So much more than war...
By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

For best results, please use the player below to cue up "Bad" by Michael Jackson and read this review along with the words to the song. (When you're ready, click play below, then begin reading at about 0:18.)


The Jackson game...
on PSV
is not the same...
as PS3.

Not good for groups...
with that small screen.
Gameplay for two...
to BIllie Jean.

Or alone.
Alone.
You're playing...
alone.

A touchscreen gaaame.
No cameras!
Sounds kinda laaame.
But what it does...
is solid stuff
Just try it 'cause...
It is still fun...
in different ways.

Carefully time all your tappin'.
Be good with all your swipes.
Enjoy for what it is.
Great for a couple nights.

Cause it's not bad.
Not bad.
Really not bad.
This game's not bad.
Not bad.
Not at all bad.

Don't call it bad.
Not bad.
It's so-so, but not bad.

It's not top-tier...
won't win awards, but I need to say again:
Not bad.

The music's good...
15 classics.
They're Jacko's best...
on this track list.

The other games...
were for big groups.
But now your time...
is tracing loops.
On Vita's screen.
In proper time.
Watch Michael dance.
Right in your hands.

Sometimes your vision's messed up.
By your frantic fingertips.
Dance well, watch Michael dress up.
In signature outfits.

Because he's rad.
He's rad.
Michael is rad.

The game's okay.
Okay.
Just okay.

For groups it's bad.
But one?
Really not bad.

It's overpriced.
It is.
But still nice.

There are more songs.
Way more.
On all other systems.

Only 15?
At least.
They're some of the best.

If you're a real huge fan...
you might consider this.
Surprisingly it is.
Not bad.

Michael Jackson: The Experience HD is a good game for what it is: a single-player rhythm game built for a touchscreen. There are two-player battle modes available, but most players will never use the feature, as it requires a second Vita and another copy of the game. It's different in nature, but an entertaining game in its own way.

Now tell me: Who's bad?
Michael Jackson: The Experience HD (Vita)
fullfullfullemptyempty
  • A decent touch screen-based music game.
  • Unlike console counterparts, far more suited for one player.
  • Short playlist...
  • ...of some of the greatest pop songs of all time.
  • Tough to really enjoy the on-screen action with fingers in the way.
