Overview
Frederic: Resurrection of Music is a rhythm game in the tone of Guitar Hero, but you play a piano instead. You are the reanimated corpse of the famous composer Frederic Chopin and you travel around the world having musical duels with stereotyped characters and did I mention remixed music?

The Pros:
  • Fun Story and Cutscenes - The game features a bit over an hour of cutscenes as you progress through the story and encounter all sorts of musicians. The animations are choppy and the voice acting amateurish, but the end result is fun, enjoyable and very stereotypical. Don't expect this game to be serious, 'cause it's not - and that's great!

  • Great Music! - The most important aspect of a rhythm game is the music, and Frederic doesn't disappoint! There are a total of 12 tracks you can play - 9 story related and 3 bonus. All of them are reinterpretations of the original Chopin's plays, but in contemporaneous styles: electro, reggae, country, R&B, you name it. The sound quality is also superb and the music is very catchy.

  • Complimentary and DRM-Free OST - The game gives you the tracks in the game for free as high bit-rate MP3 files, so you can listen to them anytime, anywhere. A good gesture from the developers! Kudos!

  • Gameplay Choices - The game lets you choose whether to play this game using the keyboard or the touchscreen! That's right! Native touchscreen support for the tablet users who want to be the next virtuoso! For the majority of us who will use the keyboard anyways, it's still very enjoyable, and as a pro-tip from me, change the controls from AWSEDRF to ZSXDCFV. The new spacing of the keys resembles much better with piano keys, so you accidentally press the wrong button much less often.

The Cons:
  • Moderate learning curve. - The songs are relatively very easy, and the songs are repeated segments that you will most likely have in muscle memory by your second playthrough. At first, however, it seems really hard, especially with the default controls, but after you play it for a while it will come to you.

  • Level Rating System - I have no idea what the game wants from you when it gives you the stars at the end of the level. I found myself ending up with one star despite having a 98% accuracy.

  • Almost no difference between difficulties - There are four difficulty steps: Too Easy, Normal, Hard, Chopin. The last two have a negligibly small amount of extra notes compared to the others, and the only real difference between them is the number of points you get for hitting the notes and the amount of notes you are allowed to miss, as the harder the difficulty, the more notes it takes to fill the progress bar and the more it will decrease when failing to press a note. On Chopin, you are expected to have a 90-95% hit rate to pass, which is not hard after you get used to it.

Conclusion:
This game is a good rhythm game, albeit short, but features original, awesome music and an interesting concept. Recommended for those who like remixes and comedy indie games.

If you like music..

or if you like classical music...
or if you like modern music...
or if you like rhythm games...
or if you like fun games...
or if you like music games...
or if you like great soundtrack...

You've definitely like this game. Because Frederic: Resurrection of Music is one of a kind indie rhythm games on steam, and its featuring remixes from Frederic Chopin composition in many music genres.

For the gameplay, maybe its too hard to play it on normal. Sometimes too easy is hard too. Because of default key setting in keyboard is near impossible to master. So, change the key bind is recommended. I'll manage to play this game in chopin level with A+S+D+F (Left Hand) and I+O+P (Right Hand) without any problem. So, its "easy to learn but hard to master" kind of games.

Anyway, this game is one of my favorite games on steam, especially for the brilliant soundtrack.

A brilliant idea that could have been realized into one of the most interesting rhythm games of all time suffers from bad design. Both "Frederic" games' control scheme, both on PC and on touchscreen, is just too cluttered to be understandable. It's to easy to get the order of the notes mixed up. Not to mention that it's extremely uncomfortable to have your hand in this position. The fact that I'm someone who's familiar with keyboard instruments may have something to do with the controls bothering me, making them unnatural and confusing. Also, like all rhythm games, during a song will come a moment where what is heard and what is played has nothing to do with reality, which will also irritate and confuse musicians. Beyond that, the soundtrack is not at all anythign spectacular. Most remixes tend to simplify the originals in attempts to modernise them. As a fan of rhythm games and a musician, I can't recommend this. It's confusing in design and sometimes wrong in sound. However, this is absolutely subjective, so I would recommend trying "Frederic" out. The premise is fun and there are a few moments worth your while, if you manage to get over everything I've said. If you think that the above mentioned things would not bother you - enjoy being the resurected and modern version of one of the best composers the classical era has to offer.

Frederic: Resurrection of Music is a great little indie rhythm game that will certainly entertain those interested in the genre. Don't get me wrong - this is not something paradigm-changing like Crypt of the NecroDancer or the first wave of Guitar Hero, but the price doesn't suggest that, either.

What-you-see-is-what-you-get with this one. You use the keyboard, with your hands in the typing position, in order to play notes piano-style to the appropriate rhythm. It doesn't have the highest production value in terms of music or graphics, but the addictiveness that comes with any great rhythm-based game is surely here.

Pros:
+Incredibly cheap price for a game that will certainly entertain you as long as you wish (considering there is story mode as well as just trying to beat your high score with multiple difficulty levels)
+Its quite fun for nearly all skill levels
+While the music is not Danny B in quality, it is catchy enough

Cons:
-Some people complain about awkward controls, etc. I don't completely disagree. They certainly take some getting used to, and are probably never as smooth as other great rhythm titles.
-Doesn't really bring anything new to the table, or push the genre forward. This is usally a bigger deal for me, but considering the price tag, I was pleasantly surprised with what this title does right.

Bottom line: if you are into rhythm based titles, this is certainly worth it, even at full price. I was planning on buying it and most likely refunding, but I'm keeping this little indie gem.
