This is a great upgrade from JD 2016 and it packs in quite a few new songs. I appreciate the trial offering of the cloud-based version of the Just Dance music library. This version seems to provide the ability to replace all previous versions, as the "unlimited" feature allows access to all previous songs. After the trail there is a purchase option for the subscription to the unlimited service, and based on what I have experienced with it so far, I am likely to purchase it.I personally rarely play the game, but my children who are 8 and 6 absolutely love the game. It provides a great outlet for exercise while also having fun. The controls on the Nintendo Switch are intuitive and user friendly, and they seem much more responsive than the Wii U. This is likely a hardware improvement versus software.The one gripe I have is that you cannot play with both a Joy-Con controller *and* a mobile phone. You can either play with all mobile phone controllers *or* all Joy-Con controllers. I would love the ability to use both my phone and the Joy Cons when there are not enough Joy Cons to go around.Worth the purchase, even at the retail price. This is one product I can understand the retail price being what it is for a couple of reasons: The included trial of Just Dance Unlimited, and the licensing requirements for the original songs included in the game.

How do you play Just Dance on the Nintendo Switch exactly? Easy, using the joycons as you would use a wii remote controller.But why stop there? The advantage of playing Just Dance on the Switch is that if by any chance you need to start an impromptu dance party literally anywhere, you could very well do so. Just pull out your switch tablet, grab them joycons and get moving.The one disadvantage JD on the Switch has against, lets say, the Wii U version, is the lack of a camera. Which immediately removes camera related features you may be used to. Like Autodance, Video challenges, Community remix contributions and Just Dance world cup video entries. If you dont really care or know what any of those things are, then you are good to go with this version.

I am giving it 5 stars because it resolves one big issue with the Wii and Wii versions, you have to hold the huge and heavy Wii Remote in one hand while dancing. This was causing a huge problem for me since no matter how much I played or how little, my arm was constantly sore from holding that Wii Remote all the time. I have zero arm or shoulder problems. Well this fixed the problem since the joy-con is much lighter, I don't even feel like I am holding anything and I can play normally now without arm soreness.With that being said this game is still not without issues, like previous versions of Just Dance, not all the moves register even if you do them exactly, it just seems like the controls miss some moves and its always the same moves every time when doing the song. Its obvious that some songs are programmed much better than others. Some songs you can hit 4-5 stars the first time, other songs I can barely hit 2 stars no matter how much I practice. Basically, you still won't be able to get 100% points on any song with the Joy-Con controls. Perhaps someone here has gotten a perfect score on a song, but throughout all the time I have played every Just dance game for Wii and Wii U I have not gotten a fully 100% perfect score on any song,Because the switch is portable and includes a screen, you can break out the switch and dance at any time, the 2 Joy-Con's included with the Switch do the job, so you don't need to buy or bring anything extra if you are going portable.This game also allows you to use your smartphone as the controller, how good of an idea that is, well that is debatable, however you cannot combine controls, so you can't have 3 players using Joy-Con's and 3 players using smartphones, all players must use the same control scheme.This game does offer incredible replay value though, there are a ton of modes in the game, and a ton of unlockables, much more value than the first games in the series. You do miss the camera modes since the Nintendo Switch is missing a camera.The unlimited subscription is only a trial, and lasts for 3 months, otherwise you have to pay more money to continue playing the songs included on unlimited, thankfully I knew about this subscription model before buying the game. I won't be purchasing a subscription to unlimited as I don't think its worth it as there are still many songs from the earlier games that I like that are missing in the unlimited section. I suggest playing the songs that are on unlimited during the 3 months then revert back to the original set of songs that came with the game after the subscription expires. You still get the same amount of unlocked songs that you would have gotten in previous just dance games before they started the subscription model so its not like they are taking away original content with unlimited.
