Just Dance 2014 (also known as Just Dance 5) is the fifth game in the Just Dance series, developed by Ubisoft Paris, in collaboration with Ubisoft Milan, Ubisoft Reflections, Ubisoft Bucharest, Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Montpellier. It was released for current-generation consoles on 8 October 2013 in the United States, and it was released as a launch title for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and is rated E10+ by the ESRB.[1] It was officially announced at Ubisoft's E3 2013 press event. This is the first game in the series to have a year in the title instead of the installment number. A sequel Just Dance 2015 was released in October 2014 for all current game consoles.

Gameplay[edit]

As with previous Just Dance games, players are judged on their ability to mimic on-screen dancers performing a routine to a chosen song. All versions include the Classic free-dance mode from previous games, in which routines may be solos, duets, quartets, or, on consoles that support six players, sextets. For each graded move, each player receives a rating of Perfect, Good, OK, or X, and receives points in proportion to this rating.[2] Up to four players can play at once, except on the Xbox One console, which supports up to six.[3] The game also supports karaoke on consoles with a microphone.[2] Players are rewarded for singing the right notes with points, but are not penalized for singing incorrectly.[2][3]

Selected songs have available unlockable alternate routines and modes in addition to the Classic mode. These alternate routines may be labeled Alternate, Extreme, for particularly difficult routines, Sweat, for particularly strenuous ones, Mashup, in which portions of other choreography are spliced together to form a single routine, or On-Stage, three-player choreographies in which one player dances in a lead role while two players dance backup routines.[2] Party Master Mode, exclusive to the Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of the game, is an updated form of the Puppet Master Mode featured in the Wii U version of Just Dance 4, in which one player uses the Wii U GamePad or Xbox SmartGlass to change the game's rules, current song, and specific moves for other players.[2] Dance Quests from Just Dance 4 and Non-Stop Shuffle mode are not present in the game.

The World Dance Floor mode, available on all consoles, is a competitive online multiplayer mode structured like a massively multiplayer online game.[2] All players worldwide dance to the same playlist, compete for rankings on a leaderboard, and can share each other's AutoDance clips.[2] A Wi-Fi connection, and on Xbox consoles, an Xbox Live subscription, is required to play this mode.

AutoDance clips are short clips of player dances recorded by the console's camera and set to music. AutoDance videos can be directly shared on Facebook, Twitter, and the Just Dance AutoDance network.[2]

The difficulty levels of songs have changed from numbers 1-4 (as in previous games) to Easy, Medium, Hard, and Hardest.[4][5]

Track listing[edit]

The game contains 50 tracks.

Dance Mash-Up Mode[edit]

33 songs are known to be played in this mode. Most Dance Mash-Ups must be purchased by mojo points in the shop, but some are unlocked monthly. Gold moves return to the dance mash-ups since their absence in Just Dance 4. However, some mash-ups do not have Gold Moves in them. Difficulties must be viewed in the hi score screen for the Mash-Up. All of them cost 5 Mojo points each.

Party Master Mode[edit]

Party Master Mode (an upgraded version of Puppet Master Mode) is a feature exclusive to the Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of the game. In this mode, one player will take control of the role of Party Master, which is responsible for changing the choreography in real time. For this, the player must use the Wii U GamePad or Xbox SmartGlass to choose one of four dance moves that are displayed on the controller's touch screen. Sometimes the "Take a Pose" button appears. When pressed, the TV screen will display a pose which other players must match. Whichever player best mimics the pose receives a 1,000 point bonus. Also, the player can choose to switch the current song, further altering the choreography.

10 songs are known to be played in this mode. Difficulties have been added in this game, all of which are the same as the difficulties for the original choreographies.

Battle Mode[edit]

In this mode, players compete against each other in specially made routines, where one song goes against another. Players can play against the AI or human players for three rounds. If a player wins a round, they will have their song play in the next round. Whoever wins the most rounds wins the battle.

There are 5 battles. Kiss You vs. Pound The Alarm is accessible by default but the other three battles must be unlocked in order for them to be playable.
