More or less the same as the first game but with different music

+Touchscreen support, great for windows 8 users
+Soundtrack is included for free for your account
+Soundtrack in game is good, this game has newer songs in it

>Art style and graphics is a hit and miss, I am not fond of it

-Story is bad
-Animation is poor
-The game is short
-Voice acting is cheesy
-Challenging, and hard to get used to
-Too high priced for what it is and how short it is
-This game is meant more for touchscreen, harder 0n keyboard

Download Size: 1899mb
Trading Cards: 8 in the set
Achivement Difficulty: Challenging and hard to 100%

While this review is much like my review for the first it is because the sequel is very much the same game just with different music. Everything else save the story is the same. The biggest issue this game has is it's focus on touchscreen, maybe at a much lower price I could recommend both the games but for what they are and how much they are to buy I would not recommend the game.

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.

Enough awesome idea by the developers, partly laughters while playing. References to Falco, Freddie Mercury and MJ are just sufficient to try it.

It's more fun if you play with someone :)

When I got this game I expected something like Dance Dance Revolution or Deemo..... My mistake... This game's story makes no sense at all and it's really REALLY corny. The controls are awkward and personally I don't like how the whole thing works.... In other words, don't get this game full price, if anything get it while it's on sale.

On the bright side I only spent 99 cents!
