- controls are hard to get used to, even if you re-bind
- all music pieces got a 'modern' makeover without ruining them
- illustrations are wonderful
- could have some more songs, but for the price it's alright

I'd say don't buy it if you're not into music/rhythm games, but if you are and have a few bucks to spare, get it.

It seems like the rhythm-action genre, although seemingly dying as of late, is where to go if you are look for games that are equal parts quirky and charming. I found myself drawing many parellels between this game and Elite Beat Agents, and as you can tell from my user name, that is a definite plus. The cut scenes are wonderfully drawn in comic book style and have an offbeat, often satirical sense of humor, and the story is just as fun as the gameplay (I used a mouse to play, personally, as I found it easier than keyboard controls, no matter how many times I changed the default layout. That said, I can see where this game would fare much better on a touchscreen or tablet, and it does, in fact, have touchscreen capabilities). Even during the gameplay, which has a sort of Dance Dance Revolution feel to it in terms of layout but are hilariously set up like "battles", if you dare take your eyes off the notes for a moment, you'll notice many crazy and entertaining things going on in the background.

Best of all, and perhaps the most important part of any music game, is the music itself. As the title and description implies, the hero is the composer Frederic Chopin, revived in the modern world for reasons unknown to him and finding himself confronting many people with different musical styles. For each confrontation, the music is a piece by Chopin, masterfully remixed into the style of both the region and the type of musician you're facing in the level. From mellow reggae to exciting wild western; from Celtic dance to my personal favorite, a hip-hop inspired track that manages to be haunting at the same time, you've never heard Chopin like this, and you likely never will again. And fortunately, the soundtrack is included with the game itself, no strings attached. So do yourself a favor and give this one a try. Even if you find yourself disliking the actual game, the price is well worth it for the soundtrack alone.

BEFORE YOU POINT OUT MY TIME PLAYED: I've played much more of this game on a tablet. My review for the PC version will be based on the difference in playability between the two. I've played enough to come to a conclusion about that.

Frederic: Resurrection of Music is a rhythm game where you catch falling notes onto piano keys at the bottom of the screen. Think of Beatmania without the turn table, and you've basically got it. The timing for a perfect hit takes a little getting used to, because it's relative to the center of the actual key on the piano itself. Since a black key is much shorter than a white key, a perfect hit on a black note will be higher up on the board than a white note. Otherwise it's fairly simple, with normal notes, hold notes, and swipe notes where you move across as you hit a key (more on that later). The note patterns are fairly good, and fit the pace of the songs. The music is all Chopin compositions redone in various contemporary music styles. The songs are...alright. The western themed one is pretty terrible, but they're all still recognizable as Chopin. It's also worth saying that the story is absolutely insane. Nothing makes sense and it's pretty great.

First and foremost, this is a game meant for tablets. There have been tablet games that have made the jump to steam with varying amounts of success, but Frederic is absolutely designed for a multitouch screen. Before you even boot the game up, it asks if you want to launch the touchscreen version instead. To get around most people not being able to touch their monitors to make things happen, you're given two other control styles that you can mix and match as you want; keyboard and mouse. Keyboard sounds like it would make sense, since you're emulating touching keys on a piano, but it never actually feels right. You can reconfigure the keys to anything you want (except for the space bar, which is reserved for using a special move), but it's still just not a very natural feel. You could probably get somewhat used to it with enough times, but remember, the timing on a perfect black note is different than a perfect white note. So, every other finger has to hit a note slightly earlier than the others.

Remember how I mentioned slide notes? They're meant for you to touch the key and then swipe your finger across the piano. You can't do this with a keyboard, naturally, so those are some points you're just not going to be able to get. Now, you can use a mouse instead and just click the keys, which will allow you to hit slide notes. But then you have some hold notes that continue as other notes are coming down, since it was made with multitouch in mind, which makes the mouse not ideal for that situation. Then there are bonus golden notes that fly up from the piano for extra points. On the tablet, you just tap the note to get them. On the PC, you could click on it with the mouse, but if you're using the mouse to play then you're probably too busy hitting other notes or holding a hold note to go click it. You can also collect those notes by pressing a key on the keyboard, but that key is random each time. So have fun with that.

If you have a tablet or a good phone, I would definitely recommend getting Frederic there if you're a rhythm game fan. It's definitely the way the game is meant to be played and works just fine there. There are two bonus levels in that version that are locked behind DLC (as opposed to this Steam version which has them for free as unlockables), but the bonus levels only cost a dollar total and the base game itself is $2. It's the way the game was meant to be played, and you're just going to get a subpar and sometimes frustrating experience on the PC.

Now, there are two reasons why you might actually want to get the Steam version. If you DO have a touchscreen of some sort for your computer (or if you're using a Surface or something), then you can play the game the way it's supposed to be played and it will work just fine. You would be paying $3 more compared to an app store version, but you do get the soundtrack as an extra if you really want that. The other reason may be if you have a Beatmania controller you can plug into your computer. The keys on the controller match up to the keys in game, so that might actually be kinda cool. Unfortunately, you still won't be able to do slide notes, and unless you play it one handed you're definitely not going to get any bonus gold notes. It's enough of a novelty though that it might be worth playing with.

If neither of these conditions apply to you, then don't bother getting Frederic on Steam. It's just not the way this game is supposed to be played.

Jogo com músicas bem legais! Você pode jogar com o teclado, mouse e até touchscreen. História também bem legal envolvendo a atualidade com o antigo compositor clássico Frédéric Chopin.

Funny little music rhythm game but nowhere near easy. Even on too easy difficult setting it isn't really easy. The slightly confusing UI layout and input controls might not really help to make it easier though. Even if you can customize your keyboard layout I really haven't found a setting that makes it playable instantly. Difficulty in levels also fluctuate quiet significantly between the stages some earlier ones I found harder than some of the later ones and the last two are extremely hard suddenly notes seem to come from everywhere. So be warned this can be quiet a challenging game. Not sure how somebody will be able to survive the higher difficulty levels.

The presentation however is very nice and funny. Using a ressurected Chopin is a genius idea. If you like pieces of Chopin even though modernized with modern music styles this might be your game otherwise I would say better stay away from it.
