When I heard that Ubisoft was coming out with The Hip Hop Dance Experience I was beyond excited! We’re huge fans of ‘dance’ games for our systems, but all the dance games have lacked any real hip hop songs, so I was beyond excited to try this out.
For both the Xbox Kinect and Wii The Hip Hop Dance Experience used celebrity choreographers to create the dance moves. You’ll find tracks from over thirty of the most chart topping artists today such as Drake, Lil’ Wayne, Nicki Minag, and Snoop Dog. You’ll also find a few artists from ‘back in the day’ like Outkast and Run-DMC, plus sooo many more!
From Run-DMC to Chris Brown, Rob Base to Nicki Minaj – this is the first dance game with a tracklist dedicated to the coolest genre in music. With moves developed by celebrity choreographers Laurieann Gibson (Nicki Minaj Creative Director, BET’s Born to Dance) and Dave Scott (So You Think You Can Dance, Battle of the Year), dance like a true artist to 30 years’ worth of hip-hop’s biggest hits.
Customize your avatar with hundreds of looks and accessories to express your personal fashion sense. Trigger lavish visual effects as you progress through the game. Master professional-level choreography with 3 difficulty levels for each song. Experience the world of hip-hop through music, dance, and design.
With a variety of unique game modes, including fun multiplayer parties and dance battles, The Hip Hop Dance Experience is the ultimate way to drop it like it’s hot with all your favorite hits.

I’ve only tried the Dance Party mode so far, you can pick the song you’d like to dance to and each song also lets you know (by flames lit up) the difficulty of the song. Difficulty aside, the songs are all fun to dance to, and even if you’ve never danced or done a hip hop dance move in the past, this is a great game to play to kick up your activity level, or just have a fun time with the family!
My only real complaint about The Hip Hop Dance Experience is the ‘break’ part of every single song. The song kind of pauses your dance moves and the ‘character’ on the screen breaks out some break dancing moves, which no one in their right mind playing this game should attempt in their living room, this part of the game really is to give you a break, there are no scores, but when I’m playing, I really don’t want to stop for it…
The Hip Hop Dance Experience is rated T for teens. I play with my younger daughters (7 and 9) and they love it. There’s no profanity in the songs, but it is hip hop, so what you hear on the radio from any hip hop song is basically what you get in the game.
You can purchase The Hip Hop Dance Experience at most retailers or online on Amazon.com.
