Frederic: Resurrection of Music is a short and simple game which employs a fundamental mechanic that will have you using your keyboard like a piano. The game’s best attribute is definitely its innovative feel (even though it borrows heavily from Guitar Hero and the like); and I also thought the soundtrack was pretty enjoyable. Unfortunately, many of the other areas of the game are somewhat lacking.

There is a story and there are cutscenes; some of it is OK and mildly amusing, some of it is cringe-worthy. I wonder if perhaps the game would have been better off without any of that. However, the game is already incredibly short, so I suppose the story helps to add a little fluff. There are only 9 songs in the campaign, and even on the hardest difficulty available it shouldn’t take that long to learn them and to beat them. Then there are also a small handful of bonus songs to unlock in the “arena” mode, but it remains a rather short game. There is, however, a score system, so there is some incentive to replay levels to try to better your score.

The heart and soul of the game is in the gameplay and the music. The central mechanic of the gameplay is quite novel and I found it to be quite refreshing to play something a little bit different. The main way to play is to use your keyboard to strike keys as the notes move across the screen, in a very similar fashion to Guitar Hero. I found this to be challenging and wildly fun. If you find yourself getting your fingers mixed up too much, you can also use the mouse to simply click the notes. This will make the game marginally easier, but (in my opinion) also a little less fun.

As for the music: I enjoyed the soundtrack very much. I even caught myself humming some of the songs in the shower and the car. When you own the game on Steam, you get a complimentary OST in the “music” tab of your library, so you can listen to the songs through Steam even without the game running.

Frederic: Resurrection of Music could use work in some other areas, certainly, but I felt the fresh gameplay and nice soundscape were more than enough to create an enjoyable experience— albeit a short one. I highly recommend this game for anyone who is thirsting to play something that is a little different and innovative.

Now this game right here is bulls h i t.

And I mean it.

Wait, stop, don't go away yet, PLEASE, I didn't mean to call it sh i t literally.

What we got right here is a decent rhythm game with some neat art and music. Ever heard of o2jam or osu!mania? You probably gonna like it then. You didn't? It's worth it anyway, and I'll tell you why.

The plot and voiceacting is bad. And I mean, B A D.

Bad to the point it breaks the bottom of the scale and pops up on the opposite side. Took me two hours to beat it, about half of which consisted of animated comics with some sweetest art, worst voiceacting and silliest script I've seen in a while.

NOT TO MENTION THIS GAME IS HIGHLY EDUCATIONAL:

Did you know that every time you, as the grand composer Chopin, release a new masterpiece, a rasta at the carribean gets mentally traumatized during childhood and has problems pulling chicks for the following 30 years? You do now.

Wanna know what happens when two classic composers battle? They make to fall asleep the ♥♥♥♥ out of each other to see whose skills are truly divine.

Oh, and of course, I wouldn't have ever guessed by myself, but judging by the accent, Chopin was British, despite his Polish origins.

All that combined gonna send you into emotional state where you're gonna do nothing but giggle, wonder what the actual f u ck is going on, giggle again, enquire if this s h it is legit, giggle, repeat. Or, if you're here just to fullcombo the ♥♥♥♥ out of the notes, you could just skip it all and jump straight to action. Missing the whole fun part, of course.

OVERALL RATING: CHOPEN OUT OF TEN, WOULD RISE FROM THE GRAVE TO MOCK MASTERMIND X ABOUT HIS PIGGY AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN.

P.S.: Oh, there's actually a sequel to this. I know where I'm spending next couple hours, folks.

I really wanted to like this game, I did. I spent a good while trying to get used to the cramped\hard to read notes that come stringing down at your keys on the keyboard. I tried remapping the keyboard controls. I cannot get grips on the fact that it is so hard to distinguist between the notes.. I do consider myself a rhythm-game aficionado, and sadly I cannot recommend this game. I did, however, like the videos between the songs: cool art style that I can appreciate.

Score: 6/10
