Undeniably charming, challenging, and creative. You'll fall in love by the end of the first level, and there are so many great character designs. Puts a unique spin on concentration games. Amazing music, and nearly impossible to put down.

I don't know how this game has got a Very Positive score on the page, because this is a terrible port. While it's really charming, and the music is just a joy to my ears, the controls are terrible, I keep failing the rythem for no reason what so ever, it feels completly luck based if I can actually perform the action on screen, XB1 controller, XBOX 360, and keyboard controls, nothing works out. If someone who has had this problem and has fixed it could help me, I'd be more then willing to re-do this review.
Currently I give this game a Sonic Boom out of 10, oh yea I went there.

There are a lot of reviews I saw-- and that you'll also see-- talking about how this is a bad port and how there are a lot of bugs and how it may even be unplayable. There are some bugs, and I've had a few issues here and there, but overall I think I fixed them. Read more info below.

tl;dr, even though there are some bugs, I really recommend this game. If you can get it during a summer/winter sale, even better. It's a lot of fun!

The first thing: even if it's set to english voiceover, it won't always be... well... in english. In configuring, I just hit right to Japanese and then right back onto English and that fixes the problem. Found this fix in the guides page.
The second thing: Lag. Especially in report 2, there's a lot of lag that I thought made the level unplayable. I went from 1280x720 60hz to 1280x720 40hz and that solved the issue. As far as I can tell, the audio is synced up right, because as long as I wasn't looking at the screen I did alright even when lag was an issue.
Lastly: input lag. Haven't found a fix for this yet, but sometimes my inputs don't work quite right. It makes a perfect report hard, but it's not often enough to really frustrate me. I can do the consecutive dance mode no problem.

So hopefully this helps if you're having some bug issues. Have fun!

It's a rhythm game, if you like rhythm games, you'll like this one. The soundtrack has different genres of music and little 'episodes' for every song. Overall, pretty fun and a classic

Almost impossible to beat, but still absolutely awesome :D Space Channel series is one of my all-time favorite rhytmn games, it's just delightfully whacky and fun to listen to! Space Channel Part 1 needs a Steam release too though, it's slightly better for beginners.

For future reference for myself, Auto-Play with X360 controller: Hold RT+RB+LT+LB then press B, Y, X

Chu, chu.

Holy crap. Holy crap. Holy crap. This game is incredible. This is Parappa the Rapper on Steroids. This game is the absolute GREATEST GAME EVER CONCIEVED.

I had no idea what to expect from this game. I knew it was a rhythm game, but that's all I knew. Let me break down my experience so far with the game for anyone curious.

I started off on a space station, reporting for space news on space channel 5. Some space rogues had taken the station over and were forcing all the space citizens to space dance. It was my space job to space rescue them all. I blasted all the space minions with the power of my funky-fresh, 80's blacksploitation soundtrack moves and finished the first level off by out-singing three super-powered space karaoke robots.

By this point I can barely contain myself, I am almost at the point of involuntarily emptying my bowels from the sheer force of my own maniacal laughter. If you're not on board yet then you have terrible taste and should reconsider your life choices.

The next level opened with the space mayor, who bares a striking resemblance to Doctor Robotnik, being space-kidnapped by the rhythm rogues. It was once again up to me and my funky newsteam to go and rescue him. The ground troop leader took him to Space Seaworld, where mutated space plants had captured a musical class of primary school kids. I rescued the children flawlessly, before moving on to the space-boss. Oh no! My reporter protagonist, aptly named "Ulala" has been tied up in the tentacles of the slimy space pirhana plant. I struggle to battle the plant as my avatar makes hilariously tasteless jokes about being sexually aroused, but emerge victorious! Once again destroying my enemies with the power of space dance just after beating a rival network's reporter in a space electric guitar battle. We rescue the space president who proceeds to warm our hearts with a beautiful solo that would touch the hearts of even the most jaded of gamers, before being kidnapped once again. Dude really needs better bodyguards.

Our news team doesnt have to research for long before we have a hot new lead, but oh no! The space police and their highest ranking officer, Cyote Ugly in Space, is trying to stop us! Her giant, breast-shaped space cruiser is launching mammary missiles at us! Ulala and her trusty sidekick manage to beat her in a space drum battle, but no! it was a trap all along, orchestrated by the head of the space baddies! We've got to get back to Space Station 5 and rescue Space channel 5's commanding officer, Space Michael Jackson. No, I'm not even kidding. You have to rescue Space Michael F*cking Jackson with the power of dance.

I have to stop for now, my chest hurts too much to go on.

11/10.

If you like rhythm games or Japanese Anime, it's worth a go. Colorful, imaginative, cheesy, and challenging.

[Help With the Configuration:]
When you play, Steam lets you choose or configure. Configure doesn't save changes.
To configure the game (resolution, full screen, and more):
- Right Click Game > Choose Properties > Local Files Tab > Browse Local Files
- Copy config.ini to My Documents\Sega\Space Channel 5 Part 2
- Edit config.ini with notepad or a text editor
Full_Screen=1 for Full Screen
Resolution= 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4 (These are the 5 Rez choices in Steam's SC5P2 Config)
Volume Numbers Represent 0-100 Percentages
You're On Your Own messing with the controls :p

There is a section of the game where you destroy a giant robot by making Michael Jackson go "HOO!"

I don't need to say anything else...
