling you to clap in time, stop moving or spin around appears. There's also a few songs with special 'Hold My Hand' choreographies, where up to eight players form a line linked by Wii Remotes and try to copy the dance moves as best they can.
