Bad news: Michael Jackson: The Experience ships with 26 songs on the disc. Good news: Michael Jackson: The Experience ships with 26 Michael Jackson songs. And not just Michael Jackson songs, but original master recordings - so you're actually hearing the songs as you remember them rather than cover versions.
The tracklist is culled from nearly 20 years of Michael Jackson albums, covering everything from Off the Wall to Blood on the Dance Floor. Fans will undoubtedly find something to complain about, but this is one of the first times I've ever played a rhythm game and liked every song.
Every song comes with it's own special video treatment. The game sticks with Just Dance's blurry neon look, but offers special touches reflecting on Michael Jackson's career. You've got a graveyard full of zombies and the signature red jacket for "Thriller," a subway station for "Beat It" and a rundown building full of gangsters for "Smooth Criminal." It's not much to look at, though at the same time, anything else on the screen would have been a distraction.
