"A surprisingly fun rhythm based game with super cheezy voice acting, and an equally weird story. Still, very fun, just don't take it too seriously!"


“the game is quite fun, the music catchy, and the story playful”

Unfortunately, a quirky presentation does not make up for poor design. While the game may have some charm, it is let down by its execution. Three examples:

- The game is designed for touch controls, not keyboards. That is a limited market, and it is made worse by very poor rebinding options. You can't spread controls adequately across the keyboard because the numberpad and several other keys cannot be bound.

- "Easy" mode does not make the gameplay (which is quite tough at times) any easier at all. It's the same flood of notes at the same speed. The difference is that it simply lets you win pretty much no matter how badly you do. So much for any sense of achievement.

- Worst of all, the autosave system is terribly designed. After winning a battle, you are presented with a screen allowing you to go to the main menu, replay the battle or continue. If you go to the main menu, you'll resume after that battle, right? NO! It takes you back to the START of the battle. Want to save after a battle? Well, you'll have to skip through all the cutscenes and quit at the start of the NEXT battle in order to do so. Utterly bizarre.

Add in the fact that the game can be completed in under two hours, and it's hard to recommend.

I should have known I wouldn't enjoy this given how the previous game ended. chopin becomes some kind of weird ♥♥♥♥♥♥ with a keytar at the end of the first game, and then you spend this game running around playing a lot of music that sounds good but some pairings don't make sense, like pairing an abba sounding song with a kiss themed band, cause that makes sense, I saw "Hiss" and was obviously psyched to play a kiss themed song, turns out to be abba and I knew I wasn't gonna enjoy this. baring in mind I skipped every god damn cutscene cause I could not stand them this time around, I watched the first one, realised this was how they were gonna do the rest of them and decided forget it I'll just skip through everything. and honestly I feel like I dodged a bullet with that decision given how much I disliked the rest of the game. Now to explain how impossible it is to play this on pc, so I played the last game with my mouse and had a generally good time the story was dumb and the ending fairly awful, but the music was good , this time you cannot play with a mouse no matter how good you are with one. basically from the onset you are beset with a swarm of notes that you will miss most of, and as you go further it obviously gets harder and more likely you will get a lower score. Keyboard is no better you're undoubtedly off tempo with keyboard, like I changed up the keybindings for keyboard and, even though I followed the tempo i still missed almost every note. So yeah controls are awful seriously just play this with touch input. there is a point where I almost quit because a German dancing robot hit me with a million simultaneous notes at once, like how do you hit all those notes at once? do i just slam my hand all over the keyboard and hope for the best?
Maybe I should have headbutt my monitor for best results.


Aside from some decent music, this game is a definite pass.

Play the previous title in the series, way more fun and you get to play as a proper respected Chopin, not some swaglord ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ who by the end of the game goes super saiyan for some ridiculous reason.

If you absolutely must get this game wait for a sale, do NOT buy at full price it's not worth it.

I'm going to be honest here and tell you that this seems like it would be a wonderful game except...the controls are terrible. Clicking is not fast enough to be able to catch notes AND the keyboard controls are awkwardly close and even when adjusting it doesn't work out. I'd rather go back to playing real piano than continue to play this. Call me when it gets some controller support or something.
