Michael Jackson The Experience Vita review: Everything the PS3 version wasn't

Tap. Tap. Flick. Tap. Gunshot.

The only thing more tragic than an early celebrity death is the tidal wave of dollars that follow off the back of it, and this shallow touchscreen rhythm game is everything the full fat console version wasn't.

Zoom

True, the PS3 Experience wasn't exactly perfect, but you could, at least, dance like Michael Jackson - surely a pre-requisite for any Michael Jackson dance game.

KING OF PLOP
Instead, all you can do in this PS Vita version is... touch. Flick towards different parts of the screen for a patented MJ Point (©), draw a circle to make him spin, and tap to keep time.

Plus points? Fifteen over-played songs (admittedly crisp through Vita speakers), and stages from classic music videos like Bad and Thriller, not interactable in any way. You'd have more fun buying his Greatest Hits and tapping your foot along.

The verdict

You could get the original console version for the same price - and you can dance to it
