Bottom Line: I picked up Michael Jackson The Experience as a skeptic, but I had a lot of fun dancing with my sequined glove despite myself. There's not much of a game beyond mastering the choreography, but it's worth it if you ever wanted to dance with a legend.

The duets are great party pieces. The rabbit vs. Jacko jive of Speed Demon is unfailingly fun, as is the crotch-grabbing, chest-rubbing raunchiness of In The Closet – possibly one to avoid trying out with your gran over Christmas. Especially if you're Katie Waissel.

However, the game ends up feeling very much like any other dancing game - specifically Ubisoft's other franchise, Just Dance. It's basically Just Dance with a Michael Jackson facelift. There are some nice intro videos before each song that emphasize the fact this is a Michael Jackson game, but we kind of feel like someone as important to the entire history of music deserves a more fleshed-out treatment.

Even without alcohol coursing through my veins, I still had a reasonable amount of fun with the game. I've often seen people dancing to the likes of Thriller and Billie Jean and thought "Gee, I wish I could do that". Now I can. Kind of. After several hours with the game, I can not only keep up with virtual MJ, but could probably recreate the routines without even having him there to follow. It's not a particularly responsive game, especially compared to the technically superior Dance Central but for what it is, Michael Jackson: The Experience is an enjoyable one.

There are, however, some notable improvements made to the whole formula. Certain songs allow you to perform the background dancers' routines as well, both solo and with three other rump jigglers. The interface has gotten even tidier and more informative, depicted as coloured swooshes along the sides of the screen with little dots that act as star markers. Additionally, earning stars unlocks instructional videos to teach you how to perform three or so moves from each song, broken down by professional dancers with French accents.

In regard to the soundtrack, you'll perform zombie-like moves in "Thriller" and attempt a mean lean in "Smooth Criminal", which makes these tracks some of the more entertaining choices. However, you'll also come across ballads like "Earth Song" that are odd selections for the dance-only Wii version. These slower tracks would be best served with a karaoke gameplay mode.

Michael Jackson fans will definitely get something out of The Experience but it's still disappointing. Given that this is meant to be a celebration of the man's music and dancing there's a distinct lack of full music videos or concert footage. Instead what you're left with is a game that encapsulates Jackson's work, but fails to convey why it's so special

Even if you blame the limitations of the host console for many of these issues it still doesn't explain the often bizarre choice of tracks (why waste a song on the obscure Streetwalker and why is Earth Song included when it's nearly impossible to dance to?). There's also a paucity of music videos or other content - instead you get footage of some chorographers, which might be more practical for the game but really isn't the same thing.
